Fusion--The Future

Gray Jr., Arthur; Miley, George; Brumlik, George
February 1979
National Review;2/2/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p162
The article comments on nuclear power and its potential role as a cheaper source of energy and electricity in the U.S. Man's progress has been directly correlated to the continuing reduction in the cost of energy. The surging costs of fossil fuels used in electricity generation, however, have reversed man's curve of cost efficiency and have impeded his progress. Nuclear technology is a low-cost energy alternative, but it requires major research and development outlays to bring it to fruition.
