LENR demonstrated at Austin Trade Show 5

Renewables, man, get something for nothing. Harness the infinite power of wind, water, wave and tide. Why hasn’t it been done before? But of course it has – two thousand years ago – and has yet to overcome three basic and insurmountable problems”: intermittent, depends on locally weak, dispersed sources of energy, and no viable […]

Cold Fusion, in Walmart Soon. 8

To some, the Rossi E-Cat device has come out of nowhere, perhaps fueling the skepticism. This article in the Nebraska Engineer (blog) lists a number of competitors that may soon have marketable applications. These include 1. Andre Rossi, who is keeping ahead of the pack by promising an electricity generator within a year. 2. Defkalion […]

Rossi’s E-Cat: A Black Swan Event? 12

Interest in cold fusion among the establishment science has always been lukewarm, to say the least. Nobel-winning physicist Brian Josephson left a comment about Rossi’s test on Nature Magazine’s Seven days: 21–27 October 2011, that failed to report on the 1MW E-Cat test (on the 28th). The real news is happening today in Bologna, where […]

1MW Test of E-Cat Today 8

Some links of interest for following the test of Rossi’s 1MW cold fusion reactor. Daniele Passerini twitter feed (in Italian). Google Reader will translate it for you. He just claimed that Associated Press has the exclusive rights to the test today, so this one will get coverage. Peswiki updates. I will add more links as […]

No Longer any Justification for a Carbon Tax 27

The main justification for a Carbon Tax has been that it is necessary in order to make lower-carbon technologies competitive with coal and gas. However, recent persuasive demonstrations of copious energy generation from a new technology based on a non-carbon nickel/hydrogen system show just how wrong this assumption is. A significant announcement today from Defkalion, […]

Rossi NyTeknik Report 4

The NyTeknik Rossi report, translated to English. As in previous tests, the start-up was effected by heating the E-cat with an electrical resistor at about 2.7 kilowatts, this time for about four hours, in order to achieve, according to Rossi, sufficient stability. The power to the resistor was then switched off, and the reactor functioned […]


Sweet Thursday for Rossi Followers 10

Initial reports of the ongoing test of Rossi’s ECat in Italy are positive. The 1MW unit was also on display. Having followed this story from the beginning, maintaining The Future is not Green, but Grey I congratulate Mr Rossi and all involved. Lets see, some likely, and not so likely, predictions: There will be a […]

Reactor Self Sufficiency 4

Staying up following the twitter feed of Rossi’s event here by Daniele Passerini ( Its in Italian, but if you subscribe in Google Reader, it will be translated. 10:08pm 22passi: Reactor self-sufficiency! More info: Wired is first:

Renewable Energy 8

Which is better for the environment: renewable energies, oil, gas, coal or nuclear energy? The environmental damage caused by energy sources can be measured by their ‘footprint’ — the area required to produce a specific amount of energy. An article in Forbes lists the energy produced per unit area of major energy sources, from which […]
