Very interesting. This weekend Bloomberg TV aired a clip from Ecat.coms video footage taken from the 6th of October event. The TV-show energyNOW! have a special feature each week they call The Hot Zone which brings up new energy developments around the world. Andrea Rossis Ecat was apparently interesting enough to air on US national TV during last weeks program Nuclear waste and the race for resources for almost one minute.
energyNOW! is a new half-hour weekly TV news-magazine and opinion program designed to inform and engage Americans on the most pressing energy issues of the day.
energyNOWs mission statement:
energyNOW! is an editorially independent news organization created to use the latest television and digital media tools to fill this reporting gap on critical energy issues. Our newsroom is staffed by a team of veteran accredited journalists who regularly cover news events at federal agencies, the White House, the U.S. Capitol, and around the world. The program will focus primarily on the key challenges described above oil dependency, the future course of the electric power sector, leading the clean tech revolution and energy efficiency. The successful resolution of these issues is central to Americas future. energyNOW! will cover them week-in and week-out with the substantive and original journalism that these issues demand. And energyNOW! will put these issues into perspective, making them relatable to its viewers and focusing its reporting on how they impact our lives now and in the future.
Fast forward, The Hot Zone featuring Andrea Rossi can be seen between 19:02 and 20:01. Here is a transcript:
An Italian inventor has conducted what some are saying is a successful small test of the Holy Grail of energy production cold fusion, a low-energy nuclear reaction that could theoretically produce endless, self-sustaining and incredibly cheap energy. And thats whats in this weeks energyNOW! hotZONE. The inventor, Andrea Rossi, tested what he calls his E-Cat, or Energy Catalyzer, on October 28. Rossi says his technology uses a secret catalyst that reacts with small amounts of nickel powder and hydrogen gas to create clean energy in the form of heat, no radioactive materials, nuclear waste or pollution. Rossi tested the E-Cat in Italy for an unnamed U.S. company and claims it produced in five hours about as much energy as 70 gallons of gasoline contains. Theres plenty of mystery and skepticism surrounding Rossis cold fusion test, but he says the E-Cat is going into mass production soon.
FoxNews, Wired, CNN and Bloomberg TV may all have editorial independent journalists representing their high profile media outlet platforms, but nevertheless this topic represents a cross-section of its readers interest. Its only a matter of time before the Ecat hits the real news outlets catapulting it to a whole new dimension. And by the way, information hungry Googlers seems to be rising for every day now as well. Take a look at this graph showing Google Trends for searches conducted on E-cat over the past 12 months:
The relative searches has almost trippled during October alone. Even though no more tests are announced, the interest fueled by the well-known media platforms has certainly helped. Independent reporting or not.
The man has a degree from a diploma mill. So what. The degree of "fraud" is miniscule. You and your fellow seagulls make that sound like he committed murder.
“So what?” Are you serious?
You REALLY think that having a fraudulent degree is okay?
Did YOU buy your own degree from a diploma mill? If not, why not?
Cat got your tongue, WW? Since you defended Rossi’s bogus degree, how about being intellectually honest for once and tell us why you went to a good university (LSU) instead of buying a degree from a diploma mill? Do you think that you learned anything at LSU? If so, then why would you defend Rossi’s fake degree?
Check out the deafening silence from the LSU grad challenged to justify his defense of Rossi’s scam diploma!
Still waiting, WW.
Check out the deafening silence from the LSU grad challenged to justify his defense of Rossis scam diploma!WW and Kevmo are also suspiciously silent on the postings starting HERE.
I think we have some solid evidence that Rossi's E-Cat isn't a LENR device, since legitimate research is creating 39 different radioactive isotopes in their experiments, while Rossi's E-Cat isn't producing any radioactive isotopes.
Yes, kind of hard to claim fusion is happening when isotopic ratios remain unchanged...
The man has a degree from a diploma mill. So what. The degree of "fraud" is miniscule.I have to admit, I agree with WW here. A fraudulent degree isn't a big deal unless you're engaged in scientific research or something like that.
OTOH, if you're a con man, trying to make money off a bogus "invention", a fraudulent degree is a big advantage.
You’re quite right—I shouldn’t confuse Rossi for an actual scientist.
A little fraud is like a little pregnant.
So true! The cognitive dissonance displayed by the Rossi cheerleaders is astounding!
Maybe this is old news for everyone else here, but I just discovered it and thought I'd share.
Yes, completely serious.
"You REALLY think that having a fraudulent degree is okay?"
No. But I also don't believe that it is grounds for taking everything Rossi as ever done and might ever do as fraudulent. Nor is it the functional equivalent of murder, as you seem to think.
"Did YOU buy your own degree from a diploma mill? If not, why not?"
No. But there have been quite a few people who, for one reason or another, have done so. Here's a different scenario. Rossi arrives in the US, dead broke and looking for work. He has a degree from an Italian university. He thinks that also having a degree from an American university might help with the job search...so he goes to a diploma mill.
LOL....get a grip, numbnut. It was a busy day at work, and I had to take the dog to the vet after work. There are those of us who are actually producing things for the real world, and who can't spend all their time on FR.
See post 35...cheez. You guys get nuttier all the time.
He has five convictions also. Is that also miniscule?
I served my country and put in a good 35 years 'producing things for the real world. I now have the luxury of watching how these types of scams play out.
Has Rossi ever held a job?
