From the Archive: Eugene Mallove on Cold Fusion

I thought this video I just came across of excerpts of an interview with Eugene Mallove was worth sharing here. I’m not sure of the date, but it must have been 1991 or later as he holding a copy of his book Fire from Ice, which was published in that year.

Mallove was the chief science writer at MIT during the days when the Pons and Fleischmann cold fusion controversy hit the news and eventually resigned his position because of the way the institute dealt with the subject. He went on to become the publisher of Infinite Energy magazine. Mallove was tragically killed in 2004 as he was cleaning out a rental property of his parents.

The things he discusses here are still very relevant to the current state of affairs in cold fusion research. The things he mentions here about President Bill Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore were news to me.
