Necessity is truly the mother of invention. Energy drives mankind and fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal, will only provide us with about 100 years of energy. Fusion is the answer, but replicating the energy generation of the sun or a star is never going to be practical. Hot Fusion research is expensive and as seen in the video below, most researchers are tremendously close-minded and arrogant when it comes to other sources of fusion.
Cold Fusion is not nonsense; it is simply misunderstand because it requires an open-mind and a multi-disciplined background. The Fleischmann Pons reaction has been replicated thousands of times and several companies are working towards the manufacturing of commercial models. The goal is the same, harnessing the power of fusion, but until the academic world wakes up and realizes billions have been misspent to fulfill the fantasy of re-creating the sun, LENR and Cold Fusion will live in the shadow of false hope.
The vast majority of the people in the world have never heard of Cold Fusion, or LENR, as it is now popularly called. The study of LENR was nearly buried, but positive experiments have continued twenty years after Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann’s announcement in 1989. As seen below, the late Eugene Mallove, a brilliant scientist and cold fusion expert, tells of how “arrogant physics” and the efforts of negative and close-minded hot fusion advocates led to the public smear campaign against LENR. Thankfully, the honorable efforts of Mallove and others have continued and now we appear to be close to legitimizing their work.
Dr. Mallove prophetically told in a 1994 Good Morning America interview, the very first cold fusion application will be “a home heating unit, and followed very quickly thereafter will be a small electrical generator.” Could this moment be upon us with the commercialization of Rossi’s E-Cat? If so, the world will owe a debt of gratitude to brave individuals like Eugene Mallove who remained steadfast in light of tremendous efforts to destroy an idea.
