President Obama Cold Fusion/LENR: Is an October Surprise Immanent, Eminent, and Imminent? Part 3 Politics

An October Surprise (outline)

Definition of Immanent

1: Indwelling, inherent. <beauty is not something imposed but something immanent — Anthony Burgess>

2: Being within the limits of possible experience or knowledge — compare transcendent.

Definition of Eminent

1: Standing out so as to be readily perceived or noted.
2: Jutting out, projecting.
3: Exhibiting eminence especially in standing above others in some quality or position – prominent.

Definition of Imminent

1: Ready to take place; especially as in hanging threateningly over one’s head.

“The immanent beauty of LENR (low energy nuclear reaction) is that it delivers inexpensive clean energy freely and controllably within the limits of our knowledge and experience. Cold fusion/LENR power imminently promises to hold the eminent position in world energy markets overthrowing all others.”

The unveiling of cold fusion LENR engineering may take place on the world stage by the end of October.

Some might argue that it has already taken place.

The race to cold fusion/LENR power is on.

Who will be the first to capitalize on the popularity of this new, nearly free and unlimited, clean energy?

  • “In American political jargon, an October surprise is a news event with the potential to influence the outcome of an election, particularly one for the U.S. presidency. The reference to the month of October is because the Tuesday after the first Monday in November is the date for national elections (as well as many state and local elections), and therefore events that take place in late October have greater potential to influence the decisions of prospective voters.”


The development of Cold Fusion LENR engineering is just in time for an October Surprise.

An October Surprise could come from either party or from another source.

  • Republicans are aware of LENR power.
  • Obama is aware of LENR power.
  • Congress is aware.
  • Anti-fracking, anti-nuclear U238 groups, and environmental groups are aware of LENR power.


The U.S. Governments’ access to the E-cat for testing has been established.

Other cold fusion LENR companies have developed independent testing.

A mainstream oil industry magazine has warned the oil industry of LENR engineering.

Cold Fusion/LENR is close to being breaking news.

The stage is set for Obama to announce cold fusion now.

LENR power is an important technological development for the United States.

Cold fusion/LENR engineering is a matter of national security.

It is essential for our armed forces pre-eminence and our pre-eminence in space. (Administration)

The U.S Government is leading the way with licensing for use of LENR power technology engineered by NASA. This opens the door to U.S. contracts for next generation military vehicles and NASA spacecraft powered by LENR.

What are the risks and benefits of making or not making an announcement?


If President Obama does announce cold fusion/LENR

  • Will he be accused of being delusional for believing in cold fusion? – He has plenty to back him up as far as the realism and outlook of LENR thru NASA. The Administration of the Office of the President is presently observing an E-Cat device.
  • The world economy will go through a troublesome adjustment. – The President can hardly be blamed for loss of value of energy sector investment or present day energy sector jobs lost to cold fusion. Simply put, energy will decrease in value.
  • He may lose the support given his administration by the oil, coal, and nuclear U238 cartels. – The money behind these industries will quickly follow new opportunities. Oil and coal will become less influential. The people of wealth behind the money will continue to have influence through investment in the opportunities that cold fusion LENR power will create.


If President Obama does not announce cold fusion/LENR before it hits the market

  • He may be accused of incompetence and blind ignorance. – He could say the announcement had to wait as a matter of national security. The race to cold fusion was real and barely won by the U.S. through the administrations’ successful efforts to bring Andre Rossi and the E-Cat to the U.S. and from research work done by NASA and the Navy.
  • If it is suspected that he had ample knowledge of cold fusion LENR engineering he may be accused of purposely keeping it under wraps to protect oil and coal interests. – He could say this helped buffer losses to U.S. holdings in the energy sector.
  • If foreknowledge of LENR is proven, continued subsidies for oil and coal, granting new permits for pipelines and ecologically dangerous artic and deep well drilling, and continued fracking may be judged as gross negligence. – He could say we still need these energy resources till complete conversion to LENR power is completed through a natural market process.


Future generations are watching us. That’s the meaning of having a sense of ones’ place in history. Does President Obama have a sense that his administration is history in the making, engaged in the most important technological innovation of our time, the nearly free and unlimited energy age?


If Obama announces Cold fusion/LENR power as an October Surprise

  • Announcing that his administration is behind cold fusion energy, and setting a national goal for a speedy conversion to LENR power would mark President Obama as a true leader, one with insight and courage.
  • The popularity of subsidized oil, coal, fracking, tar sands, pipelines, oil wars, and environmental strife caused by our energy demand being met by fossil fuels or U238 is at an all time low.
  • The popularity of “stop pollution and global warming” is at an all time high, especially if the plan to do so spurs economic opportunity and growth. A plan for rapid conversion to LENR power would do just that.
  • The high and rising cost of energy is a problem for all. Nearly free energy will be an economic relief for government, institutions, industry, businesses, and citizens alike. Conversion to LENR power will prove to be a popular political platform.
  • Cold fusion/LENR power will be the defining framework for action. Create economic opportunities… how? Cold fusion. Block the Keystone pipeline… why? Cold fusion. Reduce all transportation costs… how? Cold fusion. No funding for the MIT Takamak hot fusion reactor… why? Cold fusion. Stop burning coal in high polluting power plants… how? Cold fusion. Shut down dangerous nuclear power… why? Cold Fusion. Stop global warming… how? Cold fusion. No more carbon trading… why? Cold fusion. Restore ecological damage… how? Cold fusion. Stop deep well drilling… why? Cold fusion. Expand into space… how? Cold fusion.


