Nonscience Returns by Brian J. Ford

The original Nonscience dates from 1971, and it caused a sensation. It was translated, featured on television, and widely reviewed. To celebrate its fiftieth birthday it is republished, with updates to show how its predictions came true. 

This extraordinary book reveals a world dominated by Experts. For these all-powerful people, public image and media exposure are all that matters. Scientists, eager to discover the truth, have been superseded by Experts who use confusing language to dominate us and lay claim to colossal grants. Integrity and objectivity are gone; opportunism and duplicity reign.

Discover Cold Fusion by Ruby Carat & Matt Howarth

It was a revolutionary new source of energy that could save the planet from mass extinction. But when two chemists shared their scientific discovery with the world, there was anything but jubilation. Critics said it defied the laws of physics and couldn’t be replicated. It was sheer luck that a small band of scientists were able to confirm the excess heat energy that Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons generated in tiny table-top cells. And there was more. Reports of unusual and anomalous effects. How did a small chemistry experiment turn into one of the greatest scientific mysteries ever encountered? And will ultra-clean power generators be ready to save the world before it’s too late?

Now for the first time ever in graphical form, an incredible story of scientific courage based on true events.  Scripted by Ruby Carat and illustrated by Matt Howarth, this Limited Edition 32-page B&W comic with full-colour cover art delivers science like you’ve never seen it. Researchers Michael McKubre and Melvin Miles acted as consultants bringing the drama of Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons’ discovery succinctly to historical focus, showing how the globe came together to follow the truth, no matter where it would lead.
