I don't know whether to laugh or cry over this article that was shared by a regular here, Mr. C.N. It seems that Bill Gates, billionaire founder of Microsoft, is sponsoring research into Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, or to give it its more popular name, cold fusion:

Bill Gates Sponsoring Palladium-Based LENR Technology

Now, before we get to the important stuff, let me first explain why I don't know whether to laugh or cry over this one. On the one hand, I'm inclined to laugh, because it means that a bona fide member of the establishment sees enough promise in the phenomenon of cold fusion to be willing to sponsor research in it. So... kuddos for Mr. Gates. On the other hand, however, if his sponsorship means the low energy nuclear reaction equivalent of Microsoft products, then I am inclined to cry, for it's almost a guarantee that that if the same standards are to be applied to LENRs as have been applied to its operating systems, then cold fusion is doomed. I'd be far happier to announce that Apple, and not Mr. Gates, had decided to sponsor the phenomenon.

But careful reading of the article evinces two points: first, Gates is backing a nanotechnology approach to creating a palladium lattice with the required properties to make cold fusion "work" infallibly, each time, every time:

"In June of this year, he wrote a blog titled “We need Energy Miracles” to stress the importance of new technologies like LENR.

"Tech Metals Insider previously reported on the technology, its “side effects” of creating precious metals, and its application by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan.

"During his trip to Italy he visited the national agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable economic development (ENEA) where scientists have made significant progress towards a working design for low energy nuclear fusion. The centerpiece of their design is the same as in Mitsubishi’s: palladium.

"Creating palladium foil with just the right parameters, and managing stress levels in the material was a key issue, one that the researchers at EMEA were able to resolve several years ago.

"A palladium miracle in the making? It will take a while to find out, but LENR certainly has the attention of serious scientists and investors today who believe in its future" (Emphasis added) (See also 11. A Visit With Vittorio Violante of ENEA Frascati  Scroll down the page to find the article, under number 11)

Ok. Score one in the column "We can laugh and rejoice."

But then one has to point out the curious omission: Mr. Gates visited Italy to consult with Italian scientists and researchers involved in LANR/LENR (Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions/ Low Energy Nuclear Reactions). Yet, the article mentions no visit to probably the most well-known Italian scientist and researcher in the field, Dr. Andrea Rossi, whose E-CAT device we blogged about late last year, pointing out that the Universities of Uppsala in Sweden and Bologna in Italy had conducted thorough reviews of Mr. Rossi's technique, and concluded that low energy nuclear reactions were indeed occurring. Rossi's research has provoked clear international and academic interest, and yet, Mr. Gates did not visit him, or he did visit him, and we're simply not being told.

Either way, score one in the "we can cry" column, for the research Mr. Gates appears to be backing does not appear to have any direct connection to Mr. Rossi. Perhaps Mr. Gates' assistance came with too high a price tag for Dr. Rossi, or perhaps it was not even offered at all. Either way, the omission casts a pall of doubt over his efforts.

So here's my high octane speculation: the article refers not only to Mr. Gates' interest in cold fusion, but also that of the giant Japanese corporation, Mitsubishi, and perhaps this is the hidden story, for Rossi has consistently - at least to my knowledge, though I certainly could be mistaken - refused to become too entangled with big corporate backers thus far. And thus, we may be looking at a story hidden within a story, that of corporate jockeying and positioning over who, ultimately, will dominate the field.

See you on the flip side...

    Shell oil,while under the stewardship of the Dutch royal family,put a nuclear physicist under exclusive contract (owning his intellectual property) after he did experiments using ball lightning to contain the fusionable material and according to his measurements of the results created nutrino release,proof of a fusion reaction taking place. He wanted a sponsor of 3 million dollars so he could do the experiment with better measuring equipment to double check his results when shell stepped in and bought him out and put him under lock and key at the eindhoven university in Holland. They put a condition in his contract that he must prove the concept of his experiment on paper before he is given the money to repeat the experiment.

    So the FED is out of gold and a bunch of countries want theirs? No problem. Just stall long enough to take control of the LENR field and they’ll be transmutating it from tungsten.

    It would be a very nice way out for them. “What we gave you gold plated tungsten bars? Oh so sorry it must not have finished the transmutation. Here have a real gold bar and we’ll take that one back.”

    First you have to make sure nobody else has it.

    As to which LENR will provide useful energy first I’ll go with

    The latter apparently have the ability to control the heat spike that others don’t. Turn up, down or leave it at a level they choose.

    Gates steals technology from those so virtuous they veritably pave his route to and from their work. I’d feel for Rossi except that this has been predictable from inception. Even the public versions of history cover this bit exhaustively. It chimes from every corner of the planet. You snooze, you lose.

