Alpha decay of terrestrial actinides.

The bigger puzzle is He3, and where *it* comes from.

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?
