More fusion folly — Beyond Nuclear International

Fusion reactors present unsolved risks and still produce nuclear waste

More fusion folly — Beyond Nuclear International  Nuclear fusion has been a long-held ambition of the nuclear industry and
governments who support nuclear power for decades. Since the end of the
Second World War, governments around the world, backed by elements of their
scientific communities, have always lauded fusion power as the ‘next
step’ above and beyond fission that is almost within reach, yet many
billions has so far been spent over the past seven decades on what has
often been called by its critics an ‘energy pipedream’.

Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) has rarely commented on nuclear fusion, given such
energy projects have yet to be commercially realised. All have foundered
around the complex challenges in developing such technology, many of which
in the third decade of the 21st century remain unsolved. In summary, to
date, none of the experimental reactors in operation have produced more
energy than was put into them.
