Hello Earthlings! In today’s episode, our host Lisa Ann Pinkerton (CEO of Technica Communications), and our guest Randall Volberg (Type One Energy), discuss the potential benefits of Nuclear Fusion. We speak about the differences between the different types of nuclear fusion reactor design and how they can be used to provide clean highly dense energy for the planet.
Throughout the episode, we have a comprehensive discussion about the challenges associated with nuclear power and insights and potential solutions to address the issues of clean renewable energy and nuclear waste. Join us on this enlightening journey as we explore pathways to a more sustainable and secure future for our energy!
This episode is a continuation of our exploration of nuclear energy which began in Season 1 episode 6 titled, “To Nuclear or Not.” The focus of that show centered around the nuclear fission technology such as small modular reactors (SMRs) and the question of keeping existing plants open.
What is the difference between a stellarator and a tokamak?
What is nuclear fusion? Why is it better than fission?
How nuclear fission helps the environment
How long until we can actually use this amazing technology?
Also, on today’s show we are starting a new segment where we highlight people using their creativity and passion to make the world a better place. Today’s focus is on Sungai Watch, a company founded by the siblings Gary, Kelly and Sam Bencheghib in Bali, Indonesia. Their simple trash barriers and community organizing is reducing the plastic pollution in Indonesia’s waterways. So far they, along with their 85 river warriors, have successfully removed 3 million pounds of plastic waste, in 9 villages, with 180 floating plastic barriers and over 700 community cleanups.
