***Yes, seriously. It is obvious that your objection to this development comes from emotion rather than critical & rational thinking.
It is not up to me to prove that the non-scientist Rossi’s claims of having achieved transmutation of elements in a way incompatible with the laws of physics; it is up to Rossi to show that he has.
***Rossi would be claiming no more than what several other LENR Researchers have seen.
Mizuno, T., Nuclear Transmutation: The Reality of Cold Fusion. 1998: Infinite Energy Press.
A few months ago, the claims were that this device was going to replace all known methods of power generation, and that power plant operators might as well start dismantling their plants, since they were about to be made obsolete.
***Grandiosity appears to be part of the process of introducing new technology. The interesting thing here is, if this is real, those claims are correct.
But now, the claim is only that the device is a heater, with power generation still in the future.
***Rossi has been claiming all along that the first generation of ecats would be heaters.
So it does almost appear that Rossi is already engaged in the behavior of promising that the big breakthrough is just around the corner.
***If it “almost appears” to be the case then your writing would be far more emotionally cautious. Instead, you get a feeling that he’s a con artist and you go with it. In the field of LENR, we are lucky to see a good demo once every year or 2. Rossi has given 10 demos in the last year. His big breakthrough has already taken place, in that he got a customer to put cash on the barrel head for a LENR device. No one else even claims this. Now the ultraskeptics claim that there isn’t even a customer. The more customers there are, the wider the conspiracy theory becomes, until that theory pops like a balloon.
While you want to jump all over me for stating that I have a feeling that Rossi will engage in other con man behaviors, given the objectively observable con man behaviors he has already engaged, it is clear to me that your support of his claims is purely emotional.
Making excuse after excuse for his behavior, even after many people have pointed out the various ways in which Rossi doesn’t, as they say, “pass the smell test” is purely an emotional behavior.
I have to wonder, what is your motivation?
I hope you didn’t invest in it (and I mean actual investment, not playing around at some betting website).
It’s obvious your focus is on emotion because not one of your questions is about the science behind this development.
Oh, I've questioned the "science" here many times.
***Emotionally charged, about what one would expect from someone approaching this subject leading with their emotions.
