As an aside, Jones would, in later years, vehemently and publicly disparage the growing body of evidence that evolved to validate the Fleischmann-Pons type of cold fusion.
Privately, though, in recent years, Jones appears to be seeking investment funds to develop cold fusion as an energy source , despite the fact that his version of cold fusion produces a trillionth of the energy than the Fleischmann-Pons version.
Not surprisingly, as cold fusion (as a potential energy source) is coming into greater acceptance, Jones conceded on Feb. 13 that the Fleischmann-Pons claim of excess heat is real.
On May 1, 1989, the physics community didn't seem to mind that Jones had completely contradicted what he had written just days earlier. It was relieved that Jones had publicly recanted his heretical proposition. After all, chemists doing cold fusion were easy to dismiss, but one of their own, a physicist? That would have been too much.
Fleischmann and Pons, however, made no such retraction. Their threat to hot fusion was clear and present. They posed a threat not only to hot fusion researcher's stature and funding, but also to their entire worldview of physics.
Unlike Vigier, most physicists failed to consider the possibility that the Fleischmann-Pons claim of excess heat may have been valid.

After seven years of intensive experiments, PPRC became the first to conclusively demonstrate fusion energy is producible, repeatable, and sustainable over many hours at low (ambient) temperatures and low input energies. Patent applications were applied for in the United States and several other major industrial countries. Foreign international patent applications were filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

The company made its first public disclosure of its fusion yields during three presentations at an American Physical Society's Conference held in Salt Lake City on 5 October 2002. PPRC's two papers are now being published in World Scientific and have been submitted to a physics journal, awaiting publication. As with all serious investigators of fusion as an alternate energy, chief among the anticipated applications are reducing the need for internal-combustion engines (ground vehicles, aircraft, and spacecraft), airport and building security devices, medical and many other commercial applications, including independent megawatt power supplies and eventually power plants. With sufficient technical support from other laboratories, it is anticipated this can be accomplished by year-end 2007; this because only low-temperature physics and small input energies are involved. However, because much higher yields are required, new procedures, now proprietary, differ greatly from those detailed below. For example, several designs for the company's first prototype engine are already in place.......

Pons and Fleischmann came to believe that some of Jones' work was based on information derived from theirs, and therefore he did not deserve equal credit. So without so much as informing Jones or BYU, they arranged to publish in the Journal of Electrochemistry instead and proceeded to announce their findings at the press conference. ( read the rest)
