US Military Preparing for Major Energy Shortage, LENR Could be Vital to National Defense
The United States military believes that a major energy shortage is imminent and is preparing for it. Recent news reports indicate that the Pentagon is quietly but hurriedly readying its bases to survive massive power outages. In other words the generals and admirals expect the lights to go out in the very near future.
The programs are being touted as green energy but the real purpose behind them is obvious. The military wants to keep its systems running when the lights start going out because of electricity and other energy shortages. The Post reported that the Army will spend $7 million to create a smart grid at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs to keep that base in operation in the event of electricity shortages.
The Army is also conducting research on the Stirling Engine which uses hot air to turn turbines at Fort Carson. Many observers have noted that LENR devices could easily be adapted to Stirling Engines. These are just the visible efforts there are also numerous behind the scenes military research projects going on.
These could include some LENR efforts such as Dennis Bushnell and Joseph Zawodny’s work at NASA. The Navy reportedly had some cold fusion research efforts that have reportedly ended. There have also been unconfirmed rumors that the Pentagon had purchased one of Andrea Rossi’s ecat LENR devices for testing. The military has also been interested in hot fusion. It helped finance some of Impulse Devices work on small scale hot fusion.
- The reason the military is interested in technologies like LENR is obvious. Modern armies, navies and air forces are in the energy business. They need energy to keep the ships, trucks, tanks, planes and helicopters moving. Without energy the modern American soldier has no real advantage over an illiterate peasant with a bolt action rifle. With a sufficient supply of energy a modern military can dominate
almost any battlefield.
The US military wants to preserve its war-fighting ability so it is concentrating on developing new sources of energy. It is obvious that low energy nuclear reaction is one of the most promising new energy sources out there.
It is also obvious that developing and perfecting LENR is vital to the defense of the United States and other democratic nations. Our modern militaries depend upon vast amounts of energy without that energy our militaries won’t work and we’ll be at the mercy of terrorists and dictators. Low energy nuclear reaction might be vital to maintaining security and peace in the future.
