As U.S. President Obama recently stated in his 2012 "State of The Union" Address" we need to pursue "All the Above" in alternative energy. Many applauded this. However, we can surely forget about polluting methods such as the humorous and absurd public relations creation of "clean coal" when truly clean, cheap, and safe alternatives exist... even if it means a loss of easy monopoly profit for some who have "had it made in the shade" for the last century. In the early 1900's, no one really cared that the "horse and buggy" industry was greatly curtailed by the advent and huge popularity of the automobile, and they received no government largess or corporate welfare... and they did not have the most powerful political lobby ever seen (perhaps if they did, we would still be riding horses to work). People were glad to see the piles of dung gone from the roads. It is time to end the pollution, the corruption, and the hand-outs to the fossil fuel energy giants... the most profitable, and politically "powerful" entities in history... and to create a world where the energy equation is Positive for us all, not negative for all but a few.

We cannot let either corporate influence/corruption, or the lack of interest of the mainstream scientific community stop LENR research and development from happening as soon as possible. We should work out the academic Theories later, let the theoretical Physicists and Chemists fight it out in the ring while the Engineers move ahead... and stop ignoring the empirical proofs. We need serious funding for more research, for actual engineering work to see these things realized. Not "ten years from now" (the same old broken political promises we have heard for over 40 years regarding any form of Alternative Energy that happens to threaten entrenched monopolies): But now, this year, since we know the truth and it can no longer be denied: M.I.T., NASA, DARPA, and a hundred laboratories around the planet have shown us this Truth.   

It is time to look into the "Telescope"... even if it means changing some text books and college curriculum notes, and breaking some highly profitable monopolies. The cost of not doing so when we realize a superior alternative exists and is ready to go, is too terrible to contemplate.

The time for denial has ended; the plausible excuses are gone. The time for action is here.

Links of Interest on LENR

M.I.T. symposium publicly demonstrates deuterium-palladium lattice based LANL / LENR with "x10 Energy Gain" on Jan 31, 2012 , performed by JET Energy (apparently a spin out from MIT) with Professors Hagelstein and Swartz presiding.

Info on Dr. Peter L. Hagelstein of M.I.T. who co-hosted the above

Rossi "Ecat" method of Nickel-Hydrogen LENR first public demonstration at University of Bologna January 2011 (there were 2 more subsequent public demonstrations, all claimed successful).

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-01-italian-scientists-cold-fusion-video.html

The CBS "Sixty Minutes" program segment "Cold Fusion Is Hot Again", first aired in 2009 , when the U.S. government first publicly admitted LENR is "real". Since then, nothing has significantly changed with funding for this important subject. Why is that?

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/04/17/60minutes/main4952167.shtml

NASA resent (2011) presentation on LENR that appears to verify the validity of the technology and continued research on it.

A well-done visualization video of how the palladium lattice accepts deuterium and produces heat, done by the Energetics laboratory of Israel, who have claimed 25 times the energy out verses input. Their use of specific waveform shapes are claimed in dramatically improve performance.
