Andrea Rossi’s research into LENR power continues as his high temperature E-Cat proceeds well into its second month of continuous performance. However, some Italian researchers are calling for a stop to the research. They claim that it brings embarrassment to the Italian scientific community. They also state that Rossi operates outside of “traditional” Italian research, wasting human resources and governmental financial support.
Did you catch that last part? Governmental financial support has never been a part of Rossi’s endeavors. In fact, he has spoken out against “getting money to do work”, as he puts it, rather than working to get money. His entire research is supported by private funding, and he has stated that he would not take government money if it were offered.
Alberto Carpinteri also presented the theory that LENR may be causing activity in the earth’s crust. So, basically, Carpinteri is, apparently, blaming Rossi’s E-Cat for the recent Italian earthquakes.
As far as embarrassing the traditional Italian scientific community, you could say that they are doing a fine job of that, all by themselves. As one poster on E-Cat World said, perhaps the traditional Italian scientists are simply – jealous.
