What would fusion energy do for us?

#ortexgraves There are five main elements to the plots of my books, political corruption, big oil, fusion energy, conspiracy, and high tech computer gadgetry. Given the amount of energy that a fusion reactor can generate, (converted to electrical energy.) it is easy to see how developing the fusion process could be a pivotal moment in human history. Imagine the affect of building four fusion generating facilities, one in each quadrant of the U.S. (remember, one fusion power plant could, theoretically, produce 18 times as much power as one conventional fission type nuclear plant) Rolling blackouts are eliminated. Brownouts are eliminated. Electricity becomes very cheap. (If the politicians allow it.) Instead of four, build ten. What happens to the world oil demands? What are the consequences? I, for one, would love to tell the other oil producing countries of the world to keep their oil. Go drown in it. The need for oil will never vanish. Not unless someone figures out another way to lubricate our machines and create the plastic that we need. Again, what would be the consequences of an energy policy based on fusion energy? Tomorrow I will go into conspiracies. ortexgraves.com
