Cold Fusion Goes Back to School at MIT
Colloquium to be held on Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus
May 21, 2005.
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, USA -- The Massachusetts Institute of Technology
will be the site of a daylong colloquium May 21, on the topics of cold fusion
and other clean energy research.
"The clean energy colloquium is a timely opportunity for the active but
underfunded cold fusion community in the United States to discuss recent
progress, perspectives and possible actions," research professor David J.
Nagel of The George Washington University said.
The debate on this controversial topic was rekindled by the 2004 Department of
Energy cold fusion review.
The reviewers remained undecided about cold fusion but encouraged further study
in this mysterious new scientific field.
"A healthy skepticism is warranted," says Steven B. Krivit, author of
a recent book on cold fusion. "However, the facts show that cold fusion
experiments have been demonstrated, reproduced, replicated and published in
Experimental evidence consistently demonstrates that nuclear-scale energy, in
the form of heat, is being generated without harmful radiation, greenhouse
gasses or nuclear waste.
With the uncertain future of oil and natural gas supplies, and the undeniable
rising cost of oil, the prospect of clean nuclear energy comes at an ideal time.
One of the presenters, Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Thermal Products, has
developed a working experimental cold fusion reactor. Swartz demonstrated the
device at MIT in August 2003 during the 10th International Conference on Cold
