Kitco.com: Bill Gates Sponsoring LENR Research and Development (Ian Walker)

According to Kitco

Bill Gates Sponsoring Palladium-Based LENR Technology

Tuesday December 23, 2014 14:20

Low energy nuclear reactor (LENR) technology, and by extension palladium, is attracting the attention of one of the richest men in the world and a pioneer inventor of new technology.”

It goes on to specify:
“In a recent visit to Italy, billionaire business man, investor and inventor Bill Gates said that for several years he has been a believer in the idea of LENR, and is a sponsor of companies developing the technology. Gates is not only the Chairman of TerraPower, a company developing a “new class of nuclear reactors using innovative core physics.” He is also a member of the American Energy Innovation Council and supporter of new technologies through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which he founded in 2000.”

    Perhaps another, mostly unpublished, reason oil is dropping like a rock in a pond?

    • I think the Saudis want to get rid of the broth as long as it is still worth anything.

      • Curbina

        Well, AFAIK Kitco is a metal price tracking and trading site, and the article has to be taken in that perspective. Their interest in publishing this information is clearly in palladium as a commoditty which’s demand and supply could be affected by this new interest. That said, and from the LENR perspective one has to discuss again why the Pd-D experiments were picked by Gates as interesting, and not the Ni-H ones.

        Marketing will fix things. Just put “made from all natural petroleum” on the pump.

        • Obvious

          Nice.
          We could also say the same for almost everything except maybe the lightest elements. “As natural as stardust”…

    Mr. Gates could help the World by making a public announcement of his knowledge of Cold Fusion and asking why the establishment and science media are still debunking and ignoring this most important scientific subject.

    • bachcole

      He might be afraid of being marginalized. Even Gates is not immune to marginalization any more than two time Nobel winner Linus Pauling.

      • I don’t think he is so vulnerable. He do not need investors/public approval if he is convinced himself. On the contrary, his investments could force other investors to enter, no matter if the science is proven or not.

        • bachcole

          boby, I did not mean to say that Gates could not financially support LENR. In fact, I believe that he is or is about to. I meant to say that he would not throw a press conference and tell everyone. And he is NOT immune to marginalization. Linus Pauling was VERY prestigious, yet he became a very unimportant person when the pharmaceutical companies got finished with him.

          BTW, I take about 9 grams of vitamin C every day and my resting heart rate is consistantly below 60. I even ran/walked about 3 miles a couple of days ago, pushing myself to exhaustion numerous times, with no fear of a heart attack whatsoever. I am 69 years old. And we can thank Linus Pauling for that. The bottom of my feet get kinda sore because of that. This illustrates that in the age of the Internet marginalizing someone will be much more difficult.

          • Well, I’ve heard for the megadoses of vit. C and cancer treatment theory, but didn’t know that Linus Pauling was advocating about. I’m really impressed, such performance at 69, thanks for sharing… I’m going to learn more about vit C and get more, though I already follow mostly organic diet, with plenty of my own garden vegetables, a lot of peppers (especially hot peppers – very rich of vit. C), tomatoes, etc.
            To get back to topic – now I really understand how powerful Big Pharma was against Pauling, and the analogy oil moguls against Bill Gates. However, fortunately as you mentioned we live in the internet age, and Gates himself is also ultra rich and more importantly – the IT companies are now sitting on mountains of cash, eager to invest in whatever next big thing is.

          • bachcole

            boby, for some reason I don’t seem to get all the emails generated from comments, so I have to scan the comments looking for “bachcole” to see if someone has responded to me and I didn’t get the email notification. So, I just now got your response.

            You are a man after my own cuisine. Where I live, we are lucky that human beings can survive: very high, very cold in winter, and very dry, with sandy soil. So, other than kefir in my kitchen, I don’t do any farming.

            One thing that Gates has that possible opponents to LENR don’t have: just himself. He won’t have to consult with a committee if he wants to act, while any opponents to LENR will hem and haw and consult with others before they act. And Gates has the muscle to defend himself. I feel sorry for any fool that gives him a hard time.

      And if he does, that is going to cause a world of excitement in this household, and I suspect in many, many more!

    Although palladium is far less abundant than nickel perhaps it could be made from the more plentiful element zirconium by the Mitsubishi transmutation process.

    Zr(90) + D > Pd(102)

    Zr(92) + D > Pd(104)

    Zr(94) + D > Pd(106)

    Zr(96) + D > Pd(108)

    And perhaps the palladium would take part in the “cold fusion” process but not be consumed (like a chemical catalyst).

    2D + Pd > Cd* > Pd + He(4)

    Overall:

    2D > He(4) 24 MeV (no gamma rays)

    MeV Christmas

    Unfortunately no sources cited in this article for an actual LENR investment or sponsorship. All rumor.

    • Buck

      It appears that they are a precious metals brokerage looking to drive business. They purposefully overlooked the fact that nickel is the key play in LENR and chose to imply Gates’ direct investments in LENR.

      • Anon2012_2014

        Agreed. Although it is possible a micron thick layer of Pd could also be effective.

      • jousterusa

        That, too!

    The “by extension” is the give-away:-

    “Low energy nuclear reactor (LENR) technology, and by extension palladium”
    Bill Gates is being associated with Palladium when in fact this has never been mentioned.
    The guy is clever enough to know that cold fusion is not restricted to this metal alone.

    I thought this was wonderful news when I first saw the headline about it in Slashdot, and then at Kitco. But now I think it’s a fabricated story that was written to push someone’s palladium position. I’m sorry I alerted Frank about it.
