I have done a focus group on this.

I asked myself what I would like.

The unanimous choice was Bussard Fusion Reactor.

Regretfully, we will have to reject the findings of your focus group as a statistical outlier.

Perhaps if you could give it a green name spin and avoid the use of the word reactor.

In American slang that is some one who misses the mark.

Green.

Or perhaps Solar Voltaic would be better. Oops that is currently under a cloud.

Here are a few ultimate green names.

Fire. Or even better: Cold. Freezer might work.

Native American has a nice ring. Aboriginal could work. Or the ultimate green name:

Death To Most Humans.

You really must try harder than just 'green', what is this an episode of Blackadder! :-)

More something like:

Bussards Sun Ball

A name can be important, especially to people without much of an education, so you might even want to trawl ancient terms, better for something green and pleasent sounding than:

Radioactive ball of death.

I like BFR
Yes, it will be called a "Beefer" but that is good. We need to Beef up the grid with BFRs.

And Captain Kirk could order, "Scotty, beef up the shields."

And Scotty could reply, "Much more bluddy beef and she'll poison the core cappin.

Oops, that's English, isn't it.

Anthropogenic Global Warmer could work. We should hold that one back until we are sure we are in an ice age.

Until we know it, and people have gotten over the current hysteria enough to believe it.
