GLENN: I have to tell you this is one of Stu's favorite stories today in science. This is your favorite science story, Stu?
STU: It is. I love this story.
GLENN: Do you remember cold Fusion? 20 years ago two scientists held a press conference to show the world that they have discovered a nuclear reaction that they could produce in a tabletop experiment. Remember? What does this mean? Nothing much except eventually getting unlimited, safe, close to free energy done with electricity, palladium, one of my favorite alladiums, and seawater. Basically when you put a certain amount of electricity in, it actually generates excess heat meaning it's producing more energy than you are putting in. Huge scientific discovery, was on the cover of magazines and newspapers everywhere. Aren't these guys from Utah or something in yeah, I remember this. Unfortunately the two scientists who discovered it were quickly discovered to be total and complete frauds. The other scientist couldn't replicate their experiments. The media, the scientific community turned on them because of their incredibly irresponsible actions, their work was called fraudulent, sloppy, unethical, unreproducible and inaccurate. The two scientists, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons were two of the most credible in the world before the incident. They later move d to France in obscurity, while sticking to their guns the entire time. Do you believe these idiots? The scientific consensus said the idea of cold Fusion was impossible, yet these two morons, they said they did it once. They wouldn't give up. They are not real scientists. Oh, yeah, by the way, in completely unrelated news 60 Minutes reported this weekend that scientists from around the world are now producing excess heat in tabletop experiments including electricity, seawater and palladium. Again, my favorite alladium. Eventually scientists believe that they could produce unlimited, safe, close to free energy. Wow. What a concept. 60 minutes had the head of the television of American physical society recommend an independent world renowned scientist to go to Israel and hand check every aspect of one of the experiments. Before he went, he didn't believe that cold Fusion was possible. Now he does. In fact, he believes the results of the new experiments are accurate. Oh, yeah, he's not the only one. 60 Minutes obtained an internal memo from DARPA. These are the biggest thinkers in the world that were for the Pentagon. Their memo says, "There is no doubt that excess heat is produced in these experiments." I am so glad that the scientific experts enforce their scientific consensus 20 years ago, aren't you? I mean, maybe if they weren't deny grating and making fun of the scientists back then, they could have tried to learn and improve on the process. We would have, you know, we would have had cheap unlimited carbon free energy today and we wouldn't have to worry about spending trillions of dollars on global warming. See, the silly logic is about as crazy as saying cold fusion is possible.
