ITER tokamak

France was chosen to host the world's first nuclear-fusion reactor. ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is the joint project between six countries (Russia, Japan, EU, S Korea, China and USA). Tokamak will be built at Cadarache, France. It would be good news if you are interested in magnetic fusion energy though not for greenpeace. But fusion reactor is not as harmful as fission reactors and I can say it is quite green.
