(Published 2098) - LONDONIA - After JET in the early 2020s finally achieved nuclear fusion, several other generators across the world have sprung up.

However, these plants, once thought to be able to run forever, and power the world no matter what, are on the edge of failing to meet demand.

"In 2030," said Prof. Greene, "they were producing four hundred times as much was needed. Today, they can just about meet demand."

Many are blaming this on the moving pavements, aero-city-layers, 2000cm plasmoid screens and other modern amenities.

"They lead simple lives in those days," said Greene, "today, we don't. We need to act now. We just cannot build more plants. The corporostate wouldn't allow that."

Many plans have been suggested including using fossil fuels.

"Yeah," said Greene, "we didn't really know what a fossil fuel was. We had to go to the Metropolitian Museum of the Old Ages in Newest York, to find this 'book' called Energy for Pre-Schoolers. That has really opened my eyes."

Already plans have been made to construct several plants that will be equipped to deal with the new power sources.

"What's the world that could happen, eh?"
