It bears mentioning that there is a history of new science being put down and discredited, only to have it proven true. Nikola Tesla was told that alternating current would break the laws of nature and was therefore impossible. But today, the world is powered by alternating current. And we all know what happened to Copernicus and Galileo. This appears to be the latest round of something new that threatens our understanding of the world (not to mention the oil-based power structure) and is therefore looked upon with a high level of skepticism. But to those who take the time to investigate, cold fusion continues to show promise as an alternative energy source.
