Police investigate Norwich slaying of N.H. man
NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - Police were investigating the killing of a 56-year-old science writer from New Hampshire.
Eugene F. Mallove, of Pembroke, N.H., died of multiple injuries to his head and neck, the Norwich Bulletin reported Sunday. The office of the chief state's medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.
Police confirmed Mallove's identity Sunday.
Mallove was discovered at a house owned by his family late Friday night after police received a report of an injured person. He had been assaulted, police said.
An initial investigation indicated a robbery and a physical confrontation, police said. Several unidentified items were taken and Mallove's vehicle was missing.
Mallove's 1993 green Dodge Caravan was found several hours later in an employee parking lot at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket.
Mallove and his wife, Joanne, moved to Pembroke, N.H., from Norwich in 1987. He was president of the nonprofit New Energy Foundation and editor-in-chief of the organization's magazine Infinite Energy

Officer Damian Martin, center, and Officer Anthony Gomes, left, ask drivers Saturday night if they were witness to any activity Friday night in front of 119 Salem Turnpike in Norwich.
NORWICH -- A 56-year-old former Norwich man was killed during a suspected robbery and brutal assault at his family home on Salem Turnpike Friday.
Dr. Eugene F. Mallove, a Norwich Free Academy graduate, published author and father of two, died of multiple injuries to his head and neck, according to an autopsy performed Saturday at the Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner in Farmington. The death was ruled a homicide.
Police would not confirm Mallove's identity Saturday pending positive identification by family members.
Mallove was discovered at the small 119 Salem Turnpike house at 10:55 p.m. Friday after police received a report of an injured person.
At the house, situated at the entrance to Interstate 395 in a primarily commercial area, police found Mallove unresponsive, the victim of an assault. He was later pronounced dead by medical personnel called to the scene.
Police said initial investigation indicated a robbery, during which a physical confrontation took place. Several unidentified items were taken from the scene and Mallove's vehicle was missing, according to a written statement released by Norwich police.
Several hours later, Mallove's 1993 green Dodge Caravan was found in the Foxwoods employee parking lot on Route 2 in Preston. The vehicle is easily identifiable by several large bumper stickers, including an American flag and his company Web site, www.infinite-energy.com, in the rear window. The New Hampshire license plate bears the registration INFNRG.
Police are now seeking information from anyone who saw the vehicle between 7 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday.
Police declined to provide further details of the killing Saturday.
Cars sped past the quiet Salem Turnpike home Saturday, where a large Dumpster was situated alongside the home in the driveway. Several cars, which looked as though they hadn't been moved in some time, are near the two-bay detached garage.
The home, owned by Mallove's parents since 1958, is now under Eugene Mallove's care, according to city records.
Mallove, with his wife, Joanne, had moved to Pembroke, N.H., from Norwich in 1987.
In New Hampshire, Mallove was the president of the nonprofit New Energy Foundation and since 1995 the editor-in-chief of the organization's magazine Infinite Energy.
The bimonthly magazine covers topics of new technological innovations in energy and science and follows developments in the field, according to its Web site.
Infinite Energy managing editor Christy Frazier worked with Mallove for the past six years and had become very close.
She called Mallove the "most caring and giving person I probably have ever known -- a very successful, brilliant man.
"It's been a wonderful, wonderful experience. It's hard not to love the things he loves because he's so passionate," she said. "He touched the lives of everybody he came in contact with."
Mallove's parents, Mitchel and Gladys Mallove, had followed their son's move to New Hampshire in 1988. His father, the son of Russian immigrants, died in March 2003 after a long illness, according to a published obituary. He is buried at the Hebrew Benevolent Cemetery in Norwich.
Eugene Mallove had become a grandfather just this year and was caring for his mother, who has Alzheimer's disease, Frazier said. She said Mallove was a Norwich Free Academy graduate.
He held a master of science degree and bachelor of science degree in aeronautical and astronautical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and received a science doctorate in environmental health sciences from Harvard University in 1975.
He also taught science journalism at MIT and Boston University and previously was chief science writer at the MIT news office.
