Since Swartz has once again brought up his obsession about censorship at LENR, this gives me an opportunity to clarify the criteria used to put papers on the LENR website. For the sake of this discussion, the website has two parts: a listing of over 3000 papers having some relevance to cold

Michel, you seem to miss the point to this discussion. The LENR website is whatever Jed wants it to be. We started the site and Jed operates it without pay for the benefit of the field. In addition, he applies the highest standards to this operation. Yet, when Swartz raise the issue of

Hi Horace, The reason the conduction of water is said to be caused by ions is because pure water is essentially an insulator. In fact, the purity of water is normally measured by measuring its conductivity. As for the speed of ions, an individual ion moves only a very short distance. This is

The cold fusion process does not produce gamma for several reasons. Immediate release of gamma does not occur because such a reaction is not effective in conserving the momentum of the reaction. Instead, if a reaction is to occur at all, two charged particle must be emitted. Of course, some of
