One quick observation... I see that Stirling Alan, the man who reported that Rossi had a deal with National Instruments, has apparently set up Rossi's web site.

Not only is he reporting on Rossi, but he's a business partner as well.

Residential system cost (if and when): $2500 for the device, $20 - $40 per year in "fuel"

Sounds too goo to be true.

From the 1MW unit's page:

"An auxiliary power source of 250 kW will be needed to start up the plant, bringing the resistive heaters up to temperature."
That's a lot of juice, boys and girls.

Terms: Full payment in escrow.

That sounds nice and honest. Maybe it is.

Of course, with $200 million in escrow (the cost of the 100 E-Cats that Rossi claims to have orders for), he should have no trouble attracting venture capitalists or (more likely, I think) individual investors.

This wouldn't be the first time a con artist used sales in escrow to scam investors. Steorn appears to have raised over €10 million from investors and venture capitalists for a "free energy" scam.

That's "Watt". (Just a little physics humor.)

The device supposedly can heat water to just over the boiling point. It won't run a steam turbine (to generate large amounts of electricity). It would be enough to heat a large building, or distill water (for example).

If it really works, it's going to be a major revolution. However, there are lots of reasons to be suspicious of Rossi and his E-Cat.

We're still waiting for independent confirmation that it actually works.

That is an acceptable statement, but it is extremely doubtful that this device can do it with any less than one megawatt of input power.

Never mind that, get a load of this from the same page

It cannot "melt down" like conventional nuclear reactors. This is because if the temperature inside the reactor cores rise beyond a certain level, the nickel powder will melt, destroying the reaction sites at which the nuclear reactions take place. With the reaction sites destroyed, the reactor cores will no longer function, and all nuclear processes will cease.

Hmm. I wonder what the licensing requirements are for a fusion/nuclear reactor.

Not for a 1 MW plant. It's like getting a 4.5 kW water heater at home (a very typical setup) that requires 1 kW of power whenever you start it up. My tea kettle takes more than 1 kW.

Thanks for the ping

The Cold Fusion Ping List

http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/coldfusion/index?tab=articles


http://ecatnews.com/?p=1144

Unfortunately, if Rossi did the following:

1) hired a bunch of actors to pretend to be the customer reps,

2) created an elaborate year-long special-effects-derived series of demos,

3) bribed, hypnotised or otherwise fooled Focardi, Levi, Kullander, Essen, Bianchini, Stremmenos

4) arranged for Piantelli, Miley and a host of others to try to fool the world into thinking that cold fusion was real,

5) got NASA, SPAWAR, The Defense Threat Reduction Agency and The Defense Intelligence Agency to say nice things about the field,

6) got Bushnell to make a fool of himself,

7) and convinced his former partners to set up another company called Ampenergo to pretend that they had a contract for The Americas for a substantial sum
-—— or that they just did this with no proof because they have worked with Rossi and trust him because he’s such a fine fellow,

8) sold his profitable company to his ex-partners in order to spend that wealth on a multi-million dollar scam;
-—— certain that once he got all the above ducks in a row he would pretend to sell the first device
-—— and then reel in the true target of his dastardly plan

9) and convinced a bunch of Greek crooks to set up a dummy company called Defkalion
-—— to pretend to fight with him over the non-existent eCat,
-—— to perpetuate the illusion and spin it off into a competing mirror-scam

[the second (this time genuine) buyer of a 1MW plant that will net him $2 million dollars
-—— until they want their money back or sucker a $100 million dollar deal under the table
-—— because he has experience in pulling the wool over all these idiotic eyes
-—— and knows that they will just take his word for it
-—— and not want to test if his 1MW plant can heat a small village without truckloads of coal or oil or a big fat electric cable coming into the container from beneath the floor (no you can’t lift the carpet!) ]

10) and that, in order to pull this off, Rossi had to risk discovery by interviewing all the people he subsequently fooled so that he could only invite the gullible Professors and not the brilliant anonymous posters on the Internet who surely would have found him out

then, yes, all bets are off and I’m with the guys who think that Rossi is an idiot and they are all geniuses.

True; however how would anyone use 1 MW of heat in a house? That's enough for 200-300 average homes. Unless, of course, you keep this puppy in the basement :-)

Small scale enough to heat an average size home in the snow belt for a quarter of the amount of the cost of an new oil burner with less than 10% of the price of fuel oil is a dream.

You would install one for a bunch of houses. Then you either distribute hot water to houses (this is often used in cold climate) or you generate electric energy from the steam. The cost of the plant would be shared, and will be less than a bunch of amaller, 5 kW units (which can't be used to generate steam anyway, they aren't allowed to run hot enough for that.)

it’s a scam, by a cereal box credential scammer, who’s learned to make a better scam.

