    First it gets published, then it gets peer reviewed. Give it time.

    It has already had some peer review, and I dont think anyone is going to magically find flaws.

    There have been about a dozen independent groups to produce repeatable COP of 4 or more using some form of nanotech fusion like the paper in the OP describes.

    This stuff is real whether there are some charlatans involved or not. It is much bigger than that now.

    In ten years we will have plentiful water and virtually unlimited energy.

    If it is a noted publcation, peer review happens before publication.

    The purpose of peer review is to keep psuedo-science out of the publication while promoting respectable science in the publication..

    That is why alot of creationists have to create new journals, their science is more like stamp collecting with the refrain "Could randomness create this?" That is not science and it is definitely not pushing any scientific limits.

    Wow!!! Simply !WOW!

    Much to its credit, the first thing that Brillouin Energy says it is going to do with its new technology is to build a prototype boiler using its new heat source that would eventually replace the ones currently burning coal in our power stations. This is clearly a brilliant idea for swapping out old coal fired boilers for ones that run on a few cups of water would be a no-brainer for the world's electricity industry &#8211; provided of course they can be made to work reliably.

    Brillouin Energy says they have a contract with SRI International to design and build a prototype of what they call a "Hot Tube" boiler. If the concept works well Brillouin would license the technology to the world's boiler makers who presumably would work overtime replacing every fossil fuel fired boiler on the face of the earth. And that is just the start.
