The whole "we have the most amazing thing in the world, but won't show it or tell you anything significant about it until 12 'scientists' (would an entomologist count?) agree to participate in our cheesy publicity stunt", makes the whole thing seem even more dubious than if they had merely claimed to "smash" a pretty heavily tested principal of physics.

If they had done what they claimed, and had offered even semi-plausible proof of it, they woudn't need to make over-heated challenges in the Economist--they might need ninjas to fight off the army of industrial spies that woud be trying to steal the technology, though.

They aren't behaving like people that really believe they are on the verge of drastically altering human society, and potentially acquiring unimaginable wealth and influence.

CadyshackCold-fusion is nucu...neuc...nuclear power, and doesnt use magnetics.

No it's not - that's Nuclear power. Fusion is a process of atoms smashing together creating massive amounts of energy. Simplest example of this is when 4 Hydrogen atoms smash into each other (4 protons) and create a Helium atom (Two Protons and Two Nuetrons). Cold Fusion is fusion at normal pressure and near room temperature instead of the huge pressure and temperature that is required for the fusion that takes place in the sun for example.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong ^^.

On topic - smells like bull to me ... I'd love it to be true but meh.

NurenigYea no more power bills, no more oil for cars, no more heating bills. everything could run itself all the time for free.

Oh im sure the goverment would place an outrageous tax on the free energy to make up for lost energy profits. It's what theyre doing to fuel cell cars in Oregon.

Sounds like utter bs to me. They are probably just trying to scam the investors.

By the way, your signature rules, Lupin.

Amen, amen, amen. Excellent points. Just ask yourself: "How would I act and what would I do if I had made such a world-shaking discovery." And it wouldn't be how these Irish con-men are doing it.
