Using Thorium for Energy
Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors LFTRs were invented 50 years ago by an American named Alvin Weinberg.
LFTRs are revolutionary liquid reactors that run not on uranium, but thorium. These work and have been built before.
The main reason this technology is not in widespread use today is our irrational fear of nuclear energy, despite the fact that more people have died from fossil fuels and even hydroelectric power than nuclear power.
That plus the multinational companies and governments invested in fossil fuel use such as oil, coal and gas.
How much Thorium for Energy do we Have?
Latest research says we have at least 2.6 million tonnes of it on earth, distributed over all the continents.
For every kilogram of thorium, LFTRs can produce 3.5 million Kwh of energy.
This is 70 times greater than uranium and 10,000 times greater than oil.
