Submission + - Where are we with commercially viable fusion?

sagman writes: As the US is about to authorize nearly a trillion USD to stimulate its economy, I feel like the only guy on planet Earth that is not asking why the US is not willing to take on the challenge of tackling commercially viable nuclear fusion. Does anyone know if this was considered by the Obama Administration and if so, why it was not adopted as the centerpiece (or at least as an important component) of a badly needed Energy Policy? Also, when was the last time we stepped back and evaluated where we are with respect to fusion power — is it really 50 or 100 years away? If we'd asked how many years away we were from the moon in 1950, would we have gotten the same answer?
