It is now approaching nearly a year for the commercial test of Dr. Andrea Rossi's E-CAT low energy nuclear "cold fusion" reactor, and the tests appear to have been successful, according to this very important article shared by Mr. K.H.:
There's much to absorb in this article, but there are two things in particular that caught my eye, and I hope yours too, for if they are true, then we are indeed on the verge of an energy revolution, one that, in the long term, will remake the financial and geopolitical world. Here's the first one:
Earlier, some sources having visited the test plant told me that the COP, Coefficient of Performance, i.e. the ratio between output power and input power for control, was in the range 20—80, meaning that the heat plant was consuming 12—50 kW while producing 1 MW—the average consumption of about 300 Western households, including electricity, space heating, water heating and air conditioning.
I have also been told that the total amount of fuel—mostly harmless elements such as lithium, hydrogen and nickel, according to Andrea Rossi’s granted patent on the technology—was in the range of tenths of grams. And supposedly the charge has never been changed during the year. On the other hand, after one year’s run, the reactors are now being recharged for further operation. (Italics-bold emphasis added, bold emphasis in the original)
I'd give my eye teeth for people to quit talking about "over unity" and "free energy" and to start talking about the COP or coefficient of performance, for this is indeed the significant thing, and hear the implications are clear, for the ratio of input to output power is staggering, and as the article notes, this one truck-trailer-sized reactor is producing clean cheap energy for a few grams of common materials for about three hundred average Western households.
Let's stop and consider the ramifications of this technology for poorer regions of the world that are without realiable power. Without reliable power, it becomes impossible to have good agriculture, reliable sewers, a decent water system, or manufacture. In other words, this technology could provide a key means for poorer nations to help their people, without falling prey to "economic hit men" and expensive loans from the financially predatory Anglosphere. The real question for the developers of this technology is how to keep it from falling prey to that class. We'll get back to that in a moment.
Then there occurs a statement which, to my mind, indicates that we may indeed be looking at a reliable story, and that's this statement:
"The test has been undertaken by Andrea Rossi and his US industrial partner Industrial Heat, and according to Rossi, commercialisation of similar industrial heat plants will be initiated as soon as possible, provided that the result is positive. Industrial Heat has acquired the right to produce and sell E-Cat based technology in, as far as I have been told, North, Central and South America, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates."(All emphases added)
Obviously, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have a keen interest in such technologies, for ultimately, they spell the end of the age of oil, and the end of their wealth and power, and more importantly, their need to diversify the basis of their economies and national infrastructures. Their interest in this technology makes eminent sense, from their point of view, and signals that indeed the technology is viable.
Which brings us to the other nations in the list: South America - by which we can understand the two big South American powers, Argentina and Brazil - China, and Russia. In short, we're only two nations shy of the BRICSA block, for only South Africa and India are not mentioned in the list. I strongly suspect that this is an indicator that Dr. Rossi, and whomever may be advising him, have wisely dispersed their technology and tests precisely in order to avoid any attempt by the financial parasites of the Anglosphere from gaining a monopoly over it, and suppressing it. Granted, Russia, which is a large hydrocarbons energy supplier in its own right, has much to lose, perhaps as much as Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, but only over the short term. Russian and Chinese engineers could be - and I suspect already are - trying to make the technology more efficient. In the long term, neither Russia nor China have anything to gain by a perpetuation of the hydrocarbon era.
We're not quite there yet, of course, but the test - and the various nations which are interested in the technology - are key indicators that whether we wish to admit it or not, we are entering the age of the decline of oil. It will be slow, it will be gradual, but it has begun. One need only imagine a landscape dotted occasionally not with large electrical power plants and substations, but rather, small plants more dispersed around the landscape.
See you on the flip side...
