Dragons, I have an energy source that's going to transform how we generate power. It's called: Fusion. Not to get too scientific but nuclear fusion is a form of energy production that supporters believe can produce clean and unlimited power.
Sound too good to be true? It is, at least for now.
In France, they've kicked off construction of the Iter project, the world's largest nuclear fusion project and it's expected to be operational in five years.
But what does operational mean? A functional fusion generator releases vast amounts of energy when heavy hydrogen atoms fuse together but this requires extreme heat, like 10 times hotter than the sun heat. And all it takes is seawater to power it. Crazy, right?
Zoom out: If produced, fusion generators can produce vast amounts of energy without harmful carbon dioxide fumes and radioactive waste. Carbon free energy could dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions slow down the effects of climate change.
We won't know if the project will work until five years from now but we're all crossing our fingers that it does.
