I’m not discounting nuclear at all, I particularly think these small modular reactors look amazing, and while we’re still talking fission rather than future fusion (let’s go!) then these molten salt reactor designs look great. They’re basically impossible to meltdown. Essentially the reaction situation is hard to maintain and any failure results in the reaction stopping rather than going critical. Good stuff. However it still comes with the problem of long (loooonnnnnggg) lasting radioactive waste. I can’t wait for fusion to get going.
