Skip to comments.Italian cold fusion machine passes another test

Despite a world of skepticism about E-Cat and other devices, proof is adding up
Italian physicist and inventor Andrea Rossi has conducted a public demonstration of his "cold fusion" machine, the E-Cat, at the University of Bologna, showing that a small amount of input energy drives an unexplained reaction between atoms of hydrogen and nickel that leads to a large outpouring of energy, more than 10 times what was put in.
The first seemingly successful cold fusion experiment was reported two decades ago, but the process has forever been met with heavy skepticism. It's a seemingly impossible process in which two types of atoms, typically a light element and a heavier metal, seem to fuse together, releasing pure heat that can be converted into electricity. The process is an attractive energy solution for two reasons: Unlike in nuclear fission, the reaction doesn't give off dangerous radiation. Unlike the fusion processes that take place in the sun, cold fusion doesn't require extremely high temperatures.

E-cat getting more mentions in major press.
Did you notice this piece didn’t have the automatic “we quoted professor BS and ASS at (some) nuclear energy (company/department/government agency) and he said “Cain’t do it no how”.

but what’s the catch , aluminum and say let me see ,gold
Quick, somebody please post that photo of the guy who looks like Desi Arnaz with the caption “Aw gee, not this *hit Again”.
I hope it is not a fraud. We need some good news for a change.
I still get a kick out of these guys who dispute that this works by arguing it doesn’t give off any high energy radiation ~ neglecting the point that it doesn’t do that because, as it turns out, it doesn’t do that.
If it really works, the EPA will find a way to quash it.
I still wonder why he hasn’t patented it. I mean it seams that is his next step.
Even if it does work, that means unlimited energy. The Libs and Lefties won’t stand for that. How can you ration unlimited energy? It would be racism!

Cold Fusion is the Alchemy of this century.
Actually alchemy was the alchemy of the 20th century. They made all sorts of new elements. Sorry you missed out on it ~ exciting times really!
Surely you jest. Unlimited energy can mean unlimited global warming, as ultimately at least a portion energy used gets converted to thermal energy. Energy use will have to be rationed, so that the planet does not boil.</s>
Don't expect 'good news' from a three-time scammer ...
Somehow, the West will create an EPA or equivalent to prevent cold fusion from becoming a viable source of energy so as to continue their a$$-ki$$ing of the muslim world.
The physicist that endorses the e-cat and provides the theory for the operation of it also endorses and provides the theory of how water molecules maintain their homeopathic memory ...
