Prometeon’s Aldo Proia Looks to the East for LENR in 2014


Aldo Proia, Director of Prometeon, E-Cat Licensee for Italy has written an article which looks forward to 2014 as a year ‘Full of Surprises’. He notes some of the recent developments in LENR, and laments about opportunities missed for Italy. Here’s a Google/human translation of his message from the original Italian.

This year we are going to live in what could be the beginning of what may one day be remembered as one of the greatest revolutions of human civilization, comparable to those produced by a few other inventions: fire, printing, the steam engine, radio, and computer. Moreover, in the field of energy, the “new fire” has “the numbers” to overcome even such inventions as the atomic pile of Fermi and the nuclear reactors derived from it, since it can provide free and unlimited energy to man but without any of the drawbacks of nuclear energy: the pollution can be used to create deadly weapons.

Already five years ago, it was the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) American to point out, in an unclassified document, that LENR, once you have proved able to keep what they promised at the time remotely, would represent a revolutionary technology from potential to disruptive. And now the revolution of LENR starts spreading like wildfire. We will not make here a list of signs to that effect, but we will only mention the recent funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for LENR research projects, which represents a new and significant “first time”.

Among the countries that are lining up in the front row in qualifying for this revolution are a little surprising really, like China and Korea which, not having those influential lobbies which in the West hamper any serious alteration of the status quo in the energy field, and will be doubly benefited from adopting a technology for raw or almost like that of ‘E-Cat. Italy, already crippled by a crisis that seems more and more like the beginning of a long decline, lost a unique opportunity letting the invention of Rossi cross the ocean, and for this error of judgment could pay dearly.

It appears that Proia has been paying attention to news about both Cherokee/Industrial Heat (in reference to China) and Brillouin (South Korea), and makes the same point that we have discussed here at ECW — that command economies are able to adopt certain new technologies more quickly than those in many Western countries where competing lobbies can hamper implementation of technologies that could be widely beneficial. That’s not to say that command economies are are always superior, but they seem to be more efficient in certain circumstances.

Aldo Proia may well have more information about what is going on with regard to Rossi’s partnership agreement than we do, since he is apparently still a licensee of E-Cat sales for Italy. There have been times when Andrea Rossi has said that there would continue to be E-Cat R&D in Italy, but I haven’t seen any sign of that lately. I hope that Proia is able to help bring E-Cats into Italy soon, he has been waiting long enough.

    Proia confirms what I was thinking with this recent newsflow. When we shall be hearing about the use of this new energy source in China and such places, McCarthy and co. will jump up and decry it all as Communist propaganda that must at all cost be avoided. Yup, all the John Lennon’s have been singing and dancing about how the e-cat will soon and quickly end all wars, bringing peace and harmony to Mankind… LMAO

    • Sandy

      LENR technologies will not end all wars but it will make wars much less likely. International competition for energy resources (particularly petroleum) has been a major driver of warfare in the modern era. That competition will be greatly reduced when nations can, with LENR technologies, produce all of the energy that they could ever want to have. International censure and boycotts will be able to suppress warfare in most other cases. Unfortunately, the conflict between Palestinians and Zionists will continue to be a problem because the warfare between those two groups is driven by religion, racism, and greed.

      • Chris I

        Don’t tell me you seriously think it’s that simple.

        It’s amusing that you specify “in the modern era” and then mention Zionism as being the only war that will continue, because you don’t see how the first of these so plainly renders your argument inconclusive, then you seem unaware of how exactly you hit the nail on the head with the second. Zionism began way back when Adam and his seed left Ur according to the Covenant. The Middle East has been so central to the brunt of wars down through history, with basically the same core reasons as Zionism.

        Further to historic analysis, think mostly macroeconomics and ethology, then you might begin to get a glimpse of the real picture. If you don’t quite get there, try reading Orwell, Macchiavelli etc…

  • georgehants

    In the meanwhile perhaps some scientists will explain to us why some of the billions being pored into NASA is not used for the open research of Cold Fusion etc. as the academic fraternity, university’s etc. have totally failed in their responsibilities to society on the subject.

  • LucaS

    Exactly what I’we always been saying from at least 2 years: semicomunist and no free market countries such as Italy (I live here so I know the REAL situation, which is very different from the media chatters, which are almost all financed by state money.. not a cohincidence!) won’t get any advantage at all from the e-cat. It’s very very simple. My hope is that the US will be free from the current Obama’s crony capitalism, to say the best, and be able to get the full advantages of this marvelous technology.
    The same hope is for the great Germany, England, and other northern Europe advanced countries: stay away from Italy, Spain, France, Greece… and other third-world corrupted collapsing countries like us, and get full advantage from the e-cat. The sooner the better.

