The 10/10/10 Global Work Party happened all around the world, and Cold Fusion Now represented here in Eureka, CA. The forecast was Cold – and it was – raining, with a gusty Pacific breeze.
Still, we set-up at the downtown Gazebo with a table full of new energy info, initially covered from the rain.
A little droopy from the drizzle, but people saw us from down the block with this homemade banner.
These are some of the materials people looked at. Some people wrote down the names of the books and authors.
Finally the rain stopped enough, and people came strolling by. We had about 35 people actively discussing energy issues and got 30 signatures for our letter to Energy Secretary Chu. Three people stopped to talk here, but only the young man signed the letter.
We gave away “new energy starter kits” with some info on the basic physics of energy, a Cold Fusion Now sticker, and a few lucky (the most interested) got a free issue of Infinite-Energy compliments of Infinite-Energy.
I used diagrams to explain what deuterium was.
People were overwhelmingly receptive and supportive. Everyone who stopped to speak with us is really ready for change. We had some wonderful conversations about energy, and the differences between types of nuclear power. I think this is an issue I will pursue further at future outreach events. People just are confused at what the word “nuclear” means.
Cold Fusion Now did what they could today to communicate the importance of funding LENR research. And we look forward to more events where the focus is on real solutions to our energy crisis in the future. It wasn’t just about doin right, it was fun, too!
Perhaps y’all know about Wolfram Alpha, the search/computational engine from Stephan Wolfram.
Well if you look up “cold fusion”, the response is erroneous.
However, there is a Feedback box right below it. I have entered feedback asking them to correct the entry and pointing them to the extensive documentation on the lenr.org site.
Please take a moment to click the “cold fusion” link above, read the entry for cold fusion, and enter some feedback to help correct their mistake.
Now that’s something – correcting Stephan Wolfram!

This was the automated response:
We appreciate your feedback regarding Wolfram|Alpha. The issue you reported has been passed along to our development team for review. Thank you for helping us improve Wolfram|Alpha. Best wishes, The Wolfram|Alpha Team www.wolframalpha.com Name: Input: cold fusion Occupation: teacher Organization: Message: Please revise your statement definition of "cold fusion". An extensive peer-reviewed documentation has occurred over the last two decades that shows cold fusion is a new type of nuclear effect different than the conventional hot fusion model. Look at full documentation at http://www.lenr.org This is an important energy source for our future. Please revise your statement. Otherwise, thanks for an awesome search engine!