  4. Blue Dragon Lord on January 8, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    Ok this is interesting for many reasons. First ‘Rossi’s’ conclusions and and theory are sound low energy cold fusion so no more second guessing what he then does or in this case does not do with that is sad but true. This will work fine get on with it as this has been known for quiet some time really old stuff this. People only remember some people from history if it turned up in a movie like Nicolas Famel so called hermadic alchemist the maker of the philosopher stone to give long life but really he lived from 1330 to march 2nd. 1418 sure great age for those times but he was in fact a scribe collector of manuscripts really old works dating back he even had an original ‘Book of Abramelin the Mage’ many works translated from Arabic and hebrew most of the thing attributed to him later on like being quoted by Isac Newton in the Dragon book of Famel, so we can see why i got interested. Sorry totally off the point the confusion comes from the chatter about from lead to gold and so on (lead being one atom off from Au gold) what he was researching way back then was from Egyptian scrolls that had been transcribed on exotic matter from gold which is where all the ideas originally came from the white cone cakes made from powdered gold and fed to the Pharoes thought to have been the original white powder substance inside the arc of the covenant shot plasma bolts hence the interest in hebrew text do keep up. Exotic white powder gold Causes; levitation, space, time anomalies greatest every conductors and capacitors ever, even another Nickolas had an interest Tesler a real genius but free energy was not popular back then either shame but history always repeats itself. So why do these great ideas get stopped by the elites those who have the illusion of control well this site has many good example of them. Oh well that is all the dots there to connect. The confusion come when people hear change precious metals into some thing else then they get side tracked into whether they should laugh or cry the something else is the big thing and weights less than the original mass literally under the right circumstances just test some with a current less than nothing and goes with a bang if too much stimulation and is no longer there until it comes back as i said time and space. Now if the brilliant Albert E=MC2 had know about this stuff his 27 page calculation (not many people know that sure) which after study was only wrong in three place he would have come to a different outcome as remember the time and space thing well this can go faster than the speed of light so sadly his conclusion just may have been wrong, but sure has all the components for low energy too if that was the real question being asked sorry for the overload of information there but these things are easy to check out if you know the right questions to ask but you must know the answer to ask those questions and stop going off on a tangent with crazy half baked ideas if you know say so but must be provable and verifiable not guesses just the facts way too much fun in my humble opinion.

    Creating gold from platinum is not a very cost effective procedure. You’d rather create platinum from gold wouldn’t you?

  6. basta on January 8, 2015 at 10:34 am

    I’ve read (from those who desperately want to see him succeed) that Rossi is his own worst enemy; he’s definitely got something real there, but apparently his personal skills and business sense leave much much much to be desired. The latter appears totally nonexistant, replaced by a freewheeling megalomania.

    And I see below that Churchless Mouse points out that in fact Gates had met with him on an earlier trip, and apparently did not go overunity on Rossi’s charm.

    After losing my shirt on some fracking stocks this Christmas with the collapse of that bubble industry, I’m taking what’s left of my retirement money and dumping it into Gates’ sanctioned cold fusion tech. Anytime Bill Gates or Warren Buffet announce they are going all in in some new business sector, I jump in head first as well. That is how I roll. (I’m still holding onto my silver Mr. Warren Buffet). I am especially interested in the above linked to company based out of Chicago whose cold fusion technology will produce gold as a waste material. Eureka! How could anyone pass up that investment. This line in the article was the selling point for me: “financing is provided by insiders and several angel investors, but larger amounts of capital are needed to take the technology to its next level.” Insiders buying? Angel investors? Somebody knows something. I want in now. This could be Google and the Klondike gold rush rolled into one. I hate always being last to the new technology stock bubbles. And this promises to produce gold along with cheap energy. What could go wrong?

      I just got off the phone with a friend who who just went over to visit the business headquarters of this Chicago based cold fusion/alchemical gold start-up. He says it looks promising. It is in the same building as Rahm Emmanual’s business offices. He had difficulty at first locating the company because there was no business logo and the company was sharing offices with a midwest kosher meatpacking business. When he did eventually locate them, he knocked on the door and was greeted by a kindly rabbi. Behind him in the room were a bunch of hassidim manning phone banks. Apparently there was very little furniture because the company is so new. My friend and I figure the large contingent of pious hassidim involved in the company is surely a good sign: the company will have strong business ethics.

      Interesting as well– when my friend left after conferring with the hassidic businessmen about investing in their start up company, he bumped into a gentleman who also had an office in the same building. Apparently he is the great grandson of Al Capone.

