So, continue wrecking environmental devastation and just hope we can continue to meet all our energy needs for the next century or more burning dead dinosaurs for power?
Pretty dumb plan when we have viable technology to help us start getting away from a fossil fuel based economy now
. At the very least it will help us conserve the fossil fuels necessary to make it until we do get fusion going (if ever).
Or are you happy to bet on the fusion long shot to avoid massive resource wars (oil, water, arable land) in the latter half of the 21st century?
