First, I appreciate your posts here tremendously.
I find it difficult to see why some respond so personally aggressive to your posts. You do an excellent job of remaining impersonal and attempting to provide math, logic or example. Even if the…
This is a huge topic in itself.
I used the smart meter controversy as a practical example that resulted in a revision of a standard that was being used as settled. The background is a little more complex as the concerns had existed for some time and…

Wow, This indicates that my investment by giving Mizuno some small fund after the earthquake, is the best investment of my life
(yes I value open science high ). Thanks!! I read through the report. Great work and it looks like the results are really…
Many thanks to Dr. Mizuno for making this publicly available before ICCF22 this September. And very generous, and selfless of him to provide enough information so that others may replicate. Love the Japanese. We could learn so much from them. Hopefully…
In the upcoming ICCF22 conference, Tadahiko Mizuno will report increased excess heat with nickel mesh coated with palladium. The results are dramatic, so we decided to upload a preprint of his paper. To understand the calorimetry, you have to read his…
It ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all…
It sounds like nice work: specifically they have done what it seems sensible to do:
(1) Identify plausible systems
(2) Work on apparatus to generate and measure them
(3) Go for a high level of peer review specifically to identify errors.
There's this other opinion piece from the Nature website
Interesting that it took nearly a year for the article to be accepted for publication. For what it’s worth, I know one of the authors (although I’ve had no contact in many years.) If he is any indication, this is a high-quality group of scientists.
Liked AlainCo’s post in the thread SciShow : 5 Scientists with Ideas That Nobody Believed ... Who Were Right.Like (Post)A nice video describing famous scientists who were right, but not believed.
I like it because they explain some rational reason, like unserious clinical practices raised founded skepticism.
This recognition that being…