He is the author of numerous technical articles and of several books, including the Pulitzer-nominated book on cold fusion titled, "Fire and Ice: Searching for the Truth Behind the Cold Fusion Furor."

Dr. Eugene Mallove, Torch Bearer for Cold Fusion, Slain
Editor of Infinite Energy magazine brutally killed May 14. Left MIT faculty position in 1989 in protest over what he considered to be rigged data intended to debunk Cold Fusion.
By Marc J. Plotkin Marc Whitford

NORWICH, CT, USA
Dr. Eugene Mallove, the tireless spokesperson for integrity and honesty in cold fusion research, whose persistent efforts finally persuaded the U.S. Department of Energy to give the phenomenon a second look after 15 years of denial and stonewalling, was killed in Norwich, CT on 14 May 2004. Few facts are known, but preliminary information suggests that it may have been a robbery or possibly a landlord-tenant dispute. Local police are still investigating. There is no word on the identity or motives of the assailant(s) and there is no evidence currently of a political connection to his murder.
Dr. Mallove’s contributions to Cold Fusion and new energy research cannot be overstated. His passion for integrity and relentless search for the truth emerged fully in 1989 when he resigned in protest from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. over their manipulation of test data to make a Pons-Fleischmann replication study appear to show a negative result.
More than anyone, Dr. Mallove was the public face of Cold Fusion proclaiming in many public appearances the existence of overwhelming peer-reviewed scientifically-based evidence for Cold Fusion. Gene, as he was known to his friends and colleagues, was courageous when he stood face-to-face against numerous vocal detractors and skeptics from the mainstream scientific establishment for over a decade. He tirelessly knocked down every hollow argument put forward by skeptics with hard data, logic, and solid research results.
The author of several books, in 1991, he published “Fire and Ice”, which helped rescue the field of cold fusion from oblivion when it was publicly banished in the public relations scandals after Pons-Fleischman's announcement of Cold Fusion in June 1989.
His greatest accomplishment and legacy will be the 52 bi-monthly magazine issues of Infinite Energy that he founded and edited. Infinite Energy magazine is a compendium of scientific research into all branches of unconventional energy research from contributors around the world. Many of the authors simply couldn't get published elsewhere, but had the courage and foresight to get most papers peer-reviewed before they were published. His magazine has thousands of loyal subscribers from over 40 countries including Russia and China. See www.infinite-energy.com.
Gene traveled to dozens of international conferences, most of the time at great personal sacrifice simply to network with energy researchers and benefactors from around the world. He knew nearly everyone in the unconventional energy community worldwide. Gene has been a champion of cold fusion for many years highlighted by his organizing last summer's successful International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-10) held in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 24- 29 August 2003. Gene's presence has been the rare voice of scientific reason in a field filled with many phony claims and charlatans. See the web page with the experiments at http://www.lenr-canr.org/Experiments.htm.
Equally significant but perhaps not as well known is the New Energy Foundation, which he founded with the help of a generous wealthy anonymous benefactor. The New Energy Foundation has become a science-based clearinghouse, generating much needed funds for promising energy research leading to commercialization.
His latest triumph was to reverse over a decade of ignorance at the Department of Energy by presenting compelling evidence of anomalous reactions of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). DOE's decision to review the files on LENR aka Cold Fusion could possibly open a new area of scientific inquiry that has been closed since 1989. This was a triumph not just for Gene personally, but for every scientist who spoke as lone voices in large auditoriums. Gene's voice gave courage to those brave individuals who toiled in their laboratories, struggling to survive with virtually no funding. Despite their challenges, many developed innovative ways produce low energy nuclear reactions. Researchers often put their careers in jeopardy, and some only approached this field when a retirement pension was assured.
Gene tirelessly climbed every mountain with courage and grace articulating truth in a field meriting serious scientific investigation of anomalous energy phenomena despite constant criticism from ignorant skeptics who refused to examine even the best peer-reviewed data. One of the best examples of his battles was when he eviscerated Professor Bob Park's book "Voodoo Science."
"Gene's vision was of a world with abundant energy produced without fossil fuel or nuclear waste. It is now up to us to fearlessly make that vision a reality," is the sentiment of his colleagues who remain.