        I just sent this email to Pope Francis,

        Dear Pontificus Maximus,

        By now you must be aware that you have a neighbor in Italy who is on the verge of mass marketing viable cold fusion technology. (You had another neighbor in Argentina long ago who may have kickstarted this technology. A Dr. Richter. Possibly your paths had crossed?) Moreover, a byproduct of this cheap energy technology could be alchemical gold. Currently the inventor, a Mr. Rossi, is shrugging off big corporate investors. My suggestion to you would be to take what is left of the Vatican money and give his project backing along with the Vatican seal of approval. I seriously doubt he could shrug you off, Holy See.

        I see this marriage between the Vatican and Rossi’s cold fusion technology as the partnership which could restore the Roman Catholicism’s leverage over humanity by turning the Church into a major power broker in the energy sector, possibly usurping the muslim energy power brokers in the middle east. (You may win the next crusade without any bloodshed). As energy is probably more important today than spiritual sustenance, (you can’t light a room with prayer) I truly believe this is the direction the Church needs to go– offering salvation to humanity in the form of cheap energy. I’m no Madison Avenue marketing genius, but I’m sure cheap energy would be a lot more popular than the stifling moral dogma (with its dash of hypocrisy) that the Vatican is dishing out today. Who wouldn’t love an energy bill that is under a dollar?

        Moreover, by backing Rossi, the Vatican will be giving the inventor much needed institutional protection and the muscle he needs to bring his product to market, a product which can only benefit mankind. And as I stated above, this cold fusion technology has the added benefit of potentially producing gold as a byproduct. How about a global, gold-backed Vatican currency one day? Not only could you displace the greedy muslims with their petroleum monopoly, but you could displace that other rival yahweh sect and their currency monopoly. That would be quite a feat. Imagine offering China the benefit of cheap energy in return for Roman Catholic conversion? Also imagine the space applications of cold fusion. It can almost guarantee the Church a monopoly in the Roman Catholic evangelization of space. Your dream of baptizing an alien could just may be a reality. I pray, Holy Father, you live to see it.

        Blessings to you,

        Frankie Calcutta

    Just how much money does the Gates family need. Come on people don’t you have it all you can desire already is there no end to your greed. Is what Gates is backing more along the line of alchemy to produce not energy but precious metals like gold and silver instead. You can keep you billions of dollars just let us live our lives in peace and a little prosperity for once don’t be a narcissistic bastard grow up.

  9. Robert Barricklow on January 8, 2015 at 9:46 am

    Having read Hard Drive & Overdrive
    Bill Gates is a proud pirate(stealing ideas/concepts)
    and a great salesman with hidden/connections.

    Whose he going to pillage this time?

    • Robert Barricklow on January 8, 2015 at 9:47 am

      Bye the bye
      How about that latest False Flag in Paris?

    Does this mean the reactor would have to be turned off and turned on every time it encountered a glitch??

  11. Aridzonan_13 on January 8, 2015 at 8:50 am

    Please remember the gentlemen that invented the ratchet and the variable speed windshield wiper. Both had their inventions stolen and both suffered years of litigation. One was in court a decade or more. So, this is something I’ve predicted for quite sometime that any PTB sponsored energy breakthroughs would solidify the Central Control model. I know of at least 6 new nuclear reactors that have been delayed drastically.. My guess is that the LENR will end up in all of them. YAAC, Yet Another Amazing Coincidence.

  12. Churchless Mouse on January 8, 2015 at 8:45 am

    Joseph, et al,

    Bill Gates Did indeed visit Rossi on an earlier trip to Italy. It was reported by infinite energy magazine, Which is recently updated his website with Gates’ new trip, While not archiving Gates’ earlier trip.

    They had a picture of him with Rossi.

    However, It is very interesting that Rossi is not mentioned on this latest trip reports. It’s as if Rossi went down the memory hole. Perhaps Gates’s visit to Rossi was away to goose the power elite.

  13. Lost on January 8, 2015 at 7:32 am

    If Gates is actually backing some form of real improvement in Cold Fusion, Gates is likely to end up enfeebled by some disease or drug pretty quickly, not quite like Howard Hughes but that’s the idea.

    Successes with Cold Fusion have been well reported for the last 25 years, and besides Rossi others have figured out how to reproduce it at will. SRI was reproducing it decades ago.

    Gates looks to be backing “new clean” conventional nuclear power, well investing in the competition is of course a tried and true method of making sure that competitor doesn’t get real far.

    Gates has already tried his hand at destroying public education in the US. And he’s sure backed the more drugs (medicines) for Africa “solution”. I guess he’s backed clean water, so that’s a real help. I

    It could work, but it’s likely a distraction.

    Am far more interested in what SAIC was doing for the last 25 years.

  14. old97polarcat on January 8, 2015 at 7:27 am

    My guess is Gates sees the clear potential of Rossi’s work and is looking for a workaround. By that I man, he develops the process Rossi worked out but in a way that is different enough technically to allow him to get patents for his own technology.
