The following is what I am certain of with regard to cold fusion:
LENR is real:
Mike McKubre observed real LENR repeatedly at SRI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtweR_qGHEc
Pam Mosier-Boss observed real LENR repeatedly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLuTRReSIrg
This is not an exhaustive list, but it is sufficient for me to be certain that LENR exists.
As far as LENR+ and the E-Cat is concerned, the following 2 links gives me certainty:
The 2013 Ferrara report: http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.3913
The 2014 Lugano report: http://www.elforsk.se/Global/Omv%C3%A4rld_system/filer/LuganoReportSubmit.pdf
Beyond that, there are greater or lesser degrees of uncertainty, but no absolute certainty.
Did Darden and Vaughn observe excess heat? Probably.
Did the 1 year 1 MW plant fail? I don’t know, and this is the really big uncertainty.
Is Darden and Vaughn stabbing Rossi in the back? I don’t know.
Is Rossi difficult to work with? Almost certainly.
Is the value and certainty of Fabiano Fulvio’s testimony trashed? For me, thanks to this E-Cat bickering, certainly. Hopefully this is only temporary, but for now I cannot believe what he had to say.
I invite people to present links that show certainty or at least greater certainty on various aspects of the LENR and LENR+ than I have presented I am sure that I have failed to list many certainties. We need to keep track of these certainties and bring them to mind every now and then so as to not become discouraged. I will copy and save any links that improve certainty, and I will appreciate anyone giving us those links.