What did Dr Mallove Know and When did He Know it?
Just finished reading: "Fire from Ice" Searching for the Truth behind the Cold Fusion Furor, by Dr. Mallove (1947-2004).
In it, Dr. Mallove gives a highly credible report on the research efforts of Dr. B. Stanley Pons and Dr. Martin Fleischman who awakened the world on March 23, 1989 with their announcement of over unity production of heat energy that has become known to the world as Cold Fusion.
Using an electrochemical process involving Palladium and Platinum elements, and a mixture of heavy water (Deuterium) Pons and Fleischman were able to sustain continuous output of heat energy significantly beyond the amount of energy put into the cell.
They reported as much as 100 times excess heat production beyond the input electrical source.
Their 'Cold Fusion' cell was able to demonstrate a continuous 50 times over input energy output.
Dr. Mallove reported that in one experiment Pons and Fleischman ran their cell for 2,000 hours, about 83 days, with excess energy pouring forth.
Much of Dr. Mallove's book reveals how different people in the scientific community viewed the curious reports coming from Utah in those early days of the Cold Fusion episode and the controversy surrounding their claims of excess heat production from their Cold Fusion cell.
"Its is no longer possible to lightly dismiss the reality of Cold Fusion.
Julian Schwinger, Nobel laureate in physics, 1965."
Salt Lake City, March 30, 1990.*
There developed a vast literature between those who believed that Pons and Fleischman actually were producing Cold Fusion and those who considered it all too unlikely.
The fact remained, the excess heat discovered in this exotic and not understood process was a fact that could not be explained away easily.
Many other laboratories around the world replicated the efforts of Pons and Fleischman, with a variety of results.
Some to little effect, others with consistent output of excess heat. How could this be explained?
About a decade earlier, Dr. Mallove had investigated the claims of excess heat production in devices called 'Shearing force oil heaters.'
One patent for a shearing force oil heater issued in 1928 claimed 7 times output over input energy in the form of excess heat.
In his early 1980s look, Dr. Mallove found excess heat coming after testing shearing force oil heaters.
He was challenged by the establishments' claim that the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics would not allow for excess heat to appear.
Basically they say that more energy cannot come out of a machine than can go in. So how do we explain the excess heat?
In the Cold Fusion example, more heat out than went in. IN his book Dr. Mallove mentions one scientist who suggested that somehow there was a 'mass absorption' happening in the cell and that that may be why there was the excess heat appearing.
This thing called 'mass absorption' was first discovered in 1898 by J.J. Thompson, when he accelerated electrons and found that they absorbed mass due to the effects of acceleration.
In 1906 French physicist Gustave LeBon suggested that this discovery by Thompson of mass absorption may be useful in tapping into the power of the universe, though no elaboration was given for why he felt that. Could it have been Some intuitive sense that had given him this clue?
A patent was issued in 1993 claiming 30% excess heat output from a device called a shock wave pump.
Some would describe this as a cavitation pump. It accelerates water and produces a shock wave in the water.
IN 2003 a Russian group examined a Moldavian cavitation pump that was reported to be producing excess heat. It was tested and found to be 4 times over the input energy.
Now what do all of these machines from the Cold Fusion cell to the shearing force oil heater to the cavitation and shock waves pumps have in common other than they are producing accelerations of what is in them?
Platinum and Palladium are catalysts. Catalysts produce acceleration in reactions.
So can we agree that the one thing all these machines that are showing excess heat production are producing accelerations in one way or the other?
From The Platinum and Palladium catalytic acceleration reaction to the high velocity shearing forces and the accelerations in the shock wave and cavitation pumps; Are they not all producing acceleration?
Are not all of these machines then also absorbing mass?
In that same year that LeBon suggested mass absorption to tap into the power of the universe, 1906, Frederick Trouton suggested that if there was anything to this theory of relativity, that it may have something to do with tapping into the power of the universe.
The theory of relativity was first suggested in 1889 BY George Fitzgerald who proposed that time contracts upon acceleration, as his explanation for why the 1887 Michelson-Morley experiment found a null result.
Aether was hypothesized to exist by Aristotle and before him by Plato in the 4th century BC. The aether was proposed as occupying the space between the stars in the heavens.
