Tyler Cowen, proven wrong on PBS? – [VIDEO]
Brian Caplan tweeted that the GMU prof was wrong and the MIT prof was right. Is that your personal view? I am not impressed by the futuristic MIT gadgets, as they won’-t necessary correspond to people’-s needs. Hence, I don’-t buy their argument that the real problem is not being capable of “-keeping up”- with the pace of technology. We don’-t care about technology we don’-t need.

Cold fusion reactors are coming to America, so US energy economists (like Michael Giberson) cannot ignore LENR anymore. – [NEWS]
NyTeknik published an article today about Ampenergo, a newly formed US company which will be partnering with Andrea Rossi’s, company, Leonardo Corporation to commercialize his E-Cat technology.

Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat is a cold fusion reactor able to convert few grams of nickel powder and a small amount of high pressure hydrogen into heat for many months. — [VIDEO]
Someone has translated in English the Italian documentary on Andrea Rossi’s cold fusion reactor:

Andrea Rossis cold fusion reactor (E-cat) – [LINKS]
I have posted about Andrea Rossi’-s cold fusion reactor, which inputs nickel powder (with some catalysts) and hydrogen, and which outputs heat (factor 30) and copper. Since I have updated that post, I wanted to recommend you 2 interviews of him, and some physics articles.
The price of nickel is so low (20 euro per kg) that it should have to raise of orders of magnitude to make this tech uncompetitive. Nickel is very common on the Earth, and with a tiny percentage of the yearly extraction of nickel it would be possible to produce all the energy needed in the World.
– How Andrea Rossi financed his R&-D.
The powder has reportedly been used for 2.5 months continuously with an output of 10 kW (according to Rossi). It corresponds to a total energy of 18 MWh, with a consumption of up to 100 grams of nickel and two grams of hydrogen. If the production had been done with oil, two tons of oil would have been required.
– Finally, here’-s an index of all papers and articles on cold fusion, cold fusion reactors, low-energy nuclear reactions, chemically-assisted nuclear reactions, etc.: http://www.lenr-canr.org/
