Advocates Charles Barton education Kirk Sorensen LFTR nuclear nuclear plants reprocessing thorium

Hey Utah, China knows Weinberg was right about TMSR's. No Water Needed!

Utah needs water for nuclear power but water is scarce. (see Article in the Salt Lake tribune) The only alternative besides a LFTR is Natural Gas. What’s that? A “LiFTer”? Huh? A LFTR is a Molten Salt Reactor that is a Fourth Generation Reactor yet it’s origins are predecessors of our current reactors. Why does…

Thorium MSR in China

Kirk Sorensen’s EFT page: Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (TMSR) is now being developed in China and here is Charles Barton’s Post China starts LFTR Development Project I’m sure Kirk Sorensen and Charles Barton had mixed emotions when they learned that China was building a TMSR. Details of the design are not available. For newcomers, this…

Robert Hargraves at Blue Ribbon Commission Aug 30 2010

“For an overview of a two fluid liquid fluoride thorium molten salt reactor see my ten minute presentation before the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s nuclear future. Click on the Aug 30 date and scroll down to find this.” http://brc.gov Robert provided a much needed perspective and if you had not been there Rod Adams and…

Alvin Weinberg

Forgotten or unknown to the masses Alvin Weinberg designed the Light Water Reactor (the 104 Nuclear reactors across the US) and was one of the first to warn about Climate Change. So when things get worse there will be a push for new Nuclear Reactor designs and the reactor design that Weinberg and his team…

If you knew nuclear like I know nuclear.

Here’s another one I wrote Last Year For some people nuclear anything leads to nuclear danger. We are learning that some great benefits have been discovered from the knowledge of elements that are radioactive and the promises can’t be ignored. Is there any sense to equating nuclear energy research and development with nuclear bombs. What…

FUJI Thorium MSR Reactor back again

The Japanese have recently announced  (Jul 8th, 2010)  their intention to create a Thorium Molten Salt Reactor     http://www.itheo.org/articles/itheo-presents-ithems They need 300 million $US to get started. They have had interest in an MSR since the 1990’s This seems a small price to start an important first modern Thorium-MSR commercial reactor. It would save American…

July 4th Letter to Obama on Nuclear Energy Falls Short

NuclearGreen’s Charles Barton writing from his hospital bed The letter according to Charles Barton ignores the achievements of Wigner and Weinberg and focuses on their authors perceived better choice to winning over government dollars for projects supporting reactors for reprocessing.  The trouble is they leave out the best choice according to many and that is…

THORIUM: A Tipping Point in History

This blog form Environauts.com covers background about how Thorium is getting a second chance, how it almost got passed over as an energy source. Sometimes profit and fear reinforce each other even at the expense of what’s good for the planet. THORIUM: A Tipping Point in History From the same blog more details about Thorium…

Interdependent Reactors Are the Fastest Route to 2020 Energy Independence says Kirk Sorensen

Slightly Condensed version of Kirk Sorensen’s talk at the Thorium Energy Alliance Conference (After careful reading I found it difficult to shorten – The parallel interdependent reactors is the most interesting and the fact that meeting a 2020 date by doing so is very exciting given that Bill Gates has a much longer deadline with…

  • 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]
