Acland quotes another cold fusion researcher at the E-Cat World page:
"In the last 8 weeks I have been astounded by a superior nanotechnology that will capture the imagination of even the greatest foes of LENR. I believe all of LENR is just a new and unanticipated form of nanomagnetism.

Now he is using made-up words to describe it- what on earth is nanomagnetism?
I can’t find anything about nano or Acland at your links - do you have a specific page number or date?
I don’t blame Rossi a bit for keeping people out of his factory. It’s a private business and every business operates with some level of security.
The real story here that I saw was the new thermoelectric concept that is supposedl up to 15% efficient, which is referenced from some 3rd party developer.
If this worked, he would ALREADY be a multi-billionaire
He is doing EVERYTHING that previous scammers have done, and not one thing to prove it works
Maybe he’s paranoid about industrial espionage. Doesn’t want to see a Chinese knock off hit the market before HIS machine does.
It's a short article and I didn't want to post the entire article. I should have been a bit more clear, yes.
I notice Rossi is going to outsource production. What about secrecy? What about the self destruct mechanism?
1- IS MY TECHNOLOGY FIT TO MAKE WEAPONS? ANSWER: NOT AT ALL
That's pretty obvious, unless the military wants to take five hours to brew a pot of coffee.
I can’t believe you missed this...
“If this worked, he would ALREADY be a multi-billionaire”
Here's what we'll do...Let's go with a “Big Oil” conspiracy to spice things up!
Seriously...Rossi has suffered from an excess of hype...both his and others. Now the competition is showing up and mickey mouse in a tin box won't cut it anymore.
Somebody found Tesla’a missing papers?
Not to mention that two of his factories have burned down.
1) The one where he supposedly heated his whole factory for over six months with an ECAT, BTW, where's that ECAT?
2) He was supposedly producing TE devices (Thermolectric Device which produces electricity from heat) Rossi's TE was supposed to be 20% efficient. When it came time for independent tests, that factory burned down and he can't produce the 20% ones anymore, now, his are no more efficient than others and they had an extremely high failure rate.
I design and build proprietary process equipment and would never let “casual” observers in for a “look see” on our processes or equipment.
Anyone who has intellectual property (IP) has to have his head examined if he allows anyone, other than an absolute need to know folks under his factory roof.
His activity is not strange it is just in keeping with good IP practice, and to do otherwise he would certainly loose his proprietary and confidential IP status.
You are obviously unfamiliar with IP or confidential process property or you would not bring it up.
Yes, I understand paranoia about theft of ideas, money has no morals, but the only part he was going to manufacture was the “reactor” and that a simple machine shop could do with ease.
So again I suspect he's inflating the truth with his hopes and hype.
In Rossi’s defense, Brian Ahern is the one who used the nano-magnetism term and it is a real term.
” What about the self destruct mechanism?”
That's a bit worrying. But maybe there's thermite in the thing to melt it down unless opened correctly. OOOps! E-Cat on the barbie-b-cue!
Hey- I am totally with you- I am a PHYSICIST
I would love to see this work
But the effort he is going through to prevent access and examination is ridiculous to the point of making me VERY skeptical- all scammers I have seen over the last 30 years behave this same way.
If I had something that was generating more electricity than I put in, I would document it, and then invite the whole world to see.
Those reactors are pretty small. I wonder why they take hours to warm up.
