I am lost. I have no idea what you believe or why you believe it. You still think Rossi has the goods? You think Darden screwed the pooch? What? Maybe you or someone can explain your stand on this stuff. And do you have a connection with IH or are you just peanut gallery?
I look at the totality of the evidence, and I believe in that. What do you know about the totality of the evidence? And I mean an honest study of the litigation record and following each episode almost on a daily basis since the first demo in 2011, and the cold fusion phenomena since 1989 (not a daily basis, but fairly continually). Do you understand the situation to that level?
I'm not certain that Rossi has the goods. But considering the implications to the world, we should give every last iota of leeway until certainty one way or the other can be achieved. I believe in creative destruction. I believe that many industries are currently being disrupted, and many more are about to be, and should be.
Energy is one of the last bastions of orthodoxy that is ripe for disruption. While solar has made impressive gains in the past decade or so, solar will not facilitate diaspora of the human race across the solar system. I believe that Stephen Hawking's suggestion that we do just that is wise. Solar will also not uplift the hundreds of millions of children who go hungry every day out of poverty. LENR can do these things and much more.
I have no connection with IH or Rossi on any level, no financial ties, no personal ties, none. (Try asking Jed that about IH.)
