Letter to the Editor of Nature (Nicholas Shaw)

The following post has been submitted by Nicholas Shaw.

Recently E-Cat World covered the secondary source article published in Nature about the failed google LENR experiments. I also was interested in those Nature publications when they came out, but I was disappointed by their inaccuracies of reporting on current successful LENR experiments in the literature. So I decided to write to the Correspondence section of Nature to write a rebuttal to the editorial articles in the form of a letter to the editor. Nature today responded to me and rejected my letter for publication. I am writing this post to submit the same letter to e-catworld in hopes you would consider publishing this letter on e-catworld.com:

Regarding and in response to: “Lessons from cold fusion, 30 years on” By: Philip Ball. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-01673-x
Published in the World View News Editorial section of Nature 569, 601 (2019).

Ball unfairly rejected recent evidence supporting the potential promise of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). Indeed, some recent literature has supported this possibility, and should have been included in his recent World View article. I write to bring these to light so that the full array of evidence is available. I do this by focusing on evidence brought forward by three different research teams within the past four years in respected peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Kidwell et al. (2015) described the observation of radio frequency emissions associated with excess heat generation that is not explained by electrochemistry. This publication describes in detail the successful experiments that occurred and the conditions used for these experiments. The researchers in this publication performed 335 experiments with a fraction resulting in excess heat. Lalik et al. (2015) inadvertently detected anomalous heat from the testing of passive autocatalytic recombination (PAR) technology. This publication describes that the authors accidentally found evidence of LENR in a PAR technology that has a similar environment to those described by Fleischmann and Pons in 1989. These authors warn of the danger of the ignorance about LENR processes because it could cause unanticipated failures in similar systems. Finally, in 2018, Kitamura et al. reported highly detailed replicable experiments that resulted in excess heat generation that cannot be explained by any chemical process or reaction. This group of researchers conducted experiments designed by the progression of experimental research completed between 2008-2015.
