A lot of interesting information I would love learn more about. Because of the name, this process has a bad rep as being conspiracy fodder, but the process that was shown in laboratories in multiple instances may not yet be able to be explained, but should not be discounted. Legitimate battles between renowned chemists and physicists.
Maybe unlikely idea, but it's nice to see "Scotty" for the l

"This DVD/film may have been the last creative output by James Doohan, who is famous as Scotty on the original Star Trek. It came out in 2005, and Doohan died shortly after. In it, he appears significantly older than in the Star Trek episodes, despite the heroic efforts of makeup. Still, those were almost 40 years ago. His narrative holds up well. No indication that he was at death's door.
The other attraction of this film is of course Arthur Clarke. Who is really showing his age. But he impressively keeps chugging along. You have to admire his fortitude and longevity in the film.
What about the actual scientific merits of cold fusion? The case made here is speculative but reasonable. Sure, a bit unlikely. But you are not listening to some New Age drivel. No woo woo hocus pocus. Both men make rational cases for the possibility. Citing hitherto unexplained experimental results. Where there are tantalising suggestions of an energy surplus or of trace isotopes resulting from fusion."
