Ok Jed, once again you argue that cold fusion is well-understood and reproducible and the only problem is that nobody is allowed to do it, or at least nobody is interested.
So suppose they put you in charge of the planet. What would you have done, how long would it take to do, and what results would you expect?
I would fund fusion experiments according to the number of Joules produced per experiment. The latest hot fusion experiment generated about 6 Megajoules, so I'd give them proportionally 6Mega$ . Typical cold fusion experiments generate 3 or 400 Megajoules so I'd be giving them $3-400Mega$. That would settle things pretty fast.
