Thanks to Sanjeev for sharing the following.

A new organization has been announced: Société Française de la Science Nucléaire dans la Matière Condensée (The French Society of Science Nuclear in Condensed Matter) — the website is here:

The purposes of the organization are described as follows on the website (translated by Google):

Many francophones interested in this exciting known under the name of “cold fusion”, but so far the information was mostly in English. This association allows all French-speaking people to meet.

The objective of this association, through the website and regular meetings is to better understand the latest advances in the field of low energy nuclear reactions and to participate in its development.

Officers are listed as Mathieu Valat — Chairman (also a member of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project), and Joris Van der Schot –Treasurer.

    I don’t suppose AlainCo could be behind this. (:->)

    • Gerard McEk

      I bet he is the founder! ;-}

    • sure not me,
      I prefer to torture English rather than French…

  • Agaricus

    Meanwhile the deafening silence continues in the UK – and we don’t even have any nuclear industry to speak of.

    • Dave Lawton

      Well there is Culham Lab but the word “Cold Fusion” is forbidden. It`s going have to
      be up to us Do-it-yourselfer`s

      Peter, do we know who is the highly qualified “expert” who advises the government on energy science.
      We may not have any “nuclear industry” left but we will soon have lots more Chinese Nuclear bombs planted around the Country, best not to live in Somerset, Cornwall is OK though, I think, ha.

      • Agaricus

        George, I suspect that very little notice is taken of experts, except those who might be brought in to rubber stamp some decision already made by politicians for, er, ‘non-technical’ reasons.

        Regarding the bombs, Cameron’s pension is looking less secure by the day, now that Areva have pulled out of investing. They’re desperately looking for more mugs, but there doesn’t seem to be much interest, and if they up the taxpayer stake they’ll be referred to the EU commission again for attempting to skew the market.

          Peter thanks, I have not kept up with the latest very well.
          It will be interesting if Cameron suddenly becomes a multi-millionaire like Blair.
          Could be an argument for all public figures and their relatives until death, to have to have open finances accessible by the public at anytime.

          • Agaricus

            Could be.

      • Agaricus

        George – replied, but gone into moderation (I unwisely echoed your word ‘b*mbs’ – that probably did it!).

    • GreenWin

      Ah, but you do have a Nobel laureate Brian Josephson who supports LENR and even comments positively in journal Nature. Too bad the few Brits who are LENR enlightened are given the short stick. UK may have the distinction of being the last western nation to build a giant fission reactor.

    • not for long.

  • Agaricus

    This is the answer.

    Now, what was the question again?…

  • georgehants

    Thanks Dave did she attend at Davos, where controlling the public is the main agenda.

  • Colibric41AC

    Super. Si vous me faites un suivi par des petits articles d’actualité de 1500s maximum. Je diffuserai régulièrement dans les commentaires d’une 15aine de grand merdia fr dans les articles traitant d’énergie fossile/nucléaire ou d’environnement/santé

    WOW…can you say ‘B*tch’……..oops, I meant ‘what a lovely lady’
