Did Tesla Discover Cold Fusion and LENR?

Here’s a fascinating piece from a commentator at E-Cat World arguing that Nicola Tesla, based on a lecture he gave at Columbia University in 1891, may have been one of the founders of Cold Fusion. Moreover, it may be operating in your body right now!

E-Cat Inventor Says Resonance Guides Self-Sustained Power Generation

Rossi's E-Cat

Rossi’s E-Cat

In a recent response to questions about how the E-Cat “Energy Catalyzer” Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) works when several are hooked together, inventor Andreas Rossi says: “The concert model is proper: wherein many instruments can make a harmony that is not just the sum of single sounds: resonances can generate virtual entities whose energy is higher than the sum of the energy of the singles.” Read his whole response here.

The E-Cat, which is owned by Industrial Heat LLC of Raleigh, N.C., is a highly controversial relative of Cold Fusion. However, it’s solid state device consisting of “tubercularized” nickel powder suspended in a hydrogen matrix. Critics say there is no accepted theory to support its operation and production of isotopic by-products. Some recent experiments, like that of Russian physicist Parkhomov to duplicate it in an open source environment with readily available materials, have been successful leading to speculation that it could soon be viable, non-polluting, low-cost source of heat and even electricity. Stay tuned.

Cold Fusion and LENR Update

New support for Cold Fusion research

In an amazing turn of events, recent positive tests of Rossi’s E-Cat or Energy Catalyzer cold fusion-type device, (LENR–Low Energy Nuclear Reaction to be more precise), has fueled new, serious, and growing interest in the this potential energy source.  Bill Gates recently visited a well-known Cold Fusion lab in Italy. Is this a vindication of Fleischmann and Pons’ heavily vilified research from the 1980’s? If so, this is a huge story that cannot be overestimated. It implies that mainstream scientific and academic research got it wrong about Cold Fusion. Here are some new articles from the past few days.

Detailed Critique of the E-Cat Test: Is It All Just a Hoax?

E-Cat in operation

Here’s a worthy critique of the recent third-party E-Cat test in Lugano, Switzerland, by Ethan Siegel. He basically says the whole thing was a hoax. I don’t agree with the author for a variety of reasons, but mostly because almost all new scientific inventions had similar  accusations thrown at them. The Wright Brothers, Edison’s phonograph, or Leeuwenhoek’s microscope? Take your pick. They were all considered hoaxes too in their time. Here’s Siegel’s article. And then, if you will, read this thorough, sound response from Michael Lammert.

By the way, if you want to read about how often this accusation has been made against other successful technologies and inventions, I recommend Stanton Friedman’s wonderful book Science Was Wrong: Startling Truths About Cures, Theories, and Inventions ” They” Declared Impossible.

Long-term implications of the new E-Cat technology

E-Cat in operation

E-Cat undergoing testing operations which were successful.

There has been a lot of excitement since the positive 3rd-party E-Cat report last week about what the new technology means for our lives and the world.  What does cheaper, decentralized energy mean for us in the long-term? For one thing, these test results seem like a total vindication of the highly controversial work of Cold Fusion researchers Fleischmann and Pons, as I reported in a previous video. Here are some comments on the e-catworld.com site, by a purported engineer, about the implications of the new technology on how we live. He argues that electricity costs will be cut in half, energy independence of many countries, a gradual reduction in demand for hydrocarbon fuels like natural gas and oil (though he doesn’t mention it, this includes solar, wind, biofuels, and hydro too)  and a general decentralization of the energy grid, among other things. There are also plenty of geopolitical implications as the energy playing field is leveled across the globe.

Head of Swedish R&D Institute Elforsk Issues Strong Statement on “Astounding” E-Cat Test Results

The E-Cat undergoing testing for the final 3rd party report: results were positive

The E-Cat undergoing testing for the final 3rd party report: results were positive

The CEO of the Swedish energy R&D institute Elforsk issued a statement yesterday on the implications of the successful long-term E-Cat test.  He says  “we may see the fundamental transformation of our energy system” due to the simplification and decentralization of energy production with the new E-Cat technology. Read the 3rd-party report for yourself.

Here is the English translation of his full statement (thanks to Mats Hilmersson):

Measurements on LENR reactor reported – energy release and isotopes

Yesterday, astounding results from month-long measurements on a so-called “energy catalyser” were reported. The report, written by researchers from Uppsala University, KTH and the University of Bologna, describes a release of heat that cannot be explained by chemical reactions alone. Isotope changes in the analysed fuel instead indicate that nuclear reactions might have occurred at low temperatures. It implies that we may be facing a new way to extract nuclear energy possibly without ionizing radiation and radioactive waste. The discovery could potentially become very important for the world’s energy supply.

Third Party E-Cat Report: It’s Positive

The E-Cat energy catalyzer: Abundant heat with no explanation within current physics why it works

[Update: this is not a “leaked” report as stated here yesterday but the FINAL version posted online before it’s publication in the Journal of Nuclear Physics.]

A year-long 3rd party report on the “E-Cat” energy catalyzer technology has been posted on a Swedish website. The authors note “abundant energy production” and an unexplained nuclear reaction with no waste or by-products. The device was tested continuously for 32 days. See E-catworld.com for details.

The authors of the report conclude:

“In summary, the performance of the E-Cat reactor is remarkable. We have a device giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations, but it operates at low energy and gives neither nuclear radioactive waste nor emits radiation. From basic general knowledge in nuclear physics this should not be possible.”
