what's the point of Fusion Energy if we can't benefit from it?

We do benefit from fusion energy, that is what powers the Sun, which in turn powers life on Earth and keeps us from being a frozen block of ice.

What is the point of the Earth, or Mars or other galaxies if WE can't benefit from it? What about the energy from the sun? Pointless fusion? We are NOT the pinnacle of existence. When humans have destroyed themselves the universe will continue to work. Fusion EXISTS whether or not we can harness it.

We do benefit from fusion energy. The sun is very important. But let's go further into this.
Can we humans figure out a way to harvest the power of fusion energy?
The answer to that question is YES.
Scientists around the globe are researching ways to use fusion energy to power the world.
The amount of power that we could get from this would be ENORMOUS. We wouldn't have to worry about energy for the REST OF HUMANITY'S EXISTENCE if we could figure out a way to harness it.
But as of right now, scientists are still researching how to do that safely. Fusion energy requires, well, energy. A lot of energy. That means a LOT of heat.
The sun kinda gives off a lot of heat.

Fusion existed before humans and will after humans. What good are humans to fusion?

We benefit from the sun. If we could do it on earth, we would have enough fuel for a tremendous amount of time, as Hydrogen is abundant in the form of water.

If we can learn to control nuclear fusion then it will be a huge benefit because we would have clean power with no pollution.

Being currently too dumb to know how to benefit doesn't mean 'we' never will.
I suspect it will come in handy for more than just threatening to blow up the world once the infrastructure challenges for channeling it into electrical energy are overcome and the environmental threats are addressed. It might be fun to find a way to generate it in space, (where it would be safe to generate), then find a way to bring the energy back here. So basically, a space-based fusion reactor generating electricity that could be conducted back to earth. It would be awesome if it arrived like controlled lightning, then got stored or channeled and used as part of the grid system.
Having an actual power source in space other than solar batteries would be really useful too.

No fusion, no Sun. We wouldn't exist.

If nuclear is real, we do.
