Is new physics needed for the E-Cat? According to Andrea Rossi now, the answer is a definite no. Here’s a recent question and answer from the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

Dr Andrea Rossi
Do you confirm that the explication of your effect can be contained inside the Standard Model?

Now I can absolutely say yes.
If Rossi is correct here, and what he says can be demonstrated, it should be helpful in efforts to get the Rossi Effect accepted in the scientific community, and by extension in the wider world. Any claim of new physics would by definition meet with reflexive resistance.
Rossi’s reply here is more definite than in the past, and it seems he has some new level of understanding. He continues to praise the work of Dr. Norman Cook, and has said lately that reading Cook’s work is what has helped him with the development of his technology. Here are a few recent comments in reference to Cook.
“The paper of Prof. Norman Cook has to be studied, as all the things that this Prof writes”
“The study of the publications of Prof Norman Cook has improved my apparatuses, but not my tennis.”
Q:”After Sergio Focardi, who is the Prof of Physics you learnt most from?” A: “Prof. Norman Cook”
