Heavy Watergate: The War Against Cold Fusion

On March 23, 1989, respected chemists, Dr. Stanley Pons and Dr. Martin Fleishman made an announcement that rocked the world of science. Their tabletop experiments with heavy water, a renewable resource readily available in ocean water, yielded enormous amounts of heat energy. Appropriately named, “Cold Fusion,” this breakthrough challenged many basic scientific concepts. In response, a group of powerful physicists, heavily reliant upon government funding for their hot fusion research, leveled an unprecedented smear campaign against Pons, Fleishman and the entire field of Cold Fusion science. Was the discovery of Fire From Water too good to be true? Or was it the discovery of the millennium?

    Look, people, Pons and Fleishman didn’t invent anything. They have never been able to produce their “cold fusion” when anyone was watching. Ever. It’s the equivalent of saying “I could make cold fusion if I wanted too, I just don’t feel like it right now.”

      i strongly disagree, they were only jellous of the chemist and made them look like fools for it

    What’s with all the weird imagery? Natives dancing, old people playing volleyball, laughing chipmunk sound effects? Who edited this crap?

  • Paul

    So, if this effect is for real, why are we still waiting for cold fusion batteries, domestic generators and power stations? Or does the shadowy conspiracy extend to private industry as well?

      If the effects were real why didn’t they die from neutron radiation.

      You really must be desperate to resort to such a crude & pathetic promotional campaign as to try to trick people into visiting your low rent & tawdry website by masking its address within your name.

    Google: Cold Fusion Rossi

    As this Man is in the process of commercializing Cold Fusion this fall. 

    Screw the Elitist bastards who locked us out of clean power for 25 years!

      hehe you realise that Rossi’s cold fusion is 100% unproven at this point.
