The DoE has twice promised to evaluate cold fusion claims fairly
Both times, when given a chance to keep that promise, the DOE failed
March 2005. In 2004, the DoE promised to fairly evaluate Cold Fusion claims with an impartial group of experts. Because the DoE place unreasonable limitations on the review process, the necessary information was not communicated to the assembled experts. Inevitably, this meant the review was riddled with error, misunderstanding, and outright rejection based largely on ignorance. Yet, the Review Summary promised to fairly evaluate any proposal that was properly submitted. But when the DoE is given a chance to fulfill this second promise in 2005, they failed again. Details of this travesty can be found in our new document The DoE Lies Again.
