Comment 19 by Reckless Monkey :

One science podcast I was listening to was citing China as being on track to produce solar panels (they have all our - Australia's best solar technology now) for same price per kilowatt hour as coal. If they can do this the argument is over and the need for fusion will be gone.

This is excellent news but solar is not a perfect replacement because you can't generated solar energy at night.

If they can do this the argument is over and the need for fusion will be gone. It will also be the point at which the coal mining industry in Australia crashes and we will realise that perhaps we should have backed ourselves.

Nah. Why bother developing industry when you can just shear a sheep or dig something out of the ground and sell it off cheap mate!
