The following is a guest post from ECW reader Hope4Dbest
Now that the Ecat (or other iterations) seem to be closer and closer, it is time for the acronym LENR to be “dissappeared”. We are so used to reading it that we forget that the ‘N’ stands for Nuclear. How many bad images does the word “nuclear” bring?
Can you imagine what the oil and coal industry (and probably the nuclear too) will make of the “Nuclear” in LENR? A Chernobyl in every house? A Fukushima in your basement? Three Mile Island instead of a blown fuse?
How can we counteract that? With science? How many people will understand the difference between a fission reactor and the Ecat?
It is a matter of certain urgency, because when the cat comes out of the bag, the first name in the press reports is the one that will stick. So, for those of us who cannot contribute with the science, let’s put our thinking caps about a name
Here’s a submission off the top of my head: SPFS. No, it doesn’t roll off the tongue, but Safe Power Fusion System sounds harmless enough and has a hidden hommage of Pons and Fleischmann.
Whatever name to choose, we have to consider that it WILL be dissected and analyzed by people smarter than we are, and who do not exactly have the best interests of the world in mind.
