Directory of Cold Fusion or LENR resources and technologies. Note, the term "Cold Fusion" is most likely not a good terminology for what is likely happening in these reactions. It is not "fusion". It is probably transmutation. Most likely some kind of nuclear phenomenon.

Also known as
- Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR).
- Anomylous Heat phenomenon
- Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions (LANR)
- Condensed Matter Nuclear State Physics (CMNS)
- Solid State Nuclear Reactions, Lattice Enabled

Note that "fusion" is most likely an inaccurate descriptor. While it is probably a nuclear event, such as transmutation, it is most likely not "fusion".

"Cold fusion has been [roughly] reproduced roughly 17,000 times according to an estimate published by the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences." -- Jed Rothwell, LENR-CANR.org, Jan. 19, 2011

    Technology Forecast: Worldwide Research on Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions Increasing and Gaining Acceptance (pdf) - U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency report on cold fusion from November 13, 2009 has been unclassified. "Scientists worldwide have been quietly investigating low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) for the past 20 years. Researchers in this controversial field are now claiming paradigm-shifting results, including generation of large amounts of excess heat, nuclear activity and transmutation of elements. Although no current theory exists to explain all the reported phenomena, some scientists now believe quantum-level nuclear reactions may be occurring. DIA assesses with high confidence that if LENR can produce nuclear-origin energy at room temperatures, this disruptive technology could revolutionize energy production and storage, since nuclear reactions release millions of times more energy per unit mass than do any known chemical fuel."

    No fear of radiation from cold fusion - Today’s nuclear fission reactors are more than a poor choice for a primary energy source because of the growing risk of contamination by radioactive materials. Humans are not ready to take the responsibility for disaster that could last for geological time.... Why go down this path when there exists an alternative ultra-clean nuclear power? Low-energy nuclear reactions LENR.... (Cold Fusion Now; April 3, 2011)

    Breakdown to Breakthrough is Possible Now - Astronaut and Professor Brian O'Leary says that burning uranium and hydrocarbons is very, very bad for our health and the environment, and is utterly unnecessary. Clean breakthrough energy is on its way with the Rossi Cold Fusion Energy Catalyzer likely to come first. (PESN; March 25, 2011)

    Q&A with Douglas R. McAllister: Mayor Pro-tem and Cold Fusion Author - Douglas R. McAllister is the Mayor Pro-tem of Murrieta, California, but he’s also the author of a novel with cold fusion technology at the center of the plot. Regarding the cover, he said: "It sits in a sea of oil representing the ‘context’ out of which successful Cold Fusion technology would proceed to change the world." (Cold Fusion Now; July 1, 2011)
