The Scientific Process

Since learning about Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat reactor, I’ve continued to read about its progress. I still see the lack of coverage in North American media as a problem because it is important for new, possibly game-changing technologies and scientific advancements to be publicized so that others can investigate them, as I said in my previous post. Here’s an example of what that process looks like via Steven B. Krivit’s New Energy Times blog: http://news.newenergytimes.net/. Indeed, Krivit continues to expose any aspects of Rossi’s work that are unprovable or fraudulent. I am sure (and you can tell this is true if you read some of the news snippets) that this process is uncomfortable for Rossi and his colleagues. It should be. Science is nothing if it cannot be scrutinized and validated. Unless independent researchers can replicate any process, the conclusion is that it simply doesn’t work. Rossi can certainly provide a “black box” version of his reactor to reputable scientists to test and evaluate. His proprietary processes can be protected. So he should have no qualms about offering up his discovery to independent review. Scientific investigation is not easy, but it is necessary. I need only mention Thalidomide to make it…
