It seems to me that understanding LENR is not an easy task. Even more than this I am convinced that the 'sore' is very deep. We have to do a very great leap forward,something not less significant than Louis de Brogiie made in 1923 when he has proposed to consider the particles also as wave object attributing them a wave length. (LEONID URUTSKOEV)
The readers who have followed my "Radically re-thinking LENR" thread already know that due to the use of a false history and false identity oF LENR a very difficult tamed problem is converted in one almost intractable, wicked one. In my opinion, Leonid Urutskoev is also asking for a realistic vision of LENR.
The Obama Plan of stopping climate change could be a great opportunity for LENR to accomplish its mission and become the leading energy source of the future. IF a lot of IFs will be answered and managed well.
Some experts think that the Obama Plan is simply not feasible See as an example:
A fact-challenged clean energy plan
What, who, how can convince these experts that adding LENR the plan will be convertible in a pragmatic reality? Who can convince the President? It was already discussed what knows (actually thinks!) he about LENR,
Perhaps we have to learn from the story of an other VVVVIP, Bill Gates. He has visited the ENEA Laboratory where the most advanced Pd D LENR happens. We were informed that Bill Gates supports- gives money to the palladium based LENR- the gossip seems to come mainly from a company seling platinum metals. Should I make survey: how many of you, miraculously and instantly converted in billionaires will invest specifically in PdD LENR? I could have huge surprises.
OK, probably President Obama is not well informed about the possibilities of LENR;
who can inform him well? Not a rhetoric question and I have an answer, my personal opinion. No prisoner of a theory, of an experimental method, no believers in simplistic tricks or in mathematical manipulation. People able to make a Synthesis of a problem or of an field- and a synthesis is qualitatively more than a review. Nobody will ask me but my unique choice is LENRIA the scientific-industrial LENR organization with a vision of the LENR future. They, David Nagel and Steve Katinski
could convince the President to start a LENR Manhattan Plan, I think..
As the original Manhattan Plan this one will also imply high risks and the general level of trust in LENR is still low. Everything could be accelerated and reinforced if Rossi & IH accepts to deliver experimental certainties- a few perfect demos with complete heat balance (never say never- but he said), inviting the President to the 1MW plant,
communicating the daily and the global COP's from this plant now and not in February March next year, defining negative results. Not much philosophy in this and it could change a lot. It is a great deal at stake.
GOOD NEWS FROM AND FOR A DEAR FRIEND
I got good news from my friend Vlad Plesa from Vancouver , the owner of the 14+ years old bold and excellent new energy site http://www.zpenergy.com/
We have collaborated already from my web-search years and he has helped me a lot.
Vlad's bright son, Calin, very young then was able to solve even the nastiest IT problems, Now he is a scientist and has just published a remarkable paper- shown on the cover of the Physics Today magazine
I immediately remembered that in 1968 I have published a paper about the porosity characteristics of suspension polyvinylchloride; reading the paper co-authored by Calin, I was amazed by the huge progress made by Science during the last 50 years so perhaps we can hope that LENR will also start to move faster.
I wish Calin a stellar career in Science, next year he will move to a prestigious American university

Again thank you for your comments.
In a nutshell: when you burn a hydrocarbon ( therefore oil, coal, gas) you turn the organic C of the hydrocarbon into inorganic Carbon Dioxide. This is the excess we produce.
I agree perfectly with you on the fact that the Earth produces inorganic C and I have been in past strongly sceptic about the global warming as an effect of human activity, but the last studies and calculations have convinced me that human activity is not irrelevant. You are right saying that we have to adapt to new scenarios of surviving necessities, it is true that, independently from us, panta rei; but it is exactly for this reason that we have to invent technologies that help us to leverage our surviving chances . The integrals related to the increase of global warming in function of the increase of hydrocarbons burning are impressive. Maybe human activity is not the main cause of the global warming, but it is beyond any doubt among the causes, therefore to implant in the cultural DNA of mankind the necessity to reduce the burning of hydrocarbons is useful, even if maybe not absolutely resolutive. Obviously I can be wrong.

Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
Thank you: this confirms what I said of the President Barak Obama. Surely the E-Cats, if the tests on course will be positive, will help his policy.
