The Rebirth of Cold Fusion, Book Description

Written for the general public, The Rebirth of Cold Fusion takes a current look at the scientific discovery that stunned the world 15 years ago and that is making a remarkable comeback today.

Scientists say that, if fusion power becomes commercially viable, it has the potential to fulfill the world's energy needs, using ocean water as fuel, safely, without pollution or harmful nuclear waste. Credible researchers working for respectable laboratories around the world now say that cold fusion shows such potential.

Cold fusion beckons a new dawn in the age of scientific energy research. Neglected but not abandoned, cold fusion has made startling progress as a new field of nuclear science. All of the early objections have been explained, and many new insights have come to light. 

The historical information contained in this book challenges the premise that science is always objective. It portrays the professional struggles that those who have explored this controversial subject have endured. It illuminates the blocks to innovation that academic institutions and publishers have posed.

This book displays a cover-up by prominent scientists in the nuclear physics community who have obfuscated the truth and protected their own interests. It discloses little-known historical facts, and it exposes positive reports of cold fusion research written by some of the world's leading critics. It shows that the prominent laboratories alleged to have debunked the discovery mishandled their experiments and gave biased interpretations of findings that may have replicated rather than disproved cold fusion.

While a number of years may pass before we can know whether cold fusion will provide an answer to spiraling oil prices, pollution and global warming, The Rebirth of Cold Fusion makes a convincing case for a large-scale research effort, not unlike the Manhattan Project or the Apollo Program. Policy-makers and the public will need to be informed about the potentially immense political, economic and national security implications of this revolutionary phenomenon.