    • Fortyniner

      The UK’s path is temporarily blocked by the new and inexplicable enthusiasm among politicians for nuclear fission, even as the situation at Fukushima and in the Pacific Ocean gets worse by the day. The main proponent of this rush to build a herd of white elephants will almost certainly be gone in a year, and maybe a new look at energy will take place after that.

  • Charles

    My extremely conservative nature is screaming in despair, but my hopes for the advancement of mankind is pushing me toward the slash-bam-bang approach to the E-Cat.

    Put the “new Fire” out there, and take the bumps and bruises that will come. From what I have read, the worst case seems to be that the system simply melts down and perhaps even explodes, but in the process does not leave any damaging radiation or residue. A careful selection of applications that involve remoteness, means to avoid human deaths or damages, and backup by existing systems to keep operations going would be a good approach. Contracts with the potential users can surely prevent huge suits and such. But first, we kill all the lawyers. For instance, I live near one of the worlds greatest arsenal producers which was intentionally constructed in a very mountainous region and with revetments to send explosions upward. Over the past 80 years they have gotten the very nervous nitroglycerine system totally under control. I do not think E-Cat is remotelessly as dangerous.

    I am convinced that the promises of E-Cat are so great that a few colossal burps and fa-ts will not even slow it down.

    • Alan DeAngelis

      One thing is certain. Replacing a conventional furnace with
      an E-Cat would eliminate the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    • Fortyniner

      I agree, and I am beginning to think that due to the involvement of China that something along these lines may take place, despite the (slowly disintegrating) Western media blackout, hidden machinations of vested interests and the unvarying stupidity and widespread corruption of politicians. It won’t happen overnight, but there seems to be a reasonable chance of a ‘critical mass’ of knowledge accumulating in public awareness some time in the next few years that might precipitate massive worldwide changes for the better – despite all opposition and attempts to control the introduction of old fusion.

      Two things could stop this:

      1) Politically inspired takeover and control of the internet under the pretexts that are already evident – copyright protection, porn blocking, ‘national security’ and so on. In effect this would be a continuation of the current news blackout, but of course far more effective. This is a real danger and everyone who values the freedom to exchange information unfiltered needs to be on their guard against seemingly harmless moves towards the introduction of State blocking of websites that are not ‘approved’.

      2) Recognition of cold fusion at government level, followed by
      legislation to include any development of CF under the same restrictions
      that apply to nuclear fission. An unfortunate ‘incident’ at a CF development site could provide the justification for such a move. Apart from campaigning against such legislation, and
      voting out of government the politicians responsible (after the fact
      unfortunately) there is actually little that could be done about this
      possibility. If successful, then of course CF will remain behind locked
      doors for a generation or more.

      • Pekka Janhunen

        I don’t think (2) is realistic because without understanding it physically, CF is not possible to define in the legal sense. It is in all likelihood impossible to draw legally precise boundaries for the phenomenon even if one would understand it physically.

        • Fortyniner

          That’s true, but I’m not sure a technical definition would be necessary for enforcement – a legal definition is more likely to consist of a superficial description of the function of what is to be banned, as currently applied to the terms ‘firearm’ or ‘explosive’ for instance, or to the manufacture of drugs or nerve agents.

          Such a broad-brush ‘definition’ could for instance simply be something along the lines of:
          ‘construction or possession of a reactor or apparatus containing a metal or metals and hydrogen or a hydrogen source, and designed to give rise to an exothermic process of the type variously known as ‘cold fusion’ or ‘low energy nuclear reaction’ ‘

      • GreenWin

        Peter, number 1) is already in full bloom with regard to politically correct items such as climate. This link demonstrates how 40 of 41 media stories on the climate expedition frozen in ultra-cold Antarctic summer — never mention climate! http://newsbusters.org/blogs/mike-ciandella/2014/01/02/frozen-out-98-stories-ignore-ice-bound-ship-was-global-warming-missi

        • Fortyniner

          Strange that, isn’t it! The reason for the expedition wasn’t even mentioned on the BBC news. There was some slight emphasis on the irony that it was an icebreaker that was trapped in ice, but the extreme irony of a bunch of ‘warmists’ being stuck in ice that shouldn’t (according to them) be there seemed to escape the hacks entirely.

          Sometimes you have to wonder how such all-encompassing fine control of ‘blackisted’ topics such as CF, globalist cabals such as the Bilderberg group, and chemtrails/geoengineering actually operates on an individual level. By and large, media people seem to act almost as if they are in fear of their lives IRO these areas – why do so few ever kick over the traces, even when they are leaving the profession?

