Bizarre arguments, Jed. So are you telling me that if Rossi or someone really had a tabletop device that could produce 10kW (at boiling water temperature, 100 degrees C) for six months on a thimble-full of inexpensive fuel with no radiation, that nobody would market it and nobody would buy it?
I.H. would buy it and market it. But years ago, Toyota and others developed much smaller devices that could not be controlled, and therefore could not be marketed. In the end Toyota largely abandoned the effort. That was because of politics, as I said. They did not abandon it completely; they are still quietly working on it.
Other companies did not look at these small cold fusion devices for the same reason you will not look at them. They do not practice the scientific method. They do not believe that replicated experiments are the standard of truth in science. They replace it with some other outlandish arbitrary standard, and they make up irrational excuses to deny reality. You do this, so you should not be surprised that other people also do it. We are living in an unscientific era. You epitomize this.
History is full of discoveries that were ignored or abandoned or that lay fallow for decades, and were later made useful. If you are not aware of this I suggest you read books about the history of technology. A well known example is the incandescent vacuum lightbulb. It was invented and demonstrated by Moses Farmer and others in the 1850s, long before Edison made it into a practical device. People do not think or invent or solve problems today any faster than they did in 1850. I think it is a myth the progress has sped up.
