In a 40 minute video chat published today by TakePart TV as part of a Google+ Conversation series, Al Gore is interviewed on climate change and is asked about various alternative energy solutions.
Just before the 19 minute mark, he is asked about Nuclear Fusion wherein he states that he’s been told by the experts he trusts that it’s 50 years away at least, referring to Hot Fusion.
He IMMEDIATELY then changes gears, and with a slow dramatic emphasis, he states “there are some very intriguing explorations of what used to be called Cold Fusion…”
Naturally he goes on to say something to the effect of ‘don’t bet all your marbles on it in the near future’, but nevertheless, the emphasis and excitement in his one little line is enough to tell he knows a bit more than he’s willing to let on. Perhaps knew he had to break the ice on the long standing ignoring, denouncing, and “inconvenient truth” of Cold Fusion. Of course he tries to create some distance with the term as well…“they don’t like to call it that anymore…”
Watch the full video, but skip to around the 19 minute mark for the short and sweet Cold Fusion blurb.

At the U.S. Tech portal http://www.science.gov there is a link to “Indication of Anomalous Heat Energy Production in a Reactor Device”
Also at CERN
Every day people like Al Gore are making statements, building an interest in, and demonstrating a willingness to at least consider looking into the facts…
Every day more people are studying this…
I hesitate to say that this is far from mainstream… Current affairs… Not far from mainstream at all.
Every day more people are saying to someone, “Hey, Look at what’s going on here”
“It’s pretty speculative..”
Hee hee hee, yeah, he’s hedging, but what the heck he said it, he said the words, he knows about it.
It’s not speculative at all.
It’s just a matter of time.
Good find Eli. Cross-posted to PeakProsperity site with caption “I was mistaken.” Al Gore.
The Devil made me do it.
(He said that he was mistaken about corn based biofuels.)
