About this book

This carefully-researched book presents facts and arguments showing, beyond a doubt, that nuclear fusion power will not be technically feasible in time to satisfy the world's urgent need for climate-neutral energy.

The author describes the 70-year history of nuclear fusion; the vain attempts to construct an energy-generating nuclear fusion power reactor, and shows that even in the most optimistic scenario nuclear fusion, in spite of the claims of its proponents, will not be able to make a sizable contribution to the energy mix in this century, whatever the outcome of ITER. This implies that fusion power will not be a factor in combating climate change and that the race to save the climate with carbon-free energy will have been won or lost long before the first nuclear fusion power station comes online.

Aimed at the general public as well as those whose decisions directly affect energy policy, The Fairy Tale of Nuclear Fusion will be a valuable resource for informing future debates.

Media reviews

"A good non-fiction book is informative. A great non-fiction book also takes readers on a journey. When I got to the end of this book, I did indeed feel that this author had taken me on an amazing journey. The Fairy Tale of Nuclear Fusion, by L. J. Reinders, stands alone. No book about nuclear fusion research approaches the objective and sober examination that Reinders provides. His research, foundation, and synthesis make this book an exemplary historical resource."