Michelson-Morley found a null result in 1887, no aether did they detect. Why?
Fitzgerald hypothesized time contraction in 1889 due to the velocity of our travel through the Cosmos. The accelerated motion of our planet produced a time contraction that matched the aether rate, so no aether could be detected.
For our purposes, that's close enough. What has been proven to be true is that time compresses upon being accelerated into speed of light ranges.
Acceleration produces mass absorption as has been known since 1898 when J.J. Thompson demonstrated it.
Mass absorption produces a higher density of field, a compression of the field which shows a corresponding slowing of the rate of time flow.
Something Dr. Mallove mentioned, in his book concerning the Cold Fusion cell, there was detected in the cell .8 volts while the cell was at rest.
If you put a nail in a tree and a metal rod in the ground, and test for voltage, you may find that amount (.8v) of potential there. Could the .8v while the cell was not in operation indicate a static field reaction?
Stanley Meyers (1940-1998) Was using an electro chemical process to operate his dune buggy using water in the early 1990s.
Henry Rowland (1848 – 1901) was a U.S. physicist.
From Memory, Henry said that "All matter is electrical in nature."
Would like to add this: "All matter is electrical and magnetic in nature."
It is this dual nature of matter (electrical and magnetic) that allows for tapping into the power of the Cosmos by manipulating time as the differential in free energy machines.
Is there anyone who has seriously looked at the free energy over unity field that is not totally convinced that free energy is a reality now as it was then when Dr. Mallove was writing about the Cold Fusion controversy?

So can we only wonder what did Dr. Mallove know and when did he know it?

American Nobel Laureate in Physics (1988) Leon M. Lederman is no proponent of research into radical forms of new energy; one might accurately call him a “pathological skeptic” based on at least one opinion he has voiced (see The God Particle, 1993, p.122). Nonetheless, he somehow senses that a physics revolution may be upon us. He said recently, “You can smell discovery in the air…The sense of imminent revolution is very strong.” (New York Times, November 11, 2003, p.D12). He is much more accurate than he can imagine, but not at all for reasons that he would readily accept! Perhaps he may be thinking of esoteric academic physics subjects such “string theory” or “cosmic dark energy,” but certainly not practical technologies based on radical new physics. Having the intellectual problems identified by physics Nobel Laureate P. W. Bridgman in the quotation above, Lederman has not been looking at a large body of research that will indeed revolutionize the foundations of physics and give us command of fantastic new forms of energy. Too bad for Lederman; and too bad for us all that he has not been paying attention. We could use the support of people like Lederman…if they would only come to their senses, that is, examine open-mindedly the validity of experimental data that challenges their cherished theories.
I hope you recognize that the late Professor Feshbach’s most unfortunate and ill-considered reaction was fundamentally unscientific. It reminds me of the Church leaders at the time of Galileo, who refused to look through Galileo’s telescope at the Moon or at Jupiter, because they “knew” that nothing new could be seen! Yes, many modern scientists are filled with catastrophic hubris; they have become in many ways mere “technicians of science,” and guardians of what amounts to a pernicious “Holy Writ.” Don’t bother me with the experimental evidence, my theory can tell me what is possible and what is not!
MORE ON THE MURDER OF GENE MALLOVE
JON RAPPOPORT www.nomorefakenews.com
MAY 16, 2004.
I have just finished consulting several sources about this terrible tragedy. Among the sources was Steven Krivit of New Energy Times who, like Gene, is an investigative journalist in the area of cold fusion and other energies.
Here is what I have gleaned so far.
No one knows, at the moment, any specific details which would contradict the sketch offered by police about Gene's murder.
Several recent developments, however, in the cold fusion arena make it impossible to ignore a scenario in which Gene was killed for political reasons.
As of about January, the DOD expressed a renewed interest in cold fusion. This interest could be (COULD be) related to the fact that one of the byproducts of the process is tritium, an element utilized in bomb production. To forward the making of large amounts of tritium would, of course, require major money and an expanded effort.
Large quantities of excess heat (energy) have been produced in many cold fusion experiments. DOD obviously runs on energy.
