CNBC Commentary on Cold Fusion

CNBC has published a commentary article written by James Burgess of entitled, “Is Cold Fusion Finally Being Accepted by Scientists?”

It’s a fairly short article in which Burgess touches on the history of cold fusion research since 1989 and looks at some of the activity going on today. He states:

“Following recent LENR demonstrations at reputable institutions such as MIT, the University of Missouri, and the University of Bologna, as well as presentations by the world’s largest instrument companies, National Instruments, a report by the European Commission’s research and development center that suggests LENR has its place in the future of renewable energy, and most impressively of all, the fact that NASA is interested and reportedly filed two LENR patents last year; serious companies are now considering the possibilities of LENR and investing in certain research projects.”

Much of the information in the article has been touched on here and in other specialist web sites, but it’s significant that CNBC has chosen to feature the topic again after a rerun of the 60 Minutes cold fusion segment a few weeks ago. It seems that little by little, cold fusion is making an entrance into the pubic consciousness via sources outside the blogosphere where most of the coverage has been up until now.
