    The great fusion experiment

    It's back, it's hot and it's bigger than ever - will fusion power silence the critics for good, asks New Scientist

    SANDWICHED between the brackish waters of Takahoko lake and Obuchi lake in northern Japan lies a stretch of land that could change our planet's future. All our worries about sky-high oil prices and damaging greenhouse gases could fade if the Japanese government decides to make this the home of a project that could lead to almost unlimited amounts of cheap, clean electricity within 50 years.

    Scientists had originally earmarked the land at Rokkasho as one of two possible sites for a vast nuclear fusion experiment called ITER. The aim of ITER is to tame the same nuclear fusion process that powers the sun and produce 10 times as much energy as is it takes to run the machine. In June, after years of political wrangling, officials from six governments finally decided to build ITER in southern France. But despite losing out, Rokkasho may yet be home to another project that ...

    Now its 50 years, it used to be 20 years away, I'd say its just another welfare giveaway for plasma physicists and a waste of money.

    If magnetic confinement could be achieved, it would have been accomplished by now, and if it will be achieved it will only be an toxic mess, a super expensive device that will quidckly become lethally radioactive after a short time of operation. Then the same concerns about fission will arise for fusion.

    We'd be better off spending money somewhere else. The plasma boys have had their chance.

    In 50 years the plasma boys will say its 100 years away, while still collecting their paychecks.

    There is also the European experiment of which the following comment was made - "With 10 billion [euros], we could build 10,000MW offshore windfarms, delivering electricity for 7.5 million European households," said Jan Vande Putte of Greenpeace International.

    So we can spend 10billion euro on an experiment or 10billion euro on a certainity.

    This is utter madness. I have also read of criticism of wind farms since they do not meet peak demand...DUH of course not. But is the human race so stupid as to be incapable of building buffers into the system.  If every house had a 24hr buffer then the peak demand for household power plummets to a tenth i.e. we need one tenth of the number of power stations.
