Gerald Celente of the Trends Journal states what he sees happening in 2012 (rather bleek), including the continuing growth of the Occupy Movement. Last year he declared cold fusion the best investment opportunity of the 21st Century.

Update: Cold fusion competition heats up as a rival to Andrea Rossi emerges

Dear Dr Rossi,
First of all, congratulations for all your work.
Recently you have mentioned that the technology used in the domestic e-cat will differ from the one used in the 1MW plant.
Some articles mentioned that you achieved a COP around 40 during 5h30 during the 1MW test in self-sustained mode.
However, I assume that this COP would drop when the plant is working in continuous mode.
Other articles are mentioning you talking of a minimum COP of 6.
If we assume a COP of 10 for a domestic e-cat in continuous mode, a 20kW e-cat would consume 2kW of electricity 24h/day.
You also mentioned that an electric generator will come about 1 year after the e-cat launch.
Then if we want to have the e-cat producing electricity, it would need to produce more electricity than it consumes.
At least a 15% efficiency in the thermoelectric conversion would be needed for a 20kW e-cat to produce 1kW of electricity continuously (2kW for the e-cat + 1kW electrical output).
This raises the following questions:
1) Is the assumption of COP of 10 correct for domestic e-cat, or is it expected to be higher?
2) Will the domestic e-cat be able to shutdown itself to reduce the electrical consumption when no thermal energy is required?
3) Do you expect a thermoelectric conversion efficiency of 15% or higher for the electrical generator?
Thanks a lot, I wish you all the success you deserve.

Dear Nicolas Chauvin:
1- the COP we guarantee is 6
3- we need an efficiency of 35%

University of Bologna Still Willing to Work with Rossi Even Though Contract has been cancelled
January 26th, 2012 at 10:46 AM
Mr. Rossi: As I understand the little tiff you are having with the University of Bologna, they will not do the research without revealing your intellectual property rights. Of course you you will not sign such a contract, and rightfully so. Does this sum up this little disagreement?

DEAR BERNIE KOPPENHOFER:
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ALL THIS FUSS AROUND THE UNIVERSITY OF BOLOGNA STUFF: WE, THE E-CAT PEOPLE, MAKE R&D WITH CONSULTANTS , SUPPLIERS, PARTNERS AND UNIVERSITIES WE CHOOSE TIME BY TIME FOR SPECIFIC TASKS AND THIS DOES NOT BELONG TO PUBLIC INFORMATION. WHAT COUNTS FOR THE PUBLIC IS THAT OUR PRODUCTS WORK PROPERLY. AS USUAL THE PUPPET SNAKES ARE MAKING MUCH ADO FOR NOTHING, WITH THE HELP OF SOME PRIMADONNA (OR WANNABE SO).

National Instruments Instrumental in Rossi’s Ecat Case
Italian blog 22Passi and Swedish technology site NYTeknik both report that a new arrangement have been made with Rossi and the University of Bologna for e-Cat testing that includes National Instruments.
E-cat: Unibo close the contract, but open to cold fusion research
Admin note: Received via e-mail because JONP is down:
Dear Andrea Rossi,
It is being reported on the internet that the University of Bologna has terminated the contract with Leonardo Corporation due to non-payment. Sterling Allan has requested that I send you an email to ask you about this issue. My questions are as follows…
1) Is it true that the University of Bologna has terminated the
contract with Leonardo Corporation to test the E-Cat technology?
2) If it is true that the contract was terminated, what was your
reason for not following through with the contract and making the payment?
3) Some individuals are asserting the speculation that you did not pay the University of Bologna, because your first customer has yet to pay for the first E-Cat plant. Have you received any payment from the first customer (the military entity)?
4) Have you acquired any other source of funding?
My thinking is that the reason you did not follow through with the contract is because you are totally focusing on the factory that will produce the home E-Cat units. Even if you had the money to pay the University of Bologna, the money could be better spent on the factory. Although the testing by the University of Bologna would be a very good thing, it is really a side issue. You already know the technology works, and you don’t have to pay $500,000 to find that out.
On a totally unrelated issue, you probably know by now that
Defkalion has made it known they plan to perform a test of one of their Hyperion units with a “control” unit (no hydrogen), beside the actual unit (with hydrogen) that will produce heat. I am not convinced they have a valid technology to show at all. Even if they do, it could very well be a “copy cat” of your technology.
However, I would like to humbly request you consider a test of an E-Cat with a “control” unit. It is the one type of test of the E-Cat that was never performed. Although I know there are some snakes out there that will never be satisfied (because they have agendas), there are also some *honest* skeptics that are “sitting on the fence” so to speak. I think a control test of an E-Cat would provide absolutely irrefutable evidence of the E-Cat, and would bring many of the “fence sitters” to your side.
I’ve been doing my best to support and defend your work ever since January of 2011. It has not been easy at times, and I’ve faced a lot of criticism. In recent times, your competitors have been harassing me and attacking me. If you could perform such a test with a control, I would consider it a personal favor.
Thank you for all the hard work you are doing.
DEAR HANK: PLEASE PUBLISH EVERYWHERE YOU CAN: THE STATEMENT OF KRIVIT IS TOTALLY FALSE!!!
ABOUT THE PUBLIC TESTS I HAVE ALREADY SAID THAT WHEN OUR E-CAT WILL BE IN THE MARKET EVERYBODY WILL MAKE ALL THE TESTS HE WANTS.
Admin note: Per Vortex-l in an exchange with NYTeknik’s Mats Lewan:
Lewan: “Rossi also told me that “the work of the University of Bologna has already started with meetings together with National Instruments to prepare the whole system analysis.”

Comment on Independent eCat News regarding cancellation of research contract with the University of Bologna
No eCat Research For University Of Bologna

Hello Mr. Rossi,
I would like to know at what point are you with a different system to start the e-cat.
The first generation e-cat will start only with electricity or will you be able to make it start in other ways (chemical reaction-gas-others).
January 23rd, 2012 at 10:09 AM
Dear Alfonso Troisi:
It is not easy: other energy sources need space, while with an electric resistance the E-Cat will be very small…we are studying, it is not easy.

“Just launched a blog called “The Biggest Shift Ever” on how technology’s changing the world.”
