New version (with references + appendix) of this draft now exists as item #123 in this list. Read it instead of this item.

Is it possible that data presented by Japanese researchers were simply invented to deceive those who came to the conference? Yes, this is possible. But transmutations of heavy elements in “cold fusion” experiments have been reported by at least ten different teams of researchers. The authors are Ph.D. scientists and recognized authorities in their fields. An international conspiracy of some kind? Yes, this is also possible. But accusations of that kind must be supported by some kind of evidence. As far as I know, nobody accused top cold fusion researchers of fabricating data in order to deceive. By the way, I think that John Bokris, a highly distinguished electrochemist from Texas A&M, was the first to report on nuclear transmutations of trans-helium elements. This was ten years ago.

I am also working on item #124 (A more penetrating review of one of S. Jones’ articles). A less penetrating review of his three articles presented at the 10th International Cold Fusion Conference has already been posted as item #113
