Why fusion ignition is being hailed as a major breakthrough in fusion – a nuclear physicist explains

The promise of abundant, clean energy powered by nuclear fusion is one big step closer thanks to a new experiment. The results are a historic scientific milestone, but energy production remains a ways off.
The war in Ukraine will have major implications for energy and climate change, in Canada and the rest of the world, far into the future. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Frank Gunn

How the war in Ukraine will shape Canada’s energy policy — and climate change

New relationships between energy, geopolitical security and climate change policy flowing from the invasion of Ukraine are beginning to emerge, and the implications could be enormous.
