We are all believers. We just believe different things :D. There is a lot of woo in the alt energy movement, but that does not imply that it's ALL woo. One of the "believers" is the president of the swedish sceptic society, Professor Kulander. Of course he only believes it because it was demonstrated to him. Still, it can be a very elaborate hoax, everybody (even a sceptic) can be deceived.

Well, guess who's back in the news.

Over on Network World where I’ve had a gig as a columnist for about 18 years, in my Backspin column I wrote about a power generation system this week called E-Cat which is to be tested on October 28th. Continued...

The 28th??!!????

I just saw on TV that some bunch of Mayan Calendar fundys have re-re-re-re-calculated the Long Count calendar, and figured out that the original calculations didn't take into account that pesky Julian-Gregorian calendar shift, and the error has been accumulating and accumulating and accumulating and that the actual, real, no bullshit date for TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) is......

ready for this? It will blow your mind...

October 28th, 2011!!!!!!

You can always count on Lubos to speak his mind...


So what Andrea Rossi has achieved was to use the electricity from the power outlet to heat the water right beneath the boiling point at a 75 percent efficiency; something that a good housewife should be able to do in the kitchen at least twice a day. If Mr Rossi has a genuine reactor, a simple way to disprove this description of the details of his stupidity (or his naive magic) is heat the water/steam to 110 °C instead of 100.1 °C using the same gadget. ;-) This is not too much to ask for: typical steam generators in nuclear power plants are pressurized at 60-160 atmospheres and the temperature of water and steam is 220-315 °C.

Meanwhile, if an American consumer really paid $24 million for this ugly electric coffee machine, I recommend him to eat his feces for the dinner, too. He may send me $20 million (discount!) for the great know-how. It will be an equally intelligent investment and an equally progressive consumption of an equally revolutionary food product.

HUH? ---> "The latest news."

http://www.freeratio.org/showthread.php?t=308097

This is not a good place to get news.

This is a better place to get news, and they're not talking cold fusion.
