Cold fusion

Tabletop fusion breakthroughs are too hot for ideologically entrenched scientists

In the world of physics, one of the fastest ways to commit academic suicide is to conduct research into tabletop fusion. Mere mention of the term "tabletop fusion" or "cold fusion" causes previously logical, unemotional physics department colleagues to transform into raging cultist lunatics who believe that discrediting low-energy nuclear reactions is a religious calling. Witness the treatment of Fleishman and Pons, two chemists who demonstrated tabletop fusion in the late 1980's and were immediately attacked, discredited and ostracized by advocates of hot fusion. Yet cold fusion experiments are alive and well today, with verified results being replicated in literally hundreds of labs around the world.

Now a new round of attacks is being unleashed against Purdue researcher Rusi Taleyarkhan, who has gone public with his construction of a tabletop nuclear fusion device that's about the size of a coffee maker. Taleyarkhan's device produces excess heat energy via low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) initiated through a phenomenon called sonoluminescence. In sonoluminescence, high-frequency sound waves are blasted into special liquids (like heavy water or heavy acetone), momentarily creating micro-bubbles that collapse in a burst of light and heat energy, leaving behind obvious traces of low-energy nuclear reactions such as excess helium.

Similar to this process, any mention of the word "sonoluminescence" in an academic setting causes sound vibrations to reach the ears of competing physics colleagues whose intellectual bubbles burst in a dazzling display of heated jealousy. This result, too, has been reproduced in research universities around the world.

At Purdue, Taleyarkhan is now being accused of actually conducting interesting science. How was he to know that certain areas of interesting results would be considered sacrilegious to the Church of Hot Fusion?

LENR research is welcomed almost everywhere in the world -- Japan, Germany, Canada, Russia -- but not in the U.S. In the United States, the censorship of science has now become routine in areas like global warming and cold fusion, where the only researchers allowed to continue working are those who subscribe to the politics that says pollution does not affect the environment and there's no such thing as low-energy nuclear reactions. Even while we are facing a certain energy crisis in the years ahead, some of the most promising clean energy research being conducted today is routinely censored, criticized and shut down. All in the name of science, of course.

As I've always said, a true scientist is one who asks questions of nature and observes the answers, regardless of whether those answers comply with political protocol or institutional biases. In this way, scientists like Taleyarkhan are true scientists. Their critics, on the other hand, are just altar boys working for the Church of Preordained Science, where the overriding belief is that all science has already been discovered, and no new breakthroughs will ever be found unless they involve billions of dollars in government grants, enormous budgets, and over-inflated egos to match.

This is why I believe the United States is being left behind in clean energy research. My prediction is that either Japan or Canada will soon commercialize LENR devices, leaving the U.S. holding tightly to its outdated oil economy and massive, multi-billion dollar hot fusion projects that have yet to feed a single Watt of electricity into the national power grid.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
