Unscramble the Blue Letters

To go any further you would have to have breeder technology. And breeder technology is fast breeders. And that's pretty dangerous. The big thing, on the right, is the lithium we have in the wolrd. And lithium is in sea water. That's the yellow line. And we have 30 million years wtorh of fusion fuel in sea water. Everybody can get it. That's why we want to do fusion. Is it cost-competitive? We make etitmaess of what we think it would cost to actually make a fisoun power plant. And we get within about the same prcie as current electricity.

To go any further you would have to have breeder technology. And breeder technology is fast breeders. And that's pretty dangerous. The big thing, on the right, is the lithium we have in the world. And lithium is in sea water. That's the yellow line. And we have 30 million years worth of fusion fuel in sea water. Everybody can get it. That's why we want to do fusion. Is it cost-competitive? We make estimates of what we think it would cost to actually make a fusion power plant. And we get within about the same price as current electricity.
