Over-Unity Hydrogen Researcher Hit by Apparent Arson

Pre-teens tinkering with witchcraft and matches appear to have been responsible for the tragic loss of property and research material of a scientist pursuing clean energy solutions.

CALIFORNIA, USA -- On Oct. 17, 2007, advanced electrolysis researcher, Ken Rasmussen left his home for the day only to return to find his garage-shop-office smoldering in ashes.

This was a couple of days before Southern California was ablaze, leaving many people there homeless; and this isolated fire further North apparently turned out to be caused by an act of ritualistic arson by local kids.  Alert neighbors used garden hoses to keep Rasmussen's separate house from catching on fire as well. 

Lost were years of notes and research literature from his personal hydrogen research as well as most of his office documentation, nearly all his tools, and nearly a third of his possessions. Luckily, his computers were in his house, not his garage at the time.  The fire left him without electricity to run his computer or natural gas with which to take hot showers for nine days.

Advanced Hydrogen Research

For several years , Rasmussen and his team have been involved in leading-edge, high-efficiency hydroxy gas generation from water, with apparent additional energy being harvested from yet-to-be fully understood forces of nature. The method and rate of gas generation they have achieved is proprietary, but challenges what the pioneer electrolysis scientist, Michael Faraday predicted to be possible.  Rasmussen's group is among a maverick set of researchers worldwide pursuing the ability to actually run vehicles on water via harnessing a yet mysterious energy force of nature.

Rasmussen is also a respected founding member of the New Energy Congress, which reviews various clean energy technology claims to identify the most promising of those, creating a Top 100 Clean Energy Technologies listing.  (Ref.)  He also runs an energy news, blog and talk show at

Not First Major Set-Back

A year ago we reported a situation in which a member of Rasmussen's research team was threatened at gunpoint. (Ref.)  A technician was allegedly run off the road near a rural intersection and accosted by four white, middle-aged males in black suits, carrying Glocks and Mac tens.  Using information which could only have been obtained by monitoring digital cell phones and e-mail, the assailants portrayed to the victim that they had total control over his personal life, and was told to remain silent and to not talk to government authorities.  He was told that if he did not comply, a family member would be killed.  The threat also included all associates if he did not stop work on the process immediately.

Another situation involved a demonstration a couple of years ago of the technology to a potential financier with loads of money, who apparently did not expect the device to perform as claimed.  When the person saw the device perform clearly to the specifications, his response was one of fear, and he backed out, because he did not want to "go up against Big Oil."

Arson Culprits

Six days following the fire, at dusk, Rasmussen saw two pre-teen boys and a young girl down the alley lighting matches and throwing them. He took his camera and went to where the teens were. As he approached, he heard the girl reciting what sounded to him to be a witch's spell -- something to the effect: "oh spirit of ... depart from us now".   She then tossed the lit match at dry brush and another wooden structure garage.

Rasmussen flashed a picture, which spurred one of the boys and the girl to flee the scene. But Rasmussen was able to speak to one of the 11-year-old boys, getting some names from him.

Rasmussen relayed this information to the Fire Marshal, who told him that matches had been found at several recent fires in the region. Matches were also found near Rasmussen's burned-down garage.

"Kids of this age don't read serious literature.  They get these ideas from [stories like] Harry Potter, and think spells and witchcraft are fun, with no mature responsible assessment of their actions," said Rasmussen.

The investigation is ongoing, and official charges have yet to be leveled.


Fortunately, Rasmussen's group's key technology was not lost in the recent fire.  But the fire is a major setback for Rasmussen personally, as well as for his personal research. 

Rasmussen did not have fire insurance at the time, having been in a lean cash flow period.  Tangible losses from the fire are estimated at over $50,000 USD.

I'm in shock and humbled at the concern and kindness I see primarily from the NEC group, as well as web site readers I never knew. It will not be forgotten.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
