And the 10 to 100 million year fission supply can be
stretched to a billion years plus with hybrid fission-fusion
reactors that Teller continued to research well after this article.

"The sun is good for gigayears"Yes, and at present consumption fission on Earth might only last us 10 to 100 million years, so I admit that is a difference.
"peak fissible is less than half human life away."
Premium grade triple distilled extra virgin BULLSHIT! Thorium can be used in fission, it produces less and shorter lived radioactive decay products than Uranium, it makes almost no Plutonium that could be used in bombs, it is almost as common as Lead and unlike most present reactors that only use .7% of the Uranium (the U235) in a Thorium reactor you use 100% of the Thorium.
"No, I'm not interested in discussing that with you" Yes and I can see why, you don't want to be confused with the facts.
