The promise of nuclear fusion power has soaked up hundreds of billions of dollars over the past half century without producing a single watt of electric power.

To paraphrase Winston Churchill
"Never have so many spent so much for so little."

I wouldn't give them another cent until AFTER the protagonists come up with a machine that actually generates net electricity. How to finance this prototype? That is their problem. We have given them hundreds of billions of dollars and it is time to cut it loose. If someone can actually do it, heavy industry will fund it with their own money. The governments of the Earth should not pour any more money down this black hole.
