Trailer to “Andrea Rossi: Revolution” Film Released

For the last year or so Thomas Florek, a New Jersesy-based computer programmer, filmmaker, musician and radio host has been publishing video clips from a conversation he has had with Andrea Rossi. Now he has announced that he will be releasing a full-length film titled “Andrea Rossi: Revolution”, and has published a trailer for the film.

Florek, with his musical partner Doug Gentile have been early followers of Rossi and the E-Cat and have featured interviews with him on the Doug and Tom Radio show, and have also written the song ‘I believe in the E-Cat’.

Below is the trailer for the upcoming film:

Here is a link to a number of other clips from Florek’s interview with Rossi — some short, others longer — but all very interesting.

    Then why does no one call him Doctor, as it is his proper title?

    • bachcole

      I believe that he has a PhD is philosophy. And he was sharp in it in high school. That sets him up perfectly to be paradigm nimble.

  • Gerrit

    There is an interesting article over at The Spectator about the BBCs stance on global warming.

    In the article they are criticizing the BBC for blindly following scientific consensus.

    But at the same time they use the Fleischmann-Pons experiments as an example of discredited science, which is ironic of course.

    The comments by drjohngalan and myself could use some upvotes to gain a bit more prominence in the comment thread of the article.

    Prison cell innovation sessions may become a new offer from consultancy companies. Seems to free your mind…

    Where will this movie play? Does he have distribution? Or is it a freebee on his website?

  • Daniel Maris

    I’d take down the sucking synth in the mix!

  • georgehants

    Does the film show scenes of corrupt incompetent scientists jumping up and down, foaming at the mouth, shouting crackpot fraud etc.
    Does it have a happy ending with all these scientists being removed from their positions and sent out to find more suitable work,

    • Christina

      Oh, georgehants.

      Can’t we just be happy that the Rossi Effect is beginning to roll into the public consciousness and hope that it turns into an avalanche–s-o-o-n.

      • georgehants

        Ha, Christina, when all the other good scientific subjects that are incompetently debunked and denied by these people are being fairly and openly Researched, then we can celebrate science moving beyond the deserved comical reputation that it has in today’s society.

        • Christina

          The reputation science has today may be besmirched in many quarters and among the public, but as far as I am concerned, it’s still better than living in say, 1530, when people were dying of the common cold after it became something worse.

          If it’s all right to cheat your employer of a stapler because you need it at home, why isn’t it all right to cheat the tax payer out of trillions because your going to make your theory come out right even if you have to fudge it?

          Not the same? Oh, but it is. One theft is just more serious than the other. Little thefts are important because while most people stay at that level, some people will do worse things because they can get a way with it because there’s no one in the society anymore who advises that people shouldn’t do those things.

          So it seems we are reaping what we planted in the ’60’s. In everything, all across the political, economic, and social spectrum, we are reaping what was planted in the “sexual revolution” because we just didn’t revolt against the sexual mores, we revolted against all the laws written in the Bible and it’s quickly catching up in science and everywhere else.

          Those rules had a purpose, but we thought we were smarter, stronger, more intelligent than other generations.

          Let’s wake up and return to civility.

          • georgehants

            There was a murderer on the prowl last night who killed people.
            But not as many people are murdered today as in “1530”
            Are you saying we should stop trying to catch today’s murderers and just be thankful things are better now?
            Life is I think a process of continual progress to better things.
            Do you agree?

            • Omega Z

              George
              I would just suggest paint with a narrow brush. Most issues are at the top.
              You often paint with a broad brush & paint many of the innocent with those that are guilty. I suspect many of them are also upset with the hierarchy & the way things work. Complaining merely gets them terminated like any other whistle blower.

              Personally, I always include the caveat in my mind that your primarily attacking those at the top. In fact, on occasion, you include it yourself. Including such caveat can be a pain, but using a narrow brush negates the need in most cases.

              • georgehants

                Omega, all agreed, to try and put all those caveats on every comment is of course impracticable and I do try to make my position clear when all comments are taken into consideration.
                That is just a normal problem of comment pages.
                I must find one code word that means I am only attacking the guilty, only those that are incompetent and only those that are corrupt etc.
                Many thanks for good advice.

        • Obvious

          Indeed. Benjamin Franklin would be dismayed that after 250 years, still no progress has been obtained on the subject of improving the smell of flatulence, which has very important cross-cultural implications, whereas the modern equivalents of determining how many angels can fit on the head of a pin still gets much attention.

          • georgehants

            Obvious, ha, well you certainly have given the best answer that the usual scientist can manage when faced with the Truth.
            Just adding to the comical reputation that science has achieved.

            • Obvious

              GENTLEMEN,

              I have perused your late mathematical Prize Question, proposed in lieu of one in Natural Philosophy, for the ensuing year, viz. “Une figure quelconque donnee, on demande d’y inscrire le plus grand nombre de fois possible une autre figure plus-petite quelconque, qui est aussi donnee”. I was glad to find by these following Words, “l’Acadeemie a jugee que cette deecouverte, en eetendant les bornes de nos connoissances, ne seroit pas sans UTILITE”, that you esteem Utility an essential Point in your Enquiries, which has not always been the case with all Academies; and I conclude therefore that you have given this Question instead of a philosophical, or as the Learned express it, a physical one, because you could not at the time think of a physical one that promis’d greater_Utility.Permit me then humbly to propose one of that sort for your consideration, and through you, if you approve it, for the serious Enquiry of learned Physicians, Chemists, &c. of this enlightened Age. It is universally well known, That in digesting our common Food, there is created or produced in the Bowels of human Creatures, a great Quantity of Wind.

