So, Why Are We Not Doing This ?


All you crazy carbon people.... Demand we start building hundreds of these.  I'd do it to reduce pollution as I don't believe in the climate scam, but why not make two people happy at the same time.

  1. This technology has been around for awhile. Obviously the invested power interests cannot make enough money to suit themselves from it.

  2. Nah, those carbon crazies are not interested in clean power. Of course they say they are, but they aren't. They are interested in advancing a liberal agenda, and clean power is just the vehicle in obtaining their goals du jour. Clean power, schmean power. They just want political power, pure and simple. When they ride this clean energy thing into the ground, tomorrow it will be something else.

    1. Well, that's about right Fredd. They simply make no sense at all.

  3. Thorium is named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder. You probably need a special hammer to mine this ore.

    1. Well, Thorium is actually much more abundant and easier to get than Uranium.

      Up til now it has probably been because these reactors don't put out weapons grade material. Seems like we can split the two functions by now.

  5. That fat-faced, flat-voiced, fast-talking Geek-Nerd-Jerk may –– or may not –– know what he's talking about [I admit I can't tell!], but he couldn't persuade a drowning man to grab hold, if he offered him a lifeline, or one dying of thirst to take a glass of water from his officious, pudgy hands.

    1. FT, The guy in the vid? Oh, he definitely knows what he's talking about. I've done the research.

    2. I don't doubt that, Kid. My point, however, is that he's exactly the wrong sort of person to "sell" it to the public at large. You may like him, because you have a special interest in his subject, but most of us need to be informed by someone with charm, grace, style and that elusive, hard-to-define thing called "charisma."

      Shallow? You bet! But "charisma" is the thing that "sells soap." Sorry, but your man in the vid ain't got it.

    3. FT, Ok, My view is that it's a good 5 minute primer on the subject. I don't believe 'we' need to be sold on anything. If the government wants to do something - obamacare, whatever - it sure doesn't matter what we think. If they ask us it is not to find out if we want it.

  6. "All this struggling and striving to make the world better is a great mistake; not because it isn't a good thing to improve the world, if you know how to do it, but because striving and struggling is the worst way you could set about doing anything."

    ~ G. B. Shaw (1856-1950)

    1. FT, I can't say I agree with sitting around and waiting in today's environment.

    2. Maybe –– maybe not. For instance. I lost my Flash Player a few weeks ago, and could not get it back. I was po'd, but instead of calling the Tech Geek to reinstall it at great expense, I just said F-it! and let it go.

      Guess what? I came back all on its own two days ago without my having to do a thing.

      Dr. Lewis Thomas, the great, award-winning essayist, poet and former director of Sloan Kettering Institute for Cancer Research in New York, said in the introduction to one of his best-sellng books, "The best kept secret in medicine is that most things get better by themselves."

    3. FT, Yes, I've had minor-ish aches and pains, some that suggested that something was orthepedicaly wrong. I ignore them and they go away.

      On your flash player. If you use the Chrome browser, which is the safest browser to use, it installs and uses the latest flash player every time you start it up. IE being the worst browser for security. Firefox isn't bad but does not automatically imbed the flash player.
