The strange story of “cold fusion” begins in 1989 when two respected scientists ruin their careers by announcing they can solve all the world’s energy problems using batteries and seawater; “Cold Fusion” is born. Twenty some years later a band of scientists, a radio personality and a high school student are confident that cold fusion will save the world. They are The Believers. (HD Cam presentation)
