"Many recent experiments by other scientists in the field have shown that cold fusion can be controlled and predicted quite effectively"
If you have any links to such I would be very interested in seeing them.
As would I, so long as the are links to reproducible experiments, not just irreproducible anecdotes and oddities.
However, don't forget the real cold fusion: muon-catalyzed fusion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muon-catalyzed_fusion It works best when truly cold -- like the temperature of liquid hydrogen.
Too bad that the energy cost to make the muons is much greater than that from the fusion....
