The following text is from the American Institute of Physics news release "Cold Fusion, Pulsars, and Z Particles at the APS Baltimore Meeting" dated May 15, 1989.

Douglas R. O. Morrison of the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland is the keeper of an informal cold fusion newsletter transmitted via electronic mail. At the Baltimore meeting he summarized results from around the world. Morrison claims to see a "regionalization" of findings: most groups in Western Europe —such as West Germany, France, and England (including the Harwell Laboratory where Martin Fleischmann is a consultant)—see no evidence to date for cold fusion, whereas support can be found in many reports from Eastern Europe. Scientists in Italy, Asia, and most of South America found positive results, Morrison said.

Morrison referred to himself as a specialist in "pathological science" or "wrong-result science." Comparing cold-fusion research to other spectacular (but short-lived) discoveries, such as "polywater," Morrison outlined what he perceived as a three-step chronology: (1) a striking result is announced and several confirmation experiments quickly appear; (2) gradually the positive experiments are balanced by an equal number of negative experiments; (3) finally an avalanche of negative reports appear.

[New Energy Times note: In June 1990, Morrison suspended Cold Fusion News and began publishing Cold Fusion Updates. Both publications are archived here. However, as indicated below, there are a number of issues in both series that we have been unable to locate. If you have these issues or know where we can find them, please let us know.]
