a) An example of a problem for the Global Network of LENR MetaManagement
Doug Marker says:
"There is value in re-examining Abd's core remarks as to why researchers such as himself, prefer to investigate PdD vs NiH. Abd says convincingly (IMHO the evidence backs him up) that PdD research is completely open and shared plus more advanced and for these reasons more than any other he pursues PdD research.
On the other hand, NiH research is shrouded in deception (hiding real replication details from patents and publications), is also victim of patent warfare (Piantelli vs Rossi vs the world), so appears to be being 'milked' by greed and obfuscation (Some point to Rossi's antics and verbal contradictions as plain evidence).
A 'probability' that can be drawn from the above PdD vs NiH conflict is the reason for the latter's problems are because it is the one that really has scale-ability potential and thus is the more likely path to wealth & political power creation which in turn is why there is so much patent activity and why so many are fascinated by Andrea Rossi's on going circus.
We have a four way battle here. Critics of LENR's claims in one corner, Pro PdD in another, Pro NiH in another and stuck in the 4th corner is an increasingly angry world wanting answers from the other three as to when the question of LENR viability and likely progress will be decided.
The observers in the 4th corner know they don't have the knowledge or expertise to resolve the matter and most are intensely frustrated at the lack of progress by the other 3 in an era when energy generated from fossil fuels, and its side effects, are a critical global issue affecting the future of humanity.
Some of the critics of LENR appear happy to kill the idea of LENR off as effectively as they can. Some others of us believe there is a strong malicious intent there. The PdD and NiH camps are split over who is genuinely interested in research vs who is being greedy and plainly seeking power and profit.
Underpinning it all is the apparent inability of anyone in the 4 camps to resolve their case.
Thanks dear Doug- this is a central problem of the field, one of its cause is that the way to commercialization of LENR was found by an outsider - not a member of theof the Cold Fusion/LENR community. We can discuss why this happened so.
To add to this:
- the synchronicity of the weaknesses of NiH shown here- with the suggestions re NiH in paper No 3) below:
- what Ed Storms says- and he is right!-about the virtues and achievement of PdD
The electrolytic approach has shown that helium is the source of energy when deuterium is used. It also showed tritium can be made in the surface region where the helium forms. The electrolytic method shows that the effect can be initiated often enough and at a high enough power to prove that the novel effect is real. Without this proof, the claims for heat based on Ni-H2 would be very easy to ignore.
What he could add is: the vices and failures of PdD, however this does not change the axiom that we must systematically eliminate uncertainties hitting NiH. Real competition for Andrea Rossi is a MUST. More research focused on NiH and other transition metals-H LENR systems. It will come.
For example, the Piantelli explanation conflicts with basic chemistry and with what is known about LENR.
I have to confess that chemistry is sacro-saint for me too and I take offenses to it
as personal. Plus if what we know about LENR comes only from PdD why other systems cannot be different?

MAIN PHYSICAL NUCLEAR RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTS IN PLASMA ELECTROLYSIS WITH EXCESS HEAT REGISTRATION & THEIR INTERPRETATION IN FRAME OF ERZION CATALYSIS MODEL
by Yu. N. Bazhutov, A.I Gerasimova, V. P. Koretsky
The review of main our experimental results of Cold Nuclear Transmutation (CNT) investigations by plasma electrolysis method of diff erent water electrolytes are presented. It is shown the main physical results of our experiments. It is proposed the Erzion Catalysis Model for theoretical explanation of the generation of excess heat, new chemical elements and isotopes, X-ray and neutron radiation in these experiments. It is analyzed promising perspectives for such researches. Key words: Cold Nuclear Transmutation, plasma electrolysis, Erzion Catalysis Model, generation of excess heat
