    And at the same time oil is finite, meaning the total amount is fixed while we continue to burn more and more.

    When you are driving your car and your gas gauge continues to drop there is a point where you either stop at a gas station and get more or you run out leaving you stranded at the road side.

    People say what's the hurry, we have plenty of oil and that's true; for YOU.,.,.,.,.,but not your children. If you have no children and could care less for the next generation; then you be you.

    The rest of us do care and that is why we spend some of our time trying to wake up the rest of us BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE !!!

    Actually, it's true for our great great grand children, and fusion power will be perfected long before that.

    Even if true, fusion power will be perfected long before that. It may be perfected in the next 10 years. They are making great strides.

    Sure. What's the closest they've come to break-even?
    How many billions did they spend?

    They have come pretty close, actually. The ITER installation is supposed to produce above break-even.

    I hope you are right.
    We have nuclear powered submarines today. This same power could provide the electricity for our cities and that electric power could charge electric cars.
    I believe this is coming.
    It will either be a result of--
    an economic meltdown and restart
    or
    planned smooth transition
    in my opinion :)-

    How close, actually? For how many billions?