There has been talk lately of trying to create a weapon by directly employing the cold fusion process.
As to the idea that transformations from one element to another have been witnessed in cold fusion experiments (the alchemist's dream), this is true. However, the amounts of these transformed elements are, so far, very small and are not predictable, and the thought that one might reliably be able to turn various forms of uranium into the deadly U-235 for nuclear-bomb making appears to be far out on the horizon.
If the DOD is, in fact, showing a renewed interest in cold fusion, this could constitute a threat to the oil monopoly.
Gene was the most coherent and powerful voice on the planet for getting out the truth about cold fusion.
I have an unconfirmed report that Gene and Richard Hoagland were, in the next few weeks, going to present to members of Congress further evidence on the credibility of cold fusion.
I have been told that Gene, in cooperation with another cold fusion researcher (whose name I'll keep out of this story) had just made a breakthrough in the technology.
I have a report that a major article is due out soon in a national technical magazine that will present a much more favorable view of cold fusion than we have been treated to in the last decade. Gene was interviewed and consulted extensively for this article. It's also possible that this article will resurrect an issue (kept alive by Gene since 1990): a charge that MIT, Gene's former boss, employed fraudulent means to discredit cold fusion, while accepting large sums from the government to research hot fusion, a technology that has brought home pathetically few results.
If the killing of Gene Mallove was politically motivated, it would function as a warning to those scientists and others in the cold fusion field that they should scale back, shut up, and eat oil like everybody else.
Despite science-establishment and media efforts to reject cold fusion as a doorway into titanic amounts of energy, produced cheaply, for the whole planet, the research continues around the world. Over a hundred labs have obtained positive results (excess heat energy produced).
Silencing such results has been a major op.
Eugene Mallove was the cardinal voice in breaking the wall of silence. He will be greatly missed. But his work will not have gone in vain.

EUGENE MALLOVE MURDERED?
JON RAPPOPORT www.nomorefakenews.com
MAY 16, 2004.
Last night at the top of his show, Art Bell announced that Gene Mallove was murdered. I've found only an Internet post on this so far; no news outlets have picked it up.
I've interviewed Gene a number of times, on radio and for print articles. He has been the editor and publisher of Infinite Energy magazine for some time.
Gene worked in the public communications office at MIT when the discovery of cold fusion energy was made in Utah.
Gene witnessed the complete discrediting of cold fusion and, in part because he was so digusted at MIT's role in this, he quit his job and went on to write the best book on cold fusion ever done: FIRE FROM ICE.
Gene, in his book and magazine, has detailed the progress of cold fusion and its confirmation as a true source of energy at labs all over the world.
He has been one of the good guys---a very, very astute and talented proponent of cold fusion and other new energies. Years ago, he gave up what was surely going to be a very lucrative career and took a harder road to expose the truth. In the future, people are going to realize what they owe to Gene.
I hope that somehow the story of his murder is not true.
The Internet post states that he was killed in a property dispute and the police are treating it as a homicide.
GENE MALLOVE'S MURDER REPORTED BY AP

I'm sad to find that AP has now reported the murder of Gene Mallove:
Norwich police investigate murder of N.H. man
May 16, 2004, 9:11 AM EDT
NORWICH, Conn. -- Norwich police are investigating the killing of a science writer from Pembroke, New Hampshire who championed cold fusion.
The body of Dr. Eugene Mallove was found late Friday at a house in Norwich owned by his family.
Mallove, 56, died of injuries to his head and neck. The medical examiner has ruled his death a homicide.
Police said initial evidence indicates Mallove may have been assaulted during a robbery. Several items and his minivan were missing. The minivan was found early yesterday at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket.
Mallove, the former chief science writer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wrote several books, including one on cold fusion that was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
He was president of the Concord-based New Energy Foundation and editor of its magazine, "Infinite Energy."
end of article
I don't know, of course, who killed Gene or why. I do know he was the planet's major advocate of a form of energy that could revolutionize all our lives and the lives of future generations---to the dismay of some.

EXCELLENT BACKGROUNDER ON COLD FUSION
JON RAPPOPORT www.nomorefakenews.com
MAY 16, 2004.
