Dear Dr. Sing,

In a recent article, "Science and Scientists" in the Univ of KY's Energeia, you made the following observation: "We know that even the most scrupulous scientists can make mistakes (e.g. in the 'discovery' of polywater and cold fusion)."

You may be interested to learn that during the past ten years we have collected, read, written reviews, and published reviews of over 3,000 technical papers (mostly from technical conferences and peer-reviewed publications). Over 600 papers from over 200 laboratories in 30 countries have reported success in replicating or extending the original work of Pons and Fleischmann. Three groups offer "money-back guarantees" with their experimental products.

We have published the Fusion Fact newsletter for seven years (now a part of the Journal of New Energy); New Energy News newsletter for six years; and the Journal of New Energy (now in its fourth year). All of these materials are now available on a CD-ROM, complete with a copy of Adobe Acrobat for search and retrieval of any words, authors, phrases, etc.

I'm not an expert on polywater, however, a late retired scientist from IBM did find that water can retain certain types of information.

May I kindly suggest that you select something besides "cold fusion" as an example of scientific mistakes. In our own laboratory, now that we understand the source of much of the cold fusion effects, we are developing processes for on-site stabilization of high-level radioactive wastes.

Best personal regards, Hal Fox, editor, Journal of New Energy
