This is an interesting and apparently unbiased article, but something is
bothering me. Maybe, with all of the wisdom on this website, someone will know
the answer. If Helium is the byproduct of fusion energy production, where does
naturally occuring helium (the stuff in the Hindenburg and in party baloons)
come from? It is unlikely that ancient fusion energy production facilities
existed, I know there are underground deposits in and around Texas, but how did
this helium get there?
Funny you should ask, I saw this just the other day. I'm no expert, but it
seems like a fairly unbiased assessment of the state-of-the-art, despite the
"green" nature of the website.

Ahmad, Roy Herren, Group,
Hope you all are well. Global warming may be real. Let's
not ignore it. Let's go forward with
Fission and/or Fusion. I don't hear much from ITER in France (Fusion).
Let's hope they are
chugging along with their research and getting fusion ready for commercial
use. How cool would that
be. Yes, there are profileration concerns. The US and other countries
nuclear industries continue
to produce energy with little fanfare. Fukushima was an unfortunate
