    Rossi is a fraud, he's done this shit before.

    n 1974, Rossi registered a patent for an incineration system. In 1978, he wrote The Incineration of Waste and River Purification, published in Milan by Tecniche Nuove. He then founded Petroldragon, a company for developing oil from waste, which collapsed in the 1990s amidst allegations of dumping toxic waste,[11] and accusations of tax fraud. Its assets were seized, together with Rossi's personal assets, and Rossi was arrested pending trial. Rossi spent four years in prison working on his legal defense in 56 trials, 5 of which ended in convictions related to tax fraud.
    Let's not bring wild claims of new physics that nobody else knows about, perpetual motion machines, alien invaders.... to DailyKos.

    I just had a talk with a Tea bagger friend who went off on so many conspiracies and secret new energy sources (John hutchison) that it made my head spin.  Please, lets not do it here.

    •  OK Rossi has always been.....edgy (0+ / 0-)

      So would you like to be the one to tell Tom Darden (our green energy guy), founder of Cherokee Funds (1.2 billion and growing), major investor in Industrial Heat, that he just gave a couple mil to a scammity scammer? Good luck with that.

      •  You bet I would! he's either ignorant, or (5+ / 0-)

        highly susceptible to wild claims, as are many other people.

        And don't think that waving the credentials of fund managers is going to hold any weight with me.  Numerous studies show that the performance of fund managers form a nice bell curve around the performance of the S&P.  Darden ought to be ashamed of himself for considering this and I'll place a nice bet that he either loses his ass on this, or he bums it off on someone else like Rossi has just suckered him.

        •  OK you are on.$10? (0+ / 0-)

          Of course I am not claiming that this particular news proves anything. But I think it marks an interesting step on Mr Rossi's long march to validity/scamhood

          The following quote comes from an article on ecat world describing the acquisition of Rossis IP by Industrial Heat. In case you are not familiar with the Levy report, it was an independent test which was conducted by 7 scientists at the University of Upssala in Sweden.

          "It should be noted that in today’s press release, Industrial Heat cites not only the Levi report published last year as being the means of validating the technology and convincing them to make the E-Cat acquisition; they also mention that “in addition, performance validation tests were conducted in the presence of IH personnel and certified by an independent expert.”

        Yeah, four years in prison will do that to you.

        Lot of that four-year stuff going around.

        If a LENR system gets developed by Raffaello Follieri, on the other hand, that's a hot rod.

      Do you have any EVIDENCE that he has been scamming anybody?

      This line or agressive reasoning has been around since the man presented his ideas a few years back. Many are those who have to put a sock in it, because thera are no such evidence.

      Back in the days of trouble, Rossi was an inventor and entreprenbeur, caught up in a legislative mess. He did time and paid dearly for the experience.

      Do you have ANY TANGIBLE EVIDENCE that he is currently perpetrating a SCAM? Has he approach you for money?

      You and the people like you must wrap your head around the fact that not all things are KNOWN to man. We find out new things all the time. That is why we have science.

      For some reason, the physics that was set in concrete since the 1920's must be the universal truth and shall never be contested. Or so you and your likes seem to think.

      Well wrap your head around this. LENR is real. LENR is here. LENR will reshape the entire energy sector. Rossi is but one inventor/entrepreneur/scientist that is working har to place products on the shelf.

      So Mr Pollwatcher, get ready to be dumbstrucked really soon.
      So it goes.
