Cold fusion is truly here! Rossi & Focardi’s are at the center of a modern day “Atlas Shrugged”
Andrea Rossi, a true modern day inventor (Ellis Wyatt) right out of “Atlas Shrugged” as portrayed in Ayn Rands Epic novel
These home based mini reactors capable of producing 1kw of energy for peanuts were recently unveiled by Andrea Rossi & Sergio Focardi on January 14, 2011 in Bologna, Itally. Currently they are building their first full scale reactor / energy plant in Greece. In a March 23, 2011 interview Rossi said that he believes a smaller unit should only cost about 2000 dollars per kw system. That is about 1/8 of the current cost of Solar systems and with material costs almost negligible (4oz of nickel powder per month) and (100 grams of hydrogen for 6 months!) This will surely out sell or at least force solar panel manufacturers to lower their heavily subsidized inflated prices. Rossi continued to explain how the system works –
“when the atomic nuclei of nickel and hydrogen are fused there is an extreme amount of energy! and the only by product is copper”
When naively asked about government help and subsidies in the interview to help get the technology to the masses – a libertarian sounding Rossi basicly said no way! “I have invested my entire fortune into this technology, so that I will owe no one. there will be no need for subsidizing” It almost seems as if Andrea Rossi listened to or instinctively understands what Ayn Rand preaches in her many novels – he is truly a modern day hero similar to Ellis wyatt the inventor from “Atlas Shrugged”
SRI’s primary worry as we look into the future will be regulations from our own government due to energy company lobbyist. This meddling by our energy companies has surely already begun. Rossi’s machines are actual “nuclear reactors” with lead shielding to protect the consumers. After the reactions are done, which were proven to be nuclear and not chemical -and the reactor is turned off there is absolutely no nuclear waste of any kind. The only by product is copper ore! Gotta Love it. Nuclear reactors, without any of the waste that is causing so many problems for Japan today. These can possibly be in almost every home in less than 5 years. But expect 20+ years if we allow our government to create monopoly’s as they almost always do. To quote Ayn Rand in the following video (part 3 of a 3 part series – 2m mark)
“Under a free system no one can acquire a monopoly on anything, if you look at economic history you will discover that all Monopolies have been established by government intervention, with franchises and subsidies, in free competition no one can corner the market on any product. History will support me.”
With Ayn Rand’s epic book “Atlas Shrugged” finally being created into a film, I believe this discovery of virtually free energy is the modern day equivilance of “Ellis Wyatt’s” role in Atlas shrugged. Andrea Rossi is the epitome of Ayn’s brilliant and libertarian hero.
The timeing of this discovery along with the film “Atlas Shrugged” is uncanny. Lets hope and pray for Rossi & Focardi as they battle their most critical foe’s. American & European governments. Go out and watch “Atlas Shrugged”
