At $400.00 per unit, an LED lens assembly would never pay for itself. Fortunately, Liberal idiot cities who have no common sense whatsoever, using tax payer money, started ordering massive quantities of these things, and as a result of the laws of supply and demand, more companies got into the busi...

On-site maintenance costs aren't exactly a selling point of small wind, where you have far more moving parts and more of them, distributed in a larger area.

"What is your proof?"

Also, the forum (a semiconductor journal rather than any of the superconductor journals) is an odd choice. That may have affected how this guy got this article published in the first place: the review panel wasn't qualified to judge the manuscript.

One consequence of this lecture is that we have reason to believe he thinks the money he sunk into Tri Alpha Energy is lost. He mentions fusion at about 8:55, but only as something that can't be relied upon to happen.

It seems to me that nothing Eric Lerner has done suggests he isn't a "solid scientist". It would seem a very reasonable critique to point out he is no academic and seems to be lacking a full set of counter-arguments. Getting banished from editing his own Wikipedia page? He's more interest...

I think the current news blackout (all my sources have dried up) is a move in the direction you suggest. Based on what? That's wild-eyed speculation. Given that actual success would be an immense credit to whomever got it going (hey, we're geniuses! Now give us more money so we can do even more sup...

Dittmar is getting a lot of press lately, but there have been some substantial questions raised about his data indicating that he refuses to acknowledge shortcomings in his own work.

Nonsense. There's the issue of fuel availability (FAR more boron and deuterium in the world than fissible uranium-235), which you keep glossing over. Your comment got me curious about what the real abundance of Boron, Thorium, and Uranium is . Boron is actually fairly scarce. In fact there is less ...
