    If you're willing to spend the money there would be a much better return all around to do a Manhatten type project on solar panels. Get the efficiency up to 50-60% and fussion or fission are not at all necessary. Even better, attack the true weakness - energy storage. You might also want to look at fixing transmission (47% of the electricity we generate we lose in transmission).

    There are far better places to start with a Manhatten type project than nuclear.

They don't have the capability to capture the methane that is produced so it is continually being burned off, pumping scads of CO2 into the atmosphere. then they turn around and import natural gas.

    Its' PROPANE that was burned off but your point still stands. We did the same thing here for 50 years

    really? thanks for the correction. Our "terp" told us that it was methane.

    1. using socialism to bail out capitalism is like using your golf cart to jump-start an 18 wheeler.

    2. no, it does not just "take money" for fusion. It requires lots of innovation, testing, experimentation, processes, and new science for fusion to become a reality. It's like saying that all that is required to cure cancer is "money". Yeah, that and a whole bunch else, which who knows when it is going to show up.

    Heck, while we're at it, let's fund the research on how to become that Q species. Then we don't even need to produce energy. All it takes is money .
