There is no energy crisis, just a visson crisis. LFTR, what fusion promised delivered.

The other nuclear energy, the one that doesn't melt down or make weapons or leave intractable waste.

    • @Kevril same like medicine. there's a very cheap substance that can cure cancer and it's been tested on mammals with high rate of success. but until now, no big company interested on continue the research.

      it's all about business. they don't give a fuck about this planet and everyone who stepped on it.

  • The energy crisis is only a crisis to the oil and gas industry, they've led you to believe it's our main source of energy.

  • yeah yeah yeah your plan is real good and all but earth runs on artificial conflict kept alive by politicians for the sake of money, greed, and POWER, and a good idea is not enough to change the hierarchy of greed.

      Good post.

      Isn't his message still just a THEORY, and not yet proven?

      I keep thinking this bandwagon is going down in flames as that whole "Cold Fusion" hype in the 80s

    • @adanvjr no it works. the problem is more of a materials science challenge. the key to viable long term operation of salt reactors is finding a corrosion resistant material to build containment vessel out of.

    • @Jman5048 it is a metaphor, thorium achieves similar goals to fusion. One of those goals is a nuclear weapon proliferation free energy which no gen 3 uranium reactor can offer although gen 3 reactors do offer greatly improved melt down free safety.

  • One of the reasons why thorium is not used today or even back in the 50's and 60's is that it can not be used to make nuclear weapons.

    Unlike uranium which can be enriched to make weapons.

    Its the same as the EV1, ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_Killed_the_Electric_Car%3F )
    Why was this killed off?
    Because of piss poor marketing and no interest from the public.

  • I'm sure if this is true it will be the emerging economies like China and India that will take the lead leaving the rest of the west far behind.

    • @viol999 European countries are already gearing up for sustainable energy. Germany just lately called off nuclear energy and are switching to many renewable resources. I have no doubt that Europe will be able to keep up to standards.

    • @47 You are wrong on this the Germans will now use coal to fill the gap left by neuclear power. It not about saving the planet it is all about money and at the oil industry holds sway. You have to wonder how many other alternative energies have been buried by them.

    • @47 That's a crock. Germany doesn't have access to enough so-called renewable resources and without paying dearly for them. When coal plants offer the only real solution to nuclear power, something is wrong. Stick with nuclear. Consider this: how many people died in the recent meltdown in Japan? The answer is zero. Chernobyl also has an extremely low, but still unfortunate, death toll due to nuclear radiation. It's simply common sense to go nuclear and provides cheap, abundant energy for everyon More..

  • Despite the overwhelming benefits of thorium reactors upon humanity, you can all blame Nixon for its failure. According to Nixon, maintaining the arms race and having access to weapons grade nuclear fuel was more important than being energy independent.
    Whats interesting though is if you combine thorium reactors with Nikola Tesla's theory of wireless energy, we could have been living like the Jetsons by now.

  • Listen I can see this being the energy of the future but come on now, it's 2013 we should have realised that the only reason this sort of thing is not being installed in my local area, is because it would cripple many industries and put tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of people out of jobs. Don't forget those big shots that really run countries which wouldn't get their gargantuan bonuses every year. As a planet we are all fucked until we get rid of the dodgy fuckers and get some proper leaders More..
