The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Media reports of nuclear fusion are a good example of fake news.

Media reports of nuclear fusion are a good example of fake news. They never say that it involves irreversibly transmuting lithium and that we would rapidly reach economic limits of lithium supply in 100 years…so it is a ridiculous “solution”. Also they never say that the neutron emission is even higher than in nuclear fission, and so the fusion reactor itself would need to be decommissioned and buried as it is irradiated with neutrons. The catch is that fusion reactors use massive amounts of precious niobium that would all become buried and non-recyclable. We need niobium for many industries from surgical tools through to aircraft engines.https://www.facebook.com/groups/1021186047913052/
