New energy project

Reader comment on item: Might the Saudis Blow Up Their Oil Infrastructure?

Submitted by Fodor, G.E. (United States), May 12, 2005 at 22:25

As you wrote, we cannot, we must not rely on foreign, especially Arab sources of petroleum.

I wish you would propose, with the input of many available highly qualified experts, that the United States initiate a Manhatten-type emergency project to find ways to controlled, "domesticated" fusion reaction, i.e., for the peaceful utilization of the hydrogen bomb.

Such projects existed in the 1970s, but unfortunately, were stopped, probably for political reasons.

Experts claim that (a) the fusion reaction may yield safer energy source than the presently used fission reaction; (b) once the process is established (very expensive work) the world would have a very cheap, essentially inexhaustible source of energy that (c) may become universally available.

Availability of such energy source, while it will not prevent wars fought in the name of a "god", it may indeed usher in universal peace and prosperity.

A Nation, a President may become justifyably immortal for such a work. Now that is LEGACY!

Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation for your comments and my very best wishes for your continued superb works.

George Fodor
