Hot Fusion (Score: 1)

Such is true. Thats why many researchers have given up and left the field. They also told me about several approaches for hot (plasma) fusion that were not funded because of the tokamak "orthodoxy". These include the reverse field pinch (being done in Japan), the spheromak, magnatized target fusion, as well as combinations of these approaches.

The problem with the tokamak (and inertial confinement) fusion programs is the problem with government-funded science and technology in general. It become bureaucratic and rarely, if ever, leads to innovative developments.

I think that as researchers leave the government-funded fusion field, the field will become less active and the funding agencies may become more interested in alternative approaches, both hot and cold, since they will have less money to throw at it.

The other thing I learned about plasma fusion is that, for it to be really effective, an advanced fuel cycle (i.e. Li6-P or B11-P) is needed. Such a fuel cycle requires higher confinement energies than the tritium-deuterium fuel cycle.

The open question is if cold fusion is real, it may be like the Farnsworth fusor in that it cannot be scaled up to make useful amounts of energy. Only effective research will answer this question. I am still not convinced that "cold" fusion will lead to a useful energy production method.
