Barnabus Energy Appoints Noted Physicist and Inventor as Senior Scientific Advisor

CARLSBAD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 25, 2005 -- Barnabus Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: BBSE) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Melvin L. Prueitt to the advisory committee. For over 30 years Dr. Prueitt's career as a theoretical physicist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory has included notable efforts encompassing various aspects of the nuclear defense program. While his work involved the development of strategic national defense initiatives, Dr. Prueitt never lost sight of his dedication towards improving people's lives through science and technology.

Currently, he holds eighteen patents in the fields of renewable energy, desalination, magnetic energy storage and consumer products. In recent years, Dr. Prueitt's proposal to build air cleansing convection towers in urban environments capable of generating electrical power received worldwide attention. He is also a recognized pioneer in the field of computer graphics. His 3-d graphic images are published on the covers of hundreds of books and magazines, including National Geographic, Popular Science, Nature, The New York Times, Encyclopedia Britannica, as well as featured in three Star Trek movies.

Barnabus Energy is fortunate to have secured exclusive, worldwide rights to Dr. Prueitt's latest invention, Suncone. Successful commercialization of this technology shows promise of cost-effectively producing low-cost electricity, or purifying brackish water, using only the concentrated energy of the sun. Dr. Prueitt's background provides for a unique viewpoint on the potential benefits of his new patent-pending discovery. He states; "Energy security is a major international issue. Future potential conflicts may be fought over access to clean water. If I can help bring water and power to underserved areas of the world, I will have made a contribution to solving two of the world's most pressing problems."

Regarding today's announcement, Company President Kerry Nagy stated; "The inclusion of Dr. Prueitt on our advisory committee is a significant step in the development of our strategic planning. We look forward to working closely with him on the Suncone project as well as on other renewable initiatives that Management plans to advance." The appointment as Senior Scientific Advisor, effective immediately, both advises Management and reports directly to the Board of Directors.
