    I don't see it makes any difference. How can power out > power in possibly be determined from a video? It is absurd: given Rossi's proven unreliability (being kind) at measuring either input or output power, and the lack of any independent…

    That is true Pekka, Rossi was not present all the time, but believe me, without his long daily (or nightly) presence, the plant would never have continued to operate.

    Corrected for you:

    There are serious attempts notably from https://www.tokamakenergy.co.uk/ to do hot fusion in newer smaller quicker ways. They are a long shot, but have no new physics to work out and a decent chance with the technology. They…

    I see how it will work. It will not be easy for the customer to know what thermal energy they are getting out. Who is measuring this: Rossi?

    The cooling system recovered energy... How can Rossi know what that is? And why if he has…

    I never said Darden was a scientist. Nor did he claim to be one.

    If you believe that low level LENR effects have been widely observed, but are not understand, and must be nuclear, as most do here, then Darden's actions make perfect sense.

    (1) LENR looks like a good long-term bet that might save the planet but seems…

    You would want somehow to check the transmittance of the durapot layer at different wavelengths since for stuff going through it steel and alumina will look very different. Retrofitting the Lugano reactor is difficult due to uncertainty…

    It is more nuanced than that. Like all good cons, and indeed all sensible high-risk investments, Darden's involvement was phased. Darden was suspicious of Rossi's tests, but before handing over the $10M he had taken a punt…

    Given what you write about Rossi's exploits, it would appear so.

    The excuse that always works is "I don't want to look at the evidence" which magically transmutes what would otherwise be a good old-fashioned lie into an…

    Scientists can (and must when reviewing) deal with process and factual matters, rather than beauty context or personal feelings. There is always some room for interpretation, some aspect of personal feelings. But, if this is…

    Your statement about placebos is a good example of where you need to read more recent literature, and perhaps improve your understanding of artefacts.


    By the way, this discussion of placebos is not new. My late mother expressed doubts about them in the

    Just four words:

    The applicability is obvious in this case where placebo effect is known to affect reporting of symptoms.

    To properly comment upon the Ecat affair, it's essential to know with precision which was the entire sequence of demo and tests performed during the first year of public activity. I post again the following jpeg, which shows…

    Yes; I always ask for a peer review. More than one. Of course.

    A significant journal is the easiest way to get this, but not the only such. However, it has to be an objective peer review, not a cherry-selected set of people who…

    The views expressed here about peer reviewed journals are quite illuminating. I had the odious task of editing a section of a journal for a couple of years and was responsible for locating reviewers for articles. People with professional integrity…

    "wrong emissivity methods" accurately explains claimed Lugano COP and mysterious acceleration in COP noted by experimenters and used by them as confirmation of an exothermic reaction.
