I was wondering if you were aware of Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors?
We build and tested prototype LFTRs in the 60's and they ran find for several years.
We know the technology is viable.
The LFTR project was canned because it wasn't suited for generateing weapons grade material.
We have thousands and thousands of years worth of thorium fuel, in the usa we have 1-2 thousands years of known reserves.
