Robert Duncan on Cold Fusion and the Scientific Method

Robert Duncan on Cold Fusion and the Scientific Method
Dr. Robert Duncan, vice chancellor for research at the University of Missouri, is one of the few American academics who has an open mind regarding the subject of cold fusion. He rose to fame in cold fusion circles when he was recruited by the CBS 60 Minutes show as an ‘honest broker’, an independent scientist with no skin in the game to look at some cold fusion claims. Duncan was selected on the recommendation of the American Physical Society because he was a recognized expert on measuring energy. After visiting an Israeli company, Energetics Technologies, and examining their cold fusion experimental results, Duncan came away convinced that anomolous excess heat was quite real.

 

A week following the airing of the 60 Minutes piece, Rob Duncan gave a presentation at the 2009 Missouri Energy Summit in which he talked about cold fusion and discussed how he felt it should be approached from the point of view of legitimate scientific inquiry. He discusses his involvement in the 60 minutes story, and what he observed when he visited Energetics Technologies in Israel. Duncan also talks about other experiments in which the excess heat effect has been observed.

Duncan remarks that he has faced criticism for his position on cold fusion and talks about one angry Ivy League professor who chastised him for being involved in the 60 Minutes story. Duncan states his position that, “the scientific method is a wonderful thing, in my opinion it’s time to stop growling at each other from separate sides of this issue and apply the scientific method to figure out what’s going on.”

In concluding his remarks, Duncan outlines the major lessons he has learned from his involvement in cold fusion research:

• There is a huge gap between new science discovery and useful engineered systems.
• Mass media needs to approach new discoveries in light of the above point (the media should not be overspeculative and create false expectations, but rather engage the public in the scientific process)
• Research funding needs to become less dependent on the common assumptions within the culture of scientific communities, and much more courageous and objective
• The scientific method is a wonderful thing. Use it always — no exceptions.

Revelation Of The Pyramids

Revelation Of The Pyramids
The Revelation Of The Pyramids takes an in depth look into one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Mystery has surrounded these epic structures for centuries with theories varying from the scientific to the bizarre. However with over thirty-seven years of in depth research taking in sites from China, Peru, Mexico and Egypt, one scientist has as at last managed first to understand and then to reveal what lies behind this greatest of archaeological mysteries: a message of paramount importance for all mankind, through time and space.

Sirius Disclosure

Sirius Disclosure
The Earth has been visited by advanced interstellar civilizations that can travel through other dimensions faster than the speed of light. They use energy propulsion systems that can bring us to a new era. Humans have also developed these systems but those in power have suppressed them in order to keep us at the mercy of fossil fuels. Sirius Disclosure is dedicated to the pursuit of those technologies. It is time for you to know.

IRREFUTABLE

IRREFUTABLE
Finding out who did 9/11 is NOT the secret they are trying to protect. The secret is so big that they would rather us believe it was done by a faction inside our government or even another government. Keeping us fighting over WHO did it and not looking at what was ACTUALLY done is the goal. Start knowing the TRUTH for yourself. Watch this in full and then GET THE BOOK! Dr. Judy Wood could not be better qualified to forensically and scientifically examine the evidence of the 9/11 attacks. The towers were turned to dust in mid air and were not destroyed using kinetic objects or weapons such as planes, bombs or nukes. The towers were processed with the weapon and turned to dust from within for a period before they collapsed. Watch steel turn to dust before your eyes.

UNACKNOWLEDGED

UNACKNOWLEDGED
'Unacknowledged' focuses on the historic files of the Disclosure Project and how UFO secrecy has been ruthlessly enforced-and why. The best evidence for extraterrestrial contact, dating back decades, is presented with direct top-secret witness testimony, documents and UFO footage, 80% of which has never been revealed anywhere else. The behind-the-scenes research and high-level meetings convened by Dr. Steven Greer will expose the degree of illegal, covert operations at the core of UFO secrecy. From briefings with the CIA Director, top Pentagon Generals and Admirals, to the briefing of President Obama via senior advisor John Podesta, chairman of the Hillary Clinton Campaign, we take the viewer behind the veil of secrecy and into the corridors of real power where the UFO secrets reside. The viewer will learn that a silent coup d'état has occurred dating back to the 1950s and that the Congress, the President and other world leaders have been sidelined by criminal elements within the military-industrial-financial complex.
