FUSION. The clean energy of the future. No carbon footprint. Bottomless. Cheap. Sound too good to be true? Well, if it looks like a duck…
Before I express my concerns, I want to acknowledge how monumental this step is. It’s taken 70 years to achieve what has just been done, so slow clap for the team that got us here. However, don’t go buying those fusion lamps just yet.
We still need a few more “breakthroughs” before fusion becomes the energy of the present. Think scale, transmission, and materials. It took us a long time to get here, so what’s another half-century…right?
