No problem, infact I wrote: "or a fusionist group at your choice"
Are capable cold fusionists all died or retaired?
Yes, that is what I said. You can look at the list of authors and confirm that. There are still a few at work, and a few new ones such as Beiting and Duncan.
Also, how would I choose a group? Where would the money and equipment come from? Are you going to provide a few million dollars?
No money... not exactly, for example when you want (I saw here by LF members) in few days thousands of US Dollars have been collected for repair the Mizuno's Lab.
$8,000. Unfortunately the damage to the SEM will cost $17,000 to repair. I do not know where or whether he can come up with $9,000 more.
His laboratory has at least $100,000 in other equipment, as you might estimate from the photo of me in it (https://www.gofundme.com/replace-mizuno039s-lab) The power supply on the bottom left alone cost $16,000. If you think anyone can do a cold fusion experiment for $8,000 starting from scratch -- even if they work for free -- you know nothing about experiments. If someone comes up with a fully equipped lab and a staff of 5 people being paid by someone else, then perhaps they can do a cold fusion experiment. But only if they happen to know a lot about electrochemistry. By "a lot" I mean, for example, they have to be able to understand this paper, which is over my head. Test yourself and see how well you understand it:
It is not quite relevant to cold fusion, but it is the level of electrochemical knowledge you must have. Evidently so, because all of the researchers I know who succeeded had this kind of knowledge. Mizuno, for example, worked in this lab as a post-doc.
