As 2011 comes to a close, the debate continues over the feasibility of cold fusion, or as it is now commonly being referred, a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction.

Will the current LENR buzz lead to more research and credible support from the scientific community? Will fossil fuels be relegated to fossil (irrelevant) fuels?
Time will tell, but the following articles are all betting 2012 may be the beginning of an energy revolution.
