Jean-Francois Geneste, author of this philosophical paper is a scientist and engineer, and a regular regular attendee at cold fusion conferences.
The implications of considering so-called “elementary” or “fundamental” particles . Jean-François Geneste…
A few thoughts;
Obviously the particle model is useful as far as it goes and not useful in other circumstances, hence the move to quantum field theory.
The journey of reductive science has spanned from our complex everyday world of biology to the more…
Arpa E seems to be quick-footed and open-minded!
I like that! To better understand what Arpa E wants to do, watch this.
ARPA-E funds high-risk energy projects.

ZenoOfElea Reacted with to JedRothwell’s post in the thread Media/News/Video Library-No discussions please.My response to their bullshit:
You people need to review the literature more carefully before commenting on this subject. Cold fusion was replicated in over 180 major laboratories such as Los Alamos, China Lake, and BARC. These replications were published…
(Quote from me356)
You & Allen should let me know if you need more meshes. I understand that they are sometimes ruined. Experiments are done slightly wrong, leaving the mesh "used up." It is a trial-and-error experiment.
Nobody else was interested in testing the meshes so there is not much new unfortunately.
Alan made some important changes to the reactor recently that will add much higher probability for success. I still have to insist it would be even better to…
I rebuilt my reactor, now with an internal heater and some exterior insulation. Initial calibration went well, though some further testing is needed before adding the treated meshes sent by me356. Here's my live doc showing some build details and the…
ZenoOfElea Reacted with to Alan Smith’s post in the thread LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies..At least four studies published this year say hydrogen loses its environmental edge when it seeps into the atmosphere. This is because it reduces the concentration of molecules that destroy the greenhouse gases already there, potentially contributing to…
(Quote from orsova)
"Fast forward 25 years, and thaw is in the air.
You won’t hear the words “cold fusion”, but substantial sums of money are quietly pouring into a field now known as low-energy nuclear reactions, or LENRs.
(Quote from THHuxleynew)
Maybe at one time they could dismiss LENR as scientific lacunae, but the game has changed. Now the DOE (via their ARPA-E) is involved with their "Partnering Teams", with funding to be provided those selected. That alone provides a…
Getting useful PR is very difficult, so hats off to whatever PR agency they are using. A week ago I write to Chris Simms a journalist working for New Scientist in response to his appeal for scientific articles. I told him about the LEC, a novel…

ZenoOfElea Reacted with to Alan Smith’s post in the thread LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies..With the best permag DC motors running at 95%+ efficiency and 3 phase motors achieving much the same, his efforts are commendable, but the story itself is just click-bait.
ZenoOfElea Reacted with to Frogfall’s post in the thread LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies..(Quote from Shane D.)
Version of the story in the Smithsonian mag is a bit more comprehensive.
So the performance increase isn't actually against a conventional SRM of a comparable size, but…
ZenoOfElea Reacted with to stefan’s post in the thread LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies..I got my small electric car now, takes me about 200km on a full charge in normal winter conditions (around 0) with no pre heating. And I use the old diesel car for
trips where this form factor is less optimal. I love it, just love it. I'm reducing fuel…

They may stop selling them in 2030, but people will not stop using them. There are millions on the road. The average automobile lasts 11 years. So there will still be many in 2040, and they will need parts, service, mechanics and…

You are probably right. Main problem facing the UK is that we don't have the infrastructure to support an all-electric fleet, and not much is being done about that. For example, I live on a group of around 100 houses mostly built…
ZenoOfElea Reacted with to Rjzk’s post in the thread LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies..One step further in the case of big marine engines is ammonia (Wind-power -> hydrogen -> ammonia).
There's an EU-project going on; Ammonia 2-4.
