Here's a great opportunity to get some exotic free energy technologies some deserved coverage among a wider TV audience. And you can help seed this initiative.

Ultimate Energy Showdown will demonstrate and prove or disprove new energy devices that could power our home, automobiles, and the electric grid. It combines the do-it-yourself, practical "does it work?" philosophy of Mythbusters with the scientific integrity and creative imagination of NOVA.

Jeane Manning wrote on her blog:

"The producer of groundbreaking documentaries such as Free Energy: Race To Zero Point, and Cold Fusion: Fire From Water — Chris Toussaint – is planning a new TV series that challenges the fossil-fuel paradigm. First, however, people have to spread the word that the show needs a $5,000 kick-start of funding and Kickstarter.com is the place where everyone can join together and make it happen."

I put up the first pledge. I hope you'll chip in your support as well for this very important and timely venture. A bunch of you chipping in just $5.00 could make all the difference, including for morale-boosting.

Co-hosts Matt and Carter will delve into the strange world of eccentric inventors and cutting-edge companies that are taking on the fossil fuel burning system that is powering (and polluting) our lives.

The fundraiser page includes a teaser intro to the series.

This series will introduce brave new innovators who are putting it all on the line to save our planet. In addition, Ultimate Energy Showdown will inspire young people to continue learning and pursue careers in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics.

"Imagine a car that runs on nothing but air or water, an electric car that recharges itself while you drive it. That technology is here today. What if your home allowed you to turn on all of your appliances at once and run them indefinitely free of charge? Sound impossible? It’s not."

Ultimate Energy Showdown will attempt to either prove or disprove the most compelling emerging technologies with fair, unbiased, scientifically-based benchmark tests. Every show will feature three or four different technologies with interviews by their inventors and independent technical consultants. They will be put to the test to demonstrate real-world applicability. Viewers will find out if a particular invention is real, or fails the Showdown Challenge.

Yes, there is a similar initiative hatching in Hawaii, and we should root for them as well.

Ultimate Energy Showdown rests on the cutting edge of what is scientifically imaginable and possible. There are many inventors and companies we will introduce to American audiences.

Free Energy: The Race To Zero Point was lifechanging

On May 11, 2010, New Energy Congress member and President of the New Energy Movement, Joel Garbon wrote:

Christopher's widely-acclaimed 1997 video "Free Energy: The Race To Zero Point" was my first introduction to the wondrous possibilities of breakthrough energy technologies and launched me on my own path to help usher in a New Energy Era on our planet so in need of it. It also directly or indirectly facilitated a cascade of wonderful and life-changing friendships that I prize. In gratitude, and in resonance with his vision, I wholeheartedly support Christopher in this next project.

I ask that you spread the word widely among your networks to help rally suport for this timely and important creation. Let's make this happen!
