Homage to LENR ll -Schmuck Reportage by NYT

Hark! seekers of LENR news on mainstream outlets, for ye are finally rewarded by New York Times.
“This work is emphatically scientific,” Ms. Ilse-Neuman said. “Stefano is obviously concerned about the world, and this is his own aesthetic solution."

More philosophical reporting comes via a 1,600 word essay by Dr. Huw Price, PhD, Cambridge University.
Here are some excerpts:

…it seems increasingly improbable that all these findings are the result of fraud or error, as skeptics assert. But the only remaining alternative – that science simply made the wrong call when it dismissed cold fusion – is still almost invisible in serious scientific conversations and in the mainstream media.
… I suggested that it is because LENR is caught in what I called a ‘reputation trap’. Cold fusion has had such a bad name that scientists and journalists put their reputations at risk if they dare to express an interest in LENR.
More importantly, the reputation trap has pushed to the margins an idea that, if it does work, might be just what we need right now... I proposed in my essay that science should be more tolerant of its mavericks, when so much is at stake. If I’m right, then the reputation trap itself is the thing that should be condemned and ridiculed, not the science of LENR.
Perhaps it’s time for the science media of the world to find some backbone, face down the reputation trap, and start paying attention?

Your news curator suggests it is individual editors of science journals and big media who are responsible for morally reprehensible under-reportage.

LENR is the "just-in-time" fix for a mix of environmental, humanitarian and security problems.

While sipping Bailey coffee in Markdale’s Fire & Ice Café, an outline formed.

Anomalous energy was produced against a backdrop of the new\!/fire and alpine glaciers as the following elements fused:
On the smoky left side, a dirty boot (with 1989 engraved) appears in a landscape of dead trees, derelict factories, toppled transmission towers, a cluster of wobbly oil rigs and a ruptured nuclear dome.

Emerging on the right side:
A clean sky, forests, cows on green pastures and a bright streetscape bereft of utility poles and polluting gridlock.

Legacy energy infrastructure is the disruptive force, not LENR.

A graphic artist can create such a poster for Stockholm’s June 21st symposium on the deployment and impact of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR.)

Industrial Heat LLC Statement

Industrial Heat funds a 1 MW LENR-type reactor operating at an undisclosed industrial site. It is composed of about 100 modules and is called the E-cat. An independent report on a 350-day run is due in a few weeks -likely for investors only.

A more flexible version, the E-cat X is undergoing pre-production refinements in Florida. It generates electricity and heat, and is apparently for manufacture in the USA and in Europe, with the first installed unit slated for the UK. Speculation was that China and India would be early adopters.

Without specific references to the E-cats, a general statement of current outlook provided to Infinite Energy Magazine by Industrial Heat on March 10, 2016, says in part:

"We believe society suffers when technological advances and innovative experimentation are stifled; likewise, society and the industry suffer when results are promoted and claims are made without rigorous verification and precise measurement.

We value credibility through sound LENR research. That’s why any claims made about technologies in our portfolio should only be relied upon if affirmed by Industrial Heat and backed by reputable third parties who have verified our results in repeated experiments.

Our portfolio of work has never been stronger and we remain excited about the potential we see. This optimism is grounded in more than just hope, yet a great deal of work remains.

The energy challenges of today must be met with viable, clean, safe and affordable solutions."

The above signals caution and patience -and perhaps more regular and cordinated updates from the North American licencee of Leonardo Corporation. Stay tuned for updates.

Update # 1 Clarifications by DR. Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corp'n

Erik Tegnersson:
...While, as you correctly say, many people are now speculating that Industrial Heat has expanded their licensed Territory and/or acquired the license for the United Kingdom, such speculation is without merit.
At this time, there has been no change to the Territory licensed to Industrial Heat, LLC or any of its affiliated companies.
Leonardo Corporation remains the owner of ALL the E- Cat related intellectual property and continues to work with multiple licenses, including the great Swedish Team of Hydrofusion ( one of our pillars ) throughout Europe and the rest of the world."
Warm Regards,
Dr Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corporation.

What's Up at CERN --Bigger Than Higgs?

Read the headline -and wait for clarification.
From "At the moment, all we have are hints emerging from the debris of collisions within CERN’s showpiece particle smasher, the Large Hadron Collider. But if those hints firm up in the course of the coming weeks and months, it could be the big one."

Does the latest collision link to LENR?  Check in next week.
