I’m grateful to Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now for bringing my attention to this very interesting interview by John Maguire of the J.C.M. Blog with nuclear scientist Dr. Edmund Storms, formerly of the Los Alamos National Lab. It’s quite a long interview (50 minutes in total), but if you have the time, it’s well worth it to listen to the whole thing.
Dr. Storms has had a longstanding career investigating cold fusion and is still active in doing research in the field. In the interview he covers a number of topics, including discussion early palladium-deuterium experiments and more recent developments with nickel and hydrogen. He has developed is own theory about what is happening in LENR (See here for a discussion about his theory). Storms is fully convinced of the importance of cold fusion and believes that when fully developed it will be able to provide all the energy that anyone will ever need. He also discusses some of the political, cultural and ethical issues that will become important as cold fusion becomes more prominent.
I find Dr. Storms to be an intelligent, experienced and qualified person to help explain the importance of this field, and I think that this interview could stand as a good starting point for study for people who are looking for a good introduction to the topic.
