Fusion has the power to change the course of human history. It could curb climate change - a clear threat to human civilization. Fusion research is littered with great ideas that we have never tried. We have failed to support so many great ideas. This must change. We cannot wait. Our leaders must hear this call to action.
In August of 2015, Congressman Alan Grayson introduced HR.3440: The Fusion Innovation Act Of 2015. This bill calls for changes to federal US fusion funding. I decided to write his staff an open letter covering what changes we think are needed. Enjoy.
