This is a course based on Beaudette, Excess Heat, Oak Grove Press, LLC (self-published), Second Edition, 2002. Page references are to the PDF, followed by the book page number. Then a link is given to a seminar covering that section of the book.

(When this resource was created, the book was available for free download. That permission has been rescinded, the link now points to a collection of excerpts. Excess Heat is available on Amazon.com, [1], currently for as little as about $12 including shipping in the U.S.)


The following Wikiversity scholars are enrolled in this course, which consists of readings of the chapters in Excess Heat. Each chapter is listed as a seminar, and scholars who have read each chapter may so indicate on the seminar page. Specific discussion may take place on the seminar page, general comments should be on the attached Talk page ("Discuss" tab at the top). Please, however, do not discuss a chapter or the discussion of a chapter, on the seminar page, unless you have read the chapter. You may, however, discuss comments and discussion here, and ask questions, on the attached Talk page, whether you have read the source or not.

Registered Wikiversity users may enroll in the overall course by placing ~~~~ at the end of this section.

According to New Energy Times, Pownall "completed his thesis for a master’s of science degree in science communication at Dublin City University, Ireland, in 2010." Pownall's thesis is similar to Beaudette's conclusions, and there are other sociological studies of cold fusion that come to similar conclusions:
