Life at the Center of the Energy Crisis: A Technologist’s Search for a Black Swan by George H. Miley

By Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

Once again, we bring you a compilation of various news items about the various LENR companies since our June 27 compilation.

There was no mainstream news coverage that I could see this page week.

From LENR-Forum
Sent: Saturday, June 29, 2013 9:04 AM [Mountain]
Subject: LENR-Forum : Newsletter for the end of June 2013

Those last two month have been full of emotion :

The E-cat of Rossi raise much hope :
* Finally in May a preliminary version of a test report by a Swedish team of Elforsk was published : 
* Soon after Hydrofusion, the E-cat swedish licensee, publish a call for client ready to benefit from a E-cat 
This report raised interest of some mainstream media, but critics remind us that it won't be accepted easily.

Some other industrial actors moves also :
* Nasa fund a LENR research project toward a LENR plane 
* National Instruments Boss will participate a keynote conference at ICCF18 
* Yeong E Kim and Defkalion will present a theoretical paper at ICCF18 

Some moves in the scientific community :
* ENEA presented Cold Fusion at a meeting in EU parliament 
* Sergio Focardi died recently, too bad he did not see his victory in the newspapers. 
* MFMP announce excess-heat in their US and EU cells 

And many other news, discussion, old and recent stories... An new one you can add !

LENR-Forum itself evolve, and we created dedicated forums for various actors, and changed the look to be more compact.
We hope it please you. 

This summer will be hot, about Cold Fusion!

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

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.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
