U.S. Department of Energy Report on Cold Fusion

Released Dec. 1, 2004

"While significant progress has been made in the sophistication of calorimeters since the review of this subject in 1989, the conclusions reached by the reviewers today are similar to those found in the 1989 review."
"Most scientists think that cold fusion is laughable, but when the dust settled, the researchers reviewing our work were evenly split."
David Nagel
cold fusion researcher at George Washington University in Washington DC
"It is astonishing that the panel didn't find cold fusion convincing after almost fifteen years of additional research."
Bob Park
Professor of physics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore

News Reports on DOE Report

  • Review says many scientists still cool on cold fusion - Salt Lake Tribune coverage of DOE report.  "Many of the reviewers in the DOE study found compelling signs that cold fusion experiments produced heat and nuclear products and said further experiments are warranted." (Dec. 3, 2004)
  • Opinion > Rethinking Cold Fusion Zeal - The fact that various cold fusion phenomenon are scientifically reproducible has been well established. But does cold fusion have the potential of delivering significant usable energy in a cost-effective manner? (PESN; Dec. 3, 2004)
  • US review rekindles cold fusion debate - Claims of cold fusion are intriguing, but not convincing. That is the conclusion of an 18-member scientific panel tasked with reviewing research in the area. (Nature; Dec. 2, 2004)
    "This is a significant departure from Nature's 14 year boycott of cold fusion reporting, due to the controversy surrounding the subject." -- John Coviello
  • Outlook for Cold Fusion Is Still Chilly - "A Department of Energy review of cold fusion has generated some heat but very little light on the controversial subject." (Science 2004 306: 1873)
  • Evidence on Cold Fusion Remains Inconclusive, New Review Finds - Two-thirds of the reviewers did not find the evidence for nuclear reactions in the experiments convincing. Almost all of them, however, said that aspects of cold fusion merited consideration for further research. (NY Times; Dec. 2, 2003)
  • DOE Report on Cold Fusion - "Looks like there is nothing really new since Pons & Fleischmann in 1989" (Slashdot; Dec. 1, 2004). First to break the story.
  • Cold Fusion Back From the Dead - IEEE Spectrum article on pending DOE review. (published prior to report release) (Dec. 4)

Comments

Important Door Opened

Comment on 2004 DOE Review: One important departure from past U.S. DOE policy in regards to cold fusion is that the DOE stated in the 12/1/04 report that they are now open to funding specific experiments proposed to research the cold fusion phenomenon. This is an important door that has been opened to cold fusion researchers.

Positive Things Said

"Without a doubt, the DOE conclusion is inconclusive.

"The reviewers' comments are excellent - even the one's I don't agree with. They are all very illuminating as to the thought process behind each individuals' perspective."

-- Steven Krivit

Riv van Winkle

"It's what I call the Rip van Winkle problem, most of the people that reviewed this had been asleep with respect to the field since 1989." -- Dr. Michael McKubre, Nov. 1, 2004

    - Establishment science continues to turn cold shoulder despite mounting scientific evidence. (PESN; April 26, 2004)
  • Pure Energy Systems News Service Exclusive:
    Cold Fusion Heating Up -- Pending Review by U.S. Department of Energy - Phenomenon discovered by Fleischmann and Pons in1989, then disavowed by the scientific establishment, but subsequently confirmed worldwide in thousands of experiments, may finally be recognized as a revolutionary discovery of science. (PESN; March 27, 2004)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
