Hey guys,

Like most of you, I am deeply anticipating the eventual usage of fusion as a primary energy source.

 

However, my dad is skeptical and says that it will not be able to completley replace the need for fossil fuels such has oil as an energy source, yet it might eliminate the need for coal burning.

 

If Fusion can't render limited fossil fuels obsolete, I don't know what can.

A combination of technologies (renewables + improved batteries, fusion) will replace fossil fuels for use as energy. We'll probably still use them to make some plastics though.


What difference does it make?

For a country like Japan, I think they should use a combanation of Geothermal, wind, solar and hydro to compensate for nulcear power or oil.

fusion energy from the sun is already our primary energy source and is what creates fossil fuels

I am talking about Fusion generated artificially from Fusion reactors.

Theoretically, it is possible, but it will require several decades. Unfortunately,
