Getting from Point A to Point B ..Quickly!!!!!!

Getting from Point A to Point B .....Quickly!!!!! If your only focus for 2050 is man-made global warming, maybe you should consider expanding your horizons? Commentary by Jon Morrow Edited by Michael Goldstein I preface this article with my personal belief that although man does have the ability to affect the earth’s climate, I do not believe we are doing so to any significant extent right now. I can, however, entertain a man-made global warming hypothesis conceived in accordance with certain rules, that suggests that I may be wrong. In ...

Could Thorium Energy Prevent China’s Aluminum Dominance?

Aluminum Although there is a very high worldwide demand for aluminum, as will be seen below, the American aluminum industry is hamstrung in its goal of meeting this demand by a series of outsized costs, including the cost of building a new plant; regulatory costs; and energy costs.  Plant costs and regulatory costs must be addressed by the industry and by their federal, state, and local governments. A steep reduction in energy costs, which constitute a very large portion of the cost of producing aluminum presently, can and will be addressed by the production and ...

Man-Made Climate Change: On Purpose????

  Commentary by Jon Morrow I have recently been working with a fairly famous science fiction writer, and have been pressing him to include thorium based MSRs (Molten Salt Reactors) in his next movie or television production. Hopefully this would raise the profile of thorium based and help gain interest in the technology. Like many futurist and good scifi writers, he was able to dream up a tantalizing vision of the future, which was not immediately obvious to me. He is very active in the seasteading world. See video below.     When those in ...

Act Now and Have Your say on the Future of America!

  Time is running out and we hope you take the opportunity to comment on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Strategic Plan. The deadline is by tomorrow Friday April 4th. If you have not commented here is a video that explains how......it takes just a few seconds..... We believe one of the things to be lacking in the mission of the NRC is the lack of competition. It is true that security is mentioned in their mission but we believe that is most often interpreted as meaning military applications, such as powering nuclear submarines and aircraft carrie...

Ford Vs. Cadillac and Thorium N’est-ce Pas?

Ford Vs. Cadillac and Thorium N'est-ce Pas? Commentary by Jon Morrow One of my extracurricular activities other than working for the EFTF (Energy From Thorium Foundation) is helping to run a pretty large focus group that helps politicians and corporations make better marketing decisions. What I like about this is that I can learn a lot about the perceptions and thinking of the public on a whole range of issues. Our focus group was hired to determine the public acceptance of two different automotive commercials.   Ford   Versus   &nbs...

2050: Fearing Fear Itself

    Commentary by Jon Morrow 2050: Fearing Fear Itself   In the thorium advocacy community, we have all heard the stories as to why “they” will never let thorium-based molten salt reactors (like a LFTR Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) be built. Many of us can never identify just who “they” are when these stories are relayed to us. So many have heard the plight of developing a thorium based MSRs (Molten Salt Reactors) and they just assume some nefarious corporation with its own evil profit motive is preventing the development of ...

Three Years Ago at Google

43 years ago today, man first walked on the Moon. Three years ago today, I went to Google for the first time and gave a talk there. It was a formative event in more than one way. I met Chris Uhlik, who now serves on the Board of Advisors for Flibe Energy. Chris was one of the people, who, in years to come, was a powerful influence on my thinking and was part of the reason we started Flibe Energy. I met Iain McClatchie in person, and Iain has been another voice of advice and guidance as we have attempted to move the development of LFTR forward. And I got to meet "Googl...

Another Interview with Jim Puplava's "Financial Sense"

I was very happy to be invited to be a part of Jim Puplava's "Financial Sense Newshour" again. Jim and I had a great conversation last year and this represented a follow-up on recent developments. I hope you enjoy the interview, which you can download in a variety of different audio files or read the transcript (but I think the audio versions are better). Jim Puplava's Financial Sense: "Kirk Sorensen on Thorium--The Magic Elixir That Could Solve Our Energy Needs and Global Warming"

Great Videos from Alex Pasternack!

I really enjoyed watching Alex Pasternack's new short video on Dr. Edward Teller: Motherboard TV: Doctor Teller's Strange Loves, from the Hydrogen Bomb to Thorium Energy Ralph Moir had told me this story about Teller before, but watching it presented this way with the video interviews of Teller and short descriptions of projects that we worked on, was much richer. Teller was indeed a very unique kind of person, whose early experiences with Communism in Hungary shocked his mind into responses that others struggled to understand. I hesitate to cast any judgements since I ...
