Exploring the New FIRE_The Mother Of All Black Swans
We're new here!Join us!
Hi Everyone, Thanks for reading about my group. My name is Mike Phalen. I am a self employed software developer near Vancouver, Wa. This is about a new discovery that I have been following since 2011. I would like to meet other people in the Portland area who are interested in discussing the implications and opportunities.
It is a controversial subject. Before telling you what it is I want to say a few things. If you are busy, just read this paragraph and the next. Here is why I am doing this: There are enough respected, qualified professionals involved with hands on experience with this device to make it very likely to be real. In this document I've organized the story starting with the most significant details and events. There are links to people and companies, they are all real and Google-able. I've tried to make it as effortless as possible to verify the information and realize what is going on. It is truly a story that seems too good to be true. Please keep this in mind: When the Wright Brothers came on the seen in the early 1900s they repeatedly heard scientists say that they refuse to waste their time looking into something that is known to be impossible. This discovery/invention has many parallels. Mainstream science will say it is impossible, but it is all changing rapidly now.
OK, here it is ---> A new type of nuclear reaction has been discovered. It is completely green, no radiation or emissions have been detected. It puts out a huge amount of energy, it runs on a very small amount of hydrogen, lithium and nickel powder (there could be other ingredients). The process is fairly simple. The reactor is called the E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer), It was invented by Andrea Rossi. The process is known as LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) or Cold Fusion or the Rossi Effect. The patent was finally issued in August, 2015
For those of you still with me the rest of this post is links to back up what I just said. There have been multiple third party tests performed recently by respected scientists, funded by real companies. The test results have been very positive.
This discovery means that we don't need power from coal, oil, nuclear, wind or the sun. Energy prices will drop considerably. The super cheap or free energy can be used to make a real effort to start cleaning up the planet. Eventually, this non polluting energy can be used to heat your home, power your car, create clean water and food for everyone.
The Lugano report is a report of a 32 day test of the reactor that ended April 2014. The report came out in Oct 2014. The report was funded by Elforsk a Swedish energy research institute. They are also one of the sites hosting the report. Unless you are a physicist you may not get much out of reading the report. It is a detailed scientific analysis of the power coming out of the device.. See this review (this link below also) of the report for an easier read. There where other tests in 2013 and 2012.
The scientists who authored the report risked their reputations by signing off on such a controversial claim. I have been following free energy claims for decades. I first found out about Rossi's discovery in 2011 when I watched the video below. This was the first time I had seen a real scientist give a controversial energy device a thumbs up. His name is Hanno Essen, he is an upper echelon Swedish physicist. He used to be the president of the Swedish Skeptics Society. He is one of the authors of the third party reports on the E-Cat.

Information on the 32 day test.
This is the video that first got my attention: Hanno Essen video, from 2011: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWoH0KfGvlk
Hanno is a real guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanno_Ess%C3%A9n
Another scientist who authored the report, Roland Pettersson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9sONzr2Gbw

The report is also published by the University of Bologna. Some of the authors are associated with the university: http://www.e-catworld.com/2014/11/10/lugano-report-now-published-in-univ-of-bolognas-ams-acta-digital-library/
----------------Who Purchased the E-Cat technology------------------
The company that has licensed the E-Cat technology for the US and China is Cherokee Fund: http://www.cherokeefund.com/team.htm
Tom Darden is CEO of Cherokee. This week, 4/13/2015, Tom spoke for the first time about his involvement with it. He is a very interesting guy: http://www.e-catworld.com/2015/04/14/tom-dardens-speech-on-lenr-at-iccf19/
Tom Darden CEO of the year at Research Triangle Park business journal : http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/print-edition/2015/05/29/ceo-of-the-year-tom-darden.html
Research Tom Darden, he is into cleaning up the planet: http://www.cherokeefund.com/bio/tdarden.htm
Bill McDonough is involved with it also. Also really into cleaning up the planet. Another very interesting guy : http://www.mcdonoughpartners.com/
---------------- There is a book about it -------------------
Mats Lewan is a Swedish technical reporter for NYteknik: http://www.nyteknik.se/ovrigt/redaktionen/mats_lewan/
He has been present at most of the tests and demonstrations. He wrote an excellent book about it: http://animpossibleinvention.com/
---------------- The online community -------------------
There are several sites following the story.
One of the most popular sites is E-catworld. E-catworld started back in 2011 shortly after the first publicly announced test. The admin Frank Acland has done an excellent job documenting this historically significant event: http://www.e-catworld.com/
This is a crowd source effort to document the LENR story. For the most part, the story started in 1989 when it was called cold fusion. There is an enormous amount of information about the story that still needs to be entered: http://kb.e-catworld.com/index.php?title=E-Cat_World_LENR_Knowledge_Base
The Martin Fleishmann Memorial Project is very active performing online science e-cat replications and helping to spread the word: https://www.facebook.com/MartinFleischmannMemorialProject http://www.quantumheat.org/index.php/en/
The inventor, Andrea Rossi, has a very active physics blog: http://www.rossilivecat.com/all.html
Cold Fusion Now. Another very active site: http://coldfusionnow.org/tag/michael-mckubre/
The Energy 2.0 Society is an organization dedicated to educating the public, online science replications and spreading the word: http://energy2point0.org/
LENR Cities, another organization spreading the word: http://lenr-cities.com/
Elforsk press release announcing that they are starting a LENR research branch: http://www.e-catworld.com/2014/06/01/elforsk-issues-statement-on-lenr/
If you google LENR MIT , LENR NASA , LENR Stanford Research Institute , LENR mitsubishi you will see that there is much more.
This is just the tip of the ice burg of a huge fascinating story that is still unfolding. Currently there is a prototype one megawatt plant in operation supplying industrial heat for an unnamed company. It has been in operation for since 2/2015. At the end of one year of operation they will announce it with a press release and a demonstration. http://www.e-catworld.com/2015/02/02/rossi-30000-components-make-up-1-mw-e-cat-plant/
It is basically a branch of science that has been suppressed. In 1989 there was a big buzz about cold fusion. Most labs couldn't replicate the claims and it got labeled junk science. Since '89 the one hundred or so researchers who kept with it have had international conferences almost every year. Many were ridiculed. There are many upset people who are positive that it has to be a scam because..... It is known to be impossible.
Currently there are several attempts to replicate it around the world, we are one of them. A couple replicators have been successful, there are many more replications still in the planning stage. If you have read all these links and would like to talk about it or get involved drop me a line.
Thanks for taking the time to read all this. Mike
