Endless Energy in Asia


Nuclear fusion – zerocarbon electric power produced from sea water in a doughnut-shaped reactor that imitates the sun – is also far closer to a reality than most people think. It could stop man-made global warming once and for all – and give the world limitless, clean energy for as long as humanity lasts. But while Britain, the United States and the European Union spend hundreds of billions on subsidies for wind farms, solar panels and power stations fuelled by wood pellets, fusion is being starved of funds. As a result, the ultimate prize of developing this revolutionary technology now looks certain to be claimed by China and South Korea – despite the fact that the science behind it was pioneered here and in the U.S.

The reluctance to spend big money on the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor means it has had to be funded by an unwieldy coalition including the U.S., China, India, Japan, the EU and South Korea. Insiders say the project is bogged down by bureaucracy


Britain’s leading green groups have condemned the practise of burning American hardwood trees in British power stations, including Drax Power Station in Yorkshire


Last week it emerged that the Drax Power Station uses U.S. firm Enviva as its main supplier. At least 80 per cent of Enviva’s wood pellets come from hardwood species. Much of the wood is cut from the unique ecosystem of the ‘bottomland’ forests of North Carolina then shipped 3,800 miles to Hull and Immingham
