    I'm not sure if we are allowed to discuss the physics of so called Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR), aka Cold Fusion, on this forum but I was interested to see that it may still be attracting serious investment..

    At the time of writing it appears Woodford Patient Capital Trust has invested in Industrial Heat LLC which last year acquired the rights to LENR technology developed by Andrea Rossi..

    Snake oil often has investors. It is a fallacy to equate investment with sound science or workable technology.

    But private investors do tent to invest in less snake oil than the government.
