There has been much criticism and skepticism of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cats. Since Rossi has been very secretive with the exact details concerning his inventions, the scientific community seems to scorn Rossi’s attempts to create a new form of energy.
The media, as well, has virtually ignored LENR, cold fusion, fusor units, and other developments that might displace significant portions of the petrochemical market until very recently. In an interview with Andrea Rossi on July 12 of this year, Free Energy Systems asked Rossi about the resistance he has encountered with his work. The interviewer asked:
“From your colleagues or the media, possibly anyone for that matter, have you experienced negative feedback or has everybody really embraced this revolutionary and evolutionary change?”
Rossi’s reply was predictable to those who are familiar with his philosophy. Ignoring opposition, criticism, and skepticism, he always says that the market will make the decision as to whether or not the E-Cat is successful. In this interview, however, he elaborates a little more with his philosophy on the matter:
“You know, it is normal, also in physics, that a system always resists to any external force that is applied. This is a physical principal and it (is, as well,) is an industrial and political principle. So, we are not an exception in this. But, in any case, I cannot complain because it is normal and we have received many sustained encouragements that have balanced the situation.”
Rossi then continued to sum up the situation by reminding that he and his team:
“…make proper plans, working properly, and as a logical consequence, the customers vote with dollars. If a thing works, it goes through, and if it does not work, it does not go through.”
We can only hope that Rossi is right in this marketing assessment. Skepticism exists on both sides of the matter, and many LENR advocates are skeptical about the influence of powerful corporations and governments on certification procedures and the media.
