Andrea Rossi Story
The infrastructures of developed countries were built around the use of fossil fuels. Even electricity is generated by the burning of fossil fuels in the form of coal or natural gas, or by hydroelectric plants that require flowing water. Converting these infrastructures to new sources of fuel may be accomplished, but the energy industry is rigidly pro-fossil fuels in most countries. Some countries, such as Germany, have worked diligently to convert to solar power, but the daily transportation, heating, and cooling needs of most populations are dependent on oil and gas. It is into this physical and philosophical conflict that a new player has emerged. Andrea Rossi, a scientist, entrepreneur, and inventor, stands on the cusp of greatness with a disputed discovery.
Cold fusion or LENR has been regarded as a “pathological science” since it first gained attention in 1989. And yet, Andrea Rossi has developed a machine that appears to produce excessive amounts of energy as a result of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. Third parties have tested the E-Cat units and confirmed the results. However, Rossi does not proscribe to traditional scientific and academic collaboration techniques. This, in combination with the steadfast contention by the scientific community that cold fusion does not exist, has made Rossi a pariah to other scientists.
Rossi is not alone in receiving ridicule for his work. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann were the first scientists who claimed to have discovered cold fusion. Forced into a premature public demonstration by their university, the duo presented their experiment to their own satisfaction in 1989. However, other scientists who were not even in possession of Fleischmann and Pons’ diagrams were not able to reproduce the experiment, and the two scientists were declared frauds.
This has been the fate of every scientist who foolishly publicizes his studies with cold fusion. The topic is known as a career killer, and for decades, any professor or scientist interested in cold fusion has had to investigate it in secret. This secrecy suits Andrea Rossi. He has suffered greatly in both personal and professional ways by sharing technology he has developed. The result is a serial inventor who has learned to keep his discoveries to himself until he is sure of his confidant. Here is the story of Andrea Rossi.
