Cold-fusion experiments

The article "Cold-Fusion Follies," July 10, seems reactionary. "Science News," a well-respected weekly science newsmagazine, has recently reported dozens of fascinating experiments currently being conducted upon cold fusion.The fact that cold fusion experiments are having a difficult time reproducing results does not mean that they are not using the scientific method or that their object is to defraud the public for personal gain. Cold fusion is a complex and poorly understood phenomenon, but it is not a hoax. The magazine's reports describe a growing body of experimental evidence supporting various aspects of cold fusion. A conference gathered in Italy recently to discuss such experimental results. It is time to give cold fusion the rigorous scientific examination, discussion, and reporting it demands. L. H. Woeltjen, San Luis Obispo, Calif.
