LENR - The Good News About Climate Change May 7, 2014 – By Steven B. Krivit –

On May 6, the U.S. Global Change Research Program released its Third National Climate Assessment, a comprehensive report on climate change and its impact in the United States. The news is not good.

But the good news is that interest in the potential of greenhouse-gas-free low-energy nuclear reaction-based energy alternatives will grow.

All indicators suggest that LENRs may offer a radiation- and emission-free nuclear energy source, pending further development and effective scale-up. As the price for pollution caused by carbon-based energy sources goes up, and as social awareness rises, so too will investment in LENRs. Click here to learn more about LENRs.

Nikkei Reports Mitsubishi to Use LENRs To Clean Nuclear Waste
April 24, 2014 – By Steven B. Krivit –

On April 8, 2014, Nikkei, the Japanese equivalent of the Wall Street Journal, reported that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Yokohama, Japan, plans to use low-energy nuclear reactions to clean nuclear waste. This patented LENR transmutation method was developed by Mitsubishi physicist Yasuhiro Iwamura.

New Energy Times has translated the Nikkei story below. We have also placed online a copy of a recent slide presentation from Iwamura and an updated European patent specification from the company.

The patent claims that the reactions occur not by fission or fusion, but by a two-step mechanism beginning with a weak interaction; a neutron is created and is followed by a neutron capture process. (Click here to see a related mechanism.)

New Energy Times will make available some of the source documents used in our Jan. 20, 2014, report "Federal Investigations Reveal Academic Backstabbing at Purdue University."

Today, we release pages from three documents obtained from the federal government in response to multiple Freedom of Information Act requests by New Energy Times.

The first page is a letter written by Lefteri Tsoukalas, the former head of the School of Nuclear Engineering at Purdue. The second page comes from the Department of Defense investigation of Holly Adams, at the time the inspector general for the Office of Naval Research and helps fill in some of the areas blacked out in the first document. The third page comes from another set of documents and helps identify some of the areas blacked out in the second document.

Jan. 21, 2014 – By Steven B. Krivit –

New Energy Times will make available some of the source documents used in our Jan. 20, 2014, “Federal Investigations Reveal Academic Backstabbing at Purdue University” report.

Today, we release the police report of the Aug. 28, 2008, incident in the Nuclear Engineering building. Darla Mize, the administrative assistant to head of the school, was threatened by Mamoru Iishi, a senior professor there.
