We Need Fusion Power

April 25, 2013

What problem do you hope scientists will have solved by the end of this century?  Dr. Stephen Hawking is telling us we need to perfect fusion power.  I agree with him.

Brian Cox:

Stephen Hawking:
Nuclear fusion.  It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy without pollution or global warming.

Brian Cox:
I share that view.  The provision of clean energy is of overwhelming importance.  What frustrates me is the fact that we know how to do it as physicists, we know that it works, and it seems to me to be an engineering solution that is within our grasp, if we want to do it.  I don’t understand why we don’t seem to want it enough, at the moment.
