Cold fusion experiment reproduced? Now what?
January 25, 2011 § 4 Comments
Hypothetically, near-room-temperature reactions in which two smaller nuclei join together to form a single larger nucleus while releasing large amounts of energy are possible. This hypothesis has been (maybe still is) highly controversial.
Reproducibility is one of the main principles of the scientific method, and it refers to the ability of a test or experiment to be accurately reproduced by someone else working independently. Attempts to replicate the Pons and Fleischmann experiment produced conflicting results. Until “now” that is. Italian scientists claim to have demonstrated cold fusion. And patented.
It looks like producing relatively nonpolluting fusion energy in quantity at any temperature is near. What is likely to happen?

Bankers, political ponerologists and con men show you what they do, they show you their cards are marked, and that you’ll be playing with their deck. They tell you what they are. Really, they do.
Can we protect ourselves from dark liquidity?

A key person asked me, “Is there any way for us to protect ourselves against dark liquidity?” after “dark liquidity” was written.
“Dark liquidity” lists a number of clues from deepcaster that we can use. This is just my stream on a more detailed possible initial approach to protect ourselves, whilst adding in some other matters and possible impacts of globalisation

What if “dark liquidity” (off-exchange) crossing platforms were introduced in European economies?
