BRADENTON, Fla., Oct. 30, 2011 -- If you went to Google tonight and searched for the terms "E Cat Rossi Associated Press" you'd get 1,430,000 results from blogs, Web sites and magazines like Wired.com (UK edition). That number will grow .
Most are about how an Associated Press reporter attended the demonstration of a device - as the exclusive media person present during the whole test - that proceeded to generate 475,000 watts of power continuously for five hours with no input and just its secret Low Energy Nuclear Reaction device - a cold fusion reactor, in plain terms - providing power for the people who need it most - this world's billions of poor and hungry human beings.. AP Science writer Peter Svensson with Peswiki founder Sterling Allen at the workshops of Italian inventor and electrical engineer Andrea Rossi in Bologna, Italy. They were at Friday's final demonstration of a 1Mw cold fusion reactor that generated 470Kw of energy without any power input. Svensson had exclusive access during the test. The AP is sitting on the story, Joe Shea suspects. Photo: Sterling Allan/Peswiki There is substantial skepticism about Rossi and the reactor, and one critic has noted the inventor has had several brushes with the law over get-rich-quick schemes, the latest in the '90s, but always got short sentences and never went to jail. He would not be the first important inventor with an arrest record .
At the demonstration on this past Friday, Oct. 28, there was a large generator outside his workshop with cables running into the room where the demonstration was conducted. Rossi has explained to Pewwiki founder Sterling Allan that it was "absolutely cold" in the workshop and the generator was needed for heat in the fairly large space (the E Cat produces only steam usable for a turbine). Most of the videos of the demonstration show Rossi in a thin blue dress shirt, and one person present told me tonight it was "quite chilly" at the event. Most people are wearing jackets or sweaters inside, so that seems a plausible explanation. The A.P. has not yet reported anything, so we remain at least partly in the dark. In the video at left, below, sound of the generator is heard throughout, while the E Cat actually operates in complete silence. Touching it, I'm told, once can feel something bubblinside - apparently the water that makes the steam that is measured as output. The Event: Rossi E Cat Demo
Live Demo of 1Mw Cold Fusion Reactor
As for the crimes, I confess that I have been convicted of far worse and have gone to county jail once, at 16. At the same time, I've been on Page 1 in the Reader's Digest (March 1968), was invited to the White House to see the President, took the Brazilian Ambasador to dinner, was on the Hollywood LAPD Community-Police Advisory Board and also won a landmark Supreme Court First Amendment case, Shea v. Reno; I go to church every Sunday and try very hard to be a good person .
Under the circumstances that have prevailed in Rossi's life, I can see how desperation might drive a brilliant man to finagle for wealth in ways the courts always forgave. They forgave me for breaking into a cigarette machine, too, and Gov. Henry Bellmon pardoned me when I was 19. With 30 others, I invented serious journalism on the Internet, which is no small thing, when we began the American Reporter in 1995. This man, identified as Domenico Fioravanti, acted on behalf of the buyer in the transaction that purchased the 1Mw E Cat reactor for an unknown price and trucked it away. An Olympic gold medalist shares the same name. A printed signature on the transaction document was crossed out but still partly visible. It seemed to spell the abbreviation for "Colonel." Photo: Matt Lewans/NyTeknik Perhaps, like me, Rossi is a different man today. His scientific colleagues and supporters are legion, and they seem to think so. There have been no entries for Rossi in the police blotter since 1997, 14 years ago, according to his major critic, who admits he is paid for his work but will not say who pays. No one pays for our work except Google AdSense, the Benson County Farmer's News and the Progressive Populist .
But I suspect the world will wait a long time for the A.P. story. It appears, at least, that we've all been cheated of progress once again. The test was for a customer - his first name was "Colonel" - who immediately hooked up the 20-ft container it was placed in and drove it away. It is the A.P., after all, with its thousands of news outlets around the globe, which can really tell the world what has happened .
Ironically, now just a day later, 1.7 million people are without power in the blizzard hitting the Northeast, the New York Times reports. It has no story on the Rossi device as a home heater because the AP didn't write one yet. After you purchase it, the Rossi device, which is intended for homes and factories, will supply electricity for free forever. The Internet gave the U.S. economy a helluva jolt, but the E Cat would also keep 1.7 million people - an awful lot of broke families and hungry children among them - from shivering through this long cold night .
The technology has been vetted by people as diverse as scientists of U.S. Navy space and warfare division, NASA Chief Scientist Dennis Bushnell, Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson, the chairman of the energy committee of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences - who helps name the Nobel Prize winner in several sciences - and even the head of the Swedish Skeptics Society, there has not been a peep out of the A.P. since .
This reporter, in fact, was warned by someone named Jerome on its national desk in the early hours of Saturday morning not to be too quick to believe an A.P. Reporter was there - although his name, Peter Svensson, and picture with other journalists appears on some of those sites tonight - and I was criticized for "driving A.P. coverage" of the event .
Since the E Cat is just as important as the invention of the radio, the Internet, the light bulb and the atom bomb, and since - as DOE spokesman Sean Murphy told reporters in 2009 about the device's fundamental element, hydrogen - so it can completely replace oil by 2050, this reporter thought he was doing the A.P. a favor when he called up their national desk and told them about it just 30 hours or so before the test .