              That the permitting this Air to escape and mix with the Atmosphere, is usually offensive to the Company, from the fetid Smell that accompanies it.

              That all well-bred People therefore, to avoid giving such Offence, forcibly restrain the Efforts of Nature to discharge that Wind.

              That so retain’d contrary to Nature, it not only gives frequently great present Pain, but occasions future Diseases, such as habitual Cholics, Ruptures, Tympanies, &c. often destructive of the Constitution, & sometimes of Life itself.

              Were it not for the odiously offensive Smell accompanying such Escapes, polite People would probably be under no more Restraint in discharging such Wind in Company, than they are in spitting, or in blowing their Noses.

              My Prize Question therefore should be, To discover some Drug wholesome & not disagreable, to be mix’d with our common Food, or Sauces, that shall render the natural Discharges of Wind from our Bodies, not only inoffensive, but agreable as Perfumes.

              That this is not a chimerical Project, and altogether impossible, may appear from these Considerations. That we already have some Knowledge of Means capable of Varying that Smell. He that dines on stale Flesh, especially with much Addition of Onions, shall be able to afford a Stink that no Company can tolerate; while he that has lived for some Time on Vegetables only, shall have that Breath so pure as to be insensible to the most delicate Noses; and if he can manage so as to avoid the Report, he may any where give Vent to his Griefs, unnoticed. But as there are many to whom an entire Vegetable Diet would be inconvenient, and as a little Quick-Lime thrown into a Jakes will correct the amazing Quantity of fetid Air arising from the vast Mass of putrid Matter contain’d in such Places, and render it rather pleasing to the Smell, who knows but that a little Powder of Lime (or some other thing equivalent) taken in our Food, or perhaps a Glass of Limewater drank at Dinner, may have the same Effect on the Air produc’d in and issuing from our Bowels? This is worth the Experiment. Certain it is also that we have the Power of changing by slight Means the Smell of another Discharge, that of our Water. A few Stems of Asparagus eaten, shall give our Urine a disagreable Odour; and a Pill of Turpentine no bigger than a Pea, shall bestow on it the pleasing Smell of Violets. And why should it be thought more impossible in Nature, to find Means of making a Perfume of our Wind than of our Water?

              For the Encouragement of this Enquiry, (from the immortal Honour to be reasonably expected by the Inventor) let it be considered of how small Importance to Mankind, or to how small a Part of Mankind have been useful those Discoveries in Science that have heretofore made Philosophers famous. Are there twenty Men in Europe at this Day, the happier, or even the easier, for any Knowledge they have pick’d out of Aristotle? What Comfort can the Vortices of Descartes give to a Man who has Whirlwinds in his Bowels! The Knowledge of Newton’s mutual Attraction of the Particles of Matter, can it afford Ease to him who is rack’d by their mutual Repulsion, and the cruel Distensions it occasions? The Pleasure arising to a few Philosophers, from seeing, a few Times in their Life, the Threads of Light untwisted, and separated by the Newtonian Prism into seven Colours, can it be compared with the Ease and Comfort every Man living might feel seven times a Day, by discharging freely the Wind from his Bowels? Especially if it be converted into a Perfume: For the Pleasures of one Sense being little inferior to those of another, instead of pleasing the Sight he might delight the Smell of those about him, & make Numbers happy, which to a benevolent Mind must afford infinite Satisfaction. The generous Soul, who now endeavours to find out whether the Friends he entertains like best Claret or Burgundy, Champagne or Madeira, would then enquire also whether they chose Musk or Lilly, Rose or Bergamot, and provide accordingly. And surely such a Liberty of Expressing one’s Scent-iments, and pleasing one another, is of infinitely more Importance to human Happiness than that Liberty of the Press, or of abusing one another, which the English are so ready to fight & die for. — In short, this Invention, if compleated, would be, as Bacon expresses it, bringing Philosophy home to Mens Business and Bosoms. And I cannot but conclude, that in Comparison therewith, for universal and continual UTILITY, the Science of the Philosophers above-mentioned, even with the Addition, Gentlemen, of your “Figure quelconque” and the Figures inscrib’d in it, are, all together, scarcely worth a FART-HING.

              -Benjamin Franklin, circa 1781

          “comical reputation that [science] has in today’s society”

          Most lists of respected professions have scientist near the top. For example, according to a recent Harris poll, scientists were on top last year, tied with firefighters, and are in the top 4 this year. That doesn’t sound comical. See

          • georgehants

            I am of course referring to those members of society that are aware of the True situation.
            Do you think a poll of people knowing the facts of the corruption and incompetence regarding Cold Fusion would rate science highly.
            As a member of the fact police you are perfectly correct in your telling me off though.

        • Lui Dussan

          Science has a comical reputation? Okay George time for your meds.

    Great song, I hope the film will come soon.
