It seems that the United States has had a renewed intrest in more exotic energy concepts because of the rising energy demands. This need for more
energy could be a plus for the world. Any new technologies developed may be shared with the world.
Cold fusion, briefly hailed as the silver-bullet solution to the world's energy problems and since discarded to the same bin of quackery as
paranormal phenomena and perpetual motion machines, will soon get a new hearing from Washington.
Despite being pushed to the fringes of physics, cold fusion has continued to be worked on by a small group of scientists, and they say their figures
unambiguously verify the original report, that energy can be generated simply by running an electrical current through a jar of water.
I'll add that Business Week published an article on cold fusion or sonofusion in their March 29th 2004 issue. Apparently a startup company called
Impulse Devices Inc. is hoping to build fusion generators within 10 years or so. I wish them luck. This would be fantastic news if it works out.
