COLD FUSION RACE HEATING UP?

Here's one that is happening almost as fast as the predictions that it would happen. Mr. S.D., a regular reader and contributor of articles here, found this one, and it is one of those articles that as much is being said between the lines as in the lines:

The Cold Fusion Race Just Heated Up

Now there's a hugely important point to notice in this article, and that is that the Russians have apparently successfully duplicated Dr. Andrea Rossi's cold fusion E-CAT reactor, and though the results are more modest than his claims, nonetheless with significant results. Referencing the report of the Universities of Uppsala and Bologna last year, and their conclusion that Rossi's device is indeed producing low energy nuclear reactions, the so-called Lugano Report, about which we blogged last year, and about which there has been considerable controversy, the article notes,

"The report was promptly savaged by sceptics, pointing out that Rossi was present for the test and questioning how independent it was. Steven B. Krivit, editor of New Energy Times, headlined his account  "Rossi Handles Samples in Alleged Independent Test of His Device".

"The arguments about the Lugano Report continue, meanwhile there has been an even more surprising development. Prof Alexander Parkhomov of Lomonosov Moscow State University has published a paper describing his successful replication of the E-Cat, based on the available information about it. The paper is in Russian; there is a link and commentary and video in English on E-Cat World. Parkhomov's results are more modest, but the energy output of his cloned E-Cat claimed to be up to 2.74 times as great as the input.

"Parkhomov presented his results earlier this week at a cold fusion seminar at the Research Institute for Nuclear Power Plant Operation in Moscow."

In other words, the Russians are in the cold fusion game and in a major way, and given the context of this week's "space focus" in our blogs, this again provides an interesting context on just what appears to be going on. The pattern we have seen in the past few months of last year, and continuing into this year and perhaps - depending on one's perceptions - even intensifying, is (1) there seems to be a push underway to give attention to stories involving space, and in particular revelations or talk of some cutting edge technology in that respect, and (2) there is also, at the same time, a push underway to give attention to stories involving alternative energy technologies, in this case, Rossi's E-CAT cold fusion reactor (or, let us recall, Lockheed-Martin's curious cold-fusion story that was disclosed mere days after the release of the Lugano Report, a story that, you'll recall, pictured a device looking suspiciously like Philo Farnsworth's plasmator and fusor patents of the 1960s). In the context of the second aspect of this pattern, you'll recall that last year also saw the announcement that the Rockefeller Foundations were divesting themselves of petroleum securities in their portfolios.

Even more curious in this article is its mention of yet another strange conspiracy theory in connection to cold fusion:

"None of this is likely to bother sceptics in the global energy market, though there are signs of panic among conspiracy theorists. Russian media has repeated a rumour that President Obama discussed Chinese E-Cat production under licence with Xi Jinping in his recent visit, a move that might destroy Russia's vital energy exports." (Emphasis added)

Given the rather close connection between "Russian media" and the Russian government itself, one wonders just how reliable the rumor is. But let's assume, for the sake of argument, that the rumor is true. President Obama would not be in any position to offer a license to Xi Jinping or the Chinese government for the E-Cat process. It is not his process to offer, and, as the article indicates, Parkhamov's process is already open. So what might the truth, if any, be behind the rumor? Again, for the sake of argument, for Obama to offer any such thing to the Chinese would, on the face of it, make no geopolitical sense, since his administration is "pivoting to the Pacific" precisely to counteract growing Chinese power and influence in the region. But again, assume for the sake of argument that the rumor is true and that he made some sort of cold fusion offer to the Chinese government. He could only offer what the USA has some degree of control over, and that brings to mind once again the Lockheed-Martin cold fusion claims that appeared shortly after the Lugano Report's release.

Whether true or not (and I am strongly inclined to believe it isn't) the rumor nevertheless suggests - when added to the Rockefeller announcement of last year, and the emerging strange pattern of space-and-alternative-energy technology stories that seem to be on the uptake - that one thing that we are perhaps looking at is a new geopolitical game emerging, one involving space, its commercialization, and technologies that are, for the moment, and in the public venue at least, still the stuff of science fiction. But I strongly suspect, like the article itself indicates, that we're going to see not only more E-CAT stories this year, but also that we will see that pattern dramatically expand. When and if if does, we'll have more dots to connect.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Did I read that right that Obama “offered” something to China, a lunatic would, a smart politician would not. New energy systems will not be seen for a very long time, just ask BP, or Shell. Electricity has been around for a long time and employs thousands of workers worldwide, so peoples, what we are seeing is more ink, and electricity will survive, even if the new technology is “released”.

