It would appear that perhaps a new era is emerging in the science of energy production. Cold fusion is, apparently, here to stay. Once again, universities and governments are looking at cold fusion; many have already started research on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, as viable forms of energy. It’s remarkable that even some of the ones who publically denied the very own existence of these technologies, are starting to study these on their own, with the attitude that this is an acceptable, legitimate form of science with a lot of potential for the future.
While this new attitude may surprise some, it is long deserved in the realm of the scientists who have funded their own research. This is one of the reasons why Andrea Rossi has come so far with the E-Cat, being ready to market a home fusion unit capable of providing power to a house for an unlimited amount of time.
At an estimated $600-700 (as per Andrea Rossi’s various estimates), a person would be able to buy a home cold fusion unit to replace their need for fossil fuels and electricity.
But, will it really make a difference?
According to ECAT Cold Fusion Revolution, one liter of fuel used by the E-Cat is equal to 100 tanker trucks full of oil. Yes, the fuel is eventually depleted, but even at that, there is an estimated 1 billion years of hydrogen and nickel supplies on the planet, as opposed to 150 years of fossil fuel reserves.
Combine this with the fact that the hydrogen and nickel don’t have to be mined or drilled, and you can see an immediate benefit to the planet. But consider, too, that there are no emissions from E-Cat power units. Even though the E-Cat produces energy density higher even than uranium, there is no residual radioactive waste. The only emissions will be from the actual appliances used in the house.
It could, indeed, be the dawning of a new era.
