1994 Cold Fusion Sourcebook dedicated to “Children of Chernobyl”

The Salt Lake City, Utah Fusion Information Center founded by Hal Fox was the first research center dedicated to researching and publishing about cold fusion. Newsletters such as Fusion Facts, the New Energy News, and Journal of New Energy all emanated from this organization beginning in mid-1989 and running through 1999.

Hal Fox speaks at Conference on Future Energy
Hal Fox was the director of the first research laboratory at the University of Utah Research Park. Realizing the benefits of this new form of energy, he became a strong advocate, creating several companies and organizing many publication efforts to advance the field. The Cold Fusion Sourcebook edited by Hal Fox coalesced The Proceedings of the International Symposium on Cold Fusion and Advanced Energy Sources held in Belarus, Minsk May 24-26, 1994.

The book is dedicated to three classes of people:

1. To those international scientists, engineers, and inventors that have diligently pursued the truth; who have trusted the integrity of other scientists who reported on their new discoveries; who have replicated, and improved, and, in turn, reported on this new science of cold nuclear fusion and other enhanced energy devices.

2. To the new scientists, engineers, inventors, and scholars who now can follow in the footsteps of those who have led, and become leaders of others. You will be the individuals and the generation who will develop, install, and use the new non-polluting, inexpensive energy systems that will help improve our homes, our countries, and our world.

3. To the Children of Chernobyl.

Fox’s Introduction follows here:

“When I first learned of the devastation to Belarus (and parts of the Ukraine) from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster, I was strongly distressed at the intense penalty that was imposed upon the nation, its people, and especially its children. I determined to do something for the last “Children of Chernobyl”. I desire to express my commendations to those who risked their lives to tell the world about the silent killer in their land and all of us express our thanks to the concerned citizens from many nations that are trying to help. There is no nation on earth that is in a better location for the international conference on new energy than Belarus. There is no nation on earth that deserves and needs a new non-polluting source of energy more than Belarus. That is why I am here with you at this conference.”

“I’m pleased to be the editor of the English version of the proceedings of this important international conference early this year I want to over 50 cold fusion scientists whom I call my friends, and asked them to provide reports on their work. Each one was asked to write an article which would become part of a “Cold Fusion Source book”. In addition, my friend Ben Filimonov of Belarus invited papers from leading scientists from his part of the world who had been successful in the development of this exciting new technology of cold nuclear fusion. With the help of excellent translators, especially Ms. Tamara Grinevich, those papers, mainly from CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), have been included in this publication. In addition, we have also included some invited papers that deal with some other enhanced energy systems (new energy systems that provide more energy out then used as input or driving energy).”

“The first article in the Cold Fusion Sourcebook is mine and is meant to set the stage with the articles that follow by providing a review of the many new methods, in addition to the original Pons-Fleischmann cold fusion cells, by which nuclear reactions and/or excess thermal energy can be produced in relatively simple “table-top” experiments. The second paper is by Dr. Ben Filimonov, who categorizes the many phenomenon of cold nuclear fusion and provides us with a new way of looking at this rich phenomenon.”

“To the attendees of this conference and those who read our work: we challenge you to make use of this knowledge, improve what we have done, and solve the energy problems so that there will never again be anymore “children of Chernobyl”.

Chorus: Will we ever learn?

Courageous new energy scientists continue the effort to develop clean energy technology from cold fusion as our planet is again threatened with the horrific damage of radioactive poisoning that alters the genetic code for generations. Along with pollution from fossil fuels devastating our world wildlife and biodiversity, and war and terror rampant in our streets, there is little more important than working for change in our arrangement for living and peace on planet Earth.

  1. From WIkipedia:

    “There is a consensus that at least 1800 children and adolescents in the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus have contracted cancer of the thyroid because of the reactor disaster. It is feared that the number of thyroid cancer cases among people who were children and adolescents when the accident happened will reach 8000 in the coming decades. This figure is given in the UNDP-Report 2002. The German specialist in radiation medicine and Chernobyl expert, Professor Edmund Lengfelder of the Otto Hug Strahleninstitut in Munich, which has been running a thyroid centre in Belarus since 1991, warns of up to 100 000 additional cases of thyroid cancer in all age groups.

    A recent report by leading scientists and researchers commissioned by European parliamentary groups, Greenpeace International and medical foundations in Britain, Germany, Ukraine, Scandinavia and other countries suggests that the number of casualties may have been far higher: “At least 500,000 people – perhaps more – have already died out of the 2 million people who were officially classed as victims of Chernobyl in Ukraine””

    If we don’t adopt LENR over nuclear fission because of the gigantic cost savings, it’s tremendous abundance, or it’s lack of dual-use potential, then perhaps we will make it a priority because of the tragic effects of radiation. Like GI Joe says: “Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.”

