Ultimate cleantech: Nuclear Fusion

Have you ever wondered what the US defense budget might be? Around $680 billion dollars. But lets talk about something more interesting than the North American military industrial complex - What about the clean, abundant, and wonderful energy source of the future: Nuclear fusion. By 2020, it's hoped that scientists will be able to create 500 seconds of sustained nuclear fusion, at a cost of $30 billion dollars. Fear not, that's the good type of nuclear... And at $30B , it's a bargain, at only a 12th of the cost of the US war machine. Here is a great article from the NY times.

What wonderful things could happen if the world were not powered by the egos of men... The reigns of earth should be handed over to a roundtable of Tibetan monks, scientists and soft spoken engineers...

To be managed by wise women.
