The short hiatus from posting here has been interesting. Travelling to London and other parts of the UK, I was able to read most comments (up until this weekend). Despite the occasional flare of animosity, the debate has been instructive. I remain suspicious of the intention of certain posters but deliberately let them have the floor. It is foolish to think we might learn something new by only listening to our internal dialogue. Despite disagreements, the quality has been high and if we can keep it that way, I will hold off on banning all but the most destructive trolls. Please help me by respecting this place and each other.
While the eCat and Hyperion exist in an indeterminate state, I would appreciate your suggestions on what you want from eCatNews.
I have to admit to a hardened scepticism after Defkalion failed to keep their promise regarding the independent tests. Initially pleased to see them paint themselves into a corner, I would have argued the point that such a manoevre would be stupid unless they had the goods. Now I’m not so sure. While it is entirely possible that they will stun us all in the days or weeks to come by showing their independently corroborated hand, I caution everyone to remain sceptical until they do. I look forward to them proving their champions rights and the doubters wrong – if they can.
I am reluctant to act as an echo chamber, simply repeating AR’s announcements. The secret customers, the non-delivered 1MW plant, the succession of pronouncements no-one can verify are only of interest if you already believe. I do not agree with anyone who says he has shown nothing and I continue to give respect to those close to the game who vouch for Rossi’s claims. I would refute any single point of contention (wet steam, Rossi’s history, lies, constant blogging, existence of investors etc) as proof that he is scamming but do admit that the cumulative pattern is worrying.
As hope flickers defiantly, I do believe that the evidence for LENR outweighs the apparent determination by some to see it die. Popeye puts up a good fight, many of his criticisms valid. His points are worth noting even as you wonder why he puts so much effort into making them. He does seem to protest too much. His stance is worth repeating here. In his and the opinion of many scientists, cold fusion is so unlikely that only solid evidence will make them want to look closely at it. In picking holes, he casts doubt and that doubt is proof of something lacking. He has not destroyed the value of Miley’s work (for instance) only muddied the confidence in that scientist’s conclusions. Popeye is willing to spend his talents, the fruit of his experience and time on trying to convince others not to waste theirs on cold fusion because (he says) it is obvious nonsense. It is a curious way to use your resources. Still, he has a point. If cold fusion is real, we must now be at a point where ready proof will explode onto the world stage sometime soon. If not, why not?
In the meantime, AR raises his fists:
We know perfectly who some puppeteers are: our intelligence system is working together with the Law Firm we have engaged for this issue. We are collecting and analyzing every single phrase the Puppets, Snakes (and Clowns) are publishing in paper press and in Internet. We prefer not to sue puppets and puppeteers ( and Clowns) so far because we will be stronger when our working plants will be public: at that point we will give to the Court all the necessary evidence to win both on criminal and in civilistic fields this battle. For now we are just preparing all the necessary publications, comments, evidence, documents, addresses, etc, etc. I start the battles when I am sure to win. So far they had the sensation that our Group can be libelled for free: it is not so. All the proceeds that we will earn from these trials will be donated to families we have already selected that need money to cure the cancer of their children.

Thank you for your kind attention,
If he has what he claims, such considerations will seem petty at launch and if he does not…. well!
Please keep in mind my request for suggestions. Until there is real news, the value of this site is with you and not me. I thank you all for making it so.<< Previous Post -- -- Next post >>
