Anyway, it is absurd to think national labs and major universities would refuse to test a working LENR reactor.
Any professor without tenure who tries to study cold fusion will be summarily fired, and/or threatened with deportation. I know several who suffered that fate. Any professor or national laboratory researcher who so much as suggests a meeting about cold fusion will be in deep trouble. Robert Park and others have vowed to "root out and fire" anyone in the government or government supported labs who tries to do an experiment or talks about or holds meetings about cold fusion. Since most university labs have government support, that covers nearly all.
("Root out and fire" is how Park himself described his actions and the actions of government officials working with him, in a talk he gave at the APS that I attended.)
Look what happened to Mel Miles, a Fellow of China Lake. ("Fellow" means a distinguished scientist who can work on any topic he chooses. This is like having tenure.) When he persisted in doing cold fusion, and published a peer-reviewed paper, the management of the lab was so upset, they cut off his finding, then cut off his telephone, and then assigned him to a menial job in a warehouse. You will find the letters from the laboratory management and Miles' responses at LENR-CANR.org. If they do that to one of world's top electrochemists with a long resume of distinguished accomplishments, imagine what they would do to a young scientist without tenure.
