Planet Forward needs cold fusion



Cold Fusion Now
posted the What is Cold Fusion? essay and the CBS 60 minutes Part I video link on Planet Forward.

We answered the question on RESEARCH: http://planetforward.org/question/what-theory-behavior-or-norm-are-you-or-your-team-researching-that-will-lead-to-an-improvement-in-how-we-generate-or-use-energy/

From their About page:

How It Works Learn How to Make a Video

Do you have an Idea that should be featured on national television? Show us! If you are new to video production, here are a few tips to help you get started.

Submit an Idea, by answering one of our Questions. As our community comments, shares and rates your Idea, it will rise to the top and Make TV, as the best ideas from each season are featured in our webisodes, TV segments, or even in our PBS special that will air in April 2011, in the run up to Earth Day (link).

You can also just hang out and explore Ideas.

But, it all starts with a good Idea. So, make your case!

You don’t have to register and login to post a comment to Cold Fusion Now’s answer. I need some help answering science questions! I wish I could edit what I wrote: like megajoules instead of megawatts.

To tell you the truth, I was thinking they wouldn’t publish it because the CBS 60 mins video clearly isn’t mine (nor is the idea of cold fusion for that matter!). But heck, they did! So they must find it interesting at the least AND cold fusion now has the opportunity to be profiled on PBS!!

But we need some more original videos, animations, and more talk on cold fusion, LENR, and the urgency to understand this science and develop new clean technologies.

Do you have a cold fusion video? Upload is easy as pasting a link. You do have to Register and Login though.

Let’s get this science profiled on PBS!

Energetics Technologies sets up shop in Missouri. A third political party is steps away from embracing the new energy movement. Cold fusion has more than a few heartbeats in Hollywood and is sneakin’ around the TV landscape.

Is this the feeling of “almost now“?

MALL vs LENR

Excerpt from essay at http://Elienation.com

While everyone else in the country is suffering, losing jobs, companies and businesses folding, Santa Monica is celebrating the grand opening of their 265 million dollar mall. Unreal, but it’s one for the “what were they thinking” history books, when they look back post collapse and try to put some pieces into place.

And that’s the excess that this place (Los Angeles) has. There’s so much wealth floating around, that it does just that, it floats around; the aimless shuffle of dollars back and forth. An area in America where at any given time there’s a handful of 50 million buck movies being pumped out factory style.

And technologies that can save the world, literally, struggle for 20 years to rack up a mere 100 million dollars in research and development funds. But 2 years and 250 million bones for a mall with a Nordstroms in it is cause for celebration.”


Fusion funding in the news

1) From the Tehran Times: Iran begins nuclear fusion studies. They are talking about hot fusion, but cold fusion is mentioned in the last lines of the release…

2)Funding for nuclear fusion: Expensive Iteration looks at the cost overruns and funding difficulties the latest big hot fusion project is facing. Geez, the dollar numbers are humongous.

3) Finally, this article to be published in Canadian Business, Wanted: More cash in nuclear fusion, appears to blur the lines between hot and cold fusion, unaware of the huge scientific and funding differences between them. The article does give some dollar numbers for recent start-up projects.

Shout out to the Private Sector: Could we please get $10 million to the cold fusion scientists? Comparing the funding to the hot fusion folks, there is little to lose, and everything to gain.
