The fact that not only news media in general, but also various elected officials and government agencies are deafeningly silent on the subject of LENR, is the very loud elephant in the room.
Consider the following little scenario:
In daily national security briefings along with high-level and quite secret meetings held at both the White House, and Pentagon, the growing reality of LENR breakthroughs has become an issue of extreme concern and debate. This new energy source, now a well-documented and verifiable fact, is a vastly complex issue for the President to direct and manage. The first, and obvious, perception of the LENR breakthrough is that in one massive transformation the US dependence on foreign oil supplies is solved, the unstoppable release of CO2 and other gasses into the atmosphere is brought well within safe limits, the financial doldrums affecting the US and world markets is alleviated by the many new manufacturing and social possibilities made viable by cheap, safe and abundant energy. That’s the good news.
Quickly Think Tanks and other experts in various fields come forth with dire predictions of financial and social instabilities unleashed by the rollout of this life changing technology. The wealthiest 0.1% of Americans have an unshakable commitment to stability. They have no place to go but down in the massive financial shakeups which would be inevitable should LENR be developed and distributed in the most rapid possible scenario. The President is acutely aware that our political system is directly controlled by this established and conservative wealth, or at least marches in lockstep with it. Until ownership and control of this technology can be firmly established by these ultra rich individuals, the President is put under immense pressure to slow down or stop the advent of the LENR age in any manner possible.
Worse still, the military industrial complex sees immediately that regardless of whether the new energy source can be used directly as a game changing weapon or not, it’s use as a power supply for anything from tanks to aerial drones, to aircraft carriers and submarines would produce an unimaginable superiority for the nation deploying it first. Water supply for troops in the desert, air conditioning, no fuel convoys, self-sufficient small units, and even individual special forces and new surveillance techniques, the possibilities are endless. And here to, with the American hegemony in military affairs being its single largest global asset, the drive for stability and an unshifting balance is relentless. The military industrial complex will require several years to develop and deploy the first generation of a military so equipped. Whereas it would seem unlikely to stuff this particular genie back into the bottle, it is clear that delaying the development of LENR capability in the public eye could and should be delayed for as long as possible to preserve the US preeminent military position. Of course, it is clear that other governments and militaries will be highly likely to embark on similar programs once the reality of LENR and its consequences are perceived, so it must be treated as a new “arms race.”
The President asks for an action plan, the intent of which is to impede the development of LENR technology long enough to allow time for the US military establishment to achieve a significant generational lead in the development and deployment of LENR systems, and the establishment of a legal and financial scenario under which social order is protected and preserved. In the end, the President is convinced that by delaying the true extent of the LENR breakthrough from becoming public, the situation can be tidied up and managed in such a way as to achieve those goals while at the same time gradual and controlled development of the public’s perception of LENR can lead to a safe and orderly deployment into the public sector, thus achieving the desirable results of the breakthrough, albeit somewhat delayed. Calculations of the costs/benefits of various scenarios are considered. Immediate rollout, a one to three year delay, a ten year delay etc. The president, being a political man, sees the middle ground of a one to three year delay as prudent, but also would ensures that he and his party can take full credit for this “boon to all mankind”.
I have great sympathy for the quandary presented by the above scenario. I do believe that something like it is in fact what has been going on. Imagine the difficulty of deciding to allow the rapid deployment of LENR devices, with all the benefits, yet with all the drawbacks, at least as seen by you and your constituents. Not an easy set of decisions to make!
I, however, believe there is a great need for developing LENR technology as rapidly as possible. Further, I think that it is of great importance that the established, rigid hierarchy running this country, and much of the world, be shaken up not only for our good but for their own good. This static, stratified social and financial milieu is exactly the environment which led to the collapse of every empire before now. It simply must be broken up, without destroying the vessel in which it resides!
How do they go about slowing the rollout down? Damage has already been done by semi-maverick groups at SPAWAR and NASA, but you use standard disinformation and public relations techniques to drift them out of the public eye. Use moles to discredit and marginalize their results. Isolate Rossi, and either buy him off, scare him off or discredit him. Same goes for Defkalion; just make it so they peter out and drift away or crash and burn loudly and publicly. Dr. Ahern was making presentations in Washington last month. I never heard to who or why? Was there any public awareness of such talks? Where is Dr. Miley? In October at the World Green Symposium he was talking about nearing commercialization with his device. By December there was word that his research group was breaking up due to lack of funding and graduate assistants moving on with their lives. In the NASA video of January 12, Dr. Zawodny, states NASA’s involvement in developing this technology and sounds quite optimistic about its future. A day or two later he writes a blog post that pretty much contradicts the tone of the video of just a few days previous. Rossi spent nearly a year touting his 1MW plant and gives every indication that testing began in October of 2010. Within weeks of the test, he announces the testing will be private for all intents and purposes and there are indications that the customer is a military entity. LENR research at the U.S. Navy’s SPAWAR is apparently discontinued shortly after a 3-year-old, but relatively obscure, video of its researchers espousing this technology is unearthed and publicized across the Internet.
One thing that is clear to me at this point is that large pieces are moving on the LENR chessboard. This is only one of many possible scenarios which could possibly tie together a number of baffling events (at least to me) in the unfolding LENR story. In my thinking about the LENR games now entering the “mid-game.” I have come to realize that I now pretty much discount Andrea Rossi and Defkalion. If they “pop” tomorrow with a home toaster that can brown your bread using a power cell the size of a toothpick, all my concerns and agony in all this would come to an abrupt end. But counting on them, putting all our eggs in that one (well, two) basket(s) is just too fragile. The strong, and to me, convincing evidence of the reality of LENR heat generation just makes it too foolish to follow them into glory or oblivion. They remind me of “Peter the Hermit” who lead the first Crusade, consisting of peasants and drifters, off to conquer the Holy Land in the name of God and, not surprisingly, in the end, to their complete annihilation. I’m sorry Mr. Rossi (in the odd possibility that you read any of this,) but you are marching ahead too far, too fast and with too little substance to long keep the LENR community entranced. And to others who will read this, please share your concept of what might be a unifying theme which explains this whole insanity, with the hermit blasting ahead on what seems more and more like fumes, and the rest, the credible community of researchers, drifting away like the leaves of late autumn.
