JedRothwell , you can address your concerns about clarity of the statements directly to StevenBKrivit by contacting him in his page. I sure did, and he has been forthcoming after that.
I talked with him about it, long ago.
I don't want to make a mountain out of molehill. He is entitled to his opinion. He is confused by this, and maybe other people are too. Is anyone here confused by the terms "power" and "energy" in plasma fusion papers? Do you think Krivit has a valid point?
It bothers me a little because I as I see it, he is actually helping the plasma fusion people. He is making groundless accusations against them. He is handing them a stick they can beat us with. I don't like the plasma fusion people, and I don't want to give them any advantages.
