Drudge links a headline about Iter Fusion’s apparent breakthrough:

If Iter demonstrates that it is possible to build commercially-viable fusion reactors then it could become the experiment that saved the world in a century threatened by climate change and an expected three-fold increase in global energy demand.

While I would of course defer to M. Simon’s expertise on this subject, I expect environmentalists to be the first to object to — and do anything to oppose — the idea of unlimited, low cost, power for human beings.

That’s because they want our species to die, not improve.

And if there’s one thing environmentalists hate more than the human species, it’s any idea that might reduce them to irrelevancy.
