Re: is this the Trump economy, or just reality?

AI can replace anybody in the coming future, that is the exact reason just getting a better education is not going to solve the problem. This coming issue will only be solved when mankind finally learns that it can't use every tool it has available, because humans have an inherent need to be useful....

Except fission is not fusion...

Fission has a tremendous amount of stored energy to burn...so to speak...fusion does not.

Oh, and by the way, fusion does not change the “state” of matter…that’s an easy task.