Will Obama be the first politician to capitalize on the benefits of cold fusion/LENR power? Or will a political opponent announce it first? The first announcement may come from a news agency, an LENR company, a consortium of cold fusion activists, or from a cold fusion/LENR power manufacturers association such as QUEMA.

At the end of this article there is a list of “Politics of Cold Fusion Now”. (page)

The list is impressive yet incomplete, many readers have taken actions that we haven’t documented. A few examples are Paul Maher contacted every oil industry expert he could find and Greg Goble contacted every anti fracking group. Now we have an oil industry magazine article warning about cold fusion and anti-fracking demonstrators demanding cold fusion in Washington. Over a thousand people read Cold Fusion Now magazine every couple of days. Cold Fusion Now is only one of many organizations carrying the message of cold fusion. Knowledge and awareness is growing exponentially. Keep spreading the word.

Cold Fusion/LENR power should be part of every political debate. Do everything you can to bring it into the political discourse on energy, economy, or environment.


Cold Fusion Now

Politics of Cold Fusion Now

There is this political Cold Fusion quanundrum that Ruby clearly took on the “chin”…

Title “One Response”

The article in whole is… (Worth noting. Thanks).

“Sadly, since school started I’ve been grading papers instead of writing letters in support of cold fusion. But over the summer, our Cold Fusion Now team did several large mailings of letters to legislators and agencies, accompanied by a Cold Fusion Now sticker, asking for attention and funding for LENR research. The letters varied, each one unique to that senator’s accomplishments, but all of them discussed funding for low-energy nuclear reactions research using the vocabulary of “clean energy”.

This is the first response from any senator regarding those letters, and it comes from my home-state Senator Feinstein. Interestingly, I have telephoned, sent an email, and written a letter to Ms. Feinstein. This response below came through the email and is regarding my “letter” which did not contain an email address. So I guess they’ve got me sewed up all which ways!

Though the response is stock (it does not mention LENR, LANR, or cold fusion), I have to wonder, where did she put her Cold Fusion Now sticker???

Dear Ms. Carter:

Thank you for writing to express your support for passage of a clean energy and climate bill through the United States Senate in the 111th Congress. I appreciate hearing from you, and I welcome the opportunity to respond.

The “Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act” (S. 3663) was introduced by Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) on July 28, 2010. This legislation combines a number of proposals that I support to address energy efficiency, climate change, oil spill response and accountability, and funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Although Senator Reid did not bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote in July, please be assured that I support debating the bill on the Senate floor.

The “Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act” includes five billion dollars for the HOMESTAR program, which provides incentives to promote greater residential energy efficiency. You may be interested to know that I have cosponsored the “Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010″ (S. 3434), which provided the basis for the HOMESTAR provisions in S. 3663.

The “Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act” also addresses oil spill response and accountability issues observed during the recent Gulf Coast oil spill. It would increase the liability caps on those who cause oil spills, require oil spill response plans to be far more specific, mandate that oil companies invest in technologies that help to prevent and respond to oil spills, improve the Federal government’s ability to respond to catastrophic oil spills in deepwater, and reform the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement (known previously as the Minerals Management Service) to prevent mismanagement and corruption.

Lastly, the “Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act” would fund the LWCF at $900 million each year for the next five fiscal years. I am committed to preserving our nation’s natural resources. As Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies, I have worked with my colleagues to secure funding for the LWCF each fiscal year.

I remain committed to working with my Senate colleagues to advance legislation that will address oil spill response and accountability, climate change, job creation, and increasing our energy security. During this Congress, we have not yet been able to put together a comprehensive climate and energy bill capable of gaining the 60 votes necessary to pass the Senate, but I will continue to work with my colleagues to enact meaningful legislation in this area.

Again, thank you for your letter. If you have any other questions or comments, please contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.
Best regards.

Sincerely yours,
Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator

PS. I have telephoned my senators, as well as others on key committees, and that’s the easiest way to get the “clean energy” meme in their heads. Go ahead and make your call!

Thanks Ruby.. tsn’t a knockout punch anyways.. hey!!

Dear Dr. Majumdar,

In researching energy issues and ways to reduce fossil fuel consumption, I was surprised to learn that there exists an extremely promising field of inquiry that gets absolutely no funding from the Department of Energy. I am talking about LANR, lattice-assisted nuclear reactions.

Have you looked at the results coming out of labs worldwide lately?
Present success is generating megawatts from 0.3 grams of palladium. Energetics Technologies, based in New Jersey, has produced output energy 25 times the input energy! > end point, Ruby Carat.

“ Proposes Changes to Green Party Platform Regarding Energy Policy”

“We suggest the Green Party say NO to FISSION, and YES to FUSION.

Whatever your political leaning, it makes sense to have everybody clear on the different kinds of nuclear power. I want EVERY POLITICAL PARTY to understand this difference, and support clean, green, cold fusion power. I just happen to be starting with the Greens as they are my registered party.

Now, let’s be clear: party politics are not my thing. It just goes to show how important this particular issue is that I am getting up off my *** to get involved this way.

