Michael McKubre is an electro-chemist who imagines, in 20 years, the creation of a clean nuclear battery. “For example, a laptop would come pre-charged with all of the energy that you would ever intend to use. You’re now decoupled from your charger and the wall socket,” he explained. (first third)

Richard Garwin worked on the hydrogen bomb and is prominent critic. He wants 100% reliability and producibility. (second third. reviewing the past and the criticism)

Rob Duncan, vice chancellor of research at the University of Missouri and an expert in measuring energy independently reviewed the work. It appears he went to the Energetics Technology lab in Israel. He doubted Cold Fusion when he was invited to review but came away believing that the effect is real but not understood in detail.

“If you ask me, is this going to have any impact on our energy policy, it’s impossible to say, because we don’t fundamentally understand the process yet. But to say, because we don’t fundamentally understand the process and that’s why we’re not going to study it, is like saying, ‘I’m too sick to go to the doctor,'” Duncan argued.
