Recent research has indicated that Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (sometimes called LENR or Cold Fusion) may very well be real. In fact, several small companies founded by researchers claim to be very close to having LENR devices ready to go to market.
LENR technologies - if they are real - when used on a large scale could revolutionize energy production around the world. Air pollution, the depletion of natural resources, and CO2 emissions that are said to cause global warming would be dramatically curtailed. The DOE, with its $24 billion annual budget, has neglected to investigate LENR technologies. Isn’t it time for the DOE to get out front on LENR research and let the world know if these technologies are real?
