    What does everyone think of this idea? I'm writing a paper on it, and I need some arguments as to why it wouldn't work or why its a bad idea. Here's a link to an explanation of LSP: http://www.aip.org/tip/INPHFA/vol-8/iss-2/p12.pdf [Broken]

    A limitless supply of energy for the world. Why aren't steps being taken to make LSP a reality? Is it better to just focus on R & D of fusion? I'm very optimistic about LSP, but maybe I'm missing something.

    It's a fine idea. But it would reduce the profits of the current power companies, at least in the short term, so it isn't happening.

    I love it. I read a lot about this a year ago - I don't have acrobat reader on this machine - is this link the one with the economic hypothesis as well?
