Chapter 422 The Second Year-End Summary (2)
- Once the nuclear fusion power station was built, organic materials could be cheaply synthesized on a large scale through cheap electricity, such as synthetic fuels and other chemicals. It would be disastrous to all the oil-producing countries. Of course, petroleum would still be useful, but it would be used mainly in chemical engineering research and not used by cars and other vehicles.
- Without a doubt, technology could help reform agriculture as well. Through the advancement in nuclear fusion technology, humans could build a mega intelligent factory for plant cultivation. The factory would be full of plant cultivation buildings that were dozens of stories in height. Every building floor would be used to cultivate different grains and vegetables, and solar lamps would be installed on the ceiling since electricity was cheap. Half of the 1.8 billion acres of land reserved for agriculture could well be planted with trees this way. Of course, some of these lands should be kept for agriculture just in case any accident happened to the factory. Without the limitation of this 1.8 billion acre of land, house prices should drop by then.
- All in all, the launch of nuclear fusion technology would transform how humans live in a better way. And to the business people present, this opportunity would mean much greater profits to the business people present than what they could earn from Omni-Engine and smart robots this year.
