The camera's physics directly measure power impinging on the sensors. On the way through the thermal calibration emissivity introduces bias in one direction and on the way through the power calibration it is inverted so it cancels out. There is a residual error that must be quantified in that, although (contrary to your statement about "visible light") the Optris IR camera is, well, IR, in order to obtain a full-spectrum integration of power the software must fit to Plank's curve and this apparently makes the grey body assumption (which is that emissivity doesn't vary with wavelength), which, as you point out, doesn't hold in reality. I've never seen any "skeptic" attempt to quantify this error, which rationality dictates be done. Moreover, they haven't even attempted to argue the sign of the error, let alone whether it is conceivably significant given that at the wavelengths below IR where the errors are most likely to occur (as Wein's approximation is accurate at higher wavelengths), the energies are lower not only in magnitude but in frequency.
I'd really like to see some genuine skepticism. I have my own reasons for skepticism but to put myself in the same class as those who refuse to do arithmetic is an insult to my intelligence.
For such SFBs Theory rules over Experiment.
Clue: If the Enlightenment has anything at all to offer, it is that Experiment rules over Theory.
The question isn't whether nuclear products are present.
The question is whether heat beyond that explicable by chemical means is present. If so, we can go ahead and posit a hoax or we can posit that we Just Don't Know what the physical mechanism is for producing the heat but Whatever It Is It Sure Is Interesting. In the latter position, we call this the beginning of scientific research.
For a clue exactly how clueless Mr. SFB is, one can look at Figure 3 of the paper and, using physics 101 application of the Stefan Boltzmann law, calculate the power output during the thermal excursion to be 10kW for 1kW input.
With that kind of power gain, the niceties Mr. SFB posits as essential measurements just don't matter to the importance. Its either a hoax or its a revolution that should receive more resources and attention than middle east politics and American Idol combined.
Vertical transmission means you close off the borders to transmission and only transmit from parent to child.

Do the hive-"people" really believe they will be able to keep the pro-freedom folks from seceding, taking with them an amount of land value commensurate with their population? After all, not only does the Declaration of Independence defend the moral principle, but the whole point of the abolition of slavery was to subdue those who thought they had a right to keep others from leaving them.
Well, how about Reservations?
