  • Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson Bemoans Cold Fusion Taboo - It's unfortunate that you cannot publish a paper having the words ‘cold fusion’ in it, despite the merits of the research. Address to 500 top grad students.  (U of Chicago Chronicle; Nov. 18, 2004)
  • Science in neglect: Nobel laureate speaks out for cold fusion - Nobel prize winner Brian Josephson tells other Nobel laureates that the rejection of real empirical cold fusion phenomena by the scientific community is like the modern equivalent to continental drift. (New Energy Times; July 8, 2004)
  • Data Versus Dogma:  The Continuing Battle Over Cold Fusion - Establishment science continues to turn cold shoulder despite mounting scientific evidence.
  • 30mw laser-triggered cold fusion cell, Letts LaboratoryCold 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.
  • U.S. Department of Energy Will Review 15 Years of "Cold Fusion" Excess Heat and Nuclear Evidence - A startling reversal of its past refusal to evaluate with a fresh look the large body of experimental evidence that now supports highly anomalous non-chemical magnitude excess heat phenomena in some hydrogen systems, plus associated nuclear anomalies.

  • Whatever Happened to Cold Fusion? - "Between Cold Fusion and respectable science there is virtually no communication at all. Cold fusion papers are almost never published in refereed scientific journals, with the result that those works don't receive the normal critical scrutiny that science requires. On the other hand, because the Cold-Fusioners see themselves as a community under siege, there is little internal criticism." (Dr. David Goldstein; Caltech 2002)

(Patently Obvious; Chicago, IL, USA; Dec. 10, 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)
