... "None of the professors responded to a single question" ...
This is Essen's CV. It describes his background. Frankly, it is not relevant to this discussion and I do not know why you cite it.
This CV does not answer any of the questions McKubre and others asked about the Lugano experiment. For example, it does not answer my question: "What color was the reactor? Orange or white?" It would take only a moment to answer this. I am not asking for hours of analysis or pages of data. Plus, I think I can claim to be a recognized person in this field, if not an expert. So there is no excuse for not answering it.
If the reactor was orange, as shown in the photos, then the temperature measured by the IR camera was wrong and there was no excess heat. It is possible the photos show the wrong color, or they were taken before excess heat was produced, but I doubt it. I cannot be sure, because they refused to answer.
