Throwforward Thursday 82: Energy (tomorrow and today)

We've talked about alternative and green energy solutions before on Throwforward Thursday (episode 6 - https://youtu.be/rI76SEIT2Ms and episode 24 - https://youtu.be/3nck4-WLYHo).


Today, we look not at the future but at something that happened last week as we got proof that nuclear fusion is possible. We knew it theoretically, and have had small successes in tokamak reactors around the world, but last week was absolute proof that we are on the right track.


Here are some links to the announcements:

In 2023 the world is facing an energy crunch. But by the end of this decade we are likely to have significant long-term, cheap and clean energy available all around the world. The future is coming faster than we imagined, and solving big problems in ways we couldn't have imagined.