Help the Greens. Help your third party. If words are magnets, then let’s get the right words attracting clean fusion power, no matter what the political stride.”

“Green Party Moves Closer to Support Cold Fusion” October 22, 2010 Ruby Carat – Audio Commentary – James Martinez

“James Martinez, the only talk radio host regularly featuring interviews with cold fusion scientists has formally achieved another first: getting politicians to talk about cold fusion. On the Thursday, Oct. 21 edition of Cash-flow, James interviewed Laura Wells, the Green Party candidate for Governor of California. She had recently been arrested trying to enter the candidate’s debate, from which all third party candidates are excluded, and with a ticket in hand, was escorted by armed men into a waiting vehicle. Outrageous indeed.

But, could the Green Party be the first third party to openly support cold fusion on their party platform, forcing the discussion of clean energy towards a viable alternative to the renewables?

Word has it that David Cobb, the 2004 Green Party presidential candidate is meeting in DC with some LENR scientists to be briefed on this technology. If he realizes the potential of this energy source and how it will completely change the paradigm of life in the 21st century, as well as the opportunity it gives the Green Party in the U.S., then he will have to go back and convince the party members.”

“Senate Debates Now on Patent Reform Act of 2011” – March 1, 2011 / Ruby Carat

“If you are concerned about the United States Patent and Trademark Office USPTO practices, the window is closing to contact your senator, as well as those on the the Judiciary Committee, in regards to the Patent Reform Act of 2011. They have opened the debate on the Patent Reform Act of 2011 to the full senate. Full text of the bill is available here. Members of the Judiciary are listed here.

Contact your Senator.

A list of supporters of this bill is located. (see article)

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has been criticized for failing to issue patents related to cold fusion technologies, thereby suppressing the free-flow of information on new energy research and hampering the development of clean energy devices. For some cogent thoughts on this issue, see the recent post “Robert Duncan Interview on Cash-flow: ‘Public Investment means public ownership.’ “

“A Letter to Ed Markey” (Congressional Representative) – April 20, 2011 / Ruby Carat

“And as we have learned more, we wonder now at the worth of sending letters to politicians. Does it really make a difference? Deep water permits for oil drilling in the Gulf, temporarily suspended, have been continued, and there is no evidence at all that multi-national corporations such as BP have developed any tools capable of responding to a similar disaster, which makes it only a matter of time before another one occurs. As the largest consumer of fossil fuels, the US has done little to create a clean energy policy.

Is it be better to throw our efforts at wealthy private individuals, angels, and venture capital firms, and direct that money towards the blossoming number of private companies who might rather stay under the radar of meddling politicians? Perhaps US officials get involved, they will ruin the opportunities that exist today for young scientists and start-up companies to create a new world?

We are conflicted.

In any case, though our letter writing has diminished in recent months (due to the demands of daily classroom activities), we have not stopped the activism.

We have spoken with colleagues who work at colleges and universities, educating them about the recent advances in LENR, most of whom knew nothing about it. We have spoken to our students, and showed them the papers and videos of these emerging technologies.

I have personally done math problems in algebra class adapted from this science. Yes, that’s right, energy out/in ratios, mass-to-energy equations, and many more LENR topics that I can simplify to basic algebra. And students loved it.

Today, we send Representative Ed Markey a letter thanking him for his accomplishments in holding Big Fossil accountable and pursuing justice for the environment. We also sent Representative Henry Waxman and House Energy and Environment Committee Chairman a letter as well. Each letter asks for support for LENR research and includes a Cold Fusion Now sticker.

As we mailed these few letters today, not knowing if it is helpful, or possibly hurtful, we continue to keep talking, and keep typing. (See archived post: Jan Marwan: “Start talking.”) And if your so inclined, and you feel it helps, copy and paste portions of this letter in a message to send to your Representative.”

“He’s an underdog, but this Navy veteran from Michigan has the most relevant credentials in energy interests, and he’s not afraid to share them even during his run for the U.S. Senate.

“Government Subsidies for the Energy Industry” – June 27, 2011 / Ruby Carat

“An oilman drills a well that costs $100,000. He finds a reservoir containing $10,000,000 worth of oil. The well produces $1 million worth of oil per year for ten years. In the very first year, thanks to the depletion allowance, the oilman could deduct 27.5 per cent, or $275,000, of that $1 million in income from his taxable income. Thus, in just one year, he’s deducted nearly three times his initial investment. But the depletion allowance continues to pay off. For each of the next nine years, he gets to continue taking the $275,000 depletion deduction. By the end of the tenth year, the oilman has deducted $2.75 million from his taxable income, even though his initial investment was only $100,000.”

“President John Kennedy was fighting to repeal the oil depletion allowance at the time of his death, and a Democratic attempt to repeal it was recently killed in the Senate.” –Charles Baron

“If patents aren’t issued, government is not only withholding funding, it’s inhibiting the technological development of clean energy.

Working to ensure the new-energy movement has funding from both private and government entities includes demanding federal laws and tax-breaks that support new-energy researchers and companies developing clean LENR technologies.

“2 Month Activity Log” July 13, 2010 / Ruby Carat

“Our first act was to get Cold Fusion Now stickers printed up from Sticker Guy.  They took quite a while to be delivered, but they look great, and since the end of June, we have started sending them out as promotional tools.

