For those who would like to learn from the father of sustainability who had a true dedication to spirituality and truth - there is no better book than Critical Path. This is a review of it.
"R. Buckminster Fuller is regarded as one of the most important figures of the 20th century, renowned for his achievements as an inventor, designer, architect, philosopher, mathematician, and dogged individualist. Perhaps best remembered for the Geodesic Dome and the term "Spaceship Earth," his work and his writings have had a profound impact on modern life and thought.
Critical Path is Fuller's master work--the summing up of a lifetime's thought and concern--as urgent and relevant as it was upon its first publication in 1981. Critical Path details how humanity found itself in its current situation--at the limits of the planet's natural resources and facing political, economic, environmental, and ethical crises.
The crowning achievement of an extraordinary career, Critical Path offers the reader the excitement of understanding the essential dilemmas of our time and how responsible citizens can rise to meet this ultimate challenge to our future."
There are some great imagineering clean energy ideas in the multiple papers and articles in this link.
There never was a clean energy or any kind of energy crisis - except the same old crisis of corruption and immorality our total society suffers. There was a time when that was not true but people will tell you that was because man only recently developed technology or had so many people on earth.

A doughnut-shaped Hydro-Magnetic Dynamo as large as a two-car garage could safely and reliably generate 1000 megawatts minus its 10-megawatt sustaining input power for 25 years or more with no fuel, no pollution, and minimal maintenance.
From 1992 to 1997 in Armenia the third prototype hydro-magnetic dynamo continuously generated a constant current of 6,800 amperes at 220 volts DC – 1.49 megawatts. Its toroid weighed 900 kilograms and had a diameter of 2 meters.
Water flow through the toroid enables the hydro-magnetic dynamo to function as an over-unity electrostatic transformer. Electromotive force is induced by windings around the toroid.
The hydro-magnetic dynamo's production cost is estimated at $500 per kilowatt. The hydro-magnetic dynamo’s electricity would be priced .1 cent per kilowatt-hour. Capacities can range from 100 kilowatts to 1000 megawatts. Seven 1000-megawatt hydro-magnetic dynamos can be vertically stacked to combine into a single 7000-megawatt fuel-less hydro-magnetic dynamo.
For comparison, Hoover Dam’s 17 generators have a total nameplate capacity of 2080 megawatts.

Arthur C. Clarke proposed building a space elevator using nanotubes and this might assist in that construction which would certainly be an amazing feat.
Force Fields were being developed by Tesla using Unified Force Theory despite what this report says. They might be right about this particular use of the Tesla Coil. To travel in space we might need this technology if the Alcubierre space/time bubble is not going to happen. I presume what can attract can also repeal with altered polarity.
"The system works by remotely oscillating positive and negative charges in each nanotube, causing them to chain together into long wires. Cherukuri's specially designed Tesla coil even generates a tractor beam-like effect as nanotube wires are pulled toward the coil over long distances.
This force-field effect on matter had never been observed on such a large scale, Cherukuri said, and the phenomenon was unknown to Nikola Tesla, who invented the coil in 1891 with the intention of delivering wireless electrical energy.
"Electric fields have been used to move small objects, but only over ultrashort distances," Cherukuri said. "With Teslaphoresis, we have the ability to massively scale up force fields to move matter remotely."
The researchers discovered that the phenomenon simultaneously assembles and powers circuits that harvest energy from the field. In one experiment, nanotubes assembled themselves into wires, formed a circuit connecting two LEDs and then absorbed energy from the Tesla coil's field to light them."
