"Cold Fusion" (aka Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, LENR) is not just for bozos anymore.
Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist, NASA Langley Research Center is not a bozo. I particularly found this quote amusing (emphasis added): "several labs have blown up studying LENR and windows have melted, indicating when the conditions are "right" prodigious amounts of energy can be produced and released."
The European Commission is not the home of bozos (start with page 23). Here's the money quote (emphasis added): "ENEA, SRI and NRL have been involved within review programs in the US and in Italy. The main task was to demonstrate, on the basis of signals well above the measurement uncertainties and with a cross check, the existence of the excess of heat production during electrochemical loading of deuterium in palladium cathodes. The target was achieved and the existence of the effect is no longer in doubt.".
If you want to spin up on the latest (with a positive spin), I'd spend 10 minutes on this:
The conspiracy side of me was amused by this bullet:
