After several decades of mind-numbing, even pathological skepticism about Cold Fusion energy by the mainstream scientific community and most of the news media (with the exception of NBC’s 60 Minutes), everything looks set to change. Yes, MIT, the New York Times, Time magazine, the U.S. Patent Office and Scientific American all appear to have got it wrong! With the apparently successful test of Rossi’s LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) E-Cat device, all of sudden there is lots of renewed interest in the technology. While critics say there’s no theory to explain it, some devices seem to produce a sustained, robust fusion-like energy reaction at a nuclear level. Bill Gates recently traveled to Italy’s ENEA to see it explained to him first-hand by Dr. Vittorio Violante and colleagues. Now, two mainstream academics are calling for a renewed effort to understand how it works, renew funding, and start assessing the global implications of such a low-cost, non-polluting energy source.
