Germany is about to come up with a Nuclear FUSION reactor. Can it be economical and practical?

Pranay had posted

The answer is to progress Fusion research and deploy renewables. We know that renewables work now and are effective. We hope that in the future, fusion will be better aga



Agreed but my worry about fusion is that if it ever comes near being feasible it will be parasitised - even if it could actually produce clean cheap energy then the large industries who can actually manufacture the parts would all price their parts so that the end result would be only-slightly cheaper than whatever else is around at the time. With wind at the moment you could put a ~0.5 to 2kW generator on every property in the country that would produce power at >2p/KWh if you mass produced them. The problem is you need to invest to mass produce them and if two companies do it then the profit margin drops and its better to have the money in competing energy company shares. The current government wont do it. The same should go for solar but the start-up costs are quite a bit more there but it should be possible to build a float-glass type approach to PV manufacture that works out cheaper than roof sheets or tiles. These would effectively generate free electricity.

The US elections is not the only elections that should be on your radar. UN might and should have a women Secretary General

Where did a sec-gem being a women come from? Voting for someone simply because she is a woman is just absurd. Women are equally capable of being incompetent, evil, corrupt as men, what makes them more saint like.

Despite Bommai judgment the misuse of Article 356 is taking place, the Judiciary can and should stop its misuse

In view of the recent events, it can be said that the misuse of the Red Letter of the Constitution is still prevalent among the central govt, for enforcing its own will on the state govts. This mostly happens in case of ideological differences between the central and state govts. Since independence, almost all states have gone under the Presidents rule at least once. In most cases, the state under Presidents rule is under a different political party a.c.t. centres political party, which leads to differences on administration measures to be employed in the state and the methods to implement the social welfare schemes
