I looked at this source
for info on what people call LENR, and I'm reasonably
certain it's snake oil.
You see, in any nuclear reaction there is an initial state and there is final state (reaction products). Any decent "shop" will detect what these
are, before and after. Instrumentation is just pretty damn good these days. The fact that the alleged reactions still aren't characterized in any way
is way beyond just being suspicious, it's a giant red flag.
Binding energy of a nucleon has been measured with decent precision for a very large number of nuclei (I'll wager to say for all stable or
semi-stable elements), because of its importance to nuclear energy and weapons design. There is no mystery as to where the energy in a particular
fusion or fission reaction is coming from. Introduction of "LENR" is simply an attempt to obfuscate a pretty clear subject, and as I said too much
is swept under the rug for me to even consider it seriously.
