Around 80 free-energy enthusiasts filled the Mullumbimby Ex-Services club on Friday night to hear about the developments of Andrea Rossi’s cold-fusion claims.

Last week Echonetdaily reported that local free-energy advocate Sol Millin was convinced that the Italian inventor’s device, the E-cat, offered free energy.

On the information that reputable scientists collaborated Rossi’s claims, entrepreneur Dick Smith flew up from Sydney chief investigator of the Australian Skeptics, Ian Bryce, to also present at the meeting.

Both Mr Bryce and Mr Millin presented a detailed case.

Mr Bryce told the audience that testing such claims by inventors falls into three categories.

‘First, does the invention adhere to known physics; second, how credible is the scientist claiming the invention; and third, has there been an independent valuation of the invention.’

Mr Bryce says in this case, all three categories have doubts.

‘I am interested to see if more information becomes available,’ he said.
