Suppressed Technology: The War on Cold Fusion

This Phenomenon Archives documentary, produced in 2004, is an interesting step back in time, featuring many of the great minds we've come to revere in the field: Pons, Fleischmann, Eugene Mallove, Mike McKubre, George Miley, Ed Storms, Hagelstein, more. Comparisons given to other great suppressed technologies. See also "Science Fraud: is the Tail Wagging the Dog?"

In conclusion, Phenomenon: The Lost Archives host, Dean Stockwell states: "In a world where corruption, greed, and political maneuvering often win out over the virtues of the human spirit, we believe, perhaps naively, that an exception might exist in the experimental sciences. The history of science is littered with individual incidences of fraud, patent stealing, and flagrant misrepresentation; but here [cold fusion] we found a contemporary conspiracy that overshadows most of what we've discovered in the Phenomenon Archives."

Here's the documentary:

Here are the credits for this documentary as listed at http://www.epiphanypictures.com/phenomenon.html 

On March 23, 1989, respected chemists, Dr. Stanley Pons and Dr. Martin Fleishman made an announcement that rocked the world of science. Their tabletop experiments with heavy water, a renewable resource readily available in ocean water, yielded enormous amounts of heat energy. Appropriately named, "Cold Fusion," this breakthrough challenged many basic scientific concepts. In response, a group of powerful physicists, heavily reliant upon government funding for their hot fusion research, leveled an unprecedented smear campaign against Pons, Fleishman and the entire field of Cold Fusion science. Was the discovery of Fire From Water too good to be true? Or was it the discovery of the millennium?

Directed by: Chris Toussaint
Written by: Dr. Eugene Mallove, Jed Rothwell and Scott JT Frank

It's shown as the last episode in the Phenomenon Archives series.

In looking at other episodes in that series, I saw this one:

The Cold Fusion Debacle and the purported discovery of the Piltdown man stand as two of the greatest shams perpetrated over the course of scientific history. Have the people of science learned anything from the real or alleged Goldbricks of the past? Experts in the field seem to think not. Today's scientists are under mounting pressure to achieve results. If they do not, they risk losing research grants and/or a chance at University tenure. How do these inherent conflicts of interest impact the integrity of medical and scientific discovery and how do they affect our society at large?

Produced by: Barbara Sharp and Elliot Haimoff

It too is on YouTube. The portion about Pons & Fleischmann begins at 20:20. A lot of that footage was used in the later episode 14 dedicated to Cold Fusion.

Here's another one by Phenomenon, not directly related to Cold Fusion

At the end of the 19th century, a race was on to power the world. Fraught with shameless incidents of divisiveness and greed, some of our most respected historical figures sounded the battle cry, among them inventor Thomas Edison and the worldly entrepreneur, J.P. Morgan. Caught in the crossfire was arguably the greatest inventor of all time, the man responsible for harnessing Niagara Falls and the AC current that powers our homes. Nikola Tesla claimed he could provide everyone with free, unlimited energy. Could his claim have been true?

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
