I'm ignoring every mention of alternative energy until it's actually deployed in a real world scenario.

Is this about that cold fusion Ni/Cu/H thing?

This is inertial electrostatic confinement of a plasma and certainly not cold. It might technically not be "hot" either. See "farnsworth fusor" for the inefficient precursor to this recovery project.

Edit: and no this is completely different.

Most are gimmicks, yes, but a fusion generator that doesn't have negative efficiency is the end all, be all to the energy problem. Well, at least energy creation. Delivery and battery technology remains.

Fusion power enables light farms on which we could grow biodiesel and biogasoline at night, in the winter, whenever, however. Biodiesel and biogasoline fit into our current infrastructure and already solve the energy density problem.

True, but then we still have the problem of CO2 emissions. Then again, with coal, oil, and natural gas power plants gone, we cutout more than 50% of emissions. So, baby steps.
