Another welcome book about Thorium and more by Robert Hargraves

Review by Rick Maltese of the book by Robert Hargraves titled


If any of us were picked to join a team to decide on an energy policy what would you do? I’d want a book that was easy to follow, clearly referenced with facts expanded on about the leading energy solutions.

Robert Hargraves does just that. His book takes you through some fundamentals and then shows you the facts in summary fashion. Exactly what we would need to be up to speed when joining discussions about the pros and cons of various competing forms of energy. But more than that. It is like the textbook that you first go to when you want to get to the bottom of something nuclear or other energy related topic.

Choosing to study molten salt nuclear reactors is a rewarding path of study

  • Quick Facts: [Thorium Element 90 in periodic table] [Burns up fuel much more efficiently than traditional reactors] [leaves barely any waste behind] [3 x more abundant than uranium] [MSRs run at high temp in liquid molten mixture of fluoride - heat useful for purifying water] [looks like blue water] [no pressure needed] [much safer because of passive safety] [Less expensive to build because it is smaller and easier to build with no pressurized containment needed] [can run without water therefore good for dry and remote locations][molten salt is very stable]
