E-Cat / Defkalion Weekly -- February 23, 2012

Highlights this week include: the relationship between National Instruments and Rossi has been dissolved, replaced by another group; the talks between Dick Smith and Defkalion for a $1 million award have been tabled, awaiting the results of the 3rd party testing series commencing tomorrow, some of which may be broadcast online.

Once again we bring you a compilation of various news items about Andrea Rossi's E-Cat that have emerged since our February 16 compilation.

Mainstream news sources are indicated with the yellow highlight.

  • Production
    • The Case for ‘Working in Peace' on the E-Cat - One of the frequent criticisms of Andrea Rossi's E-Cat project is its secrecy. No one knows where the factory is located, who (other than Rossi) is involved in building it, who is working there, etc., — and all this leads to the speculation from some that there is actually nothing going on at all...

                  Dear Jim and Sterling

                  I really appreciate your time in assisting with this. Unfortunately, I don't like the secrecy provisions they demand, so let's wait a while and see what results they obtain and publish about the test they are doing in the next few days.
      • Defkalion: Independent Testing Will Begin Feb 24th - A post on Defkalion Green Technologies' forum addresses the Dick Smith offer to Andrea Rossi, and the beginning of third party testing of their Hyperion reactors.

    • LENR Groundwork That Cleared Rossi's Path Towards An ECat Revolution - Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) may have been given a breath of fresh air with Andrea Rossi's E-Cat breakthrough, but he isn't the first to experiment with these reactions, per se.

    • Open Letter to Pentagon/FBI/CIA/NSA: Cold Fusion/LENR Energy Age is Coming - I am convinced that this Cold Fusion reactor will transform the world: Empires will topple, billions of dollars in coal, natural gas and nuclear stocks, facilities, and equipment will be reduced to a fraction of what they are worth at this time. All of this will cause a great deal of stress in the world. The FBI, CIA, and NSA need to study the possibilities of a rapid change in the world economies – what will that entail and how to manage that big change? (RossiFocardiFusion; February 20, 2012)

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
