Cold Fusion Is Hot Again - Tuesday, July 17th 9p | 12a ET "A report on cold fusion - nuclear energy like that which powers the sun, but made at room temperatures on a tabletop, which in 1989, was presented as a revolutionary new source of energy that promised to be cheap, limitless and clean but was quickly dismissed as junk science. Today, scientists believe that cold fusion, now most often called low temperature fusion or a nuclear effect, could lead to monumental breakthroughs in energy production."

Unfortunately, the CNBC website is unresponsive.

“60 Minutes on CNBC” to Feature Cold Fusion

July 11, 2012

There’s an announcement on the CNBC web site of an upcoming program that will feature cold fusion. There will be a program on Scientific Breakthroughs on Tuesday, July 17th at 9:00 p.m. ET. Here is the description:

Cold Fusion Is Hot Again A report on cold fusion – nuclear energy like that which powers the sun, but made at room temperatures on a tabletop, which in 1989, was presented as a revolutionary new source of energy that promised to be cheap, limitless and clean but was quickly dismissed as junk science. Today, scientists believe that cold fusion, now most often called low temperature fusion or a nuclear effect, could lead to monumental breakthroughs in energy production.

Now CNBC is a cable financial network, and 60 Minutes is a CBS show, so there must be some kind of partnership between the two companies. The explanation of ’60 Minutes on CNBC’ is, “CNBC brings you the latest on these classic stories with updates and never before seen footage of these award winning business news stories”

It appears from this billing that there will be an update to the 2009 ’60 Minutes’ segment, but probably not a completely new piece. Perhaps some report on progress and developments made in the field in recent years. It’s interesting that this is being featured on a financial network — an indication that someone sees there is the possibility that cold fusion could have an impact on business and the economy.

If you haven’t seen the 2009 CBS piece, it is here.

If you don't mind, I'll just wait for Dumbledore to figure out some create energy spells.

Likely as not, that'll happen as soon as cold fusion anyway.

Perhaps the Popular Science writer seen at the ILENRS-12 conference was contributing to the 60 Minutes episode...

Jim Dunn’s Report on LENR conference in Williamsburg

http://pesn.com/2012/07/07/9602127_Jim_Dunns_Report_on_LENR_conference_in_Williamsburg/

Jim provides an excellent overview, not just of the cold fusion players approaching market, but of the process involved in taking an energy technology to market and where the various players fare in that process.

Slide 31 from Jim’s PPT
(Note, this is not intended to be a photo of an actual Boiler, but to demonstrate the potential size difference. This image on the right is a Dragon electric steam boiler by Fulton.)

By Jim Dunn
for Pure Energy Systems News

Gents - I just returned from the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction, LENR, conf. in Williamsburg, VA.

The event and meetings went very well. Lots of excitement and anticipation. Total of 48 attendees, mostly scientists.

Nothing really new or earth-shattering, but Hagelstein, McKubre, Nagel, Bushnell, and many other scientists did a great job.

There were a number of new faces and very good discussions during breaks and social part of conference.

(See my PPT, attached)

Jed Rothwell did a good summary @ http://www.mail-archive.com/vortex- href=”mailto:l@eskimo.com”>l@eskimo.com/msg67105.html

A Popular Science writer was also there, along with Marianne Macy, doing her usual fine reporting and recording of the talks.

The Pop. Sci. reporter is doing a 4000 word feature story, (about 8 pages). He is planning on visiting Rossi, Pianrelli, DGT, and others in Europe, over the next few weeks.

How are you folks doing with tracking all the upcoming events?

Let’s hope Hank gets to actually see a working reactor at Rossi’s and some solid test data. He should ask Rossi to verify that he can produce all the recent claimed results simultaneously, with the same 600C E-Cat system:

This should show 600C delivered thermal output to a load, (not just reactor wall temp measurement) with 10KW of heat being continuously transferred to some active 10KW load (not wall temp), with Input electrical power of less than 1700W, (for COP = 6), with suitable data showing 45 days of continuous 600C output, at 10KW level of excess thermal power, (COP = 6).

Best,

Are you aware that the Pons-Fleishmann effect has been replicated more than 14,700 times?

E-cat went scat?

Here we go again. I think I’ve seen this movie before.

I don’t think the original 60 Minutes report mentioned Rossi. It was focused on Dr. Duncan, UMissouri, the guys in Israel. Maybe we’re back to the original crew.

What? Cold fusion researchers need more grant money? Oh yeah, cancer will soon be cured also...just keep the research money flowing.

Is there something that gives you the idea that there is any significant amount of grant money going to cold fusion?

Take a guess: The amount of public money going to Hot Fusion vs cold fusion is...

20% cold fusion/80% hot fusion
10% cold fusion/90% hot fusion
5% cold/ 95% hot
2% cold/ 98% hot
1% cold/ 99% hot
.05% cold/ 99.5% hot
.01% cold/ 99.9% hot
even less than that...

Go ahead, take a guess. How much research money is “flowing”, as you have complained?

What’s so bad about fission? With it you get electricity too cheap to meter......

But at least Hot Fusion research has delivered impressive results.

Oh right.

Disposing of the spent fuel.

Energy gives off heat.

Thanks Kevmo. This information is not known to me. Am not a scientist. I believe Fusion is possible though have trouble when Fusion is called Cold.

Fission leaves waste that does not decompose for ten thousand years plus. Fission waste containment and storage is a tremendous problem. Fusion would be great if fusion could be contained. Fusion (once attained) does not leave the waste. One thing has always bothered me. The sun has eruptions. These eruptions break out across space at the speed of light (I think). The eruptions and accompanying ejections involve massive amounts of mass and energy. Is safe containment of fusion possible, if fusion is attainable, or once fusion is attained one has a virtual Sun with internal combustion plus all the mass ejections thereof associated with fusion like our Sun?
