Brian and Jones— IMHO both of you are wrong in your projections. However as Jones has identified there are lot of Ni/transition metal systems that have been produced and demonstrate LENR phenomena. This fact makes me quite optimistic about forth coming demonstrations.
The problem with the commercialization has been lack of adequate R&D funding for this objective. This lack of funding has ben because of dishonesty/conspiracy within establishment energy circles to maintain the cash- cow, buggy- whip energy source technology and to fund highly impractical and expensive new technology—for example, hot fusion that has no competitive chance of becoming practical. The big funding for LENR R&D has been dark, within corporate and government realms of interests. I consider Rossi is an unusual example of a persistent effort over a number of years with modest multi-million dollar funding to produce a practical/cheap LENR energy source. We shall see in the not too distant future.

And right in a way. When you look at the possibility of any good inventor showing an energy anomaly with nickel and hydrogen, there is already a high likelihood that it is possible. It has been done many times. Look at the inventors and researchers who have claimed to have seen thermal gain it before: at least 40 going back to 1989 and most were not in the USA. You have the Italians, the Japanese, the French, the Russians, the Indians, etc etc. Someone should compile a list. In fact it is probably closer to 60 successful repots or even more. Therefore it could be said that Rossi – if he were a decent inventor at all, should be able to demonstrate some kind of thermal anomaly similar to what was being done 28 years ago. I would not be surprised at all to see an honest COP of 1.5 or thereabouts. The key word is “honest” since Rossi is a genuinely dishonest individual. The problem which has plagued everyone in Nickel-hydrogen since the early days, and the reason there is no commercial product is low reliability and low COP. An outcome which would be worthwhile and interesting, worth of Thanksgiving - would be a anomaly with COP greater than 3 which is replicated by others immediately. You are probably right about that not happening. Highly doubtful. From: Brian Ahern<mailto:ahern_br...@msn.com> I would much prefer being wrong here. Being right gets the LENR world nothing new.