          • georgehants

            As the glaciers are covering New York and London in the coming ice-age, the scientists will be writing reports telling us that it is caused by Global Warming.

            • GreenWin

              Hello George. Yes it is very interesting to watch the climate gang try to weasel away from the data. “Polar vortex, slow jet stream” indeed! US/UK taxpayers have coughed up billions trying to get other nations to believe in climate models. All have failed. But the taxpayers’ purse is appreciably lighter.

            • Omega Z

              George

              The U.S. Media has already blamed the cold snap on Global Warming.
              Err I Mean Climate Change.

              I can see Archeologists chipping them out of the Ice a 1000 years from now & they’ll be clutching a sign proclaiming, It was caused by Global Warming.

    • Frechette

      Right, and as long as it isn’t you or one of your loved ones that doesn’t get “evaporated” as you so nicely put it.

      • Charles

        That’s exactly what happened Frechette. No trace of them was ever found.

  • georgehants

    Christina, I agree with helping those less fortunate is most important, including the millions in the U.K. and America living on food handouts etc. which is crazy as basic food productivity has not dropped or even threatened.
    Such unjust shortages are of course caused entirely because capitalism demands an unequal society, so that the rich and powerful can remain rich and powerful, while many suffer.
    I don’t quite follow, are you saying that shooting down UFO’s is a good thing.
    I would need have a very good justification for such action as any possible aliens are surely to be treated with more respect.
    The space race was a time when things where achieved, now billions are just wasted keeping sciences welfare system going by making out that sending a toy truck to Mars etc. is some great achievement.

    • kdk

      I think the waste came from keeping the lid on it too long, or trying to hold it back maybe a little too much.

      I do think it is important for us to continue to develop our own technology. Who knows what we may stumble across that others haven’t?

    • Omega Z

      George

      Multiple personnel reported they have tried to shoot down UFO’s.
      U.S., Russia, & others.
      They didn’t shoot back.
      Conclusion. They must be friendly… :)

      Aliens reporting home.
      Imperial Commander.
      With all our demonstrations of superior technology, They still shoot at us.
      Conclusion. Intelligence is not their strong point.
      Recommend we abort attempts of interstellar relations.

      This Zone has been declared clear for the interstellar highway as to our EPA requirements not to harm Intelligent lifeforms.

  • Marc Ellenbroek

    It is also interesting to read that Aldo’s analysis includes also his competitors. I hope he is right and that this year will be the year of LENR. I am sure that while knowledge is ‘escaping’ to the east, the decision-makers in the democracies will change their strategy and allow LENR to blossom soon.

  • Pekka Janhunen

    A command economy with good leadership can work better than a democracy in cases where success depends on rapid decisions. On the other hand a working democracy is good at distributing wealth. In LENR we are now living the rapid decision phase. The wealth distribution phase comes afterwards.

    • Frechette

      “a working democracy is good at distributing wealth”
      I guess we don’t have such a thing in the US.

      • Fortyniner

        …nor in the UK.

  • bfast

    “Perhaps then the powers that be will be humble enough to let the E-Cat help the poor 2 or 4 billion people and then slowly be absorbed into the U.S. and Europe as oil, gas, and other fossil fuels are slowly phased out so as to not put people out of work”

    I agree with your initial analysis that China, Korea, India may take the lead on LENR technology. However, once it is commercially available, no power in the world will allow it to be “slowly absorbed”. It will come in like a runaway freight train. Along the way will be more than a few train wrecks. Once the dust has settled (about 20 years from when the thing goes commercial) we will discover that we are all better off on average. (Don’t know if Saudi Arabia will agree.)

    • georgehants

      bfast, you say “are slowly phased out so as to not put people out of work”
      If an economic system does not have at it’s core the policy of getting as many people out of work and share the remaining work fairly then it is clearly corrupt, incompetent or crazy.
      What the hell is the point of technology and science etc. if not to lighten the work load for all.
      So many people are seemingly taken-in by the capitalistic imposed myth that people must work, fear unemployment and paying their mortgages, bills etc.

    It’s extremely likely Aldo gets some of his info here at ECW…
    If ECW isn’t the #1 site of choice, It’s in the top 2 or 3.
    And Even if one has another site they Prefer,
    ECW is a definite must visit daily. Likely from all sides.

      I agree that it looks like that, but want to add that I don’t find that a pleasant thought. It indicates that Proia does not get information from Rossi, and cannot count himself as a trusted inner circle participant.

      • Omega Z

        I would suspect that Aldo does some follow with others who have some association with Rossi.
        Or does his due diligence. He don’t seem to be the fool.
