Greens against fusion power?

I’ve been supporting the green party for a while. They’re not perfect for me but better than others, and the other people involved are the kind of people I often hang out with.

Recent news make me seriously worry about the greens though. Their MEP Satu Hassi has proposed that EU stop funding the Iter fusion reactor research. Fusion is a real possibility of practically unlimited power with least environmental damage of any power source, so I find that really hard to follow.

If the green party keeps this view I’m sure they will lose many educated supporters, including me.
