A way to end the global warming debate forever

Imagine if we had a virtually unlimited source of cheap energy without the nasty CO2 emissions or nuclear waste. I’m not talking about the environmentalist’s idealised perceptions of renewable energy, a technology reliant on government assistance to survive. I’m talking about nuclear fusion.

Lockheed Martin caused quite a stir in the nuclear energy industry as it announced plans to begin work on a nuclear fusion reactor. Speaking at the recent Google “Solve for X” conference on February 7, Charles Chase of Lockheed’s “Skunk Works” said that a prototype 100-megawatt nuclear fusion machine will be tested in 2017, and that a fully operational machine should be grid-ready ten years from now.

A technology with the civilisational-developing, poverty-crushing potential of fossil fuels, but without the greenhouse gas emissions. If such a technology could become economically viable, it wouldn’t matter who was right about global warming. Everyone would agree that fusion would be the way to go, and likely, so would the market.

Some of the more radical environmentalists, however, remain opposed to economic growth, no matter the means used to facilitate it. You can’t win with these people, but their reaction to this development should reveal their true colours.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Make no mistake, most environmentalists will villify this new technology. Why? Because we will no longer have to bow down to them and their minimalist ideologies. Their most powerful weapon will be neutralised
    This will be portrayed by them and a good part of the media as the Devil incarnate.
