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.”
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.
