Fusion power out of our reach? (part 2)

Some hours ago I went to the Nature website. To my surprise, I found a news article called "Fusion power gets slammed". In it, Nature's reporter Mark Peplow comments on the Science's policy forum I talked about in a previous post.

It's always fun to watch a battle between Nature and Science.

It seems pretty clear that a number of fusion experts don't agree with Parkins' ideas. There are statements as strong as "It's complete rubbish from beginning to end [...] He knows nothing about what's happened in the past 15 years" (Ian Cook). Other people in the report agree with Parkins, though.

To me, as for any other layman in the fusion field, there is no way to know where lies the truth.
