Nuclear Fussion for the Cruisin?
Local Scientist Takes Next Big Step in Renewable Energy
My name is Miles Timmons. Local scientist working for 6 God Labs(Greensboro "Boro" NC), recently we sucessfully converted helium and its matter into energy.

Safety Concerns with Nuclear Fusion
One of the main differences between FUSION and FISSION is unlike nuclear fission, the nuclear fusion reaction in a tokamak is a pretty safe reaction. The reasons that have made fusion so difficult are reason why it is safe: it is a supremely balanced reaction which is very sensitive to the conditions because the reaction will die if the plasma is too hot or cold, or if there is too much fuel or not enough, or too many contaminants, or if the magnetic fields are not set up just right to control the turbulence of the hot plasma.
Aside from accidents occurring, the main risk is of a leak of tritium, which is radioactive. However the amounts of tritium used in the experiment are very small – fractions of a gram at any time – and there are extremely careful procedures around the handling and containment of the fuel. With only one facility in the world equipped for the handling of tritium.
A Possible Switch?
Fusion power offers the prospect of an almost inexhaustible source of energy for future generations, but it also presents so far insurmountable scientific and engineering challenges.
Energy Rates would increase greatly especially during the first few years of implementation on this type of energy just because of the process to create it. The energy would end up lasting longer and being more efficient serving a huge purpose in weaning America off of fossil fuels. Obviously America would be a leading market for this technology but so would places such as China. With the country facing so many problems involving smog, the reactors and other forms of renewable energy could help the generational problem they are facing.
This type of energy in the future if it could travel through pipes and such pipes could be placed in a centralize location and rerouted to where the extra energy could be greatly used. One might never run out of gas if ran on alternative energy.
