Problem with people like Coyaud is that gets obsessed with the topic and can start harassing people as she has done in the past with Carpintieri and Cardone.
So that we are on the same page: the article was written by Leonid Schneider, who caught wind of the story from Sylvie Coyaud.
That said, this Schneider unfortunately is very good at going for the jugular. Maybe too good? In reading the piece, it came across to me that he tried so hard being a smart ass, the CF funding became secondary. LENR is used to hit men like him, and I doubt it will have any impact on the HERMES/CleanHME teams. Surely they knew this was coming, and were prepared.
I thought it was petty, and unprofessional the way he treated Celani, and Pekka Peljo. No reason for it, as they both have solid credentials. Yes, they believe in CF, but so what? He could have made his case without the personal attack IMO. Then to criticize them for having no female scientists on the team. Like how many are there in all of LENR...maybe 2, and he dings them for that!
And if you are reading this Leonid: believing Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquie, and D3 work against COVID does not make one (MFMP) a conspiracy nut. There are plenty of studies to back that up. Now get over it. The money has been allotted, and there is nothing you can do about it. May as well join the rest of us in wishing the 2 teams success,
