The climate crisis is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. Climate change, the pace of which we are accelerating by hilariously increasing carbon dioxide emissions, is leading to natural disasters and extreme weather conditions all over the world. The consequences are droughts, floods and many other extreme phenomena, which directly threaten people, but make the global food supply even more difficult.
The governments of this world are trying to control the problem through a variety of measures and have only moderate success. The power supply is the crux of the problem. The global demand for energy is increasing every day. Most of the energy still comes from fossil fuels. If we are to solve the challenges of the twenty-first century without radically limiting our way of life, we need new technologies that can serve as fuel alternatives in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
In Germany in particular, we are increasingly dependent on renewable energies in the form of wind and solar energy. These forms of energy can make a valuable contribution to the energy mix, but the assumption that we can cover all of our energy needs from these sources is fanciful.
However, there is a technology that can help address the energy and climate crisis. I’m talking about nuclear fusion. The idea behind this technology dates back more than 100 years. The first man-made nuclear fusion was observed as early as 1917, long before nuclear fission. During this process, two atomic nuclei become a new nucleus…..
