On a 50 Quadrillion $ Opportunity.
The short story is:
- Thorium is many thousands of times more plentiful than uraniumm
- Thorium/Molten Salt reactors are 100% safe from meltdown
- They don't generate any CO2 (for you global warming nuts)
- Get This! They eat the solid waste from other conventional reactors
What's not to like. Well, apparently, since there isn't a friggin thing not to like about these things, government absolutely hates them. (Someone is building a reactor somewhere currently)
If you didn't notice in this somewhat technical article, several countries including the USA had at least one of these running circa 1960. The reason they didn't go with them is they don't produce weapons grade nuclear material. And of course they're 100% safe and much more economical.
PS - the next time you see some PETA or other category of idiot post an article about how cats kill many numbers of birds, remind them that Solar Farms kill many times more birds. Laugh at the blank stare coming back at you.
