Cold Fusion alert. Extraordinary claims, require extraordinary proof alert too.
Cold fusion no, Hot air, yes.
I suspect it's getting energy from somewhere, if it works.
I agree - if they want a rigorous examination then give them one. If, against all odds, they are actually on to something then all the better.
I'm as much a skeptic about this process as you are but I don't agree with this statement. In bayesian terms, you have a strong prior probability of ~ 1 for a proposition such as "it is impossible to produce energy by starting in a state and then returning to an identical state" (which is what I think the article describes). But that proposition is falsifiable by a single contrary example.
It should be a solidly controlled single example. I'd want to see it replicated several times--that reflects the strength of the prior probability. But I think the statement about extraordinary claims requiring extraordinary belief is just a way to stop discussion about subjects the speaker doesnt' want to talk about.
If they are ready for peer review then I think they just might have something here.
Cold fusion doesn't violate the laws of physics. This "free energy" device sounds like it does.
"Cold Fusion alert."
Naa. Cold fusion actually works. This is baloney.
