Nuclear fusion possibly around the corner…a hundred years or so?
It’s soon enough but nowish would be better, to silence all the global-warm-Nazis… so they HAVE TO resort to their guns after all, and their open hatred of Mankind…..before they are really really ready and truly in charge.
The great thing about nuclear fusion is that if it were to work as it should, our mass energy problems would virtually be solved.
There would only then be the problem of machines which are unconnected to any grid and require power at the point of operation, such as the Tesla Roadster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Roadster).
But in such a case that would be a relatively small problem to remedy. Let’s just hope that they’ve got their physics right and it doesn’t all go boom when they flip that switch…
