There’s an article on the Richtopia website that looks at Tom Darden’s role in championing LENR. The article, written by Mae Merriweather, is rather dramatically titled, “How Not Knowing Tom Darden Could Make You a Rookie in Tech” and looks at Darden’s funding of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat.

Here’s an excerpt which gives a flavor of the article:
The LENR is considered an outlandish and risky technology. This is because creating fusion energy requires an extreme amount of heat to break the bonds in atoms. Breaking the bonds of atoms at such low temperatures violates the laws of physics. Darden has licensed the technology of Andrea Rossi, an Italian scientist, and entrepreneur for this ambitious project. Rossi has in the past seen some success with experiments of cold fusion. To date, Darden’s company has invested more than $ 10 million in tests and added research for Rossi’s work and plans to spend more. The results so far have been extremely promising. If this works, it would address air pollution, including carbon, and this technology could be a game changer for industries in environmental science.
It provides rather introductory information on Darden and LENR from a not very well-known website (as far as I can determine), but it does show that there is interest in LENR in some new places — beyond the usual sites that follow LENR. Merriweather certainly gives a positive take on the subject, and sees Tom Darden in an almost superhero role (one heading is “How Tom Darden Could Help Preserve Life on Earth …”).
I see that some of our regular readers have left comments there already.
