The wind of change is now blowing. Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat will be among the beneficiaries of this change. With the 2012 US election only a couple of months from now, political candidates and their board of advisers are now busy putting up their list of promises to give to the electoral public in the hope of getting elected.
All political candidates want to offer solutions to the pressing problems of the country. And without dispute, economic depression and the increasing price of energy are among the major problems besetting the United States now.
It was very timely for Andrea Rossi to go public with his ECat research and launch his 1 MW E-Cat plant before the 2012 election in the United States. Now the politicians will be forced to take a stand on cold fusion technology. The government of the United States should have appropriated funding to put out for fusion research, in its effort to find alternative and efficient sources of energy.
As LENR technology, on the other hand, has shown significant progress with the launching of Andrea Rossi’s 1 MW E-Cat plant, its potential is too huge to stay unexplored and unexploited by lobbyists and politicians in their campaigns.
By summer of 2012, Andrea Rossi’s invention should also have a solid scientific framework to explain his machine and reactions inside the catalyst, making it an inevitable subject in the campaign programs of political candidates. They have no choice but to consider it.
The increasing price of energy has been a major factor in the economic decline of the US economy. It is also the primary consideration in the country’s international policies in relation to Middle Eastern region, which is the major supplier of oil.
Mitt Romney, US presidential candidate has already fired the starting gun. In the next near future we will hear what the other politicians think about cold fusion technology.
One very good opinion article on the implications of the ECat in the 2012 presidential elections is available at PESN.
Stay tuned on ECat report. Another candidate’s opinions on new energies will be posted later today.
