RE: PROCESSING THE DATA

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

It's very difficult to separate fact from crap emotional theories. It's nearly impossible to say that, for instance, uranium deposits will run out in 300 years, because an estimate like that is based upon current technology. Also, uranium isn't the only fuel that would allow for fission. Thorium is an excellent alternative.

One reason Thorium doesn't dominate the nuclear industry is simple business strategy and capitalism. During WWII the United States spent a vast fortune on the development of technologies to process uranium into weapon-capable platform. Following WWII, while technologies were shifting to power production the Thorium concept came into fruition.

However, because an infrastructure for Uranium already existed, thorium was already pushed off to the side. The industry hasn't had the opportunity to conduct large-scale testing of thorium reactors since then, but also because of fears caused by Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and now Fukushima.

Thorium is cleaner and easier to manage in terms of energy and waste. The fuel supply is also much greater. Let's hope the nuclear industry can get with the program.

Say, I've always been curious about your contact and support section. Does that stuff work?

Very interesting. As i mentioned, i do not have the interest in pursuing this curiosity about energy deeply, and i can say the same for many people who just take what they see online at its face value. Even now i am willing to take what you have told me as fact, without even cross-checking because we have an existing relationship. Is this the right way to go? I don't know. At the end of the day, we are social beings and rely on our existing relationships to navigate the world and we are incapable of knowing everything, so trust plays an important role in how we shape our reality.

Yeah, those are my social handles and personal wallet addresses.

Thanks for the info. It's hard to trust, certainly. IN the case of power production, I've been working in it for decades now. It would be easier for me to sift through the data than others. I can't say that for information about other topics though. I'll have the same problems as anyone else.
