How LENR will Improve Life for the Average Family
The widespread utilization of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) or cold fusion will significantly lower the cost of living for the average family. This of course will greatly improve the lifestyle of the average family.
The average American family spends around $1,000 a year on heating costs according to the US Energy Information Administration. If use of an LENR heating device were to cut that in half the family would have an extra $500 in income a year. If it were to cut that cost by 75% it would give the family an extra $750 in income a year.
The average American family spent around $4,155 on gasoline in 2011. Therefore if you could replace gasoline powered cars with LENR-powered cars or electric cars run on juice created with cold fusion you could give the average family a $4,155 boost in income. Even if the LENR electricity cost just one third less than electricity that would still be a significant boost in income.
The average family also spends around $1,000 a year on electricity from the grid. If the average family could install an LENR device to produce most of its electricity it could give the family another $1,000 in additional income.
Obviously this would be a huge boost to the economy because average people would have more spending money. They’d have more money to spend on a wide variety of things ranging from vacations to cars.
Beyond giving the family more income LENR could also reduce the cost of many things it buys. For example if big retailers like Wal-Mart, Costco, Target and Kroger’s were able to heat their stores with LENR they’d be able to cut costs. The stores would pass at least some of those savings onto customers in the form of lower prices for the products that they sell. That would mean lower costs on things like food, clothing and cleaning products.
If LENR could be used to power the trains and trucks that haul those products to the stores it would create even more savings that could be passed onto consumers. Cold fusion could also be used in food processing and a wide variety of manufacturing products including that for plastic. That would mean lower grocery bills for families.
Even if individual LENR generators couldn’t be installed in homes, LENR power plants on the grid would be far cheaper to operate than conventional nuclear plants or those that burn coal or natural gas. Since cold fusion power plants wouldn’t require fuel and an infrastructure to haul fuel to them they’d have lower costs. After utilities paid for the new plants they might be able to pass the savings onto customers in the form of lower utility bills.
Something else LENR could do is reduce the cost of gasoline because it could be used to power refineries and next generation oil extraction methods such as those used in the tar sands up in Alberta. Even if it were to reduce gasoline costs by just 10% that would be an income boost for the average family.
Lower heating costs, lower electricity bills or no electricity bill, lower transportation costs and lower grocery prices are things that average families desperately need. American families are hurting right now around 15% of Americans or 46.37 million people are on food stamps right now. If we could lower costs for electricity and transportation many of those people would get off the program.
More importantly all the additional spending created by the income boost LENR would give the average family would stimulate the economy. It would produce an economic boom rivaling that in the 1990s and that boom would create millions or tens of millions of new jobs. Families would have more opportunities, more money and a far better lifestyle.
More people would be able to buy things like cars and homes or pay for college for their kids. LENR would enable large numbers of Americans to enter or reenter the Middle Class. It’d also give a huge boost to the stock market which would increase the amount of money available to Americans for retirement.
Since it’s obvious that cold fusion could be the best thing for the economy and average families. It’s also obvious that governments in the United States and other countries need to devote far more money to LENR research. The potential economic benefits to average families from this technology are just too great to ignore.
