Is The U.S. Promoting Cold Fusion?

The newly reelected president of the United States, Barack Obama, signed yet another executive order in August of this year. Unlike other attempts he has made to circumvent the democratic processes of the U.S., this one may actually help the country. This executive order binds the government to a commitment to producing and implementing CHP, or Combined Heat and Power. There are a number of engines on the market today that convert heat to electricity, and this falls right into line with the functions of Andrea Rossi’s work with the E-Cat and Hot Cat.

In his order, Obama orders industrial facilities to develop a way to generate their own power, including heat and electricity.  This is a sweeping decree, considering that without an E-Cat, such an accomplishment will be nearly impossible. He states his goal as 40 gigawatts of energy created by industries, so that they can support themselves. This is a small fraction of the nearly 1,200 gigawatts produced nationwide, but still represents a huge step forward in alternative energies. One gigawatt is equivalent to 1 billion watts.

Obama has typically been more interested in green energies, such as the failed Solyndra. He also, however, withdrew funding from NASA which had done quite a bit of work in LENR, and produced research that supported its existence. However, he has apparently been listening to someone, whether it’s NASA, the Energy Department of the U.S., or the Defense Intelligence Agency. All of these have put out reports that LENR does, indeed exist. Possibly he has also been informed of the successes of Andrea Rossi, with his Hot Cat and the industrial E-Cat now being marketed. It is rumored that the U.S. Navy was actually the customer of the first sale of an industrial unit. Other advances in LENR recently have included Francesco Celani and Brillouin.

While an executive order can be challenged and repealed in congress, it is unlikely that they would eliminate this order in its entirety. The biggest problem with it is that industry in the U.S. has already taken many losses over the last 4 years, and becoming self-sufficient in energy production could be far too expensive, unless they accept LENR. While a large part of the populace sees this order as another volley in Obama’s war on coal, those same people realize that the U.S. needs to move into alternative sources of energy in order to maintain or regain its independence from foreign oil and economic influences.

The long and the short of it is that Obama’s order can be good for LENR, and therefore, for Andrea Rossi. It provides even more motivation to American industry to seek independence from the power grid, possibly through investing in the Hot Cat.

  1. I already signed up for 1000 home units. I have no doubt they will be easy to sell and I will need many more. Hope they will deliver.

  2. “Unlike other attempts he has made to circumvent the democratic processes…”
    “Obama is more interested in green energies, such as the failed Solyndra.” “populace sees this order as another volley in Obama’s war on coal”

    The election is over and it’s time to STOP twisting the facts to discredit our first black president. Do you REALLY BELIEVE our president is actively “trying to subvert the democratic process? Was Solyndra a failed scheme of Obama’s or China subsidizing their solar industries to the detriment of US manufacturers? The coal industries should NOT be our source of energy if we can use cleaner energy.

    Let’s unite and make our world a better and safer placed for all people. A first step could be to help support and promote CF/LENR development. jdh

    • This is not an article against Obama. On the contrary, it’s an opinion piece on LENR developments in US with an overview of current affairs regarding Cold Fusion and LENR.

      Of course politics are involved, regardless of who’s the president.

      “The long and the short of it is that Obama’s order can be good for LENR, and therefore, for Andrea Rossi. It provides even more motivation to American industry to seek independence from the power grid, possibly through investing in the Hot Cat.”

      And we should be all seeking a better and safer place for all people.

  3. While (in my opinion), decentralization in the short run in terms of households removing themselves from the power grid with (LENR) portable electrical generators is a bad thing for reasons of destabilization and social cohesion, the CHP executive order appears to be aimed at first removing industrial facilities from the power grid.

    As Hurricane Sandy showed, natural disasters (and man made ones too) can disrupt the power grid, leading to widespread misery and economic chaos, a top national security agenda ought to be making power generation as durable as the world wide web. As goes decentralized industrial power production now, so goes domestic power production later.

    Thank you President Obama, that was a far sighted executive order. Soon Rossi and company will be manufacturing and distributing 1 megawatt LENR generators, and you’ve paved the way for their market introduction and utilization by industrial facilities.

  4. Science.gov – LENR, NASA, the DIA, SPAWAR, the American Nuclear Society, the American Physical Society, Boeing, General Electric, National Instruments, Purdue, MIT, Stanford, and many other U.S. organizations, companies, and institutions ar e engaged in the race to understand and engineer advanced LENR devices.

    The recent plethora of U.S. LENR information creates a foundation for the entry of LENR into the “mainstream”… it is not hard to imagine the attraction LENR holds for President Obama, or any world leader seeking accolades.

    Will Obama go for the glory with his inaugural address?

    The stage is set for cold fusion now.

    “Even though we do not know the specific cost of the LENR itself, we assumed a cost of jet fuel at $4/gallon and weight based aircraft cost. We were able to calculate cost per mile for the LENR equipped aircraft compared to a conventional aircraft (Figure 3.2). Looking at the plots, one could select a point where the projected cost per mile is 33% less than a conventionally powered aircraft.”

  5. Very interesting POV Greg. Some of the odd timing we’re seeing now would indicate a large element of back channel movement. There are some indications that the President will make a joint announcement with Navy re new energy technology.