Even the fact that the test was performed for an unidentified customer whose representative, a man named Domenico Fioravanti, after the demonstration immediately bought and paid for it (for an undisclosed sum), has not persuaded the A.P. to risk shame, scorn and the rage of oil companies to do its job and report on what it sent its science writer to see. The mysterious Colonel is not the guy who will do that .
Associated Press Science Editor Kit Frieden (email@example.com) didn't answer her phone when we called, but I'll will bet you dollars to donuts 1,500 calls from A.P. members would not get her to budge .
"There are no conspiracies," an A.P. editor in London told me. We sure wonder. The reporter himself has blamed the lack of press on the scientist, Rossi, who is apparently a difficult guy to get along with. Remember this, inventors: cultivate a winning personality before you save the world with your invention, or it will die on the vine for lack of attention .
Murphy was not talking about cold fusion, then, just about hydrogen and how it will erode the trillions of dollars earned and billions in profits on which they pay they pay little or no tax .
The device that can do that, scientists and science writers and many more believe, is the cold fusion marvel Italian electrical engineer Andrea Rossi demonstrated all day long on Friday, before about 30 of them. When he immediately sold it, the University of Bologna in Italy, one of the oldest universities in the world, became the site of one of the greatest inventions in world history .
Even though it was my 3 a.m. call that got the A.P. writer sent to the demonstration, I had no stake other than deep interest in any part of it. My stake is humanity's stake: freedom from oil and all the loss, the wars and the terror it creates .
Please do your part to make certain the world finds out.
So now not only is Kevmo doing copy and paste duty on FR for the con artist Rossi, he's doing the same favor for the Progressive Populists.
Rossi's EE degree is fake. Left wing community activist Joe Shea should have done better research.
Amazing. You mean you actually read the article?
Why is it that so many prior facts don’t penetrate that thick skull of yours? Does this mean you acknowledge all else that is written in this article as factual? Do you see how powerful it is to see what someone’s enemies consider to be the facts on the ground? Well, never mind that, you won’t see it.
Can we hold you to the same level of accountability?
Not if the reporter is an honest reporter...in that case until he can prove it he would probably just not say anything. Also how do I know that reporter didn't sign an NDA or agree to not say anything negative without proof?
There is always a back story when someone isnt doing their job. Like when a police officer wont enforce an obvious law, or when a company refuses to make a profit on their own product or a real estate agent wont accept a higher offer than asked or when the IRS forgives a tax debt or a reporter doesnt report or the supreme court doesnt take up such a fundamental constitutional question as whether a foreign national should be president... the list goes on. I agree like what's up with Rossi and his history of scamming people? What's the odds of a scam artist finding "cold fusion" when real scientist that never scammed anyone didn't? Global warming scientists are excluded as they are scammers too :-)
There is substantial skepticism about Rossi and the reactor, and one critic has noted the inventor has had several brushes with the law over get-rich-quick schemes, the latest in the '90s, but always got short sentences and never went to jail. He would not be the first important inventor with an arrest record .Rossi was convicted. He was sentenced to jail time with the sentence suspended. He still had to pay fines.
how do I know that reporter didn’t sign an NDA
***Never heard of such a thing. I haven’t been involved with the press very much, but that doesn’t sound like any kind of reporter I’m familiar with.
I agree like what’s up with Rossi and his history of scamming people?
***He does not have a history of scamming people. Please check the facts on the ground before jumping to conclusions.

What’s the odds of a scam artist
***Jumping to conclusion
finding “cold fusion”
***This shows you aren’t current with what Rossi’s claims are. He did not find cold fusion. He catalyzed it.
when real scientist that never scammed anyone didn’t?
***Again, this shows a lack of familiarity with the evidence. The Pons-Fleischmann effect has been replicated more than 14,700 times.
Global warming scientists are excluded as they are scammers too :-)
***Well, we can agree on that, as far as I can tell.
Don’t forget that Rossi paid a fuel tax on what he sold, so the guvmint was complicit in allowing that it was a fuel in the first place.
What they have is a water heater, a tea kettle.
***Then you admit that it generated the heat it claimed to generate.
The article mentions a certain Italian Crime organization.
Knock off the personal attacks and seagull nonsense.
It appears that a relatively innocuous post responding to you was pulled.
This means I have nothing more to say to you about LENR. Bye.
To quote a recent article...Oh, wow! It's a genuine company. That makes all the difference. I am now a believer!
A genuine company, having taken delivery of such a thing, now belongs to the rare club that knows for a fact if this is real or not.
Just one thing: What's the name of the "genuine company"? For that matter, what reason to we have to believe that it's a "genuine company"? Oh, yes, because Rossi said so.
You never fail to deliver the gibberish, my friend.
Rather than answering my question, you’ve chosen to change the topic, which tells me that I’ve struck a nerve.
What was I asking again? Oh, yes, now I remember: so, about that fraudulent diploma Rossi proudly claims—why did you say it doesn’t matter? I forgot.
I have posted to you (unanswered) that these guys accused me of promoting fraud. That is not a personal attack?
I have no desire to answer posts to you, only to have them removed.
