Dr. Eugene Mallove: New Energy Pioneer
"Anything that is theoretically possible will be achieved in practice, no matter what the technical difficulties, if it is desired greatly enough."
--Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future
Imagine nuclear reactions taking place in an ordinary cup of water, producing limitless energy but no
harmful radiation. Such is the promise of cold fusion, a hypothetical form of fusion which takes place at normal room temperature. Perhaps the greatest proponent of cold fusion was the late Dr. Eugene Mallove. In his Pulitzer-nominated book, Fire From Ice:
Searching for the Truth Behind the Cold Fusion Furor
, Mallove declares:
"After reviewing mounting evidence from cold fusion experiments, I am persuaded that it provides a compelling indication that a new kind of nuclear process is at work. I would say that the evidence is overwhelmingly compelling that cold fusion is a real..."
Dr. Mallove worked tirelessly to educate people to the scientific validity of cold fusion and other new energy technologies. To this end, he published 52 issues of Infinite Energy
magazine, a compendium of research into unconventional energy. He also traveled to conferences around the world, speaking with other energy researchers and raising funds for the New Energy Foundation
His persistence has recently paid off. In March 2004, the Department of Energy decided to review over 15 years of cold fusion (or what they call "low-energy nuclear reactions" - LENR) evidence/research. Dr. Mallove would have been quite pleased indeed.
