The American Business Awards recognizes the ideas of Nikola Tesla as a solution to the global energy crisis
Donald Lesiak, Professional Engineer and Board Member of the Tesla Memorial Society of New York, was selected as a Category Finalist for the "2008 Best Product Development Executive in USA" for Tesla's concept on Wireless Transmission of Electrical Energy over long distances
The American Business Awards is recognizing Tesla's idea of the wireless transmission of electrical power through the air and ground for long distance.
Donald Lesiak, Professional Engineer and a Board Member of the Tesla Memorial Society of New York, was chosen as a Finalist for the American Business Awards. Lesiak proposed a wireless solution for the world energy problem using Tesla's USA patents. Tesla's patents implements wireless transmission of electrical energy, without wires, for long distances.
Tesla Memorial Society of New York salutes the American Business Awards, held in New York City, June 12, 2008. These awards cover 27 major categories in management, technology and public relations on a global basis. The American Business Awards have truly become the nation's premeir business awards.

Tesla Tower in Shoreham Long Island (1901 - 1917) meant to be the "World Wireless" Broadcasting system

A Visit to Tesla Tower (June 10, 1990)
Tesla Memorial Society of New York and The Nikola Tesla Committee organized a visit to the Tesla Tower in Shoreham, Long Island on June 10, 1990. The famous Tesla Tower, so called Wardenclyffe Tower, was erected by Nikola Tesla on 1901 -1903 as the first broadcasting system in the world, and transmitting electrical energy without wires to the globe using the Ionosphere (the electrified upper part of the atmosphere of the earth important for transmitting radio waves around the globe). Under the solar radiation, molecoles of the upper atmosphere are being constantly transmitted into ions.
The visit to the Tesla Tower was done with the intention to express our views that the Tesla Tower foundation be designed as a national historical site. There are several Tesla Societies in Long Island today which are formed with the intention to build a Tesla Science Museum in Shoreham, Long Island. Tesla's laboratory was designed by the famous American architect and Tesla's friend, Stanford White. The laboratory is still standing in good condition. In front of Tesla's laboratory, there is a foundation of Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower which was an enormous structure underground connecting the Tower with the Atlantic Ocean. J.P. Morgan, the richest and most powerful man of that time, was a financier of the Tesla Broadcasting system. The Tower was designed as a world communications center and Nikola Tesla added to the project in that the tower would also be used for transmitting electrical energy without wires to the entire globe. Tesla wanted to saturate the globe with electricity as a dynamo so that everyone on the surface of the globe could obtain electrical light just by sticking wires into the soil and a electrical bulb would light. When J.P. Morgan heard about the Tesla project, he was asked: "How can we get money from the electricity which Tesla is supplying to every part of the world?" After that Morgan cut the funds and the Tower was never finished.
Tesla wanted to bring electricity from the huge resources at Niagara Falls Power Plant and disperse it all around the globe. What a magnificent project it was, however it was never finished. The concept of telephone and telegraph communications, developed by Tesla on Long Island, is still the foundation of today's rapidly growing development of international and intercontinental wireless communications.
The visit to Tesla Tower on June 10, 1990 was so successful that 10 United States Congressmen and one Senator spoke in the American Congress about Nikola Tesla. American Congresswomen Hon. Helen Delich Bentley had a beautiful speech about Nikola Tesla in the US Congress on July 10th 1990, celebrating the 134th birthday of Nikola Tesla.
