Not to 'burn' it you twit.
Go learn some science for Christ's sake. Or read Wikipedia.

I took you're advice and found this
"The amount of fuel needed for large-scale applications can also be
put in terms of total consumption: According to the US Energy
Information Administration, "Electricity consumption by 107 million
U.S. households in 2001 totaled 1,140 billion kWh" (1.114x1015 Wh).
Again assuming 100% conversion efficiency, 6.7 tonnes of helium-3
would be required just for that segment of one country's energy
demand, 15 to 20 tonnes given a more realistic end-to-end conversion
"It's funny how, even the advice of an idiot can be used against him."

You haven't the tiniest clue what you're talking about.
