Back after the 2 weeks ... ehm, vacation.
When I say I am "familiar" with the literature I mean that I have 4,391 cold fusion papers on my disk. [omissis]
(You can see most of the items in the EndNote database here: http://lenr-canr.org/wordpress/?page_id=1081)
There are many papers that say the results were theoretically impossible. But as far as I know, there are no papers that show errors in the calorimetry.
Sorry for my intrusion. Your database also contains this paper: http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/LeviGreportonhe.pdf
So, I think that a more careful presentation of these papers should have been:
- among the 4,391 cold fusion papers on the disk, there is at least one paper, written by reputable scientists and reviewed by many experts in the field, that is full of calorimetry errors, thanks to which it was stated that a tabletop device produced 12 kW of excess heat for 40 minutes;
- but for all the other 4,390 cold fusion papers, written and reviewed by as much reputable scientists and experts, there are not, on the web, as many extra documents (videos, pictures, emails, interviews, etc.) that allow ordinary people to check on their own, and decide with enough certainty, whether the excess heat (usually much more exiguous) reported in these papers was correctly measured or not.