    1. They’ll try and cap off the outputs, I agree. Or possibly a staged terror attack on one of the facilities, using scalar weapons to make a big boom. Then they start with the “this tech isn’t ready for market, it needs to be made safer” bullshit. It will upset the structure too much for them to let it be released.

  2. The real problem is that the resource wars have to a great extent been covers for their real targets. The mass murder-genocide of the threats and enemies of our oligarchs the indigenous and non hierarchical minded elements in societies within the empire and worldwide. Fleischmann and Pons patented their discoveries which made it hard to duplicate their work by other researchers. Andres Rossi has keep his own research vague to also protect his work from being stolen or suppressed. With all the black projects of the US government who knows what Obama has up his sleeve that he thinks he can offer to China to nix a China-Russia technology alliance.

      Of course, Obama is the puppet face, behind which the puppet masters, are pulling the strings of power – through deception.

      It hasn’t been particularly hard to repeat the general results of Fleischmann and Pons’ work.

      It’s been going on for 25 years now. Patents haven’t particularly gotten in the way. Though there’s been no big push for commercialization yet.

      I think you have point that free energy allows for different organizing principles than we are told are possible today.

      Governments of the people, religion that deals with spiritual matters and improves them instead of degrading them Interactions of mankind and nature that benefit both in positive ways, etc.

    Remember the Beta versus the VHS?
    Now will the “Cold Fusion” technology develop into a similar battle?
    I’ve been writing about “infrastructure space” here at times. It is an updating platform unfolding in time to handle new circumstances, encoding the relationship between buildings[Fusion Centers], or dictating logistics[specifications]. There are object forms like building, and active forms like bits of code in software that organizes biuldings. INFORMATION SResides in the, Often UNDECLARED, Activities of this software – the propocols, routines, scedules, and choices it manifests in space.
    Some of the MOST Important RaADICAL changes to the globalizing world are being written, not in the language of law and diplomacy, but in infrastructure space,

  4. So, if Cold Fusion is out of the bag, that means the MIC is running on tech at least 50 years ahead. Something to ponder.. Cold Fusion is at least 20 years old if not older. It will be very interesting to see how much of the “Jinni” they allow out of the bottle.

    1. I will be very interested to see if any of this new tech sets fire to a new tech bubble. With HFT and Naked Shorting perfected, there exists the possiblity of multiple harvests during a new bull market. Where a sustained, prolonged skim will be unoticed by the general public.

  5. It’s more than the Rockefeller Foundations divesting from hydrocarbon energy; it’s the Rockefeller family trusts.

  6. Good point there polekat,Russia and China will develope this new technology with or without washingtons permission and perhaps this Ukrainian crisis is a product of both sides of the conflict with Russia wanting to distance itself and its new found commercial alliances from the trade barriers and claims of intellectual properties that the west will roll out on any new game changing energy source that they have been trying to keep a secret.

  7. Cold fusion is coming out of the closet because the US’s shale oil “miracle” is simply a flash in the pan and the collapse of the price of oil will destroy that ill-advised and expensive foray but leave Russia and the Saudis standing, with greater control of the market after the price stabilizes. (And there is every indication that the price of oil will remain depressed for several years, with many analysts seeing oil finally hitting rock bottom in the $20s before rebounding. If that happens, US shale oil production will be devastated)

    Gepolitically, the US empire is too bankrupt and exhausted to continue to wage war for oil, and I think the calculus is to let LENR out of the closet to undermine Russi and the Arab oil states in the longer term. Though it throws the Seven sisters under the bus, it ultimately strenghtens the US by weakening adversaries–and I think the bonus in the calculus is the grudging recognition that we can’t keep raping the planet for oil profits forever, and the tech was leaking out anyway so why not make lemons from lemonade.

    1. But all sorts of parties from various countries have been doing repeatable cold fusion work for years.

      Rossi’s work is encouraging, and dramatic, and may have finally prompted other parties to take some of the repeatable work of the last 25 years to a more developed level. And those parties certainly aren’t limited to Russia.

  8. Hmm. If a breakaway elite can commercialize and weaponize space, what need is there to prolong the farce that is a petroleum-based world economy? Might it be possible that the elites see that the oil-game is about done, and everyone is trying to wring what diminishing rewards are left to exploit (by that I mean Ukraine).

    If commercial LENR breaks out, it will break out in Russia. And what if that is Putin’s big stick, his poison pill, the ability to roll out a commercial LENR device that renders the entire energy-based paradigm moot?