Stickers were first sent, along with a letter supporting cold fusion research, to our “local” California Senators Boxer and Feinstein in California and Representative Mike Thompson.

Since then, they have been mailed around the country to friends, artists, and scientists in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, New Mexico, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Florida.  We are hoping to get some good photos of Active CFN Sticker locations, so if you got yours, be sure to document that location – and email us your photo!

Cold Fusion Now stickers traveled with the Humboldt County Green Party delegation to Detroit, MI for their Green Party National Meeting aligned with the US Social Forum. We continue to lobby for cold fusion energy to be included in their party platform.

Sporting our stickers around town is a real conversation starter and the CFN crew spoke with a bunch of citizens during Arts Alive! art night and the 4th of July Independence Day celebration. We had a sign that sparked some interest and several individuals stopped to ask “What is cold fusion?” and chat.  A surprising number of people already knew what it was, and it was interesting to see their faces change as memories of  “Oh yeah…… that cold fusion…” replayed in their minds.

The Tea Party Patriots had a booth at the 4th of July street fair, and I spoke with one of their members.  Left or right, it doesn’t matter, energy is on the minds of everybody, and I was happy with “Hmmm, I’ll look into it…”

We have just started the whole sticker mailing and I can tell you we have plans to contact members of the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources  and Environment and Public Works committees as well as key legislators in the House of Representatives.  Hollywood has been targeted for its talent, and money,  and we continue to promote cold fusion to artists, musicians, and students, as well as political entities.”

“Response From the Secretary of State” – August 6, 2011 / Ruby Carat

“Cold Fusion Now recently sent a second letter to the Department of Energy DoE requesting remedy to the lack of funding for LENR research. 30 signatures in support of the letter were collected over two hours from concerned citizens during an event at the beach.

We are gratified to receive a response from Mr. Eugene A. Henry, though it was not the response I had hoped for.

“However, it is clear the topic of low energy nuclear reactions remains highly speculative and that the purported mechanism has not yet been validated by the physics community as a reality.” –Mr. Eugene A. Henry

On May 1, 1989, the Spring meeting of the American Physical Society held a Special Session on Cold Fusion. Just over one month after Professors Fleischmann and Pons made their announcement, scientists were trying to sort out the results from hasty experiments attempting to reproduce the excess-heat effect.

The most vocal of the group were all negative about the veracity of the claim, and apparently, they won the day, and the next two decades. Funding by the Department of Energy was denied to cold fusion researchers and they pointed to statements from this meeting to justify why.

Current Under-secretary of Energy Steve Koonin was at that meeting more than two decades ago, stating that there was no reliable confirmation [of the excess heat effect], and “we are suffering from the incompetence or delusions of Fleischmann and Pons.”

Twenty years later, with the world on fire, and a 100% reproducibility rate available for LENR, we can no longer ignore this solution to our energy problems.

Make postcards, get your friends to sign them, and send them to the Department of Energy. We need a miracle on Pennsylvania Avenue.”

Subject: Cold Fusion

Dear Mr. Owens:

This is in response to your e-mail message to Secretary Chu dated September 13, 2011 in which you asked to know where the Department of Energy stands on “cold fusion.”

In 1989, a review panel that had been charged by the Department concluded that reports of the experimental results of excess heat from calorimetric cells did not present convincing evidence that useful sources of energy will result from the phenomena attributed to “cold fusion.” To quote the panel, “Hence, we recommend against the establishment of special programs or research centers to develop cold fusion.”

In 2004, the Department organized a second review of the field and that review reached essentially the same conclusion as the 1989 review. The Department’s Office of Sciences does not provide any funding support for “cold fusion” research.

“But these letters are not in vain. Writing a letter is a lesson in expressing a complicated issue in a one-page petition; collecting

The Department of Energy will be the last in line for their device – and it’s going to be a long line.

Can you take a moment and sign the petition to publicly put this issue in front of President Obama? You must register with using an email address to sign the petition, and the effort needs over 24,000 signatures to make it through.

“Letters to Congressional Energy Sub-committees Repeat Hearings Request”

In an editorial for the Los Angeles Times on June 18, 1989, Representative Dana Rohrabacher chastised physicists for their vehemence, beginning with a quote:

“Every great idea has three stages of reaction:
1) It won’t work.
2) Even if it works, it’s not useful.
3) I said it was a great idea all along.”
–Arthur C. Clarke

It has been almost three months since two obscure chemists at the University of Utah held a press conference to announce that they had found something truly incredible in their test tube. Their reported discovery of cold fusion, if accurate, would usher not only science but all aspects of modern life into an era of growth and improvement that mankind has not experienced since the Industrial Revolution.” –  Representative Dana Rohrabacher

Perhaps our message will prompt him to think back to those moments when he had the courage and fire to speak for what was right, and this time, feel the strong and worthy support behind him to do it again.

In politics, we don’t have to agree on everything.

We just need folks to do their jobs.

Join us in asking Congress to do theirs.

Why doesn’t the DOE consider LENR science and technology, and why isn’t the Patent Office prioritizing LENR patents?

“On the Nation’s Space Effort”, John F. Kennedy 12 September 1962. Address at Rice University in Houston, Texas (voice recording)

President Obama is the Chief Excecutive Officer of NASA.

