It’s crazy, don’t waste my time. It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing. I always said it was a good idea.

An Impossible Invention, An Energy Revolution That Might Change the World

Cold fusion is an energy source that could provide clean water to Planet Earth, zero-emission vehicles with unlimited mileage, a solution to the climate crisis and much more. It is clean, compact, simple, inexhaustible and . . . physically impossible.At least that is what science has considered since an infamous and rejected scientific claim in 1989.But in January 2011 the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi demonstrated a sloppily-wrapped device that boiled water with heat emanating from something that seemed to be cold fusion. Too good to be true, some said. Fraud, according to others. Journalist and futurist Mats Lewan tells the story about how he covered this energy invention since 2011.
