Weeks ago, the Washington Post asked readers What energy sources offer the most promise for the U.S.?

LENR won.

Today the journal noted that win, with author Neil Irwin citing the strong community support:

After four weeks of the first Wonkblog CrowdSourced, there is a consensus! Asked to explain what you view as the most promising energy source for America’s economic and environmental future, you favored one answer, heavily, above the others: Low energy nuclear reactions, or cold fusion. Nine of the top ten vote-getters favored this answer. (Perhaps with an assist from the website ColdFusionNow.org, which urged readers to participate).

Well, I must add Harry Veeder posted a call on Vortex-l first, and that’s what got us all started, and thanks go to Lenr-forum.com for spreading the word far and wide. (If I ever get my Subscription button working, I may be able to help even more. It might be working now, so subscribe again please and let me know!) And no doubt more than a few E-Cat World readers contributed to this win.

Featured are two top comments, the first from Tom888 who wrote:

There is little doubt that the future energy will be LENR, aka cold fusion. The field developed off the mainstream over the past years and we are at a point where commercial applications are being prepared for roll out now by several companies. This is mainly engineering and inventor driven, whereas basic science is lagging behind understanding the phenomenon. Nevertheless, the effect is indisputable now and the prospect is clean, unlimited source of thermal energy at very low cost. Today, June 03, this subject is being discussed at the EU in Brussels – questions are funding and how to move forward. In US, the company National Instruments is involves in supplying control software for LENR reactors, Siemens is looking at it, research is being done at many places (U of Missouri, NAS, SRI…). Several companies in US announced commercial LENR heaters within the coming months.
Those reactors are typically small, table top devices, overall low-tech, which can be bundled to larger units for heating, steam and electricity generation. This puts an end to CO2 problems and oil wars.

While it makes sense to continue to use existing ‘renewable’ energy sources such as solar, hydro and tidal power where available, all these, together with fossil fuels and nuclear will soon be obsolete. The energy source of the future is the phenomenon of cold fusion, also known as LENR etc.

Before skeptics dismiss this as fantasy, they need to do a bit of research. Several parties have recently claimed breakthroughs at kilowatt levels from cold fusion reactors including Brillouin, Defkalion Green Technologies and Leonardo Corporation (Andrea Rossi), and a number of very serious researchers are reporting positive results.

The current leader of the field seems to be Rossi, who recently had one of his devices tested by a group of independent scientists, under the auspices of a major Swedish power consortium. The test results clearly confirmed his claim that he has invented a practical cold fusion reactor. Through his agent ecat.com, he is also offering to install a 1MW thermal plant free of charge to a suitable host organisation, in order to publicly demonstrate the technology in action.

And that’s how it will roll. There’s no stopping it. We will have a clean energy future, with a green technology to power this planet, and beyond.

Trolls continue typing, but no matter. The efforts are nothing but the itch on a phantom limb, soon to fade away as a new vision takes hold.

Cold Fusion Now!
