We need a Manhattan Project Plus to make fusion reactors part of the desired zero-emission outcome by mid-century. Why this is not a bigger deal than it is today is beyond me. Is it because the whole nuclear power industry is tainted by past accidents and spent fuel rods? Or is it because the general public doesn't understand the differences between fusion and fission energy? Because nuclear fusion is not nuclear fission. And although the investment needed is significant, the payoff for our planet will be enormous. Fusion reactors would produce zero emissions. With sourcing low-carbon materials and using low-emission supply chains, even construction could produce limited contributions to atmospheric warming.
