"Rossi claimed to have shipped his big shipping-container E-Cat. When it was discovered that he had not moved the shipping-container E-Cat, he changed his story, claiming to be busy working on it in his Bologna warehouse. The video clearly shows that nothing is happening around the E-Cat. No test equipment, no connection to water or a heat exchanger, no signs of anyone else (i.e. National Instruments) working on it. When it was discovered that he had a portable space heater in the warehouse, he claimed that it wasn't worth using an E-Cat to heat the warehouse, since they "only use it now and then". So, Rossi is supposedly busy working on the shipping-container E-Cat which is sitting idle in a warehouse which is only used "now and then"."

Not ONE SINGLE LINE of the above screed addresses ANY point IN THE POSTED ARTICLE. Stick to the subject, jerk.

OK Star Wars boy, here are some comments from Joe Zawodny, regarding his appearance in the video referenced in the story (LINK):
While I do work for NASA, I do not speak for them.

As for what people are trying to read into this video, specifically my use of the word “demonstrated”, it is my professional opinion that the production of excess energy has been demonstrated when the results of the last 20+ years of experimentation are evaluated.

I did not say, reliable, useful, commercially viable, or controllable. If any of those other terms were applicable I would have used them instead. If anything, it is the lack of a single clear demonstration of reliable, useful, and controllable production of excess power that has held LENR research back.

There have been many attempts to twist the release of this video into NASA’s support for LENR or as proof that Rossi’s e-cat really works.

In my scientific opinion, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I find a distinct absence of the latter. So let me be very clear here. While I personally find sufficient demonstration that LENR effects warrant further investigation, I remain skeptical. Furthermore, I am unaware of any clear and convincing demonstrations of any viable commercial device producing useful amounts of net energy.

Every attempted demonstration of a LENR device that I am aware of has failed to meet one or more of these criteria.
