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
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.
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.
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.
