I think...the future is know

The ability to harness nuclear fusion is 50 years in the future- and always will be.

Take this technology soon Mr. power Engineer... ;-)
US NAVY SPAWAR Cold Fusion Research Center has reported byproducts of a fusion reaction having taken place in their experiments. Pons and Fleischman were right! The MIT study which supposedly debunked cold fusion has been proven to be a fraud, please read the scientific papers on it! Even scientists are capable of being brainwashed. Just threaten them with ridicule...It works! Most scientists won't even look at Cold Fusion thanks to this tactic.
We have an institute for Plasma Physics over here? Heck yeah... BTW: Listen carefully: Not even NEAR the accent all the Germany in US movies have!

If you want to make something nuclear you will need the Jews.
Due to E=mc^2, all the machine is doing is converting ~0.6% of the deuterium/tritium mass into energy, so no energy is being 'created', it just so happens that the energy released is (in principle) greater than the energy required to release it. Also, those figures don't currently include for the energy circulating the electomagnets but this is discounted as it's envisioned that superconductive magnets will eventually be used that will be much more efficient.
..magnetic confinement of plasma is comparable to a 3D shape with hair standing perpendicular to the surface which needs to be combed down flat to the surface, without leaving a parting, in order for it to work effectively (a parting being synonymous with a weakness in the magnetic confinement); this is where the torus is favourable over the sphere, if you comb the hair down in the direction of the plasma flow, then there is no parting.
There are theories & mathematics that support rapidly spinning toroidal neutron stars and the rotating Kerr black hole supposedly has a ring singularity so the torus isn't unfamiliar in cosmology but the main reason a torus was chosen for the reactor was magnetic confinement...
The fusion reactor itself becomes radioactive after thirty years of use and needs to be replaced but this is still favourable compared to the fission reactor which produces waste on a regular basis during it's lifespan.
