Swedish Radio Pair Honored for Skeptical Series on Cold Fusion (LENR-Forum)

David Nygren has posted an article on the LENR-Forum about the ‘Golden Shovel’ awards made this weekend at a seminar held by the Swedish Association for Investigative Journalism in which an honorable mention was made for the work of science news editor Ulrika Björkstén and free-lance journalist Marcus Hansson.

The four part radio series was made before the publication of the Lugano E-Cat report last year, and was critical of the field of cold fusion in general, and suggested particularly that the work of Andrea Rossi was suspect and that he could have been fooling scientists (including Swedes Hanno Essen and Sven Kullander, both early investigators of the E-Cat) and using them to further his own ends.

English transcripts of the four radio programs in the series can be found here:

David Nygren writes:

Since the Science Radio at SR is considered to have high credibility, the reportage has made it difficult for other Swedish media to report on cold fusion and the E-Cat story.