In the wake of the murder of Eugene Mallove, the most powerful and articulate voice on the planet on behalf of cold fusion, I'm printing a brief introduction to a major, major report on cold fusion.
"THE 2004 COLD FUSION REPORT" by Steven Krivit and Nadine Winocur
Investigators with New Energy Times
Steven Krivit and Nadine Winocur have released the most up-to-date, comprehensive report on the fascinating 15-year sociopolitical history of cold fusion and its experimental progress. "The 2004 Cold Fusion Report," a 53-page compendium, is the outcome of a four-year investigation involving first-hand interviews with nearly every prominent cold fusion scientist around the world, as well as nearly all influential critics and opponents. The scientists report that cold fusion is real, with results that are robust, verifiable and reproducible. The end result is a highly compelling case for cold fusion as a legitimate science that offers real hope as a future alternative to fossil fuels.
On March 17, 2004, the U.S. Department of Energy confirmed that they are performing a new review of cold fusion. The decision was made subsequent to a meeting on Nov. 6, 2003, with several scientists who requested an evaluation of progress in the field. Dr. James F. Decker, deputy director of the Energy Department's science office, was quoted by The New York Times on March 25, 2004, as saying, "The scientists who came to me are from excellent institutions and have excellent credentials."
The Energy Department review is expected to decide whether government funding should be applied toward cold fusion research. "For advocates of cold fusion, the new review brings them to the cusp of vindication after years of dismissive ridicule," the New York Times said.
"The 2004 Cold Fusion Report" includes quotes from such scientists as Dr. Melvin Miles, former senior electrochemist of the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at China Lake, Calif., who, commenting on an eight-year series of U.S. Navy cold fusion experiments, concluded, "In our opinion, these [findings] provide compelling evidence that the [cold fusion effects] are real. This research area has the potential to provide the human race with a nearly unlimited new source of energy. It is possible that [cold fusion] will prove to be one of the most important scientific discoveries of this century."
The Report also cites a senior member of the technical staff at the U.S. government's Sandia National Laboratories, James Corey, who expressed at the September 2003 Energetic Materials Intelligence Symposium that "an overdue revolution in science will arrive, [and] the reputations of cold fusion scientists and those who revile them may be reversed."
Although 3,000 scientific papers have been written about cold fusion, progress is underreported in the scientific and popular media because of a rift between cold fusion researchers and the scientific establishment, which has refused in its journals to publish articles relating to cold fusion.
In a September 2003 article, science columnist Sharon Begley of the Wall Street Journal noted of this phenomenon, "the only thing pathological about cold fusion is the way the scientific establishment has treated it."
"The 2004 Cold Fusion Report" also includes evidence of the veracity of cold fusion in several previously unreleased documents:
A 1993 report to the Pentagon by former JASONS chairman Richard Garwin and by
chemistry professor Nathan Lewis of Caltech that supports the findings of "excess
heat," providing key evidence for the cold fusion effect. Four years earlier, Lewis
tried unsuccessfully to replicate the cold fusion effect and subsequently became one
of the most outspoken critics of cold fusion.
A 1991 report by chemistry professor Alan Bard of the University of Texas,
a vocal critic of cold fusion who confirmed the presence of "excess heat"
in an independent laboratory experiment at SRI International.
Two 1995 papers by scientists from Amoco Production Co. and Shell Research
reporting positive, unambiguous evidence from their own cold fusion experiments.
Part 1 of "The 2004 Cold Fusion Report" examines factors that led the scientific community to a premature rejection of the validity of cold fusion and explains why developments in cold fusion have gone virtually unreported. It reviews studies revealing that the early experiments conducted by prominent laboratories that were presumed to have debunked cold fusion were in fact seriously flawed.
Part 2 of the report discusses the current status of cold fusion research. It reviews advances over the past 15 years and identifies the major unanswered questions. The report concludes with a glimpse of possible future applications for cold fusion technology.
"The 2004 Cold Fusion Report" was reviewed for technical accuracy by two physicists with decades of experience in conventional fusion, one of whom has studied cold fusion, as well. The other, a skeptical plasma physicist who works for a major U.S. fusion research center, described the report as "correct, readable, even and unbiased, suitable for reaching physicists and educated people."
