Gods of science: Stephen Hawking and Brian Cox discuss mind over matter | Science | The Guardian
Well said guys.What problem do you hope scientists will have solved by the end of the century?
Stephen Hawking: Nuclear fusion. It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy without pollution or global warming.
Brian Cox: I share that view, that the provision of clean energy is of overwhelming importance. What frustrates me is that we know how to do it as physicists, how it works. It is an engineering solution that is within our grasp. I don't understand why we don't seem to want it enough at the moment. As a society, do you think we invest enough in scientific education and research?
SH: I don't think we invest enough. They are why we are not still in the Middle Ages. Many badly needed goals, like fusion and cancer cure, would be achieved much sooner if we invested more.
The Irish will waste more on wind turbines over the next decade than the entire global budget for magnetic confined plasma fusion research over the same time period. ITER - the way to new energy
That's what happens when greenie potheads, gombeen developers and former bike shop owners get to act out their "renewable" energy fantasies and scams. We must stop listening to ************************wits like these,and start listening to adults like Hawking and Cox.
