Welcome to CoolFusion.org, the web site launched in conjunction with the publication of Cool Fusion, a new book by Edward Esko and
Alex Jack (Amber Waves Press, 2011).

According to present day science, elements cannot be changed into one another except under special nuclear or stellar conditions. However, as the experiments described in this book show, common, ordinary everyday elements such as carbon (for example, from plants or wood) and silicon (from beach sand) can be transformed into iron, copper, titanium, palladium, and other industrial metals under kitchen tabletop conditions.
The roots of this new technology go back to ancient alchemy in East and West and the quests of Copernicus, Newton, Galileo, and other seminal Renaissance and Enlightenment thinkers. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Sir Norman Lockyer and Sir William Ramsay, two leading British chemists, carried out pioneer work in transmutation. In the 1960s, French biochemist Louis Kervran, Japanese educator George Ohsawa, and American-based macrobiotic teacher Michio Kushi converted carbon into iron in a classic experiment that was replicated in university and corporate laboratories in India, Japan, and the United States.
In 2005, Edward Esko, Alex Jack, and Woodward Johnson formed Quantum Rabbit LLC, a small Massachusetts-based company, to continue experiments in this field. Cool Fusion describes the results of about 25 experiments conducted over the next five years and which were published in Infinite Energy, a leading peer-reviewed journal of new science.

“Cool fusion” was selected as a term to describe this process because it offered a middle way between hot fusion or nuclear energy that is inherently dangerous and unstable and cold fusion, a promising new technology, but one which has not been consistently replicable.
The implications of cool fusion are revolutionary: it suggests that mining, which is a major source of environmental destruction, loss of human life, and territorial disputes, including war, could one day become obsolete. Material scarcity, the foundation of all past civilizations, would eventually give way to abundance as society reaches a higher level of development. Indeed, most of the world’s critical elements, including antimony, copper, gallium, gold, hafnium, lead, palladium, silver, tin, and zinc, are forecast to run out in the next 20 to 30 years.

Of course, this transition will take time, at least a generation or more, as a practical method to scale up this process is developed. But in this approach lie the seeds for an end to poverty, war, and environmental catastrophe and the creation of a world of enduring prosperity and peace.
We hope you enjoy reading Cool Fusion and invite your comments, suggestions, and next steps to help make this a reality.
