Energy- Uranium versus Thorium

Anyone ever heard of Thorium as an alternative to Uranium? Given the terrible catastrophe in Japan the weekend before last, if this technology is viable, why have we allowed it to be suppressed??? If anyone has a Nuclear science background, you might like to have a look at this link and see if there is anything at all to it.

Is it real and suppressed or just a pipe dream?

Hi Phil, I've not a nuclear

Hi Phil,

I've not a nuclear science background, but I read on an Italian newspaper that the real new generation of nuclear plants involves Thorium insead of Uranium.

Moreover, this article said that China and India are the only nations that are moving in this direction.

Maybe would this mean something..?
