    Don't tell them that professor George Miley has confirmed 4 times that cold fusion is a fact. Not to even go into rossi. Don't tell them that their solar and wind power within a decade is going to be fucking worthless!:eusa_whistle:

    Well, Mathew, I hope you are correct. But untill I see the Cold Fusion processes working, I am not going to stop pushing for power that does not destroy the environment.

    What's your point?

    That renewable source of energy like solar and wind and geothermal are useless?

    That they serve no purpose whatever?

    No shit there's things we need and use that aren't renewable.

    But there are some sources of energy that ARE renewable.

    Go back to sleep.

    You're post is silly.