"The 2004 Cold Fusion Report" has garnered the following praise:
" Congratulations on the production of a very useful and readable report on Cold Fusion! This report fills an evident and urgent need to inform the scientific and lay public about this topic which has been so massively misrepresented in the literature. You have done sterling work on this."
- Dr. Martin Fleischmann [ 1989 co-discoverer of cold fusion, with Stanley Pons]
"This is very interesting for me, in part because of my continuing interest in neglected science, and in part because I used to work in electrochemistry and I knew Fleischmann & Pons. Several things in the report were new to me and look very promising indeed."
- Dr. Henry H. Bauer, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Scientific Exploration
"It would appear that the answer to the question 'Is Cold Fusion real?' is not the unambiguous 'no' that it is often assumed to be. In "The 2004 Cold Fusion Report", Krivit and Winocur detail the fascinating history of work in this field."
- Dr. Brian Josephson, 1973 Nobel Laureate in Physics
"This is a fine report. It is a work well done, the old-fashioned way, with hard work. I hope the world reads it -- it is well-written and powerful. I hope the world acts on it -- it is clear, concise and concrete."
- Dr. Michael Staker, materials scientist and research engineer for a major U.S. military research laboratory
"The report is very good - you are both to be commended. Lots of good analysis. It is hard to understand this field well enough to express its essence clearly and sensibly."
- Dr. Michael McKubre Director of the Energy Research Center at SRI International
"Krivit and Winocur have put the Cold Fusion field nicely into a nutshell. This report is a must for science reporters covering the field. Wish I had something like it when I started out."
- C.G. Beaudette, author of Excess Heat & Why Cold Fusion Research Prevailed.
"The New Energy Times report on cold fusion is a masterful work. Krivit and Winocur put the field into perspective, both historical and on the level of today's struggles to expand the worldview of energy science. They are to be commended for an excellent journalistic endeavor, for taking the time to interview a number of scientific authorities and for getting a balanced view."
-Jeane Manning, author of The Coming Energy Revolution and a forthcoming book on the New Energy Movement.
"'The 2004 Cold Fusion Report' has brought a wide variety of interesting and complex material together. It should be helpful for someone trying to understand what the arguing has been about."
- Dr. Michael Melich, senior research professor at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and former branch head of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory

Notice of Death of Stanley Meyer
While doing a search in DejaNews, I had seen a brief mention of this from the alt.conspiracy forum. However, based on past experience with such statements and the fact that it was a conspiracy forum, I chose not to act on it. Later, a couple of emails repeated the claim. Finally, Gene Mallove chose to call to see if there was any truth to the report. Here is his email. From: E.F. Mallove
Subject: Meyer IS dead
Date: Sunday, March 29, 1998
I just called the funeral home listed in the announcement of Meyer's death. I used directory information to get the number.
The gentleman there at Evans Funeral Home confirms that Meyer had indeed died and that there was a service there. I hope this ends speculation about the reality of Meyer's death.

http://www.infinite-energy.com In the Dejanews posts I saw from alt.conspiracy, mention was made that Stan had died of some kind of mysterious food poisoning.
It is sad to see the death of anyone before their time and Stanley Meyer made quite a splash during his years of work with water as a fuel. We here at KeelyNet extend our condolences to his family and friends.
No doubt, the conspiracy buffs will jump on this and blow it way out of proportion to the reality. I can only hope they rely on history rather than fanciful speculations stated as fact. I last spoke with Stan at the 1997 INE conference in Denver. At that time, he and I rode down together in the elevator and walked to the main conference room. At that time, he seemed in good health and full of energy.
I asked if he had driven or brought his hydrogen powered automobile, he said no, that it would have required too much logistics to arrange.
I said that it would be great to actually have the vehicle there for examination and demonstration by all at the conference. He said, yes, but it was still under development.
I asked whatever happened to the spark plug he had described back in 1994, which was supposed to let anyone install these plugs in their car so that it would also run on water. The idea being that water vapor was injected into the cylinders, exploded by a Keely type resonant frequency (42.8khz) and the products of that explosion burned by a high voltage spark.
