Limitless fusion energy available in a few short years

Limitless energy may be possible in just over a decade.
Using the same reaction that our sun uses, scientists could have a prototype in place to pave the way for a revolution in energy production.
British physicist, David Kingham says at the International Energy Agency in Paris that the building work could start in 10 years.
The Tokamak model is smaller than other reactors.
The Tokamak reactor is doughnut-shaped and has powerful magnets which hold in place plasma which is heated using microwaves.
Fusion then takes place at a certain temperature and the energy produced can be harnessed.
South Korea has maintained the plasma in a steady state for 70 seconds.
The Tore Supra tokamak in France has maintained fusion reactions for 5 minutes.

When they first made electricity from nuclear energy they said that our electric bills would be so small it wouldn't be worth collecting them!
We all know what happened.

I hope this doesn't end up like the mess we have with nuclear power.

I don't trust it, getting energy like this means trouble in my opinion.

What about waste materials?
Does it produce any or will fusion energy be clean unlike nuclear energy or is it the same.
I am confused.
