Chapter 1: More Bang for the Buck

In Chapter 1 you’ll meet Michel Laberge, a Quebec-born engineer who worked for a high-tech commercial printing company until he turned 40 and had what he considered a mid-life crisis. Most men would buy a Porsche and start dyeing their graying hair. Not Laberge. He decided to dedicate his life to building a nuclear fusion power reactor on the cheap. His Vancouver-based company, General Fusion, is trying to do with tens of millions of dollars what government-led projects in Europe and North America are struggling to do with tens of billions. He understood the odds were against him when he started, but ask him today and he’ll tell it’s a 50-50 bet and the odds are getting better every day. If he pulls it off, clean and cheap nuclear power without the toxic waste just might be a reality in our lifetime.
