    Why the fuck aren’t we using Liquid fluoride thorium reactors yet?

    • Thorium is 3 times as abundant as uranium, usually discarded as waste from rare-earth mining
    • LFTRs resist diversion of its nuclear fuel to nuclear weapons
    • The reactor is not at great pressures so it cannot explode and is easy to control at all times
    • LFTRs consume 99% of their fuel, typical nuclear reactors consume LESS THAN 1% (thats less than 1% efficient)!
    • LFTR’s are cleaner, fission wastes that are radioactive for 300 years (compared to 10,000+ years for typical reactors)
    • No expensive fuel enrichment needed!
    • 1 tonne natural Thorium = 35 tonnes enriched Uranium = 4,166,000 tonnes black coal
    • LFTRs can burn high level waste from typical reactors
    • LFTRs are much cheaper than a typical reactor due to simpler construction and safer reactors
    • Fission wastes from LFTRs include rare-earth metals used in electronics and medical isotopes

    This is it folks, This is what is going to take us into the future. Watch this:

    This guy makes a lot of sense. The system is fucked. We need to change it, but trillions of dollars prevent this. Therefore the world is very likely headed for collapse. This is why I’m not having kids…

    This engine is awesome, runs on hydrogen, swappable ceramic cylinders, doesn’t need every cylinder on it to run. And looks so simple! I want one, I wonder if the oil companies have bought the patent to this yet…
