Dr. Michael McKubre on Nuclear Fusion Then and Now
One show produced by online television studio TheLip.tv is a weekly talk show called “Buzzsaw” (airing Fridays at 3:00 p.m. PST). Episode 100 of “Buzzsaw” features Sean Stone interviewing Dr. Michael McKubre of SRI on “Nuclear Fusion Then and Now.” Stone is a filmmaker and one of the investigators on Jesse Ventura’s “Conspiracy Theory”; he is the son of Oliver Stone and appeared in some of his father’s movies when he was a child.
The 30-minute interview includes an overview of cold fusion. Stone asked about the disruptive potential of cold fusion technology, and whether the community is concerned about it being able to come to market. McKubre said, “The oil companies are both smart and pragmatic; they didn’t get to where they are without having a keen nose for what the future looks like. I would expect them to simply adapt, to become players, to co-opt the technology, to get involved with the technology...The oil companies are energy companies. If a new source of energy comes along, they will adapt, they will learn, they will become our allies. They may even take it over from us.”
