The nuclear race is on. China is upping the ante dramatically on thorium nuclear energy. Scientists in Shanghai have been told to accelerate plans (sorry for the pun) to build the first fully-functioning thorium reactor within ten years, instead of 25 years as originally planned. “This is definitely a race.

Energy is a necessity for civilization as we know it. Today, however, population growth and advances in consumption among previously poor nations and classes leaves us with some hard choices. We are faced with the prospect of disastrous energy shortage on one hand, or unacceptably dangerous levels of pollution, habitat loss and climate change on …

Thor by Marten Eskil Winge. Thor is a mythical Norse god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, healing, and fertility. Thorium was so named in the 1820s, well before its nuclear properties were discovered in 1942. Coincidence?

THORIUM can end our dependence on fossil fuels, WITHOUT requiring redundant power lines to intermittent low density energy farms.
