Today's episode from 26th November 2021. First this Friday: scientists are working on recreating the sun's energy here on earth in order to provide pollution-free and limitless power. It could even be a reality as early as 2030. But is nuclear fusion the answer to climate change? Then later, a recent survey found that 89% of workers said they were suffering from burnout. We have some simple steps to help you reclaim control. Mastering fusion would be the biggest breakthrough in human history since cavemen first cooked with fire, and scientists are growing increasingly excited that fusion reactors may become the dominant energy resource as early as 2030. From The Financial Times, John Thornhill examines nuclear fusion's biggest obstacles as he argues that it's our best chance to save the planet and energy resources. After an intense 20 months of pandemic work and life, many of us are now reaching a breaking point. For The Wall Street Journal, Ray A. Smith shows you how to retake control.
