Re: The latest on fusion power, via S. Korea and New Jersey!

The problem with fusion isn't the danger of explosion, but the fact that there is still a lot of radioactive waste created that is not easily disposed of. Once nuclear physicists solve that problem, find a way to either neutralize the radiation or make it possible to reuse the fuel more than once (again, and again, and again...), nuclear fusion will indeed become the miracle power source we've been looking for. Passive means such as solar, thermal, wind, and hydro are all well and good, but still quite limited for widespread use.
