Beaudette's book gives an excellent guide to the scientific  
literature on the topic.

For one thing, it can be read as an annotated bibliography of the  
published literature on the topic, which is spread across a bunch of  
different scientific journals.  Starting by reading the papers  
recommended in his book is better than reading random papers on cold  
fusion found via Googling, for example.

Anyway, if you won't even take the time to read the available  
information on the topic, there's not much point in arguing with you  
on the topic.

You are ignorant on this topic.  I am less so.  You are arguing that  
I have not convinced you to become informed on the topic.     
Apparently not.

Fortunately, I have more interesting things to do with my time than  
try to convince you to become less ignorant on this topic '-)

I welcome arguments on the reality of cold fusion with anyone who is  
familiar with the relevant scientific literature.
