    It always seems odd to me when certain research concepts develop activists. I mean, that's just wierd.

    Much of this cold fusion is actually kind of hot by normal human ambient standards (while admittedly remaining cold compared to any working fusion reactions).

    I think we should have different classes. Luke warm fusion, pretty hot fusion, etc.

    About a year ago the 'believers' on eCat News objected to being called believers. This film had been announced and I used its title to jab at the cold fusion 'believers'. They stopped complaining about the label.

    Something strange happened. A blogger on the Scientific American blog web site censored pro-cold-fusion posts. Unfortunately, this plays into the hands of the whackos who think there is a conspiracy preventing the development of CF/LENR! What a crackup!

    This is the crappy original post:

    http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cocktail-party-physics/2012/10/29/genie-in-a-bottle-the-case-against-cold-fusion/

    Note that responses opposed to cold fusion were allowed. Then all comments were shut off. This sort of thing should not happen under Scientific American auspices, IMHO. I am not sure they even should have an "official blog" without supervision from the editing team.

    Here is the discussion on the Vortex list:

    It depends. I usually give Vortex a daily glance, looking for CF/LENR/Rossi bullshit mainly. It's an amusement and I get a few chuckles over a cup of coffee.

    I think auspices can be completely cured, nowadays. But really, if you just leave them alone they will usually resolve without surgery in a week or so.

    A fairly long ramble by Steve Krivit at the American Nuclear Society Meeting in San Diego. Three pieces in Youtube plus slides on Krivit's web site:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Zw_Hds8

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t2RfPfQALA

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlWwpr1DAjU

    The discussion is mostly theoretical, results are presented without details of materials, methods and data, and in my view, the most interesting aspect is the discussion (Q&A) which takes place in the third video starting around 07:00. I only browsed the thing. I didn't listen to every word. The basic theme seems to be "so many people get "excess heat" that there must be something to it." Krivit thinks that the best evidence for cold fusion is the isotope data. "isotopic anomalies"

    At 14:50 in the third video: "Have you heard of Andrea Rossi" (followed by laughter)

    Krivit seems quite diligent and reasonable if a bit optimistic. And diplomatic. On Rossi: "His work has nothing to do with science and nothing to do with technology".
