    All worked up about Rossi like I’m all worked up about Monty Python, and for similar reasons.

    What real deal? Rossi is no longer offering to solve the world’s energy problems. Now it is a bright lamp. And the best part is that his sheeple are still excited

    Depends on the definition of "working". If working means a device which outputs 10x the photonic energy output of current high end LEDs at the same input energy, then hell no. If working means some cobled together Home Depot based…

    By this you mean that the act of purchasing an SKLed will be assigned a DSM-5 code?

    A more modern DC supergrid would also help. The wind is always blowing and the sun always shining somewhere in the Americas.

    Having experienced the gasoline shortages in the early 70s, I would say that the idea that you have much more control when you depend on fuels is patently false. With an electric car, unless the whole grid goes down, you can always…

    As a bit of genuine curiosity: what exactly does one do with an SKLed? Interrogation? Brain surgery? Signaling from distant mountains? Blinding intruders? What is this miracle device for?

  • This parable applies exactly the same for a petrol car. Those can stop working too, you know? In fact, they have far more ways they can fail. So therefore everyone needs two cars. A truly specious argument!

    Given the platforms by which the amazing Rossi lamp is being offered to the world, I would estimate that each customer needs to order about a thousand of them for Rossi to meet his requirements for moving forward. So Sam and Mark, get out those…

    So Mark U and Sam12, now that your hero is no longer going to solve the world's energy problems but is just going to make a better lightbulb, are you just as excited and anxiously awaiting the next chapter of the Rossi saga? Bonus question: why?????

    I guess it is just another step in the ongoing evolution of e-cat technology. From a 100 kW energy source to a small room heater to a pocket-sized power source to a light bulb. Next up: the e-cat paperweight. That one will actually work!

    Haven’t been paying attention lately. So the incredible invention that 10 years ago was going to solve humanity’s energy problems has been improved so many times that it is now just a light bulb?

    Absolutely, as well as a smarter grid with demand management. Pumped hydro is great but not very expandable at this point. Battery technology will only get better and cheaper. And lithium-ion is not necessarily the only game…

  • For the past 20 years, naysayers have decried the limitations of wind and solar power and have simply moved the goalposts each time those supposed limitations have been exceeded. Reading old articles about the shortcomings of renewables is quite…
