Not directly related to thorium, but critically important, IMO, to have a complete understanding of the limitations of weather-dependent, or variable, renewable energy, well articulated and explained!

James Kennedy explains the necessity of "Thorium banks" which accepts and stores the Thorium.
China controls substances so valuable that the Pentagon dares not act. It’s up to the Senate now.

More money on defence? Let me laught, the US army is so incompetent, that any amount of money is going to be wasted anyways into unwinable wars, and corrupt their unethical leadership.
Since a good third of the +$600 billion US army budget go directly into the Middle East to protect tyranical oil producing dictatorship, why not divert that amount of money to develop something useful, namely Thorium nuclear reactors, shortcutting those tyrans, who despise the Western world anyways. The technology exist in the US, the energy sector badly need it, only the political will is missing.
But I`m just dreaming, the US political elite is way too corrupt, lack intelligence, and especially lack the leadership to challange the world order dominated by big oil companies, and the MIC, not to mention the most important, the privately own FED and their dollar back by oil, the petro-dollar currency.
The Russian and Chinese must laught behind the doors to face such weak American opposition. The best thing they could do is to encourrage the US into uncontroled spriralling military budget.

Why not use a magnetic motor for the back up so there will be no need for any fossil fuels at all.

Based on application, the market is segmented into oncology, cardiology, neurology and other applications which includes orthopedics, urology, thyroid related disorders, and gastroenterology. In 2015, the cardiology segment is estimated to account for a major share of the nuclear medicine equipment market.
 
Nuclear Medicine Equipment Ecosystem Comprises of:
·         Raw Material Suppliers of nuclear medicine equipment
·         Vendors/Suppliers/Distributors of nuclear medicine equipment
·         End-users: Hospitals, imaging centers, academic & research institutes, among others.
·         Other Stakeholders: government organizations, consulting firms, venture capitalists, among others
 
On the basis of end user, the market is classified into hospitals, imaging centers, academic and research institutes and others which include pharma/biotech companies and CROs. In 2015, hospitals segment is estimated to account for a major share of the nuclear medicine equipment market.

Guys, I need pro nuclear power memes and infographics. Thorium stuff is great too but I need twitter debate ammo. We have got to focus on waking up the left. Their opposition to nuclear power science is identical to the right's evasion of climate science. And I need materials to demonstrate that.

I can't hardly find any.

Nice words from SNC Lavalin, but considering the ridiculous amount of money they put in R&D, I have no hope at all that this cooperation will endup in someting worth to mention.
Most likely the Chinese are sucking up CANDU technology in exchange for some loose change, and this the Chinese who will come up with some breakthru.

Missing bolts
Missing bolts and “nuclear reactor” are words one generally does not want in the same sentence. However, when more than one quarter of the bolts inside an atomic reactor core go missing, the risk and concern multiply. Listen to this breaking news Fairewinds Energy Education podcast of a formal press conference hosted by Friends of the Earth regarding its Emergency Petition to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to Prohibit Restart of Indian Point Unit 2 and Inspect Indian Point Unit 3.

Here is a link to one of my favorite nuclear safety expert Arnie Gundersen from Fairwinds and his latest podcast (30 min)
