At the end of every month from now on E-Cat Report is going to publish a summary of the results from the website ecatpoll.com. The purpose of the E-Cat Poll is to monitor the public’s view on the E-Cat and its impact. Understandably, these results currently contain some bias since in the early phase mostly enthusiasts know about this technology. It is going to be interesting to track any changes in opinion when the E-Cat makes it into mainstream media and as we are getting closer to the public demonstration of the 1MW – unit, at the end of October.
The main question is whether the E-Cat actually works or not – this is what the voters think:
- 55% believe that it works.
- 4% believe that it does not work.
- 41% believe that it maybe works.
The enormous potential of this invention and its implications (economical and geopolitical) are obvious. This begs the question whether someone will try to stop the release of the E-Cat. This is what the public think:
- 49% believe that someone will try to stop the release.
- 25% believe that no one will try to stop the release.
- 26% believe that someone maybe will try to stop the release.
Elaborating on the financial impact of the E-Cat, is it possible that this groundbreaking technology can help us avoid a global financial crisis – like for example a severe recession in Europe and the US? The results are:
- 35% believe that the new technology can help us avoid a global financial crisis.
- 35% believe that the new technology is not capable of helping us avoid a global financial crisis.
- 40% belive that the new technology maybe will help us avoid a global financial crisis.
As far as new technologies go – a room temperature nuclear process that is clean will probably be up there among the most important discoveries of all times. But does it deserve the epithet – “The greatest innovation in the history of mankind”?
- 38% of voters believe so.
- 23% of voters do not believe so.
- 39% of voters maybe believe so.
The greatest innovation of all times or not – is Andrea Rossi worthy of a Nobel Prize in physics if the E-Cat works? This is the public’s view:
- 68% believe he in that case deserves a Nobel Prize.
- 16% believe that he in that case does not deserve a Nobel Prize.
- 16% believe that he in that case maybe deserve a Nobel Prize.
The oil industry (and other energy producing industries) will suffer by this new technology. What does the public think about how long it will take before the oil industry is completely marginalized? Here are the answers:
- 11% believe it will take less than 5 years.
- 20% believe it will take between 5 to 10 years.
- 69% believe it will take more than 10 years.
Ultimately, for the end user, the question whether to invest or not into a new technology is down to the break-even value of that investment. This is how much the public would be prepared to pay for an E-Cat that warms their house:
- 57% would be prepared to pay $5,000 or less.
- 35% would be prepared to pay between $5,000 and $10,000.
- 8% would be prepared to pay more than $10,000.
Before we arrive at end user products, there will be bigger units around – capable of warming several houses etcetera. In fact – the first public launch will be the 1MW unit – scheduled for the end of October in Greece. Will the launch actually happen then – or will it be delayed? This is what the voters think:
- 39% believe that the launch will be delayed.
- 31% believe that the launch will be as scheduled.
- 30% believe that the launch maybe will be delayed.
If you, the readers, have any other questions that you think that the ECatPoll should include – please let us know in the commentary section and we will notify them.
