Following are some links relating to LENR which I'm taking down for later reference.

Evidence for
  • Transmutations.
  • Electrodes in a cell hotter than the electrolyte, contrary to the usual situation. (Steven Krivit, video.)
Evidence against
  • LENR: Isotopes in purported transmutations (e.g., in Rossi's device) are at natural levels.  (Ron Maimon.)
  • LENR: Fusion of H+Ni -> Cu is endothermic. (Maimon says this is incorrect.)
  • Rossi's 1MW demonstration:  faulty calculations
  • Video, "2005 - U.S. Navy SPAWAR San Diego LENR (Cold Fusion) Research Lab: Infrared Measurements", (Steven Krivit.)
  • Rossi's US patent application:
  • Radio interview with Focardi:
  • What a different 12KW generator looks like in action:
