    SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGHS - Tuesday, July 17th 9p | 12a ET Cold Fusion Is Hot
    Again
    A report on cold fusion - nuclear energy like that which powers the sun, but
    made at room temperatures on a tabletop, which in 1989, was presented as a
    revolutionary new source of energy that promised to be cheap, limitless and
    clean but was quickly dismissed as junk science. Today, scientists believe
    that cold fusion, now most often called low temperature fusion or a nuclear
    effect, could lead to monumental breakthroughs in energy production.


    DARPA has budgeted $36 million to research LENR over the past two years with successful results.

    DARPA Nanotech Projects -$34 million investigating cold fusion and excess heat was found

    1. Fundamentals of Nanoscale and Emergent Effects and Engineered Devices -
    IE Cold Fusion Investigation

    Funding
    FY2011 $16.745 million
    FY2012 $11.65 million
    FY2013 $5.5 million

    This is the project where DARPA is spending about $34 million to investigate
    cold fusion on the nanoscale. They have found and generated excess heat for
    at least 2.5 days.

    A combination of tax funds and Federal Reserve gnomes who are working over time these days it seems.

    Thanks. So why isn't more money being thrown at this ala Solyndra, etc.
    Seems to me a bigger pony to chase.

    I can only guess that the close friends of the President and Emanuel and the Dailey's got first dibs.

    I think you are going to see more people discussing it over the next year then everyone will be for a while.
