Superficially, it's not a bad paper at all.
One thing which immediately springs to mind:
I don't see a control experiment with light
water mentioned anywhere. 

Also, loading of Pd by hydrogen (or deuterium)
produces cracks. I don't see thinning of the electrode
and fusing the result by current ruled out anywhere in
the paper.

Isolated, this is not at all damning. However, the cumulated
effect of other papers with sloppy design and irreproducibility
needs to be accounted.
