Honestly, for too long, too few have profited too much from selling the citizens of the world a natural resource owned by all of us. What gives them the right? It's time to take it back and ATS will be a site offering practical advice on just how to do it. Take that Mr. Standard Oil.

You realize that makes no sense. Excess heat is being produced yet for some reason additional heating is required through a process that claims to be producing more heat energy than it's using.
More on that thought.
However, Rossi heated the device with 2.7 kilowatts of electricity for four hours in advance. This amounts to 38.88 megaJoules of energy. He also heated the device during the phase which Lewan called “self-sustaining.” The input was 115 Watts for 3.5 hours. That’s 1.44 megaJoules of energy.
That’s a total energy loss of 8.82 MJ during a 7.5-hour period*. In other words, Rossi has demonstrated a water heater that is 78 percent efficient. This is inconsistent with his claims of having a device that produces substantial amounts of excess heat in comparison to input energy.