President Obama is Commander in Chief of the Navy (research laboratories) and the Defense Intelligence Agency.

LENR/cold fusion power is a matter of national security for both NASA and the Armed Forces. Please study what NASA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Navy know about LENR/cold fusion power. That information is found in the following papers and videos and is essential for a good reading of my adaptation of Kennedy’s Address.

  • LENR could serve as a power source for batteries that could last for decades, providing power for electricity, sensors, military operations, and other applications in remote areas, including space. LENR could also have medical applications for disease treatment, pacemakers, or other equipment. Because nuclear fusion releases 10 million times more energy per unit mass than does liquid transportation fuel, the military potential of such high-energy-density power sources is enormous. And since the U.S. military is the largest user of liquid fuel for transportation, LENR power sources could produce the greatest transformation of the battlefield for U.S. forces since the transition from horsepower to gasoline power.

“Address the Nation: LENR Power and Expansion into Space” 


We live in a nation noted for knowledge, in a nation noted for progress, in a nation noted for strength, and we stand in need of all three, for we are in an hour of change and challenge, in a decade of hope and fear, in an age of both knowledge and ignorance. The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.

Despite the striking fact that most of the scientists that the world has ever known are alive and working today, despite the fact that this nation’s own scientific manpower is leading the world, despite that, the vast stretches of the unknown and the unanswered and the unfinished still far outstrip our collective comprehension.

No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come, but condense, if you will, the 50,000 years of man¹s recorded history in a time span of but a half a century. Stated in these terms, we know very little about the first 40 years, except at the end of them advanced man had learned to use the skins of animals to cover them. Then about 10 years ago, under this standard, man emerged from his caves to construct other kinds of shelter. Only five years ago man learned to write and use a cart with wheels. Christianity began less than two years ago. The printing press came this year, and then less than two months ago, during this whole 50-year span of human history, the steam engine provided a new source of power.

Newton explored the meaning of gravity. Last month electric lights and telephones and automobiles and airplanes became available. Only last week did we develop penicillin and television and nuclear power, and now with America’s newest spacecraft leaving the solar system we literally reach out to the stars before midnight tonight.

This is a breathtaking pace, and such a pace cannot help but create new ills as it dispels old, new ignorance, new problems, new dangers. Surely the development of new knowledge promises high costs and hardships, as well as high reward.

So it is not surprising that some would have us stay where we are a little longer to rest, to wait. But this country of the United States was not built by those who waited and rested and wished to look behind them.

If this capsule history of our progress teaches us anything, it is that man, in his quest for knowledge and progress, is determined and cannot be deterred. From the frontiers of science now comes to us a revolutionary source of energy, LENR power. Inexpensive, clean, and nearly unlimited LENR power developed from early cold fusion research. The world’s conversion to LENR power will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the great adventures of all time, and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the worldwide conversion to LENR power.

Those who came before us made certain that this country rode the first waves of the industrial revolutions, the first waves of modern invention, and the first wave of nuclear power, and this generation does not intend to founder in the backwash of the coming age of LENR power. We mean to be a part of it–we mean to lead it. For the eyes of the world will now look forward to LENR power.

Yet the vows of this Nation can only be fulfilled if we in this Nation are first, and, therefore, we intend to be first. In short, our leadership in science and in industry, our hopes for peace and security, our obligations to ourselves as well as others, all require us to make this effort, to solve these mysteries, to solve them for the good of all men, and to become the world’s leading LENR powered nation.

With LENR power, we can now truly set sail on the new sea of space. All NASA missions unrealized can now be realized because of this inexpensive, clean, unlimited source of energy. LENR power and space are the new frontiers to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For LENR power, space science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether LENR power will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether unlimited LENR power and the new ocean of space will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say the we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of unlimited energy and permanent space habitation any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.

There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its population will deserve the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, convert to LENR power and expand habitation into space? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 93 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why, 43 years ago, fly the to the Moon?

We choose to convert to LENR power and enable permanent habitation of humanity in space. We choose to convert to LENR power and see humanity expand into space and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.

It is for these reasons that I regard the decision to shift our efforts from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.

The conversion to LENR power and expansion into space will spur growth, our science and education will be enriched by new knowledge of our universe and environment, by new techniques of learning and mapping and observation, by new tools and computers for industry, medicine, the home as well as the school. All will reap the harvest of these gains.

However, I think we’re going to do it, and I think that we must pay what needs to be paid. I don’t think we ought to waste any money, but I think we ought to do the job. It will be done during or past the term of office of some of the people who sit here on this platform. But it will be done. And it will be done before the end of the next two decades.

Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, “Because it is there.”

Well, the unlimited, clean energy of LENR power and the frontiers of space are there, and we’re going to answer the call, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God’s blessing on the most challenging and daring and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked.

