Global Warming its Worse than We Thought

The damage done to the atmosphere by greenhouse gases could be far worse than we think. The effects of current burning of fossil fuels could be felt for over 100,000 years according to scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research in Germany.

Whooly Mammoths during the last ice age

To make matters the same research indicates that even limited burning of fossil fuels and other materials by humans could have a massive impact on the world’s climate. Andrey Ganopolski the lead researcher on the Institute’s latest study told CNN that he thinks that the burning of fossil fuels for the last two centuries could have delayed the next ice age by 100,000 years.

Is Piantelli close to Commercializing Technology?

There has been a sudden burst of activity from nicHenergy the Italian company associated with low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) pioneer Francessco Piantelli. The company’s website has been completely rebuilt and now contains a great deal of English language content about its work.

The White Chamber containing Piantelli's LENR device at nicHenergy's labs in Sienna, Italy.

The site states that nicHenergy’s goal is to conduct research into LENR, Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reaction (LANR), Chemical Assisted Nuclear Reactions (CANR) and Cold Fusion. The ultimate objective of that research will be to develop industrial power sources and compact devices that can be used as power sources.

Study Confirms Elite Science Bias

An interesting study published by The National Bureau Standards could show us why the scientific community is so reluctant to embrace new ideas like Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR).

In Does Science Advance One Funeral at a Time? Researchers discovered that when a big name scientist or researcher dies, his or her field suddenly sees an eight percent increase in new papers and research, Vox reported. Researchers Pierre Azoulay, Christian Fons-Rosen and Joshua S. Graff Zivin also found that the rock star scientists’ colleagues and protégées see a decline in influence as scientific journals publish fewer of their papers after the icon’s death.

Rossi Reveals Ecat X, Gates and other Billionaires Open Checkbooks for Clean Energy

Andrea Rossi has created a new design for his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction technology (LENR) that he calls the E-Cat X. The details of E-cat X are not available but Rossi has revealed it will be modular and possibly smaller and cheaper to manufacture.

Like his earlier E-Cat designs, Rossi wants to make the X a module so several small E-cats can be assembled into a large power unit. This means it could be used to power something as small as your house or assembled into a large scale power unit. Note: this does not sound that different from Rossi’s earlier designs.

Brillouin Brings LENR to US Capitol

Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) came to Washington DC and the home of the world’s most powerful legislative body – the United States Congress last week. Representatives of Brillouin Energy Corporation held a conference on their LENR technology on Capitol Hill on November 9, 2015.

Attendees at the conference reportedly included members of the US Congress. Unfortunately the legislators that attended the event were not identified in a Brillouin press release that’s making the rounds. The presence of members of Congress is important because in the United States it is Congress and not the President that sets the federal budget.

Rossi claims “Well Known Companies” Have Placed Orders for E-cat

It is easy to see why a lot of people do not take Andrea Rossi very seriously. He has made yet another round of sensational yet unsubstantiated claims about his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology.

In an interview with Frank Acland that popped up on e-catworld.com on October 25, 2015, Rossi said “yes” when Acland asked: “Have you had any orders so far from well-known companies?”

Unfortunately Acland forgot to ask the next logical question which is: “can you identify those companies?” Since Acland did not ask the question, the response above is absolutely meaningless. Even if Rossi refused to identify the companies that would at least be a response. It would also be news.

E-Cat Lab Moving to Raleigh Suburb

We now know the general location where research into Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology will be conducted in the United States. The company which purchased the rights to e-cat for $11 million last year, Industrial Heat LLC is moving to a 20,000 square foot laboratory space in Cary, North Carolina – a suburb of Raleigh, The Triangle Business Journal reported.

Downtown Cary North Carolina the e-cat could soon be there.

The first public demonstrations of e-cat in the United States could be held at the space, The Journal reported. Industrial Heat hopes to make its first big, proven breakthrough in Cary.

Major British Investment Fund could Put Money into LENR

A major British investment fund headed by a prestigious player in the City of London could be putting money into Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) research including possibly Andrea Rossi’s e-cat technology.

Woodford Investment Management has joined Cherokee Investment Partners in investing in LENR research, Cherokee’s CEO and Founder Tom Darden revealed in an interview with Fortune. Darden did not reveal the extent of Woodford’s investment or say exactly what LENR projects it was funding.

E-Cat Test to Conclude in February

February 2016 could be a very important month, that’s when commercialization of Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology could begin. On September 21, 2015, in a post at his blog Rossi himself revealed that the current round of testing of the one megawatt testing is supposed to wrap up in February 2016.

Here is what the Italian-American inventor wrote in response to a correspondent labelled Toussaint:

“The tests should end by February 2016, so long no major delays are caused by malfunctions.

Warm Regards,

A.R.”

Is an LENR Patent Revolution is Upon Us?

It looks as if a low energy nuclear revolution (LENR) patent revolution could be upon us. Over at Forbes contributor Basil Moftah noted that the recent explosion in autonomous vehicles while was proceeded by a burst of patent activity, Mr. Moftah also believes that a similar burst of activity in Hyperloop patents is inevitable.

Well now it looks like a burst of LENR patent activity is going on if recent news stories can be believed. At least three major LENR patents have have been made public in recent weeks. The recent LENR patent activity includes:
