An Indispensable Truth: How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet by Francis Chen

By Francis Chen

contemporary books have raised the general public cognizance in regards to the hazards of worldwide warming and weather switch. This booklet is meant to express the message that there's a answer. the answer is the fast improvement of hydrogen fusion power. This power resource is inexhaustible and, even if attaining fusion power is tough, the growth made some time past 20 years has been impressive. The physics matters are actually understood good sufficient that severe engineering can begin.The ebook starts off with a precis of weather swap and effort assets, attempting to provide a concise, transparent, neutral photo of the proof, break away conjecture and sensationalism. managed fusion -- the tough difficulties and creative suggestions -- is then defined utilizing many new concepts.The base line -- what has but to be performed, how lengthy it's going to take, and what sort of it is going to expense -- may well shock you.

Francis F. Chen's occupation in plasma has prolonged over 5 many years. His textbook Introduction to Plasma Physics has been used around the globe regularly seeing that 1974. he's the one physicist who has released considerably in either test and concept and on either magnetic fusion and laser fusion. As an outdoorsman and runner, he's deeply involved in the surroundings. at present he enjoys chook images and is a member of the Audubon Society.
