This discussion has been about the Rossi work, which is based on a
secret process, and which is inadequately confirmed, there has merely
been a somewhat convincing demonstration that *something* is going on
in that thing. This is nothing like the accumulated evidence for cold
fusion, based on open and documented and reproducible experimental
techniques, widely confirmed.
I'm not interested in Rossi's work for the moment. Obviously, if
*Rossi's promises* are fulfilled, all bets are off. Rossi, by the
way, is also working on "unknown nuclear reaction," he'd merely be
succeeding, if he does, in demonstrating a far more vigorous reaction
than any prior reports.
So I'm going to ask, as to cold fusion in general, "what has been
promised" and what do promises have to do with science?
And... "convinced of what"?
