The Coming of Free Energy By James Reed
This is going to be really bad for all the Greenies and environmentalists when we get fusion power and heaps of free energy, so we can have radiators going 24/7, air conditioners, clothes driers, you name it:
“In just 15 years, the U.S. will be producing unlimited amounts of nearly free, completely green energy. Not only would such an energy holy grail mean the end of humanity’s dependence on expensive fossil fuels, it would also be a panacea for climate change. Amazingly, this is not a science fiction. It’s actually about to become reality if a collaboration between MIT and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, a private company, is to be believed. The collaborators announced Friday in the journal Nature that they believe they are on the verge of cracking the code to nuclear fusion — and it could be commercially viable in just 15 years, according to The Guardian.
So far, fusion has been an extremely expensive laboratory experiment that requires more energy inputs than it outputs. However, the collaborators believe they’ve found a way to reverse the math. Their system, built upon a new class of super high-temperature superconductors and small, ultra-powerful magnets, would, for the first time, allow for a fusion reaction that outputs more energy than it takes in. Nuclear fusion is the be-all and end-all source of energy because, in theory, it’s practically unlimited and has almost no downside. It doesn’t put carbon into the atmosphere like the burning of fossil fuels or generate radioactive waste like nuclear fission, which is the technology in current nuclear power plants.”
The best part about this is that fusion will put all the Green Leftoids out of the game, destroying their key “we are carbon polluting the environment” rhetoric. There will be endless growth and prosperity, in this age of plenty for the next trillion years or so, give or take a few days. In the meantime, like Uncle Len, I am preparing for winter by collecting every form of high carbon-producing fuel I can burn to keep warm, however toxic it may be to me. But, kiddies, don’t do what your bad uncles do.
