There has been considerable discussion on this site and elsewhere regarding the conjecture that misapplied current clamps could have been responsible for incorrect measurement readings on the Lugano E-Cat report. We have not heard any comment on the topic from the authors of the report as yet, and many are hoping for some response to come from them.
Today, however, Andrea Rossi has made this comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about this issue:
This situation of the “changed position of the clamps” is very funny, while it is also an evidence of the correctness of the work of the Professors. Lacking real reasons to make a serious critic, these persons make “assumptions”: they “assume” that the clamps of the two PCE830 have been changed of position, and upon this “assumption” are writing all their lectures. I make you a simple example of what is going on: you are driving your car correctly, respecting all the laws related to driving, but suddenly a policeman stops you and says: ” I assume you were going overspeed, so you have to pay a fine”. No evidence at all that you have violated the speed limit, but, based on his assumption, he wants to fine you.
This situation is exactly the same.
THE SET UP OF THE EXPERIMENT, INCLUDED THE SET UP OF THE TWO PCE830 HAS BEEN DONE BY THE PROFESSORS, NOT BY ME. THE PROFESSORS CONTROLLED EVERY DAY THE CORRECTNESS OF ALL THE CONNECTIONS. ONE OF THEM (PROF ROLAND PETTERSON) WAS SPECIFICALLY DEDICATED TO THIS TASK. THE CLAMPS HAVE NEVER BEEN DISCONNECTED, EXCHANGED, DISPLACED OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
Obviously the persons that have an agenda finalized to try to say negative things, not having serious things or citics to make, now fish in the lake of “assumptions” and “hypotesis”. From this lake you can fish out all the monsters you want, being just “assumptions”.
Photos: I was not allowed to make photos and therefore I do not have any photo. The Professors know perfectly how the clamps have been put and know perfectly that no displacement or changement has been done.
The level of this critic is so low, that it is not worth the time of an answer, so, as you rightly wrote, the temptation to spam it has crossed my brain, but you are always so kind that I decided to answer
We do know that Andrea Rossi was at the testing site and must have seen the setup of the test. It’s interesting that he names Roland Pettersson here as the one responsible for the management of all the connections involved. Perhaps he will address the question at some point.
