Gary Taubes Witchhunt Against Bockris in 1990
Research and Compilation by Steven B. Krivit x
Summary By Steven B. Krivit

In 1990, journalist Gary Taubes, writing for Science magazine, pursued an investigation of pre-eminent electrochemist and low-energy nuclear reactions pioneer John O'Mara Bockris of Texas A&M University.

Taubes' hypothesis was that Bockris and/or his staff had committed science research misconduct by falsifying tritium results that were attained in a LENR experiment. Taubes ignored all the other results of tritium observations, including those of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in India.

In 1993, Bockris was the subject of a second round of academic persecution. Professor Frank Albert Cotton at Texas A&M University, led a request to revoke Bockris' title of "distinguished professor" because of Bockris' LENR transmutation research.
