Tomorrow I will unveil the plans for my Torus Design — the first home specifically designed for the E-Cat/LENR fusion energy system. E-Cats or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) technology, promises clean, nearly free energy that will likely rank as one of the most important discoveries in history. LENR technology can provide extremely low cost energy that doesn’t pollute or create nuclear wastes. LENR creates distributed/decentralized energy where it’s needed – right in your home, for instance. This eliminates transmission losses and frees us from dependence on big businesses that are prone to manipulating prices. Distributed energy means you’re not reliant on the grid or vulnerable to grid disruptions. A blizzard, for instance, can’t knock out your power.
The reality of LENR is now assured, as you’ll see by the many sources listed below. One can debate the efficacy of LENR products coming to market since the inventors have not yet agreed to public testing, but it’s time to put to rest the tired old arguments about the existence of Cold Fusion that have clouded the issue since the famous Pons and Fleishmann experiment in 1989. The cast of supporters now includes NASA scientists, professors in major universities, military research programs, independent scientists, Nobel laureates and even the Swedish Skeptics Society.
Here’s a recent quote from chief NASA scientist Dr. Dennis Bushnell: “In short, LENR, depending upon the TBD performance, appears to be capable of revolutionizing aerospace across the board. No other single technology even comes close to the potential impacts of LENR upon Agency Missions. The two decades of experiments and the weak interaction theories have removed the existential risk, what is remaining is to engineer for improved performance.” Watch Bushnell’s slideshow.
Dr. Joseph Zawodny of NASA Langley Research Center gave a presentation on LENR in September, 2011 along with Bushnell. Zawodyny’s presentation slides are available here.
His summary of LENR:
• Chemical energy release compared to fission nuclear = 1:1,900,000 ; fusion nuclear = 1:7,300,000 ; LENR = 1:8,000,000
• A cheap, abundant, clean, scalable, portable source of energy will impact EVERYONE
• Singular solution to peak oil, climate change, fresh water, and associated geopolitical instabilities
• Drop-in replacement for traditional utility heat sources. Minimal impact to existing infrastructure
• Enables widely distributed generation. Homes and businesses generate what they need – on site
• Enables whole new approaches to all of NASA’s missions – we can affordably get off this rock!
Michael A. Nelson, 29 years experience with NASA, said “Technology demonstrated by Andrea Rossi or Francesca Piantelli is potentially a “game changer” for space propulsion and vehicle energy needs.”
The US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) lectured on twenty years of verified research involving anomalous heat and mini-explosions on deuterated metals, reported by various governmental and international research laboratories. They conclude that these energetic observations are of nuclear origin and sow the seeds of a true green energy source. Their video presentation titled Twenty-Year History of Lattice-Enabled Nuclear Reactions (LENR) – Hiding in Plain Sight is shown above.
Nobel prizewinner Professor Brian Josephson promotes Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat.
Dr. Brian Ahern, MIT graduate, holds 26 patents and was a senior scientist for 17 years in research and development at USAF Rome Lab at Hanscom Air Force Base. Ahern claims to understand the underlying LENR phenomena and has filed a patent titled Amplification of Energetic Reactions. His theory is available in this PowerPoint presentation.
Lewis Larsen, co-author of Widom-Larsen Theory, explains his ideas in this interview: Lewis Larsen Talks LENR
Professor Sven Kullander is a professor emeritus of high-energy physics at Sweden’s Uppsala University and Chairman of Energy Committee, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Kullander observed some of Rossi’s E-Cat demonstrations in Italy and concluded, “Any chemical process for producing 25 kWh from any fuel in a 50 cm 3 container can be ruled out. The only alternative explanation is that there is some kind of a nuclear process that gives rise to the measured energy production.” Kullander is currently analyzing the spent fuel from Rossi’s E-Cat and his detailed report is expected shortly.
Dr. Michael McKubre is a long-time cold fusion/LENR researcher and advocate at Stanford Research Institute International in Silicon Valley, a major source of cutting edge technology. Dr. McKubre was featured in the 60 Minutes segment about cold fusion (a good introduction to the topic). There are numerous excellent videos by McKubre on YouTube.
Dr. Robert Duncan, vice chancellor of research at the University of Missouri, wants to establish a national research program that would help scientists study LENR. Once a skeptic, Duncan did the research and now endorses the technology.
Be sure to read Ruby Carat’s fine article Reviewing DoD Interest in Cold Fusion, that details verification of cold fusion research by US military labs.
Dr. George Miley with the Fusion Studies Laboratory, Professor Emeritus of nuclear engineering at the University of Illinois, recipient of the Edward Teller medal for innovative research in hot fusion, editor of Fusion Technology magazine for the American Nuclear Society for more than 15 years and author of numerous books and articles says, “There’s very strong evidence that low-energy nuclear reactions do occur. Numerous experiments have shown definitive results – as do my own.” George Miley’s Power Point presentation.
Professor Emeritus Yoshiaki Arata, Japan’s most decorated scientist is expert in LENR. Japan’s Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) formed a research and development consortium with ten major industrial corporations, including Hitachi, Toshiba, Toyota, Tokyo Electric Power, and others. The number of corporate participants has now grown to 20, and last year the four year budget contribution from MITI was increased from $25 million to $100 million. Three hundred patents of this kind have been denied in the US while 100 comparable patents have been approved in Japan.
Luigi Paganetto, president of ENEA (the Italian national energy agency), said in the foreword of COLD FUSION – The history of research in Italy, “… two government programs – carried out in close interaction and with check of results – have proved the existence of this phenomenon in terms that are not ascribable to a chemical process.”
Other highly respected scientists working on LENR include Dr. David Nagel, Dr. Frank Gordon, Professor John Dash, Peter Hagelstein, Dr. Edmund Storms, Professor Sergio Focardi, Francesco Piantelli, Tadahiko Mizuno and many others.
The E-Cat has been covered by EV World, Wired, TEDx, Popular Science, Discovery, CBS, Fox, Washington Times, PhysOrg, Slashdot, Yahoo News, Daily Mail, MSNBC, LiveScience, Forbes, EE Times, Gizmodo, Renewable Energy World, Zerohedge and countless websites.
Despite the overwhelming evidence supplied by the experts listed above (and many others), mainstream media such as Forbes Magazine still claims “no one could duplicate” the work of Pons and Fleishmann. Many sources, including those I’ve just listed, show this is completely wrong. Most reliable sources say several hundred replications have been done. Jed Rothwell, founder of LENR-CANR.org and LENR expert, claims around 17,000 replications. No matter the precise number, review the sources presented here and judge for yourself. I have no doubt a large number of successful LENR replications have been done. And with LENR products beginning to enter the marketplace, time is running out for the die hard skeptics.
