    This interpretation is not accurate. A brief communication can prompt lots of criticism and demands for clarification. In addition, the brevity of a published article does not relieve the authors of the responsibility of…

    That is correct. Kirk’s “semi-mechanism” (I call it semi because it is generic not specific as to physical cause) is conceivable (and therefore must be guarded against) and has applied to some calorimeters (I will give an…

    Hi Wyttenbach,

    Is your position that no one has provided support (theoretical or experimental) for the Yukawa potential, and yet people take it seriously? If so, do you feel that this is a credible position to take?

    ....to be clear, not a Gamma spec, but a whole collection of Geigers. The Gamma spec arrived Friday, today I went and bought as much lead as I could carry to add to the 20 kilos we already have. Monday is a public holiday here,…

    I take no issues with anything you have just said, except the part about there being no claim. It is a claim, implicitly or perhaps not so implicitly, when there is mention of a gamma spec showing something interesting.

    Even if this is not a purely…

    Hi Alan,

    As a norm in science, if you make a claim, you should be prepared to back it up. It is possible we're not in a scientific context, in which case an inventor can make a claim and then not be prepared to back it up. Or we might be in a…

    There is no such thing when dealing with professionals in a scientific context. If there are trade secrets and the like, a professional will politely state this. Perhaps too obvious to mention, but don't be detained for long by anyone…

    If questions are going to be met with vague, conflicting or convoluted answers 'because reasons', it's pointless to even ask. Furthermore, Mark H summarized well what tends to happen by asking too much.

    If I have to regard this…

    RFI is funny stuff. I've spent many weeks down salt mines away from unwanted radio waves trying to solve RFI problems.

    It sounds like you know thing or two about how to run an experiment but I wouldnt…

    Brilliant that you took the trouble to do this.

    At this point I think that LION's reports should be treated as perhaps mistaken. And for anyone who is taking Bob Greenyer's analysis of the LION 1 and LION 2 remains seriously I…
  • I'm personally curious to have Shawyer's drive brought into proximity with a neutrino detector and see if anything is detected.

    I can only answer the first question: in response to suggestions from E48, I rebuilt my power system to include the PWM DC chopper LION apparently uses. I published a plot of the resulting waveform and harmonics earlier in this…

    Using your standards of fact checking, I'm going to review hot fusion research.

    Hot fusion is the hottest thing! Much hotter than the centre of the sun, fusion reactions delivering MW of power already work. The fuel from sea-water ifs…

    You are in no wise a victim, Adrian. It does not require a network analysis from graph theory to ascertain who the recurring sources of conflict are. The people whose views you disagree with do not get into unedifying conflicts with the majority of…

  • It is important not to judge the empirical evidence in a field such as LENR by irrational proponents who become attached to every implausible claim made by this or that entrepreneur. Familiarizing oneself with the literature will help to form an…

    What's LION's opinion on why it failed to produce the expected results?
