Nuclear cold fusion
Transcript of Nuclear cold fusion

Nuclear cold fusion... Theory?
Why we need it
Our problems, and why we need this
What could it do?
All of the possibilities...
A world where we have this type of energy
Millions of people use cars and electricity every day. Cars emit toxic gases into our atmosphere like: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Cities and cars run of of fossil fuels. These emissions cause the greenhouse effect. The earth gets hotter and hotter due to the amount of gasses we're pumping up there-resulting in global warming.
There are many proposed cold fusion theories, but they don't adequately explain all that goes on in this phenomenon. Like the sun, which undergoes nuclear fusion, nuclear cold fusion is a proposed type of nuclear reaction that would happen instead, at or around room temperature.
These two guys, Stanley Fleischmann and Martin Pons, did an experiment that under specific lab conditions in 1989 that gave off "anomalously" high amounts of energy. It reportedly gave off that much "excess heat" so much, that it could only be justifiable by a nuclear reaction.
How will we accomplish successfully achieving cold fusion?
The results of their experiment were never able to be replicated, and There is no accepted model for cold fusion. The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Took a look at cold fusion and decided that the evidence was not persuasive enough to tart a special program. They also descovered that Fleischmann and Pons had not detected nuclear reaction byproducts. Today only A small community of researchers continues to investigate cold fusion
Nuclear fusion is like the perfect energy source. It doesn't emit radioactive waste or greenhouse gasses. This, as it seems, could solve all of our energy problems, and global warming. There is a fusion facility (ITER) being built in southern France that is our leading hope for this type of energy. Also, recently at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California they have produced more energy in a reaction than they put into the fuel.
