Skip to comments.E-Cat 'Cold Fusion' Machine: Claims of Fraud Heating Up
Posted on 02/11/2012 12:35:42 PM PST by dila813
If Italian inventor Andrea Rossi's cold fusion machine, called the E-Cat, really works, then the world's energy problems are all but solved. Rossi claims that a small amount of input energy drives a fusion reaction between hydrogen and nickel atoms inside his machine, producing an outpouring of surplus heat that can be used to generate electricity. And instead of the nasty radioactive byproducts given off by nuclear fission reactors think Fukushima or Chernobyl the E-Cat spits out just a teaspoon of copper.

Here we have an article about people "modeling" what could happen, but they weren't there, and then someone who was there failing to read his 3X5 card.
There’s a thing called the scientific method. You formulate a hypothesis, then test it out and determine truth or falsity. So here’s a theory that someone is miswiring the power connection with the intent of conning people. So, do the test, don’t publish sensational headlines claiming “scan” without any data.
This article is rubbish otherwise.
Given that Rossi will not allow anyone to look inside the machine, how exactly do you propose that these hypotheses should be tested?
ah, So you think Rossi deserves that ... do you
He is a fraud, he has always been a fraud, but some people are so dumb that until you reveal the guy as a fraud and lock him up they still will believe.
There are people that still believe that there is an internal combustion engine that runs on water and it was the evil oil companies that kept it out of production.
Some people are hopeless.
I’ve always lived by this more-or-less infallible maxim: if it requires faith and testimonial, it’s not science. It’s humbug ... it’s deception ... in plain English, bullshit!
Keely, all over again.
“....the E-Cat spits out just a teaspoon of copper.”
And some environmentalist will find a way to declare that copper causes global warming or worse and will be awarded a Nobel prize.
That’s OK. After the dust settles he can get to work on a Perpetual Motion machine.
The science is so poor that I am amazed that the Obamaloon administration and his Clown Show of Felon/Cretins have not yet invested billions in the venture.
He could get “intellectual” backup from the pseudo-scientists who back global warming...they don’t understand physics either.
He’s not a very good fraud if that is the case.
This is very easy. Bring your own portable generator and run the test in the parking lot.
Anyway, I proposed the same explanation (the ground wire used to carry power instead of being just a safety measure) on Dec. 06, 2011 right here, on FR. This method is very obvious, actually.
I think you broke the code! Secretary Chu where are you?
“There are people that still believe that there is an internal combustion engine that runs on water and it was the evil oil companies that kept it out of production.”
Oh, no! That’s not true?
I was planning on burning water for fuel if the SHTF.
Only an idiot could claim fraud as anyone with a brain would not have been taken in by such nonsense in the first place.
Cold Fusion was actually invented by Alchemist Jack in 1366, But he called it ``transmutation of the elemental metals.``
His half-gold half-copper slab, which he gave to King Ludwig II The Insane of Bavaria, may be viewed in the Vienna Museum.
Later on he used a goose which he had stolen from a giant slob living at the top of a beanstalk to produce a full golden egg which he gave to his mother, Mother Goose.
the E-Cat spits out just a teaspoon of copper.Keep in mind that according to Professor Sven Kullander (University of Uppsala), we were supposed to have a "detailed isotopic analysis" of that Copper in time for Christmas. This would have gone a long way towards proving whether the E-Cat is real or not.
We're still waiting.
There is a market for investors in cold fusion. Give Obama a chance to join in with your tax money.-tom
The Columbia Daily Tribune is reporting that Sidney Kimmel, Chairman of the Board of Directors and founder of Jones Apparel Group, Inc., is donating $5.5 million through his charitable foundation to fund studies in the field of cold fusion at the University of Missouri.
It’s amazing how much the modus operandi of various scam artists resemble each other.