Thank you

“Special Message to the Congress on Urgent National Needs” Page 4


President John F. Kennedy May 25th 1961. Delivered in person before a joint session of Congress announcing aspirations for the Apollo Program (read)

I therefore ask the Congress, above and beyond the increases I have earlier requested for space activities, to provide the funds which are needed to meet the following national goals…

     No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space…

     Now this is a choice which this country must make, and I am confident that under the leadership of the Space Committees of the Congress, and the Appropriating Committees, that you will consider the matter carefully…

     It is a most important decision that we make as a nation. But all of you have lived through the last four years and have seen the significance of space and the adventures in space, and no one can predict with certainty what the ultimate meaning will be of mastery of space…

     I think every citizen of this country as well as the Members of the Congress should consider the matter carefully in making their judgment, to which we have given attention over many weeks and months…

     This decision demands a major national commitment of scientific and technical manpower, materiel and facilities…

     It means we cannot afford undue work stoppages, inflated costs of material or talent, wasteful interagency rivalries, or a high turnover of key personnel…

     New objectives and new money cannot solve these problems. They could in fact, aggravate them further–unless every scientist, every engineer, every serviceman, every technician, contractor, and civil servant gives his personal pledge that this nation will move forward, with the full speed of freedom, in the exciting adventure of space…

In conclusion, let me emphasize one point: that we are determined, as a nation in 1961 that freedom shall survive and succeed–and whatever the peril and set-backs, we have some very large advantages.

     The first is the simple fact that we are on the side of liberty–and since the beginning of history, and particularly since the end of the Second World War, liberty has been winning out all over the globe.

     A second real asset is that we are not alone. We have friends and allies all over the world who share our devotion to freedom.

–serious conversations do not require a pale unanimity–they are rather the instruments of trust and understanding over a long road.

     A third asset is our desire for peace. –that we seek no conquests, no satellites, no riches–that we seek only the day when “nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

     Finally, our greatest asset in this struggle is the American people–their willingness to pay the price for these programs–to understand and accept a long struggle–to share their resources with other less fortunate people–to meet the tax levels and close the tax loopholes I have requested–to exercise self-restraint instead of pushing up wages or prices, or over-producing certain crops, or spreading military secrets, or urging unessential expenditures or improper monopolies or harmful work stoppages–to serve in the Peace Corps or the Armed Services or the Federal Civil Service or the Congress–to strive for excellence in their schools, in their cities and in their physical fitness and that of their children–to take part in Civil Defense–to pay higher postal rates, and higher payroll taxes and higher teachers’ salaries, in order to strengthen our society–to show friendship to students and visitors from other lands who visit us and go back in many cases to be the future leaders, with an image of America–and I want that image, and I know you do, to be affirmative and positive–and, finally, to practice democracy at home, in all States, with all races, to respect each other and to protect the Constitutional rights of all citizens.”

A Story of Cold Fusion Power

The long cold fusion summer is heating up nicely. The transmutation era is readying to be launched. LENR engineering is entering the business world.

As I ponder this fact, I reflect with amazement at the amount, quality, and wealth of actions undertaken by “cold fusioneers” informing governments and politicos, activists and environmentalists, and many others about state of the art cold fusion; gratitude blossoms in my heart.

As the message conveyed by the likes of Cold Fusion Now .org and other media wizards reaches more and more people an exponential growth of understanding is inevitable. Big thanks to you all.

This novella was just published and is another example of exciting cold fusion media. It is also a “perfect kick back, relax, and read” story for this long cold fusion summer.

The story lends insight to intrigue, providing repast to the tension this summers’ suspense brings. Its’ cleverly crafted plot takes the reader thru a few twists and turns in the world of politics, cold fusion, and national security.

Post Script


Sometimes the outline of an article is more inspiring than the fully fleshed out ‘Real McCoy’. A shadow, outline, or barely observable phenomenon can inspire thought, curiosity, and investigation; powering up that wonderful pondering machine (the engagement of  others).

When first posting the beginnings of this articles’ creative process I thought, “Why this premature public exposure of the ‘process’?”

Shortly after the thought, Brad Arnold commented that I may just be trying to impose a ‘self fulfilling prophecy’…

Brad, you are right! Thanks, I hadn’t  realized that and to tell the truth… now I know that… I realize this…


The outline IS the article.

Cold Fusion NASA LENR part three Spacebound and Earthbound Transportation

It is argued that both LENR and Hydrino Capture are not cold fusion, yet for many reasons the term cold fusion exists in popular vernacular encompassing nuclear reactions that happen in environments less hot than the sun. For many people the term has sentimental value as well… that’s the logic of it.

Often what accompanies discovery and truthfulness in science is confusion, anger, and persecution; as is seen in the history of cold fusion research. Yet good science has gotten us this far; cold fusion research has overcome adversity through strict adherence to scientific method and consistent first-rate scientific review.

Thanks to the fact that scientists are basically tenacious creatures, we now have solid cold fusion science and engineering behind the LENR devices entering the marketplace.

The Blood of the Martyrs

‘The Blood of the Martyrs’ is a one-act play by Percival Wilde based on the short story by Stephen Vincent Benet, later adapted by Donald MacFarlane for the radio, and broadcast over station WQXR in New York City, Dec 7, 1938.

The play stars Professor Malzius and is a story about truth in science that sheds relevant light on possible reasons for the falsification of data at MIT and the subsequent persecution and perseverance of cold fusion researchers.

