Fusion as a source of energy has been a long-sought but never-achieved dream of the scientific establishment. The idea sounds simple enough: create cheap, limitless energy by the same processes that fuel the sun. The problem, however, is scale: how to reproduce the continual fusion of hydrogen atom nuclei in a reactor that is much, much smaller than the sun. This is the puzzle T. Kenneth Fowler describes in Fusion Quest, a book that argues passionately in favor of continued fusion research. Though there has yet been little success in the field, Fowler insists that so much progress has been made that fusion power will likely be possible within the next century. He spends most of the book explaining the challenges that face physicists in realizing this dream. The Fusion Quest is more technical than the average popular science book and will probably appeal more to those readers who have some background in physics and mathematics. ... Read more

Book Description

Offering the prospect of clean, safe, and unlimited energy, nuclear fusion has long been the shining hope for a world disastrously dependent on dwindling supplies of fossil fuels.Two generations of the brightest scientific minds and billions of dollars have been devoted to designing and building experimental reactors that mimic the unimaginably extreme temperatures and pressures needed to produce nuclear reactions akin to those that power the Sun and the stars.

Then, suddenly, in the spring of 1989, Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann, research chemists at the University of Utah, made an announcement that rocked the scientific world and made front-page news for months to follow.Their claim to have achieved nuclear fusion in a simple tabletop experiment and at room temperature defied sacrosanct conventional physical theories.And the scientific establishment would not take that challenge of cold fusion lying down.Within hours, even as the press was proclaiming a possible new era of unlimited clean energy, cries of disbelief and accusations of scientific misconduct and even fraud were heard from within professional circles.

Researchers in laboratories around the world mobilized in an unprecedented effort to explain Pons and Fleischmanns experiments. A mountain of confusing, seemingly contradictory results began to pile up.Soon, leading scientific journals were regularly publishing cold fusion obituaries, and bitter editorials questioning the methods and motives of the cold fusion pioneers.Cold fusion was dead. . . or was it?Almost unnoticed, a steadfast group of hundreds of optimistic researchers around the world continues to search for a solution to the tantalizing cold fusion enigma.

In Fire from Ice, astronautical engineer and well-known author, Eugene Mallove, sheds a new and very different light on the cold fusion confusion. Based on personal interviews with many of the people involved, as well as his firsthand experiences in laboratories and scientific conferences, he offers a unique insiders view of that divisive controversy, while at the same time clearly explaining the relevant science and technology.And Dr. Mallove convincingly argues that cold fusion may yet prove to be real.

A story of scientific ambition and professional rivalry, political intrigue and hard science, Fire from Ice is the fascinating account of one of the most intense and momentous scientific controversies of all time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read!
I am a Coast to Coast AM listener. I would like to have everyone read his book. It is remarkable. I think that the leaders of the world should all have a copy! I would also like to send my deepest prayers to the family of this beloved author, Eugene Mallove. He and his work will be greatly missed. Blessings to his family and friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this book!
I thought this was a great book. If you want an intriguing book about the controversial energy source of the future you must read this book. It is an excellent read!

1-0 out of 5 stars An example of wishful ideation ?
As far as style of thinking is concerned, Dr. Mallove is far closer to, e.g., creationists than to, e.g., Carl Sagan. He has let his intense messianic desire that cold fusion be a reality completely cloud his scientific judgement. The loony, physics-ignorant hordes of cold-fusion advocates include such worthies as a fellow in Australia who has sold kits of magnets and a ball-bearing which he has claimed will roll around a closed track forever with no visible means of propulsion. Dr. Mallove does not refute such garbage. In this reviewer's opinion he is either delusional or simply a con man on a par with Erich von Daniken or Whitley Strieber.

5-0 out of 5 stars Balanced treatment of a profound and overlooked discovery
Mallove has produced a fine documentary of the early days of the cold fusion controversy, which has developed into an underground science. Ignorance of this discovery will be viewed with the kind of curiosity that causes us to wonder why the discovery of the 'cat's wisker' transistor in the 20's did not lead to any kind of serious research effort for several decades in a world that desperately needs clean energy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a good book about cold fusion
Great boot about cold fusion. Mallove is not a crackpot that the cold fusion skeptics can throw under the rug. Gives the general picture about cold fusion and findings from "respected labs". Very good. ... Read more

Book Description

Shrader-Frechette looks at current U.S. government policy regardingthe nation's high-level radioactive waste both scientifically and ethically. What should be done with our nation's high-level radioactive waste, which willremain hazardous for thousands of years? This is one of the most pressingproblems faced by the nuclear power industry, and current U.S. government policyis to bury "radwastes" in specially designed deep repositories. K. S. Shrader-Frechette argues that this policy is profoundly misguided on bothscientific and ethical grounds. Scientificallybecause we cannot trust theprecision of 10,000-year predictions that promise containment of the waste.Ethicallybecause geological disposal ignores the rights of present and futuregenerations to equal treatment, due process, and free informed consent. Shrader-Frechette focuses her argument on the world's first proposed high-levelradioactive waste facility at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Analyzing a mass oftechnical literature, she demonstrates the weaknesses in the professional risk- assessors' arguments that claim the site is sufficiently safe for such a plan.We should postpone the question of geological disposal for at least a centuryand use monitored, retrievable, above-ground storage of the waste until then.Her message regarding radwaste is clear: what you can't see can hurt you. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars A grandly fabricated bood
This book does not make any reasonable arguements.Nor does it support it claims.I implore you not to purchase this book.It really is not good. Though, If you wish to read a bunch of fabrication, be my guest and buy this book.It is really quite absurd, the ideas that are pushed in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read that's full of info
If you ever wondered why we hear about the dangers of everything BUT nuclear power, this book is a good start.Nuclear power is the most arrogant, short-sighted idea in existence.Because of stupid decisions over the last 50 years, we now have to live with 50,000 years of radioactive waste.After you read it, weep, and call your elected official as the review below suggests, aplogize to your children for this leaving them this legacy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost 25 years later, more relevant than ever
The book is a must have for anyone who wants to know how we got into the mess called nuclear power and just how bad things are. FULL OF CONTENT, the book has document after document testifying to accidents, stupidity, and obfuscation by the nuclear priesthood. It's well written, well organized, and illustrated. Get this book, read it, and weep; then call your member of Congress.

Book Description

How is the future world energy demand to be met? The rates of use of the fossil fuels — coal, oil and natural gas — are increasing all over the world. The remaining stocks are finite and are not renewable. This important book considers the various options of renewable energy, including water energy, wind energy and biomass, solar thermal and solar photovoltaic energy. And should the nuclear option remain open? The book examines the environmental implications and economic viability of all fossil and renewable sources, introduces more distant future options of geothermal energy and nuclear fusion, and discusses a near-future energy strategy. ...