    1. wikipedi is taken under control by some groups on sensible subjects…

      I have access to more serious data and clearly the claim of greenpeace are totally out of reality.

      since decades it is clear that low dose irradiation have much lower effect than estimated by no treshold linear law.
      it is even clear that at intermediate dose (above 100mSv) that Ormesis is observed… on humans, on animals, on tissue.
      note that wikipedia deny it…
      like cold fusion…

      if the count of thyroid cancer seems right, the fatalities was not so high, and could have been even lower if the health system of USSR did not collapse, helped by Chicago Boys theories.

      serious studies are clear that impact on the population, out of chlid thyroid cancer, is null.
      the only real and huge impact, like expected in fukushima, is the psycho-sociologic impact of evacuation, causing heavy stess, thus depression, alcoolism, family violence, murders and suicide.
      that was clearly visible in the epidemiology study, while cancer (except thyroid for kids living nearby) were invisible, especially if you compare them to the background of air pollution linked to industry and coal.

      wiki is just relaying the consensus of the real power that count… (not the one that you think, but the on that put those scape goat in your mind).

      look for dat from Tubiana, teh UNO scientific team (who was menaced by ukrainian lobbies, and by extremist from NGO, because they were interested to dramatize the situation and hide the reality of the casualties cause : unjustified wide evacuation zone)…

      people are today living happily in zone where irradiation is everyday worse than fukushima and Chernobyl (at few kilometer after few month)…

      this seems strange given the brainwashing we support, but it is coherent with biological knowledge of how hot shock protein work, and genotoxic attack are treated by the body.
      We support already heavy genotoxic attack, from sun, food, sky, rock, by UV, chemicals, radiations…
      a simple computation show that billion of people would be dead because of plane travel if greenpiss theory was right.

      the recent study that show that mouse support much more average irradiation dose that expected (because formerly applied too quickly, unlike reality)… it is no surprise because the Hiroshima and Nagasaki epidemiology study already show that huge dose have a noticeable but moderate effect.
      but in my opinion it is the desperate try of some scientist the help people at Fukushima from the consequence of stupid protection measutes that kill more than they protect.
      Desperate, like trying to talk of LENR in public… impossible to fight the consensus of stupidity .

      read the article by george monbiot, the environmentalist columnist of The Guardian
      and his private blog

      1. There is nothing but trlols on youtube. You abuse words and the lose their meaning. For example everything is so damn epic now. Most people have the same ignorant misconception as you. An Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apoke1lypsis; lifting of the veil or revelation ) is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception. This is not what you said or meant. people and you are not abbrevations.

    2. and that is a run on sentence. If I ever go to Chernobyl which i want to go to. I would by no means , disrcage or write any graffiti on YOUR land. I clearly just want see what a disastrous , soviet , ghost town atmosphere it is. It is very INTERESTING and sad at the same time Went is past tense. Stop using ellipses to make run on sentences. Your NOT ur, wanna is not a word.

  2. Alain, you are sailing a sinking ship. Regardless of climate kook Monbiot’s hopes, nuclear fission is now cancelled in most of western Europe, Japan and other nations. Why?? Because in Japan we see a “possible” 5% energy loss in Tokyo and a possible 10% loss in western Japan – with all nukes shut down. i.e. nukes off – lights still on.

    It is not just radiation damage which we will not accurately assess for another 50 years – it is forced relocation – cost of containment – cost of massive business losses, continued cleanup issues and the never-ending issue of disposing nuclear waste.

    Nuclear fission and fusion have both had their day. Fusion is being massively de-funded as it has proven to be a hoax and fraud perpetrated by government and academia. Fission has been eliminated in Japan, Germany, Italy much of western Europe because the people (aka taxpayers) are sick of the dangers and costs.

    Try to get over the loss Alain and start to accept the fact that the only nuclear solution going forward is cold fusion aka LANR/LENR. It is clean/green and abundant.

    Ruby – correction – Salt Lake in in UTAH not Nevada.

    1. I agree with you, but I just want to say that it is because of irrational fears and manipulation of masses and media.

      you say that the real worst cos is linked to evacuation. I add that most of that cost is of irrational evacuation.
      The cost is caused by manipulation and stupidity, not by real facts.

      of course LENR is a much better solution, no screening, no safety problem, except about hydrogen containment.

      But the irrational religious fear against radiation that is killing the fission, the GMO, the shale gas, promoting inefficient photo-voltaic and wind generators, can also :

      -> kill LENR!

      this is my big fear, that the big religious stupidity that is infecting or mediasphere, thus our politic system, and thus brainwashing our kids, friends … will succeed in killing our only chance to escape from that self caused disaster.

      when making the diagnostic of fukushima and chernobyl, the mediasphere forget to find the real cause of the problems.

      the tsunami killed all the people, not the nuke: does this mean that we should evacuate the seashore ? we should because it is much more probable to die of that than of radiation. except that there are thousand other risk and that safe life is impossible… should first stop tobacco, alcohol, laziness, and junk food… should care of traffic light, speed limits…

      the few kids who died of thyroid cancer, died, because the health system was not working well, and worst of all because the government was unable to forbid milk consumption from the zone…

      people could have reoccupied the intermediate zone quite quickly , provided they eat food and water from outside the zone… this would have avoided many sucide, alcoholism death, and crimes

      and in fact those avoidable deaths were ridiculous compared to the consequence of that USSR social system failure, the mafia takeover on the economy… all killing few million of people…

      and the only study that accuse Chernobyl of a noticeable effect on the population use a manipulative method that put the responsibility of all increased death to radioactivity, and not to USSR fall and crony-capitalism installation.

      anyway as you say, my battle for rationality is hopeless…
      and there is even studies that show that battling false rumors is hopeless.
