Very many LENR acolytes have a need to tell, that they “believe” in LENR/cold fusion . This is weird to me, because actual reality exists without believing. We believe in god, in fairies, in pink invisible unicorn.
And some believe in LENR, the “new light”, as they call it. Somehow It seems to me that LENR requires believing, in order to exist at all.
But actual technologies do not require believing, if they are real. They just work or they don’t.
Biggest Norwegian newspaper, Aftenposten, wrote recently about our favorite topic; the wonderful e-cat of dottore Andrea Rossi. Though the article expresses some skepticism, it has the same naive viewpoint as most similar articles: it assumes LENR fairytale may be true and then goes on to speculating with it’s world saving potential .
LENR resembles e.g. paranormal phenomena: there is only anecdotal evidence.
And sadly, small pieces of crap do not add into convincing evidence; they only add to a bit larger pile of bullshit.
And the bigger the pile of bullshit, the more “excess heat” can you expect.
