Dear Mr. President,
This past week a truly remarkable event transpired in the field of energy production that has gone completely unremarked in the mainstream media. This event was the independent verification of a device about the size of a ten inch piece of broom stick that over the course of 32 days produced a net energy out of 1.5 MWh, about the equivalent of burning a fifty gallon barrel of gasoline. The fuel was about 1 gram (half the weight of a penny) of a proprietary nickel powder that was not changed or added too during the test and was not completely consumed during the test.
This device, the E-Cat, is of Italian origin but being developed by an American company, Industrial Heat. Industrial Heat will almost certainly send any mass production of these devices to China and may never sell them in the US simply because they will never be allowed to.
The critics of this device and so-called “Cold Fusion” in general believe that this device must be a hoax because it’s existence violates everything that is known to date about nuclear physics. The primary criticism of the report seems to be that either the scientists doing the study were beyond incompetent or that there is a conspiracy of fantastical proportions to scam some unknown person or persons out of money.
We live in an era where availability of energy is key to economic survival. Whichever nation develops the ability to generate essentially unlimited electricity with little or no environmental impact and extremely low cost will dominate the worlds economy for the next hundred years.
