In 2004, Thorium plasma batteries made their debut as compact portable devices that could provide reliable power for 3-7 years, non-stop, without a recharge. Three inventors came up with 3 different but similar designs and all three worked flawlessly – providing a green alternate energy source with no adverse safety or environmental concerns.
Since these stand-alone batteries can be manufactured in various sizes consider the following applications:
* Laptop and other PCs
* Electric bicycles & scooters
* Ships & Barges
But think BIG and one of these plasma batteries the size of a shoebox could power a complete 5 bedroom house and every appliance in it. Or one the size of Hummer could power a complete 300 unit condominium complex without any external power grid connection. But think even bigger still… A battery the size of that same 5 bedroom house could power the City of Dayton – by plugging it into the local power grid. And there would be zero emissions. Thorium plasma power can eliminate every coal plant in the world in less than 5 years. But it gets better still…
If we were to drive electric cars and trucks powered by plasma battery technology, we could reduce global warming by 30% within five years and perhaps 50% within a decade. But what is good for mankind and our grandchildren poses a huge threat of financial loss to others – primarily big oil and politicians. Here is why…
While two-faced politicians talk about greening the world every four years just before they face elections, they are being wined and dined by big oil (Remember the Cheney-Enron affair?) to complicitly keep us addicted to oil. Why?
Because roughly 43% of all revenues paid for gasoline and other fuels are collected by the government in taxes, and these taxes provide more than a third of the nation’s operating budget. Adopting green Thorium plasma battery technology would reduce national oil consumption by more than 85% and how would our pols get by with 33% less tax revenues. Once gotten, graft is no sot easy to surrender as one Senator told me last year – “It would be easier to quit smoking after 10 years of chain smoking!”

From your list of inventors that were "murdered because they made thorium batteries"..
The first name was Stanley Meyer, who had a hydrolysis scam going, nothing to do with thorium.
On your first link to thorium in cars, it was sourced to wardsauto.com, where they are getting their information from Charles Stevens who used to run a little genome scheme before he started his thorium scheme.
I stopped reading after that.
Jim Hedrick, a specialist on industrial minerals – and until last year the U.S. Geological Survey’s senior advisor on rare earths – tells Ward’s the idea is “both plausible and sensible.”
Stevens says his company should be able to place a prototype on the road within two years. The firm has 40 employees and operates out of an in-house research workshop.

Thorium is highly toxic and radioactive, and has a half-life of 14-billion years. (Health and Safety Aspects of Thorium Production)
Maybe as he claims he can make it safe and viable, but um, I'd just as soon as not have 300 million radioactive cars on the road to deal with, let alone what happens to them when they're scrapped and sitting in a boneyard somewhere or pulverized in a collision with a semi.
But thanks for the post, technology will have to find a solution to fossil fuels some day.
Thanks for the links to his sites, but where does it say these are fraudulent schemes?
Do you know of articles that expose these companies as some kind of fraud?

This sounds like a great technology, very cutting edge. Now how long before this is swept under the rug..
