If this is indeed the mechanism, then another, possibly more interesting,
reaction might be:-

27Al+1H+1H => 28Si + 1H + 11.585 MeV

(Al27 like Pd105, also has a spin of 5/2.)

Both starting and ending products are stable, and both H and Al are cheap as
dirt. (Al is about 7-8% of dirt in fact) ;)

At our current rate of energy use, just the top 1 km of the land surface of the
Earth would supply us with energy for 2 trillion years. Needless to say, the Sun
won't last that long. In fact, just the top 1 m would be a better match to the
expected life of the planet.
