Today is May 6th, 2016 and my laboratory, Julia Good Laboratories, has just discovered how to use nuclear fusion as an energy source. Nuclear fusion produces energy when two atoms combine to form one atom and energy is released in the process. This should not be confused with nuclear fission, which produces energy when an atom splits. The main safety concerns when using nuclear fusion are waste management, preventing accidents, and that nuclear power plants are a target for terrorism. Now that my laboratory has successfully created a way to use nuclear fusion as an energy source, the positive impacts are endless. There will be a decrease in the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere and it is less expensive and time consuming to use as an energy source. Nuclear energy is something humans can use until the end of time.
