This is a post in response to an article titled “The Pied Piper of Bologna: Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat Con” which mentions E-Cat World by Steven B. Krivit posted on New Energy Times here: http://newenergytimes.com/v2/sr/RossiECat/Andrea-Rossi-Energy-Catalyzer-Investigation-Index.shtml
Steven Krivit writes “The Web site is maintained by Frank Ackland [sic], a man with no known affiliation or publicly available background, and whose business affiliation with Rossi is unknown.” Just to be clear, there is no business affiliation between myself and Andrea Rossi or Leonardo Corporation.
I started E-Cat World in April 2011 because I became convinced that Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi were demonstrating a valid technology back in their January 2011 news conference when they introduced the E-Cat, and I thought it was a topic worthy of attention and discussion. And we don’t just stick to covering the E-Cat here, either. We follow other LENR developments, along with related topics and technologies.
Of course I am very aware of the many unexpected twists and turns the story has taken since we started up here, and we are still waiting for a commercial E-Cat launch. I know some people have become frustrated, disillusioned and maybe bored along the way because of the waiting, and now the contentious legal case between Rossi and Industrial Heat — and that’s understandable. However, nearly 6 years after learning about the E-Cat, based on all I have learned so far, I still am convinced the technology is real and valid, and that it’s a topic worth taking seriously, especially when so few news sources are doing so.
I’ll continue to treat the E-Cat here as a serious new energy production technology with significant potential, however its success in the marketplace is yet to be determined. I’m also interested in the various E-Cat replication efforts that have been made, some of which have shown promising results — and I hope they continue. We will also continue to cover other interesting news and developments in related fields.
