Colleges and universities are bleeding students in the US, I believe. I teach lower-division math at a California University and they are losing half-a-dozen or so students a week out of the dorms. They are returning home and not signing up for next semester. It turns out that college isn't as attractive if there is no social life. No activities, no parties, masks, social distancing, does not contribute to the college experience that students want. There are a lot of lab-based science classes which are filled; and they meet in person. But classes that don't need a lab, or don't need to meet in person, are all online, like the math classes I am teaching. This is not just my school, but other schools too. Students want the experience of college classes and social life, and online courses aren't doing that. Not only will unemployment be high in US over the next year, but students won't be in school either.

I THANK YOU for your reviews, gentlemen. I am psyched about this project actually being completed, finally! I wish it wasn't happening while I'm teaching my guts out during Covid USA fall semester! Thank you too for the promotional words, and talking this up. I will update the site DiscoverColdFusion.com with some quotes and the links to E-cat World.
Re- scheduled comic release party on Lucky Friday Nov 13 2020. 12Noon Pacific. organization commencing this week. I would like to invite some special guests to discuss the pages 5-8 and how the science has been portrayed in that part. Pages 5-7 are in the flyer the publisher made. And also how the University affiliates were portrayed, realistic? or more realistic because of being in a cartoony explicit exaggeration of the truth?
Sadly, there is ERRATA inside cover lackluster.ORG https://www.lackluster.org/ oi, my mistake, I made that page.
Thanks for posting this new link. I got a positive quote for the DiscoverColdFusion website.
THANK YOU Bob.
Here's a review done by Bob Greenyer:
Woah, I did not see that Curbina! I am super-jammed teaching right now and missing so much. I will check it out. THANK YOU for getting Bob a copy. I am still waiting on the ten copies I get and will be sending them out ASAP. I am going to check this video out right after classes today! I am online in class right now - got to go!
REMEMBER new date for comic book release party FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13 @12Noon Pacific!
OH wow, I am so psyched the copies are getting out there! THANK YOU. MERCI. DANKE. GRACIAS. it is just awesome.
I have had to cancel the "party" this weekend. There is no comic book release party this Saturday. It is re-scheduled for Lucky Friday November 13. There are still people waiting to get a copy, and I am still waiting for my ten complimentary copies which I need to send out with some invitations.
so this gives us more time to get our scripts.
NEW DATE FOR COMIC BOOK RELEASE PARTY is FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13 at 12Noon Pacific (Left Coast US).
I am swamped with teaching duties. I spent 11 hours grading "papers" on Saturday for another fellow whose class I took over.
More on the comic party later. I want to put a good round table together for discussion on presenting and representing this history.
Back to class now..... New LENR-forum format...NICE.
Woo hoo Alan they look GREAT! I can't wait to get my ten-pack. Matt's art is tremendous. THANK YOU

