Cold Fusion Now recently sent a second letter to the Department of Energy requesting remedy to the lack of funding for LENR research.
Key quote from the response letter
“However, it is clear the topic of low energy nuclear reactions remains highly speculative and that the purported mechanism has not yet been validated by the physics community as a reality.”
Well, it all goes back to the unambiguous test that I referred to. There is a way to test a "black box", such as what Rossi has. He doesn't have to give up his secrets. There's a way, so the question is, will he do it? It's all up to Rossi to prove what he has. It is not up to anybody to believe in it.
