    Japanese nuclear power plants are based on 50 year old gen 2 technology. The future approaches. MIT is working on a new smaller, cheaper, fusion reactor that would obviate most of the problems of the fission reactors used now.

    The most encouraging thing is that this is the third such announcement in this technological space that I have seen from reputable organizations in the last year.

    Forget about “renewables”. They will never be economic, nor will they replace fossil fuels. If you want a future with clean, safe, economic energy to provide prosperity for everyone, all over the world. This is the direction we need to go.
