But the book inspired him to pursue an intense study of nuclear energy over the next few years, during which he became convinced that thorium could solve the nuclear power industry’s most intractable problems. After it has been used as fuel for power plants, the element leaves behind minuscule amounts of waste. And that waste needs to be stored for only a few hundred years, not a few hundred thousand like other nuclear byproducts. Because it’s so plentiful in nature, it’s virtually inexhaustible

With the ever increasing cost of energy sooner or later I think most nations may end up going back to nuke plants.

I have been following Thorium for awhile now, I have been trying to push it as a negotiating tool in my circles, the way I see it is we can push it to Iran and N.K. as an alternative to Uranium, if they refuse we can assume they want the nuclear weapon capability, why else deny help to obtain the Nuclear energy you are helping with out the controversy.
