The elusive power source can’t save us from the need to cut emissions now. But a $20-billion reactor approaching completion in southern France could pave the way for the future

@NatGeo When £20 Billion was considered EXPENSIVE!!! .

£37 billion pounds. How much good could that have done for public health & the NHS- the actual people living in Britain- instead of being funnelled into private companies quickly set up to make money off the Covid crisis? Same story for PPE.

@NatGeo Neat! I've actually just recently been looking into details of stellar nucleosynthesis and nuclear fusion for a story I've been working on. This is a great read

@photoconductive @NatGeo ITER fusion is not clean! Are you aware that ITER Fusion uses Tritium produced from Nuclear Fission Reactors (CANDUs) & enriched Lithium 6 from Nuclear Weapons manufacturing? And ITER will produce a lot of radioactive waste?

@NatGeo Tritium and Lithium 6 are difficult to make, and T decays rapidly, so risk of fuel running out. High maintenance costs due to neutron and heat damage. High construction costs. Likely that fusion electricity will not be commercially viable.

@NatGeo This article misses some essential points. Says "approaching completion" but construction has been stopped for 6 months due to objections from the nuclear safety authority, ASN. When will the construction be authorised to restart? Seems like an essential point.

Interested in helping the environment, but don't like the use of government force to accomplish it? Then please consider joining the @LPNational and your state & local affiliate! The Libertarian Party is in favor of voluntarism and free market capitalism, not force and statism.
