The OP is probably referrng to some recently hyped advances in tokamak reactors.

They are not much less polluting than fission plants. The reactor linings are made radioactive by neutron flux and become a massive disposal problem, comparable to a breeder reactor.

Meanwhile Scotland generates double its electrity needs from renewable sources. Almost every nation on earth can do the same.