Unfortunately, if Rossi did the following:

1) hired a bunch of actors to pretend to be the customer reps,

This is so common, they have a special word for them: Shills.
2) created an elaborate year-long special-effects-derived series of demos,
This is very common for such cons. See:
3) bribed, hypnotised or otherwise fooled Focardi, Levi, Kullander, Essen, Bianchini, Stremmenos
The men mentioned are with the University of Bologna. Note that the University of Bologna has released a PRESS RELEASE stating that neither the University nor any of it's scientists have been involved with any of Rossi's experiments.
4) arranged for Piantelli, Miley and a host of others to try to fool the world into thinking that cold fusion was real,

5) got NASA, SPAWAR, The Defense Threat Reduction Agency and The Defense Intelligence Agency to say nice things about the field,

Here you are trying to confuse the issue by insinuating that if there is any validity to LENR, then Rossi must be valid as well. It is entirely possible that Rossi is a con man, using "cold fusion" as the basis of his frauds.
6) got Bushnell to make a fool of himself,
Dennis Bushnell is a scientist for NASA, and has "said some nice things" about Rossi's device. Of course, NASA determined that Rossi had not "proven his extraordinary claim".
7) and convinced his former partners to set up another company called Ampenergo to pretend that they had a contract for The Americas for a substantial sum -—— or that they just did this with no proof because they have worked with Rossi and trust him because he’s such a fine fellow, 8) sold his profitable company to his ex-partners in order to spend that wealth on a multi-million dollar scam; -—— certain that once he got all the above ducks in a row he would pretend to sell the first device -—— and then reel in the true target of his dastardly plan 9) and convinced a bunch of Greek crooks to set up a dummy company called Defkalion -—— to pretend to fight with him over the non-existent eCat, -—— to perpetuate the illusion and spin it off into a competing mirror-scam
Since Rossi and several of his former asssociates have been convicted (and served prison time) several times for fraud, it isn't all that unreasonable that they might be interested in getting in on a scam.
[the second (this time genuine) buyer of a 1MW plant that will net him $2 million dollars -—— until they want their money back or sucker a $100 million dollar deal under the table -—— because he has experience in pulling the wool over all these idiotic eyes -—— and knows that they will just take his word for it -—— and not want to test if his 1MW plant can heat a small village without truckloads of coal or oil or a big fat electric cable coming into the container from beneath the floor (no you can’t lift the carpet!) ]
There is still no evidence, other than Rossi's word, that there even was a customer.
10) and that, in order to pull this off, Rossi had to risk discovery by interviewing all the people he subsequently fooled so that he could only invite the gullible Professors and not the brilliant anonymous posters on the Internet who surely would have found him out
Your buddy, Jed Rothwell, refused to attend one of Rossi's dog & pony shows, because Rossi wouldn't allow him to bring his own test equipment. Rossi has chosen his audience carefully, especially after Steven Krivit attended a demo, and discovered that Rossi's E-Cat wasn't actually doing what Rossi claimed.
then, yes, all bets are off and I’m with the guys who think that Rossi is an idiot and they are all geniuses.

it’s clear it’s a scam

There is no reason to call it a scam or a true invention. The thing should speak for itself. There were indeed a few questionable experiments, and now it looks like a conflict of interest too, but in the end it doesn't matter. If Rossi is selling the devices, let him sell and then we'll listen to opinions of his customers.

But the real problem here is that we don't know how the thing works (or even why.) There is no solid scientific basis for anything that happens. As I said earlier, the device may be emitting unknown death rays for all we know, or it may explode like a nuke after exactly 12,345 hours of operation. The science is supposed to tell us that the device works because it has to work, and that it won't explode because of $some_other_good_reason. Right now we are in position of a caveman who found a way to make fire but has no idea what the fire is.

This is exactly how it didn't happen with fission reactors. Nobody demonstrated fission to citizens, so that citizens would pool their money and build nuclear power stations. Scientists said that the fission will work, and if anyone doesn't believe they can go to a certain place in Nevada and see for themselves. (If they still disbelieve they are free to do so at their own peril.) The whole thing was so well understood that no doubt remained, other than how to build it safe. Similarly we don't question light bulbs, radio, airplanes - because we (as a society) understand them pretty well. We will have to get to the same level of understanding about LENR before we will stop seeing it as a trick and start seeing it as a technology.

***Don’t forget the reporters such as Mats Lewan. Levi was certainly no partner when he started looking into it. Given Rossi’s background, I would think that most who have looked into it were skeptical beforehand.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2768729/posts

. Recognising the danger that the University of Bologna was in through its association with Andrea Rossi, Levi set out with a sceptic’s eye to look at the businessman’s claims. A member of the US Sceptics’ Society and an experienced physicist, he was familiar with the signs that traditionally signal a scam artist at work .

Interestingly, only Rossi, Focardi, Allan and Mills’ names are hyperlinked at that site.

I also find the “customer criteria” link to be quite interesting. Customers should be “Not effected or concerned about derogatory comments made during early stages.” Is that another way to say customers should be gullible?

Another interesting fact is that when I first became aware of the eCat, Rossi was hyping it as the next great energy revolution. It was going to make all other energy generation technology obsolete—in fact, Rossi was all but urging the immediate dismantling of all power plants. Now, according to the Leonardo website, it’s only being sold as a heater. I sense that Rossi is very sensitive to the criticisms, and tries to change his story accordingly.
