Biden Admin Touts Nuclear Fusion To Help Solve Climate Crisis (scam)

Well, good on them. Some major Warmists are all for nuclear energy, such as Michael “Robust Debate (and I’ll block you)” Mann. Most, though, will disagree with Biden and his Comrades. And there’s one tiny tiny problem

To Help Tackle Climate Crisis, White House Touts Nuclear Fusion

President Biden wants the warmth of many suns to power American homes and businesses.

The White House held a summit yesterday on fusion, which could someday become a major source of carbon-free energy. Fusion is made by pressing atoms together to create heavier ones. Nuclear fusion is the energy process that powers stars, with a low radiation and tremendous energy output.

Critics have long claimed that fusion energy, scientifically possible but commercially challenging, is decades away from powering homes or businesses. But the Biden administration, and a growing cadre of risk-taking investors, see fusion as an important tool on the path to an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

“We can lead the world with new energies and innovation and that is exactly what we are doing and why we are gathered here today,” White House climate adviser Gina McCarthy said. “We have to act on climate change so our country can win the 21st-century economy, and that’s what fusion helps to present us with—tremendous opportunities as well as challenges we know.”

Can you see the problem? Yeah, it doesn’t exist yet. It would be decades away. Provided the Usual Suspects do not sue to stop construction. And even experiments. I’ll give Brandon, Gina, and the others the benefit of the doubt that they’re serious, however, in the mean time, we need to be constructing Gen 5 and 6 nuclear power plants. If they’re serious about reducing fossil fueled power, especially coal (which I am not a fan of), let’s go nuclear. It will provide a heck of a lot more power, and be stable and reliable, than wind or solar, and take up a whole lot less land to do so.

The latest $1.5 trillion appropriations bill from Congress included $45 million for a new fusion program in which private companies will partner with DOE to build new fusion energy devices. It’s part of a record investment in fusion that will send more than $700 million to DOE’s Fusion Energy Sciences program.

Doesn’t seem like much, but, at least it’s something. But, consider that Solyndra received a $535 million loan (which pretty ended up flushed down the toilet, with a huge environmental mess left behind).

A Chinese project achieved fusion reactions for 17 minutes at 126 million degrees Fahrenheit, which is five times hotter than the sun, according to the White House. DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory achieved a “burning plasma” reaction, which demonstrated for the first time in any research facility a fusion reaction in which more energy was generated from the process than was required to initiate it (Energywire, Jan. 27). A European effort achieved a five-second, high-power pulse, which broke a 24-year-old record by doubling it.

How about just regular nuclear power plants?

    The article pointed out that this is a long term venture. Does Teach oppose research on fusion? We fully understand the winger position of never thinking ahead more than one year. Does Mr Teach think what when oil/gas/coal are no longer that we can switch over in a day?

    Teach typed: Doesn’t ($45 million) doesn’t seem like much.

    Over $10 million a year to ship DonJon back and forth between DC and Mar-a-Largo doesn’t seem like much but a couple million over 3 years to research the potential effects of global warming is wasteful.

      By all means, keep researching it. At the same time, it isn’t going to help in the near future absent a serendipitous breakthrough.

      Nobody except for idiot liberals (BIRM) thinks we can switch over in a day. Nice strawman.

      We fully understand the winger position of never thinking ahead more than one year.

      The irony is breathtaking.

    Maybe England isn’t filled with climate nutters in the government….

  3. Facts Matter says:

    The only thing AGW proves is that the left is afraid of anything and everything.

    They are afraid of Trump, Putin, Nuclear energy, Coal, Gas. Diesel, Methane Farting cows, Co2.

    the list is endless. Chicken littles all of them. We could have so solved their problem a long time ago but NO. They will just sue in court to block anything.

    Why? Because China and Russia do not want the USA to solve any energy problem and in fact they want us to become energy paupers so Russia and China can run roughshod over the world and execute all the scared little GRETA’s and any SCIENCY GUYS like Fauci and Dr. Mann.

    Will be a perfect 1984 ending to the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. Killing a super power by scaring the bejesus out of school children. Hah. What a world.

      You chose your moniker ironically, didn’t you? Well done.

      You are making little sense.

      • alanstorm says:

        You, OTOH, have never made sense.

        Kudos for consistency.

      • Facts Matter says:

        The easiest thing to do is lie. Ask any thief, murderer, or thug. I am sure you will hear them all admitting they did it in court or to the police.

        The Left has turned to Dark Money and PACs in record numbers all the while DENYING they have done so and bemoaning Dark money and PACS.

        Russia is actively being investigated for funding at least FOUR PACS whose sole purpose is to destroy America’s faith in the oil and gas industry. Ask DOWD. I am sure he could get you a job working for Russia since he is here with 200 posts a day bashing anything anti-AGW and ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN.

        I make perfect sense to people who understand the leftist’s strategy.



        NO BORDERS.

        CRITICAL RACE THEORY. You white and black and Hispanic and Asian people are RACIST WHITE NATIONALIST Nazis if you disagree with our goals.

        DESTRUCTION OF THE ECONOMY because they believe this is the only way to help us poor working-class people.


        Why? OVERPOPULATION. They don’t tell you a warming planet creates more landmass to farm and produce food.

        WHY are they so Against Russia? Hell Russia produces almost all fertilizers in the world. FOOD SHORTAGES INBOUND PEOPLE. They are genocidal maniacs who want to kill off black people in AFRICA FIRST, Then MUSLIMS. Guess who gets Russia’s fertilizer and Wheat?? Why that would BE their favorite Communists in CHINA.

        The LEFT is terrorists. Plain and simple. NOT DEMOCRATS>>>>>>LEFTISTS. There is a distinction, the problem is in the USA to be elected you need to pretend to be a terrorist or the left will EAT YOU.

    It is estimated to take 15 years to build a new nuke in the USA
    Their are only 4 3rd gen nukes already built

    The reason the Left doesn’t want nuclear is because it works. They’d rather be wrong than warm.

  7. JimS says:

    Nuclear fusion has been 10 years away for the last 70 years. Not to say it won’t happen, but you can’t plan on something that hasn’t even been demonstrated to work on the scale needed. One of the handy byproducts of large scale fusion would be waste disposal. The fusion plasma would ionize waste and break it down into individual atoms. These could be separated out magnetically and recovered for reuse.
    Fission works, and is safe, unless you let the russians run it. 🙂
    That said, I did read something recently about a promising idea involving saturating a palladium (if i remember correctly) crystal lattice with deuterium, then hitting it with gamma rays…. something NASA was fooling with.

    Not a shock – they’ve been promoting unworkable energy production schemes for decades.
