Pons Preface to Biberian Fusion Book

Since the resurgence of cold fusion in the last few years one prominent figure who has stayed out of the spotlight is Stanley Pons.  After reaching almost household name status for a brief while in 1989, Pons keeps a very low profile these days, living in France.

Many have wondered what he thinks of the current state of affairs in a branch of scientific endeavor that he and Martin Fleischmann pioneered — and now there is something that can provide us with some indication.

Dr. Pons has recently written a preface to the book, La fusion dans tous ses états : Fusion Froide, ITER, Alchimie, Transmutations Biologiques… (Fusion in all its forms: Cold Fusion, ITER, Alchemy, Biological Transmutations …) by French nuclear engineer, Dr. Jean Paul Biberian.In the preface, Dr. Pons focuses mainly on his relationship and work with the author, but does touch briefly on the events that rocketed him first to stardom, and then to outcast status. His words indicate that he is still engaged in the field, and he seems to be satisfied with his own contribution.

Biberian's Book

I thank Dr. Biberian for permission to publish this preface.

    I remember the Cold Fusion discovery news started in 1979-1980 in all media including the American magazines “TIME” and “NEWSWEAK” much earlier than the year 1989(Dr.Stanely Pons).

    • TPBurnett

      Ramsy, you are off by 10 years

  • Babble

    I would not credit Dr. Pons for inventing cold fusion. I saw no one able to reproduce it so it was reasonably discredited. However, I would credit him for inspiring investigation that might lead to this new energy source (assuming we get the real thing from Mr. Rossi or someone).

    Dear Stefano:
    You understood right.
    I hope to be ready to start in February and to have in consolidated operation the plant in April.
    Same Wishes to you,
    Andrea Rossi

    • Gerrit

      in operation in february -> in operation in April.

      Hope to == could be later

  • georgehants

    Well can’t find anything interesting this morning, if the World had ended we would have lots to talk about but it seems for the time being things will stay just the same.
    Hopefully next Christmas there may be some good things to report about where we are all heading.
    If an age of Enlightenment was ever needed then now would seem a pretty good opertunity for things to improve.
    Merry Christmas and many Wishes for an Enlightened New Year.

    • Giuliano Bettini

      Well, I think we have at least one good thing to report about, I mean this one:

      Dear Luca Salvarani,
      Thank you, actually I will work also during these days, we are late with the deliveries.
      Merry Christmas to you and your Family!
      Andrea Rossi

      …..which is:
      “there are ongoing deliveries”.

    Breaking the law of physics no big deal. Here is a link to a video to ponder about in your holidays http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkB2g7ai2bs
    Happy everything

    • Gerrit

      Xmas is not over yet and I’m already done with pondering.

      It’s a mocking video response.

      What was your point again ?

      • Dickyaesta

        Ahhh, if you are that fast you might try to replicate it to keep you busy in stead of uttering wry comments on a light note

    • Chris

      An obvious buncha crap. Just had to LOL when I reached the title starting at 3:25 and from then on it gets increasingly hilarious.

      Just like the woman in the lab scene of “The Saints”; without seeing the entire movie I really can’t say if it’s meant to be in support or satirical. Anyway, humour doesn’t tell us what the facts are, one can only appreciate it and be amused.

    • Dickyaesta

      So this is not right?! I am a bit confused. I will try it myself when I have a bit of time, to see what and if anything really happens. Sorry if I wasted anybody’s time pondering……

      • Chris

        No doubt you could get the beer easily, but those electrodes look very elaborate and so you would need to make sure you’ve got every minute detail right to perfection, before rejecting the claim. Then again, perhaps you would need to know which beer the experimentor drank, perhaps even the year of production makes a huge difference… maybe a ’47 Chianti would be an adequate substitute, but try finding and buying it nowadays.

        I mean, to have the universe in a PET bottle is no mean feat. It can’t be too easy.

  • Brent Mosley

    Dr. Judy Wood has a video on her site showing the “vote” when they squashed this new science at a press confrence!

  • GreenWin

    “…I recall Professor Biberian’s (and my own) favorite quotation: ‘Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds,’ A Einstein.” Stanley Pons 2012

    Couldn’t be more concise and to the point.

  • Gérard2012

    Forgot archives with cold fusion or an old story we can see Mr Biberian, it must be in English.

    you can see Mr. Biberian forgotten archives in 6.56 minutes

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xcaoyn_les-archives-oubliees-fusion-froide_news#.UNcERm_8IVA

    in french

    Souvenez vous, les archives oublié avec la fusion froide, un vieux reportage ou on peut voir Mr Biberian a la minute 6.56. Le film doit exister en anglais.

  • Zaghlool

    Nice to have a free regenerative energy source.
    But it will much greater if scientists can find a way to make man lives for ever – No body deterioration !
    I am looking for such invention.

    • Ramsy

      Yes Zaghlool, That invention you looking for sure will be available but after you pass away.

      • mario

        Living for ever !!!

        We d’ ont need s…x animore ???

    • LittleKangaroo

      Yea, but where to put everyone? It will make the planet majorly overpopulated..

    Posted this on Former thread, Brought it forward.

    This may be something News worthy.

    A year ago Rossi went to Massachusetts. Visited with Bruce Tarr, MIT, University of Massachusetts among others. They discussed E-cat Manufacturing in the Area.

    It would appear that Rossi is in New Bedford, Massachusetts now. Dec. 22nd.
    I would say that this is a Hop, Skip & a Jump from Multiple Universities.
    But it’s just a Skip away from UMASS.

    • Chris

      Does MIT say anything about this on their own website?

      Dear John Di Rico:
      No, I am in Miami, I was joking about the “big fish” from the comment to which I answered: New Bedford, Ma, was the town of the whalers. Is the town Melville got the inspiration from, for his Moby Dick.
      Warm Regards,

            Appreciate the response.

  • CLAUZON

    Cher Jean-Paul,

    Après les commentaires très élogieux concernant Stanley et toi-même, je pense que tu n’auras pas besoin de beaucoup de publicité pour la diffusion de ton livre très attachant…

    Très amicalement Pierre

    I love the Mizuno type experiment Video.

    • http://www.liberationtechnology.co.uk Dave Lawton

      Mizuno device is no more or no less than the patented British 1970`s electrolytic cleaning device.Except the GB device was on a larger scale.

      Merry Christmas Dave

  • clovis
