Fusion & Congestion Pricing

Over the weekend I watched a TED Talk with Steven Cowley covering the idea of fusion as the future of energy. It was interesting enough because of the pure science behind fusion and even better my brain only had to hurt for 12 minutes to capture what Cowley had to say.

At the end of the TED Talk IBM's marketing gurus captured my attention with a commercial that was even more interesting. Two and half minutes to learn about Stockholm's congestion pricing project and how it has reduced traffic by 18 percent as well as provide incentive for the purchase of fuel efficient vehicles. London has also implemented a successful congestion pricing strategy.

Fusion is predicted to provide electricity sometime in the 2030s. Congestion pricing is reducing greenhouse gas emissions now.
