Cheap clean power from cold fusion - perhaps.
Scientists at the American governments Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Michigan claim they have reproducible experiments showing they can exhibit signs of nuclear fusion at room temperatures, rather than the
extreme temperatures and pressures 'used' by stars to generate energy.
If it were true, it would cause the biggest revolution in the history of mankind. It would also
damage the US dollar, the auto industry and make the middle East oil fields a non-issue (almost).
So don't hold your breath, the character asassination perpetrated on two once respectable scientists in the
1980's (Pons and Fleischmann) say 'BEWARE BIG BUSINESS, THE US GOVERNMENT and the US DOLLAR'
