    I have very little time for guys making weird claims (like Rife) without good evidence. They are usually (as Rife) misrepresenting evidence. The trouble is that the press (and people in general) like "I've discovered something…

    It is a VC company investing in LENR research and IP with the long-term aim of achieving (and having some IP interest in) commercial LENR. This aim is largely charitable, from the view that alternate power generation…

    SOT - as you know I am a skeptic and enough so that I'm not flavour of the month here.

    What you say about IH (a stance that makes them predisposed to see merit in long-odds LENR) is no doubt true. That is their mission. How…

    In any case, availability of high quality charge points is a matter of EV volume, just as EV volume depends on high quality available charge points.

    Government will and this feedback loop can be switched by incentives.…

    As Alan says, veganism and EVs are fashionable, and a whole generation could end up viewing meat-eating or gas-guzzler driving as socially reprehensible - whether you approve of that or no.

    Look what can be done using a…

    Agreed - FF combustion - or waste heat from nuclear or other power stations - is not that significant in the earth energy balance

    SOT - while that may well be true - the whole point of early-stage VCs is that the value represents whether another investor has been persuaded to buy in at a higher rate. That represents at very least a good story - though…

    Or use HTS magnets like the smart guys are doing, and a stellerator design, much smaller with a route to commercial fusion by 2030:

    Sure, this is optimistic. But who here is against optimism?

    Field here is quoted as up to 3E9V/m. That is a static field of course - and at this field (static) electrons can be captured from approaching atoms and ions ejected!

    So the 1E12 fields needed to make lattice ions approach each other in plasma…

    Ahlfors

    I ignore the patents. They are fishing, and have no scientific validity.

    Looks a better (and more recent) overview of d+d shielding.

    Here is one of the more interesting follow-ups of the 2003 speculation (open):

    Has some obvious holes; like the needed 100% down shifting of Mev energies into lattice phonons for the hypothesised…

    Ok re those papers and the patent, I see what you mean now, here are comments:

    (1) Key idea - SPP can increase local electron charge density and therefore shielding in metal lattices.

    This is a plausible idea - it is a mechanism for…

    Re these two Alhfors papers #311, #312

    Both seem good and expected conventional physics, yet more evidence of standard model + qm being highly predictive. Not sure you even need qed for the plasmonics paper, but anyway it is expected, and the…

    I agree, which makes my point that writing stuff up is needed to understand it!

    Agreed - and string theory now would be like that. But in that case there are a whole load of people who can understand and critique it - just they need all to be specialists who have learnt a lot of maths.

    RFI is pernicious and the problem, as Alan says, is that you do not know there is any problem and it requires care to identify this.

    RF issues affect instrumentation most likely by coming in on sensor leads and…

    inscrutable scientific approach

    That is a contradiction! In fact inscrutable => not scientific

    Some academics do not believe this, thinking that if no-one can understand your work except you - therefore it proves you are brilliant.

    Unfortunately in…

    I have not noticed these qualities applied to any engineering he has shown: it has always been shoddy: badly presented with analysis which is just wrong. That makes him about the worst person actually to exploit some Holy Grail…

    Good to see this fascinating additional experimental work casting light on electron screening in lattices. That is one of the more plausible ways in which LENR might be encouraged to happen. Sure, D+D is neutronic, but at low rates, with the effect only…

    Actually, knowing Russ George, I doubt they will ever disclose anything. But I am not complaining either. As far as I know, experiments that were never reported in detail, but only in snippets and hints like this one, all…
