2022-04-13 Fusion And LCOE – Forever 20 Years Away?

Chris Gillespie The “net energy” is the catch. One **must** consider the LCOE – levelized cost of energy. If the fusion reactor requires that the energy used to fuse *and* make the fuels is greater than or equal to the output of the reactor, then the fusion reactor is a liability and is wasting energy.

They claim that their Laser Fusion demonstration is working. Uses boron and hydrogen.

2022-03-07 Nuclear Fusion Is A Waste, In My Opinion

There are other videos on YouTube besides JHAT. There is one from Tech for Luddites that states that obtaining a supply of tritium is the problem. Another video by a nuclear physicist says that the ITER **research** project ends in 2040 and another even more expensive project will then go to 2060, which by then

2021-10-07 Nuclear Fusion Confusion Explained

Sabine explains the difference between nuclear fusion reaction’s Qplasma and Qtotal. There is a huge difference between the two. To put out more power than is needed to keep the reactor running, the output of the fusion reaction must be greater than Qtotal. At the rate the experiments are progressing, it will be many decades

2021-09-29 Nuclear Fusion Will Always Be 20 Years Away

This video brings reality to the nuclear fusion gamble. He uses not encouraging words like: “This is a common bamboozling tactic that’s frequently used in fusion.” “Unethical, privately funded startup…” “…use the hype to sell their shares for higher than they bought them.” Especially discouraging is the difficulty of breeding tritium. It’s supposedly going to

2021-07-26 Nuclear Fusion Research Is A Waste Of Money

From FB comment Paddy Mendez The money spent on fusion research is wasted because thermonuclear fusion is *already* available, free of charge, to anyone who wants it. That wasted fusion money could have instead been spent on “pure scientific research” and “a great many advances [could] have come from them and many more to follow”
