The question as to the validity of the Rossi Effect has been answered – at least to anyone who is not a hardened cynic. Various teams and individual replicators from around the globe are successfully replicating the anomalous heat that results when a combination of nickel powder and lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4) is combined in a reactor and stimulated (with heat and/or electromagnetic fields).
Although not ever test is a success and not everyone has achieved massive excess heat or self sustain, Alexander Parkhomov, Songsheng Jiang, and the recent Russian team of replicators (Lenz and Co) have obtained positive results. My sources indicate a second Russian team is preparing a separate report that will detail additional successful test runs – although it may not be published for a few weeks.
We have heard that the Lugano team (who conducted the month long test on a hot cat reactor provided by Andrea Rossi) is also working on a replication. My understanding is that they may have already seen excess heat. However, they are taking their time to perform additional testing. There can be no reasonable doubt that this amazing cold fusion effect does indeed produce excess heat.
Since this effect is indeed a reality, it means that a truly enormous energy breakthrough has been made. This discovery is not simply the discovery of how to make a solar panel a few percent more efficient or a method to optimize the geometry of wind turbines.
The high temperature E-Cat is simply a total, complete answer to the energy needs of mankind. For ages, scientists have dreamed of a solution that would provide a near limitless supply of cheap energy. Due to their urging governments around the world have spend billions of dollars on “hot fusion” research and improvements on traditional fission reactors. As an example, India and other countries are looking into the Thorium cycle as an alternative to Uranium in nuclear reactors. But the truth is that the Ni-LiAlH4 technology supersedes all these technologies. Even if magically a “hot fusion” reactor could come online tomorrow and start pumping electricity into the power grid (at best this will not happen for twenty or thirty years), the E-Cat could provide the same power for a fraction of the cost, size, and fuel.
Andrea Rossi, Leonardo Corporation, Industrial Heat, and Cherokee Investments hold the hottest of all potatoes in their hand. It is a real life, honest to goodness miracle on the order of the Red Sea being parted by Moses. The technology is not really “supernatural” in anyway, but the ability to induce fusion between hydrogen and nickel/lithium at such lower energies and temperatures is simply impossible according to “mainstream” science. If the scientists at MIT who originally conspired to squash cold fusion in 1989 had been exposed to the E-Cat producing kilowatts of power from grams of fuel (compared to perhaps watts from palladium deuterium cells), they would have simply fainted.
Now, due to the great success Andrea Rossi is reporting, certain individuals in the LENR field are attacking him and the technology. To be blunt, every single statement by Andrea Rossi about his technology has turned out to be fact since the beginning of this saga. For example, Andrea Rossi stated he would build his first one megawatt plant – and he did so. If he has stated his new low temperature plant is producing exceptional COP numbers and extended periods of self sustain, then I’m certain that is the truth.
I don’t any details of what exactly is going on inside of Industrial Heat other than the fact they are continuing the 350 day trial of the one megawatt plant (with the four 250 kilowatt reactors and the backup group of 15 kilowatt reactors) and testing various designs of the “hot cat.” However, to a certain extent, I don’t care. What matters to me most is the technology. From what we have been told the technology has evolved into something far beyond what is required to change the world. My general feeling is that a COP of 10 is where the technology goes from very useful to game changing. All my sources have indicated this COP has been exceeded.
Right now, we shouldn’t worry about bits of speculation about the inner workings of Industrial Heat. What matters is that the Holy Grail of energy technology is HERE. Most importantly, it is being replicated. My feeling is that in the weeks and months to come many additional parties will come forward showing successful replications. At some point, we will be able to figure out the critical parameters that allow for excess heat production. Once we know them and can present a “recipe” that is virtually guaranteed to work, there will be hundreds of teams of scientists around the world working on this technology.
Right now it can be difficult to fathom a global race to master this technology and it being the buzz of every news channel. But when the world recognizes this technology does indeed work, a technological and industrial revolution will begin that will stun everyone. The steam engine, the internal combustion engine, and electricity all brought about advancements to human civilization. When the “Rossi Effect” reaches critical mass, the revolution it starts will be second to none.
No one can predict the future. I don’t know the details of the future that is to come. My hope is that Industrial Heat and Andrea Rossi make a fortune while allowing this technology to be widely implemented around the world in the shortest time period possible. I’m now resigned to the fact this is going to happen – I just don’t want to wait any longer.
I’m impatient. The world is a horrid mess, and sometimes I lose hope for a better tomorrow. However, the E-Cat represents a beacon of hope (second only to my religious faith in Jesus Christ) for a future worth living for.
So ignore the hostility. So ignore the attacks. So ignore the accusations. So ignore the speculation.
The technology is real and works: that is what matters.