Mr. Wilde summarizes for the press…

  • “Mr Benet is a poet who has brought to his prose writing the spiritual and imaginative qualities that characterize his verse. His conception, in the short story, which became the basis of the present play, may be stated concisely… If the scientist does not teach the objective truth as he knows it, there will be an end to continuity and to science. Many men have sought the truth, but have, in these horrible days, compromised with their consciences so that they may continue to work; but to the true scientist compromise is unthinkable. It is better for him to die at his post than to lend the weight of his authority to the spread of false beliefs, and this is both the tragedy and triumph of Malzius: if there are enough men like him the world will emerge from the quagmire of expedient creed into which the dictators have led it. ‘The blood of the martyrs,’ declared Tertullian, ‘is the seed of the Church.’ In these times the blood of the martyrs is seed of liberalism and science and truth.”


For further reflection are the words of Louis Pasteur, in his last speech, given upon being awarded the Diamond Cross of Saint Anne from the Czar of Russia. Louis Pasteur addresses his words to the students in the crowd, his voice ringing with conviction…

  • “You young men, doctors and scientists of the future, do not let your selves be tainted by a barren skepticism, nor discouraged by the sadness of certain hours that creep over nations. Do not become angry at your opponents, for no scientific theory has ever been accepted without opposition. Live in the serene peace of libraries and laboratories. Say to yourselves first: ‘What have I done for my instruction?’ and as you gradually advance: ‘What am I accomplishing?’ until the time comes when you may have the immense happiness of thinking that you have contributed in some way to the welfare and progress of mankind.” (Vallery-Radot 1901, vol. 2, pp. 297–298)


Cold Fusion – LENR Engineering

NASA states that the science and engineering encompassing cold fusion LENR is “not a narrow band set of physical phenomena” and that “devices are being engineered in real time”. (link)

With 3-D printing and nano engineering being utilized to create the lattice; we will see many unique devices entering the marketplace, both thermal and electrical (hardy, robust, and scalable), for every imaginable application.

One might posit that two categories of ‘cold fusion’ devices will gain hold in their respective markets:

  • LENR/Thermal – heat without a carbon footprint
  • LENR/Electric – electricity without a generator


Co-generation (where both heat and electricity is needed) will likely utilize LENR thermal devices along with electrical generators. Waste heat will be utilized for environmental needs.

LENR Marketplace,, and others are poised to enter the LENR/Thermal market.

NASA, and others are poised to enter the LENR/Electric market.

LENR/Electric – Transportation Earthbound

Cold fusion electricity without generators is a boon for transportation. It is well known that series hybrid systems (where torque is exclusively supplied by electricity) saves fuel and reduces emissions. Yet few people know the extent that series hybrid systems are currently utilized; electricity is the sole source of torque in oceangoing vessels, trains, hybrid buses, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and the next generation of airplanes.

All these vehicles will benefit from LENR/Electrical devices. They require little engineering for conversion from fossil fuel powered generators and batteries to LENR electrical power.

  • Oceangoing Vessels: “As in most modern cruise ships, Queen Mary 2′s (link) propulsion machinery is electrically decoupled from her propeller shafts and her propulsion arrangement can therefore be more accurately described as “CODAG-electric” (by analogy with turbo-electric and diesel-electric). The diesel engines and gas turbines drive electrical generators, which provide the power to drive four 21,500 kW (28,800 hp) Alstom electrical motors located inside the podded propulsors (and thus entirely outside the vessel’s hull).” 
  • Trains: “The main reason why diesel locomotives (link) are hybrid is because this eliminates the need for a mechanical transmission. By going with a hybrid setup, the main diesel engine (3,200hp) can run at a constant speed, turning an electrical generator. The generator sends electrical power to a traction motor at each axle, which powers the wheels. The traction motors can produce adequate torque at any speed, from a full stop to 110 mph (177 kph), without needing to change gears. This 270,000-pound (122,470-kg) locomotive is designed to tow passenger-train cars at speeds of up to 110 miles per hour (177 kph). The diesel engine makes 3,200 horsepower, and the generator can turn this into almost 4,700 amps of electrical current. The four drive motors use this electricity to generate over 64,000 pounds of thrust.” 
  • Hybrid Buses:  “San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom states that Muni hybrid buses (link) are essentially electric buses just like Muni’s electric trolley buses. Rather than get their electricity from overhead wires, they use a small diesel engine (5.9 liter Cummins ISB found in pick-up trucks) to turn a generator that, together with traction batteries, supply the necessary electrical energy to move the bus through the streets of San Francisco. Muni’s hybrid buses are “series hybrids” meaning there is no mechanical connection between the engine and wheels.”
  • Cars: “Top 10 Electric Car Makers – United States 2012 EV Market Leaders (link)
  • Motorcycles: “Electric motorcycles (link) include the Zero DS, Brammo Empulse, Native S, Moto Czysz E1PC and Vectrix scooter. Electric motorcycles, though still in their infancy, are starting to gain a foothold in the marketplace.” 
  • Bicycles: “Electric bicycles (link) are part of a wide range of Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) that provide convenient local transportation. Generally designed for one person and small cargo capacity, electric bike range, speed, and cost are moderate.” 
  • Planes: Cold Fusion – NASA – LENR Part ll Flight (link)


NASA Offers LENR/Electric Technology to Private Companies 

In this technology roadmap by NASA, LENR is targeted as an energy source.

