Do you mean big oil and coal, or green energy trying to reduce oil and coal? Pick a side, I guess. My side is what's better for humans in the long run. I don't see a near future without oil, but anywhere it can be eliminated is fine with me.

whats best for humans would be renewable energy like wind and hydro, but too many clowns are ***** deep in solar and nuclear so thats what keeps beimg erected. Even though it costs more and is less sustainable.

nuclear fusion is the future.

Bezos, microsoft and others are investing in it now.

The ITER, International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, is a projected funded by many countries located in France... they've been making fusion reactors for years, making them in a way that they generate more power than they use has been the obstacle.

China has hit the magic number they say makes Fusion feasible:

100 million degrees Celsius.

I'm no expert in power generation, however, I am fairly certain that a power plant that requires more electricity than it produces is in fact NOT a good power plant.

Plus nuclear waste can be sold to 3rd world ****holes that want to weaponize it, so of course thats the best way to do it!

nuclear fusion doesn't produce plutonium byproducts... but we do need fission reactors to help replenish the tritium used in fusion reactors, until we come up with a better scavenging process so we don't lose tritium during fusion, theoretically it can create as much as it consumes as a bi-product of fusion.

you can't have a reaction and harvest energy and have an endless reation and harvest power and have no biproducts and endless loop and dead seagulls and the whales and acid rain and bill nye
