3) Everybody on this forum seems tobelieve that Google will succeed in replicating the bestchoice made by this forum members.
However, Google team track record isnot really good in this matter as they failed to replicatesome known to be replicable experiments.
That is a good point.
Do you really want a second article inNature describing another failed CF experiment ?
Can you imagine the impact ?
Nature would not publish a positive replication. They will only publish a failure, and the larger more prestigious the author, the better for them. They want to report that Google failed, not that some obscure retired professor failed. If Google's results had been positive, Nature would never have published. If Google comes back with a positive replication, Nature will reject it out of hand.
The impact would be same as it has been since 1989. I don't see how it can make things any worse than they are. I wouldn't worry about it. We all know that Nature and the DoE will never admit cold fusion is real or that it has been replicated.
