We depend on dictionaries to provide meaning in our lives. What does your dictionary have to say about cold fusion/LENR energy research and engineering? Let’s take a look and see what these online dictionaries have to say about the nuclear active environment of “cold fusion”. Editors of dictionaries have an obligation to get it right.
My favorite dictionary, until recently, was the “Websters’ New World Dictionary.

Cold fusion definition:
The fusion of hydrogen atoms into helium at room temperature. In 1989 two scientists announced that they had produced cold fusion in their laboratory, an achievement that — if true — would have meant a virtually unlimited cheap energy supply for humanity. When other scientists were unable to reproduce their results, the scientific community concluded that the original experiment had been flawed.

We are sad to find that the dictionaries in our lives just don’t get it right.
We can not depend upon our most trusted dictionaries to provide real and timely definitions of the cold fusion/LENR energy phenomenon.
Cold fusion or low-energy-nuclear-reaction (LENR) has now been demonstrated to initiate various nuclear reactions in solid materials without application of high energy. This creates a significant challenge for science to explain and for industry to use in a rational way. Therefore, understanding what has been discovered is very important.

“The phenomenon called cold fusion has been demonstrated to cause initiation of a variety of nuclear reactions, occasionally at rates able to produce commercial grade energy. The process is cheaper, easier to produce, freer of radioactive products, and likely to be more useful than the conventional source of fusion power called hot fusion. Once the common myth that claims the phenomenon is false has been changed and suitable funding levels can be provided, mankind may acquire an ideal energy source, as the future requires. In the process, society needs to understand and correct the flaws that permitted such a distortion of the evaluation process used by various scientists and governments.”
