"There is almost no area of human activity that would not be dramatically affected by the advent of new energy technology— especially matters of war or peace and health and the environment."

Infinite Energy and New Energy Foundation founder Dr. Eugene Mallove was murdered on May 14, 2004. His death has left a tremendous void in not only the daily lives of those who loved him, but also within the new energy field. Gene was a long-time advocate for new energy science and technology and perhaps the most well-known spokesperson for the field.

We were unsure whether the magazine and non-profit could continue without Gene's energy and commitment. Ultimately, we decided that we had to make a go of it, to try to carry on with Gene's vision. The magazine continues to have a dedicated audience and even though Gene's voice in its pages is desperately missed, Infinite Energy continues to publish. With the support of our fantastic donors, the non-profit New Energy Foundation has also been able to dole out over $1 million in grants to new energy researchers or organizations since Gene founded the organization in 2003.

Infinite Energy #56 was a tribute to Gene's life and work from his family and friends, published just after his murder. You only need to read one of these remembrances to understand what a kind, devoted person Gene Mallove was—but we hope that you will read them all to better learn the many facets of Gene's personality, interests and endeavors:

Gene had a science journalism career long before he started Infinite Energy. He wrote three popular science books: The Quickening Universe: Cosmic Evolution and Human Destiny, The Starflight Handbook: A Pioneer’s Guide to Interstellar Travel and Fire from Ice: Searching for the Truth Behind the Cold Fusion Furor.

Gene published extensively in the Washington Post “Outlook” section in the 1980s. Before forming Infinite Energy, Gene was editor for the three print issues of Cold Fusion in 1994. While he wrote numerous pieces for that short-lived magazine (which became a newsletter helmed by publisher Wayne Green), we reproduce here Gene’s three editorials from Cold Fusion:

Why “Cold Fusion”? (Issue 1, May 1994)
The Race for Cold Fusion Applications (Issue 2, June 1994)
What To Do About Uncle Sam? (Issue 3, July/August 1994)

Gene Mallove's impressive biography provides an overview of his many accomplishments. See the Wikipedia entry for additional details about Gene’s career.