A review of Planet of the Humans https://www.adbusters.org/article/co-opted-by-capitalism
The environmental movement now finds itself a half-century beyond the first Earth Day, and nearly 60 years past the publication of Silent Spring. Has it lost its way? Are its long-cherished institutions bound too closely to the incentives of capitalism? It may have. It may be. But neither conclusion can be drawn from Planet of the Humans without the taint of untruth. In any case, a new generation of climate activists has already emerged. And its members — supporters of the likes of XR, Thunberg, and the Sunrise Movement — don’t buy the illusion that renewables alone, without a broad reconsideration of the political-economic status quo, can save humanity from the worst effects of climate change. “Decades of institutional failure ensures that only ‘unrealistic’ proposals … now have a realistic chance of stopping the planetary death spiral,” writes journalist George Monbiot. “And only those who stand outside the failed institutions,” like XR’s self-styled rebels, “can lead this effort.” At the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit, Thunberg inveighed against world leaders: “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” The Sunrise Movement, in its own words, is “building an army of young people to break the hold of oil and gas CEOs on our politics and elect leaders who will protect the health and wellbeing of all people, not just a wealthy few.” Irrespective of Planet of the Humans, a new wave of environmentalists has already arrived, and its young proponents have no hang-ups about getting political. Why should they? After all, they were born into a world in flames. And unlike some of their benumbed elders, they can feel the heat.
But when will we feel LENR heat???????
Now I know I have to load USD 70 in my paypal to be on the safe side and we are good to go for the three copies. Paypal works in Chile only through an intermediary, but I have not held a Credit Card since 2007, and don't intend to for the foreseeable future (long story).
Wow Curbina, That's a sacrifice for three comic book gifts. However you've got the best gifts in the world for your pals.
THANK YOU. I am so grateful to you.
UK to UK postage charges were very reasonable -Around $6.00 total to post me 10 copies, and the good news is that they just sent me a notification that they are on their way.
Shipping goes down the more you purchase.
One person who purchased one comic book to be mailed to northern California paid ~ $22 US for the one comic. That's high. But I believe that when he gets this amazing piece of Art, it will be worth it!
Cubina, I am not sure about the shipping differences. I know someone who ordered 1 copy to send to California on the west coast of the US and the whole things was $22. The shipping is more than the comic. I imagine that it is cheaper in Europe, only because it is way closer to the U.K. than the US.
I think you will have to send the publisher a separate note about the shipping to different locales. I am not at all sure on how that works. I would first contact the publisher about how to do what you want. Here is a contact form. See what they say, and find out how you can go about that. https://www.curtis-press.com/contact-us/
If you are unsuccessful in contacting them, I will send an email too, and what's up.
Well, I got the two comic books I ordered - so it only took a week! - and I ordered 10 more to send out. I just emailed the publisher and he will be sending me 10 complimentary comic books to send out, as well. I had hoped he sent them already. So I will have 20 to mail out!
If I will receive a couple hundred dollars for this, it looks like I'll be spending the whole nut on comics!
It's for Art, Glory and a better future for all remaining life on Earth.
THANK YOU for supporting this effort, and for all you are doing in your work, too.
Yes, we are re-writing history, only to reflect a truer picture of why LENR scientists and the people who need a new energy technology are still struggling today.
Virtual Comic Book release party Lucky Friday November 13 at 12NOON Pacific!!!
Details on the platform to connect on to come.
That's a little early for me to be imbibing, but it will be evening in Europe and, sadly, 4AM in Tokyo.
World Time Buddy https://www.worldtimebuddy.com…date=2020-10-17&sln=20-21
Copies of the comic book have shipped and are in the mail now! I get 10 copies complimentary for being the author and I ordered 2 more cause I got so many I want to send out. I'm so psyched to have something fun to advocate with. I will send JPBiberian one to send to Stanley Pons. I sure hope he likes it.
I was asked about the digital version and I know there will be a digital version coming out sometime late in 2020 or early 2021 - I am not sure exactly. I had told the publisher I wanted hardcopies first. Give me those atoms to hold on to please! But then again I am a bibliophile from way back.
The hardcopy is a little pricey, shipping from the U.K. is a big chunk of the cost, but this cover art by Matt Howart is gorgeous, and is laminated too, so a little more durable and brighter than a normal comic. It's suitable for framing!
When you get it - post your review here. I can't wait!!!
The remarkable thing about this talk is the summary of effects: tritium, helium, the correlation of heat and helium, transmutations, biological transmutations, all conducted repeatedly by reputable industry and academic institutions, (excepting the Les Case example, which was then confirmed by an institutional lab) with all of these resources compiled by a former US National Lab scientist.
It sure is true that facts don't matter.
I have decided to have virtual comic book release party!
I'll schedule it in and post details here after they start shipping and I receive my copy. I don't know if I can get the artist Matt Howarth to join in - he's a bit of a technophobe - but I want to hear your thoughts and critiques personally. Meet me online and let's chat!
I'll be drinking some bubbly so it won't hurt at all.
Here's a post on E-CatWorld: https://e-catworld.com/2020/09…by-carat-and-matt-howath/
They are a small publisher, basically, a two-person operation. Nevertheless, they have a unique library of taste. I am glad they found us.
The talk by Edmund Storms at COFE provides a comprehensive overview of the experimental results over thirty years. If you want to know what is known about cold fusion/LENR, this talk will do it:
Well, you didn't ask for it - but we made it anyway! The story of cold fusion in graphic form is now available for order from the U.K. publisher Curtis-Press Publisher of Science. https://www.curtis-press.com/ You can order a copy now and they ship out Sept. 21.
The Limited Print Edition has a laminated cover, so it's a little more sturdy than your average comic book, but the 32-pages of B&W art with color cover provide a true-to-life portrait of two chemists who created a whole new field of science. Artist Matt Howarth did an amazing job of capturing our heroes as they make their discovery and deal with the consequences. It is sold in the U.K. at British pounds. Here's a currency converter to help figure the cost. https://www.xe.com/
Attached to this post is a short .pdf with the comic book cover and a couple sample pages. These sample pages are the most "sciency" that it gets, and there is much of the drama that ensued after the news conference. There are cameos from the whole community of scientists who were first to try to replicate the experiment, though all the characters are more Icon than Individual. Sources for the text are listed on the informational website https://www.discovercoldfusion.com/. LENR-forum gets a shout-out in the inside back cover with an invitation to readers to visit and chat, too.
If you are able, please buy extra copies and give them to your friends, family, and neighbors. Drop one at the dentist office. Mail one to your governing representatives. Drop one at the Boys and Girls Club, the high school science department, the college quad. People will pick it up and check it out for the artwork alone, and get a dose of new science and history along with it.
Mike McKubre and Mel Miles consulted and gave lots of suggestions. However, all the story decisions made were mine and the artist's. Any flaws are my own.
This thread is open for your critique and I can't wait to hear what you think. I know that nobody holds back here!
It was just a year ago this month that I was able to debut this project at ICCF-22 thanks to LENR-forum. I am so grateful to have had that opportunity to get feedback from the cmns community on this. I took suggestions and acted on many of them. THANK YOU to everyone who made that trip possible.
With all that is going wrong in this world, I'm glad to offer something fun to hang our hope on.
Here's a banner to share on your website and post around:

I do not watch/listen to youtube most of the time flatulence videos. I like to read a few sentences about its content.

I will take anything that is better for sure!
It's just using accelerators is not low-energy. But through this materials research they will hopefully find a hydrogen-loaded material that will activate as needed.
So much basic science needs to be figured out. I am too anxious and impatient for a technology.
