Shortly after Andrea Rossi performed his Oct. 28th test of his 1Mw cold fusion reactor a non-vetted CNN article ran entitled, "COLD FUSION GENERATOR
WORKS BUT A.P. SITS ON ITS GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE ".
What caught my eye more than the article itself was a bit of unknown information by a comment left by "dimedozen" who says:
Andrea Rossi has been working in the alternative energy field for over 30 years. In Italy in the 1970s he patented a process to turn waste to fuel
and was quite successful. Unfortunately, his efforts stepped on the toes of both organized crime, who often uses waste management as one of their
core businesses, and the corrupt politicians they bought and paid for. Rossi was railroaded into prison on trumped up changes, much like Amanda Knox
was recently. Like Ms. Knox, Rossi was later acquitted, save for some lesser charges for which he was fined. It should also be mentioned that two
well-respected scientists were hounded out of the U.S. by the establishment in 1989 because of their claims that had a cold fusion device. Their
claims have been successfully replicated 1000s of times in the last 20 years. See lenr-canr.org for documentation.
Rossi also developed and demonstrated highly efficient thermocouplers for the Department of Defense. Before they went into production, his factory
burned to the ground, destroying important work and documents. He eventually was able to produce the devices but at much lower efficiency than
Rossi developed generators that ran off of biofuel. There were no reported problems with these and he subsequently sold this company for a profit.
He used that money to finance his energy catalyzer.
Admittedly, Rossi has not yet allowed independent verification of his e-Cat but given his past experiences and those of other alternative energy
researchers, his guarded and secretive behavior is understandable. He also does not have a patent for his device because the US patent office
considers cold fusion and perpetual motion machines to be in the same category (i.e. impossible). He does have an Italian patent but due to his past
history doing business in Italy, he refuses to market his device there, although his development and research has been carried out in that country.
Now with a better understanding of his background it makes more sense as to his actions.
I wrote Andrea Rossi and I was suprised at how quickly he responded. I had inquired that I was interested in his product and he replied:
We sell 1 MW plants, so far.
Can you spedify your needs?
I thought that was pretty cool.
In closing I am sharing a link to an article that I find interesting entitled, "Rebuttal to Krivit's Accusation that Andrea Rossi is a
I personally think Andrea Rossi's invention is the real deal until proven otherwise. I have been trying to put together investors in the Seattle
area to raise the 2 million needed to purchase one of his E-cats. I have never tried to do anything like that but I do have connections with people
who have money and my goal is to show the public that it works. He has stated multiple times he will not take any money until the finished product is
tested by the customer and they are satisfied. That sounds like a win-win scenario to me. One of his E-cats with power 700 to 750 homes.
Andrea Rossi is kind of a weirdo and it drives a lot of people crazy because his methods are unconventional but that doesn't mean his product
I am asking you to read the articles and let me know if your opinion changes.
