OK so we have been down this road before with a bunch of failed experiments that could never be replicated but this time seems to be different.
The difference is the experiments have been replicated. A large commercial facility was developed and it's new owners would only buy it if it was proven to work. They bought it based on their lead scientists recommendation that it does indeed work.
The big secret is is the catalyst being used. No one knows exactly what it is other than a combinations of some base metals. If this thing is proven to work then expect Sharper Images to produce the home version followed by imitations made in China that will likely blow you and your house to hell. All kidding aside the implications are huge if this pans out. I say if it pans out because if he is running a scam then he is doing it on a scale that would make Bernanke blush.
Here is the full text of the letter Rossi sent to Obama.
Dear President Obama and Vice President Biden,
This letter is to inform you of a very important new energy producing device that was named “Energy Catalyzer” or “E-Cat” by it’s inventor, Dr. Andrea Rossi. The E-Cat was demonstrated and tested on October 6 at Bologna, Italy. Scientists from around the world came to see if this wonderful new machine was real. Many chemists and physicists tested and confirmed continuous production of heat and the safety of the E-Cat. The impact of the Energy Catalyzer development is far reaching and will give the world a clean, cheap, safe and unlimited energy source.
The history of the low temperature energy production devices goes back to the 1920s. In 1956 the term “cold fusion” was used in a New York Times article about Dr. Luis W. Alvarez’ and his experiments with muon-catalyzed fusion. In 1989 two electrochemists at University of Utah, Stanley Pons and colleague Martin Fleischmann, announced to the world that they had achieved nuclear fusion in a jar at room temperature. “When current is passed through heavy water from a palladium cathode, the palladium absorbs deuterium atoms, which are forced to fuse, generating heat and neutrons”, they said.
The evidence is now clear; these experiments are producing heat energy and the outputs are too large to be chemical exothermic reactions. These are obviously nuclear reactions! Yet some establishment fusion and fission scientists were/are determined to discredit any claims of nuclear reactions at room temperature. This was a self-serving reaction to protect their hot fusion industries and jobs. Over one thousand experiments have produced energy and validated the process.
In recent experiments, Dr. Francisco Piantelli has shown that Ni/H LENR (low-energy nuclear reactions) are easier to control and produce large amounts of energy. Dr. Andrea Rossi and research partner Dr. Sergio Focardi have made improvements on the Ni/H reaction process and now have a 1 MW Energy Catalyzer system ready for commercial use. They are shipping this E-Cat to the United States where it will be tested and installed by the first customer. Every American can benefit from cheap, safe, and abundant energy for homes, industry, and transportation. The manufacture and service of these E-Cats will bring lots of jobs in this new industry.
The Ni/H LENR reactor/E-Cat is real and has been validated by top scientists from around the world. Let’s welcome Dr. Rossi and his wonderful “Energy Catalyzer”. And lets not let those establishment physicists and skeptics stop the advancement of the wonderful E-Cats.
