Actually, if it wasn't for cold fusion, then the sun wouldn't shine! As I learnt in one of my uni courses, I can't remember which step in the hydrogen cycle it is, but by all the standard calculations it's impossible. But, by dint of quantum tunneling (aka cold fusion) the impossible happens often enough to power the sun :-) Which is one of the reasons I'm a cold-fusion sceptic, but not an outright disbeliever. I studied the Fleischman-Pons debacle as another one of my uni courses, and I firmly believe that the bad publicity they generated basically destroyed a good avenue of research.