DRAFT Launch Propulsion Systems Roadmap Technology Area 01 (pdf)  For LENR see page 18

Langley’s Low-Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) Technology Available (link)

  • “The advantages of the present invention are numerous. Devices/systems made in accordance with the present invention control the frequency of the SPP resonance and its uniformity over large surface or volume regions. This will allow an entire device to participate in heavy electron production and ensuing energy generation.”
  • “The present invention is adaptable to a variety of physical states/geometries and is scalable in size thereby making it available for energy production in a wide variety of applications (e.g., hand-held and large scale electronics, automobiles, aircraft, surface ships, electric power generation, rockets, etc.)” from patent, line [0032]… NASA’s patent to Produce Heavy Electrons with LENR (patent)


LENR/Electric – Transportation Spacebound

In 1958, the “SPACE HANDBOOK: ASTRONAUTICS AND ITS APPLICATIONS” (link), by the Rand Corporation, was presented to the President at the birth of NASA. It clearly states that electricity produced without generators through some unknown nuclear process will enable astronautic transport with advanced electric drive.

  • “The primary consideration in obtaining useful thrust from ion or plasma rockets is the construction of lightweight electric power supplies. A gross reduction in electrical generation equipment, as compared with the most advanced of present equipments, is required to make the electric rocket really interesting for flight in the solar system.”
  • “It is contemplated that some type of nuclear fission (or fusion, farther in the future) could be used to supply the energy for the electric powerplant, although this step would still not eliminate the need for heavy electrical generators, unless direct conversion of fission to electrical energy in large quantities be came practical.” 
  • “2,100 kilovolts of electric power to produce 1 pound of thrust, assuming good efficiency. Optimistic estimates of electric-power-supply weight in dictate that the power unit would weigh about 8,500 pounds.” (or 4 lbs for each kilovolt using old technology)


Cold fusion electricity without generators is a boon to astronautics; for both launch and space drive. Electricity is the sole source of thrust for acceleration in advanced propulsion technologies.

Thrust and the energetics of acceleration can be understood as G – Force. Electricity provides more thrust than any other known vehicle propulsion technology.

  •        3 g –  Space Shuttle, maximum during launch and reentry
  •   7.19 g –  Apollo 16 on reentry
  •    100 g –  Sprint missile
  • 1,800 g –  Quicklaunch Maglev


Launch Platforms

Magnetic Levitation and Beamed Energy Launch platforms both have large electricity requirements. Low cost LENR electricity will enable utilization of these platforms for space flight.

Maglev Launch

The inventors of magnetic levitation, Dr. James Powell (bio) and Gordon Danby (bio), are the folks behind the Startram Project.

Vacuum Maglev Test Train Breaks Speed Record (link)

  • The test model of the vacuum maglev train was able to run in trial use at a speed equal to the speed of a plane, between 700 and 1,200 kilometers per hour. According to Science Pictorial, the Maglev trains would be even able to run –theoretically- at speeds of 20,000 kilometers per hour in vacuum tubes.”


Amazing Magnetics (video)

The Startram Project (link)

Beamed Energy Launch

  • “Lasers and microwaves are among the beamed-energy propulsion concepts the Advanced Space Transportation Program is pursuing. If the energy to propel a spacecraft doesn’t have to be carried on board the vehicle, significant weight reductions and performance improvements can be achieved. Beamed-energy propulsion uses a remote energy source — such as the Sun, a ground- or space-based laser or a microwave transmitter — to send power to the vehicle via a “beam” of electromagnetic radiation. Presently, beamed energy is the most promising technology to lower the cost of space transportation to tens of dollars per pound. Research into this technology is a joint effort of the Marshall Center, the Air Force Research Laboratory Propulsion Directorate at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, N.Y.” (link)


Lightcraft Technologies, Inc. (link)

  • A Lightcraft is a 1kg launch vehicle, made from high temperature ceramic materials, that flies into space on a megawatt laser beam.
  • The Lightcraft, shown here in flight, is both a single-stage-to-orbit launch vehicle and a satellite. (video)


Electric Space Drive

Ion Propulsion (link) is an electric space drive. Lightweight and dense, LENR/Electric devices will enable the use of stronger ion motors.

  • “The ion propulsion system’s efficient use of fuel and electrical power enable modern spacecraft to travel farther, faster, and cheaper than any other propulsion technology currently available. As new power sources become available, higher power thrusters will be developed that provide greater speed and more thrust.”


30KW Hall Ion Thrusters are in use today and high-powered thrusters are in development.

LENR/Electric and LENR/Thermal will ultimately transform the energy marketplace for transportation and environmental heat and electricity. This will take place quicker than any other technological revolution. I predict that by the end of the year Pesident Obama will announce the emergence of LENR engineering and that his administration, if elected, will do everything in its’ power to usher in nearly free  non-polluting LENR power and a newly empowered NASA charged with assisting humanity’s colonization of space. This will become a major plank in his election platform.

President Obama is the top excecutive in the hierarchy  of NASA.

  • “Fifty years after the creation of NASA, our goal is no longer just a destination to reach. Our goal is the capacity for people to work and learn and operate and live safely beyond the Earth for extended periods of time, ultimately in ways that are more sustainable and even indefinite. And in fulfilling this task, we will not only extend humanity’s reach in space—we will strengthen America’s leadership here on Earth.” —President Barack Obama, April 15, 2010
