Thanks once again for an excellent presentation. Just a sub note on one of Kirk's comments about pellet shielding, and the difficulties with the zirconium (hydrogen liberation etc.) I see that IAALF have reportedly had a research breakthrough with Beryllium Oxide coating which should greatly improve performance in light water reactors, due to heat transfer characteristics, and better safety. Perhaps this edges us towards the better world of liquid flibe reactors LFBITR's as the industry becomes a little safer and is seen in a better light.
I will try to watch the videos more closely.. but i am very concerned that nobody seems to be pointing out that china (or india?) is going to beat the world at clean safe electricty by jumping over the west and going directly to thorium based power generation.
Only the threat of Thorium Powered Golden Dragon will cause the west to wakeup to the only economic and safe energy solution.
I visited the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History recently and was wondering why there was no reference to thorium as an energy source and molten salt as a delivery system. I donated a few bucks to the Thorium Energy Allience Thorium Text Book and Museum Display Project. Maybe we can get that fifth panel completed with Thorium Energy – The Real Beginning of the Nuclear Age.
'The Men Who made America' is a great series on History Channel. Competition between those men made things happen to start the Industrial Age. In today's global world, that competition is going to come from other countries. There is nothing wrong with China leading the way to get our act together. The most important thing is that we do react and move the world into the Nuclear Age. We didn't get it done last time.
