Driving through Southwest Wyoming today. The landscape is littered with NG well heads. What a testament to America’s addiction to fossil fuel. What you don’t see is the massive — absolutely massive — destruction of the landscape for the sake of coal extraction. Such a juxtaposition to the Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier.

A bit of General fusion’s history standing tall with Jane Hotchkiss, Wally Johnston and GF VP of Business Development, Matt Miles in front of an early version of their compression system and then a glimpse into their future as we look at a 1/10 scale of their next build. Here’s a shout out to Canada’s leading team. We want to see financing back each of the companies boldly advancing our climate change solution: fusion soon enough to make a difference!
