It is deeply frustrating and embarrassing to me that there's a very real chance we'll see the singularity and fusion before the United States wakes up to MSR and fission.

Happy new year everyone. I think it's gonna be a good one for nuclear power and that's great for everybody, especially all the kids.

Thorium Energy

In the News  - 
 
Dr. A. Weinberg once asked 'Can a frugal, energy-starved world flourish without social strife, largely resulting from scarcity and want?'
Today we are still asking 'how can we provide everyone on earth with affordable energy without contributing to climate change and pollution?
This video shows how that was envisioned and built already in 1969 with thorium in a molten salt reactor.

Nuclear energy without risk or waste: possible with thorium? Though long sabotaged by energy lobbyists and the defence industry, is thorium a real alternative to plutonium for the nuclear industry? | Documentaries, live recordings, reports, and magazine shows, all available free online in English from ARTE, the European culture channel.

Again, we see eye to eye.

But it's not simple greed as the motive, for the banks anyway, since banks could get equally rich off the construction of nuclear reactors. The point is to inspire debt, regardless of how.

It's the current energy lobby that's the real problem and frankly our failure to play by the rules of the game as it now is.

Nuclear advocacy spends WAY too much time lamenting lack of education in their target audience, stubbornly refusing to face the reality of that audience.

"Now thorium become part of the (Denmark) government program" some may need to click "translate" :) http://www.arbejderen.dk/indland/trekl%C3%B8ver-regering-vil-forske-i-atomkraft
 ·  Translate
Privat atomkraft- og lobbyfirma har i halvandet år lobbyet for at åbne Danmark for det radioaktive materiale thorium, der kan bruges til atomkraft. Nu er thorium blevet en del af regeringsgrundlaget.

Documentary coming in 2017 "What if the solution to climate change were hiding in plain sight?
There’s been huge growth in renewable energy and energy efficiency in recent years, but most of America’s clean energy still comes from nuclear." newfiremovie.com

"This film was produced in 1969 by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the United States Atomic Energy Commission to inform the public regarding the history, technology, and milestones of the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE). Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Molten Salt Reactor Experiment was designed to assess the viability of liquid fuel reactor technologies for use in commercial power generation. It operated from January 1965 through December 1969, logging more than 13,000 hours at full power during its four-year run. The MSRE was designated a nuclear historic landmark in 1994." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyDbq5HRs0o
