Niagara Gazette — At the Tesla Center on the Niagara University campus, on land once designated an undevelopable brownfield, researchers from all over the world gather to design and build new, clean, inexpensive energy resources.
Imagine a brand new “city in a park” built around the majesty and beauty of Niagara Falls, a city where people are prosperous and proud, with businesses and institutions that attract people from all over the world. A city with world-class winter and summer recreation and sports facilities, a place where the Olympic-class ice skating events are booked for the next 50 years, where art museums and internationally renowned artists and performers clamor to be seen, a city where the most advanced energy production techniques on the planet are being created and distributed across the galaxy. Imagine you live here.
This is your home. You are the envy of your friends and family, who years ago moved away to far-off places and now wish they could come back home to their old neighborhoods.
This is your home, where crime is almost nonexistent and the hospitals almost empty and electricity is almost free.
You’re home, where the life expectancy of men and women is higher than nearly anyplace else in the world. Here, where the United Nations comes to discuss and solve the world’s problems, in the calm and serenity of this new international center for intellectual dialogue, here in your hometown, Niagara Falls.
Now, open your eyes and look at the work we have to do.

“Clap along if you feel like this is what you want to do … Come on!”