He said that was still under development. Only this year, 1998, was I informed that this idea had been 'lifted' from Dale Pond at a 1989 conference in Switzerland and no credit given to Dale.
This has been posted before, but consider it a reality check as to what had been accomplished as opposed to what had been claimed, in an attempt to short circuit the inevitable conspiracy diatribes that will arise.
DRAWING OF STANLEY MEYERS HYDROGEN CELL
Everyone knows that hydrogen and oxygen can be split from water by the application of electricity across plates submerged in a container of water. This is called hydrolysis and it requires a lot of electrical energy to produce worthwhile volumes of gases. Not only is this process energy hungry but the gases produced are also very dangerous to store and they burn too rapidly to be of effective use as fuels.
Stanley Meyer has worked with these problems (1970's to 1991) and has invented devices that solve beyond expectation all of the related difficulties in harnessing water as a fuel. The knowledge developed by him is relatively easy to grasp and can be applied by anyone with electrical, handyman skills and a decently good home workshop.
In a nutshell,..... water will break into it's elemental parts when exposed to a specific electrical polarity and condition. The first trick is to modify the electrical input so that it resonates in synchronization with the water and it's cell. When the pulse train is at resonance and voltage high, a correctly set up cell consumes mear milli amps of power yet, water is rapidly converted to it elemental gases. When this gas mixture is mixed with air and noncombustible gases (exhaust gas) it will burn with a slow enough combustion rate to use as petrol substitution. Storage of the fuel gas is not required as the fuel is produced instantly on demand.
If these elemental gases are further exposed to excitement by the resonating stimulus of electrical fields and laser energy, intense thermal explosive energies will be released which are the result of entire molecular disintegration!!

Wired Magazine's Expose' of the Cold Fusion Scandal

Concord, NH - Wired Magazine, the high-tech journal of the digital age, takes a giant leap forward for truth in science journalism with its latest issue. Charles Platt's 18-page expose' article in the November 1998
Wired, "Dirty Science: The Strange Rebirth of Cold Fusion" makes it abundantly clear that the world very likely is facing an energy and scientific revolution of unprecedented scale. Infinite Energy magazine
initiated Platt's interest in the subject, as he recounts.
Platt also identifies one of the key problems for cold fusion, which is not the lack of results or significant publication, but the refusal of key opinion-molding science journals to publish scientific papers with rock-solid findings that are at odds with supposedly bullet-proof theories of modern physics and chemistry.
Platt faults science journalist Gary Taubes, who assaulted the reputations of scientists at Texas A&M University in 1990, and later in his negative book, with what quickly proved to be totally false allegations of fraud.
Platt discusses the work of scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and elsewhere that refute the allegations. When asked, Platt told Infinite Energy magazine that Taubes refused to allow his comments to Platt to be published.
Infinite Energy Magazine is proud to have contributed to the one of the best single journalistic accounts on the cold fusion scandal since the famous Fleischmann and Pons press conference at the University of Utah
on March 23, 1989. Infinite Energy's Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Eugene Mallove encouraged author Charles Platt to explore cold fusion and draw his own conclusions, and he did. Platt writes: "At most, the story of cold
fusion represents a colossal conspiracy of denial. At least, it is one of the strangest untold stories in 20th -century science." Of course, Infinite Energy magazine agrees with the first possibility, but readers of
Platt's seminal investigative report can decide for themselves.
To investigate the cold fusion scandal, Platt traveled to cold fusion companies and interviewed some of the hundreds of scientists who work in this field as heroes unsung by the general media, such as The New York
Times - which continues to act as though cold fusion science and technology do not exist. Platt attended the Seventh International Conference on Cold Fusion in Vancouver, British Columbia in April 1998 to see for himself whether cold fusion evidence is real, or whether hundreds of scientists are engaged in mass-delusion. It is unfortunate that other science journalists did not attend ICCF7, preferring as they do to follow the path of least resistance, which is to say - to do nothing. Perhaps after reading the expose' by Charles Platt, they will have second thoughts. But don't hold your breath!
