The use of Fusion to fuel Power Stations is still Low Tech.
All they want to do, is what the current low tech Nuclear Power station do........Heat water to steam, then drive the turbine. A job currently done
much cheaper, and less pollutive than Nuclear, via coal and natural gas.
Heating water to produce steam, to drive a turbine, looses massive amounts of energy.
What is needed is a direct propulsion system to drive the turbine directly....................
And they already do it!!!..................Its called Gas Turbines.
Basically it is a Natural gas powered "Jet Engines" that are directly linked to the Electrical producing turbines, without the wasteful need to heat
massive amounts of water, and all the associated problems etc etc.
Country's that have large Natural Gas supplies, Like the USA, could easily use this tech, without dirty nuclear furnaces.
The coal reserves can be turned into liquid oil and more natural gas, those processes are already known.
All the Rubbish dumps produce methane, that could power the turbines. Recycled food and plants scraps, even paper, can be used to make Ethanol etc,
to power the Turbines.
Unfortunately, once again...the Sheeple are controlled, by the large corporations who are already on the gravy train and dont want to
