The Penon ERV report apparently states that the 1MW E-Cat plant ran with an average COP of around 50 for the duration of the 1-year test. From what we have heard from people who say they have connections with Industrial Heat, IH does not dispute that the report states this — however they apparently do […]

I had hoped that eCatNews would die after my last post, with commenters using the announcement to organise a move to another site. The world is full of amazing people doing extraordinary things to make our lives better and our time here is too short to dwell on negativity. While I am grateful to all those who contributed to lifting the eCat veil, the school-yard sniping so often present is not something I wish to read every day. Unfortunately, with such a controversial subject, it must be policed, no matter how light the hand. For that reason, I now close the comments and banish arguments surrounding Rossi from my daily inbox.
If you wish to safeguard posts here for your research, now is the time to scrape the site.
No matter where you stand on the subject, I wish you well. Tear yourself away from all things toxic. Science is your friend, the Universe too grand to waste your focus on something so petty. You are better than that.
ETA: A request from long-time contributor, popeye – the following is one alternative gathering place – wavewatching.net/fringe I know nothing about the venue but suspect it will be sceptic-friendly.
