You can't say no thanks to this technology because thorium could be dangerous in a crash...
what did they say about petrol cars when they first came out? I think it was something along the lines of if you were to crash you would be incinerated in a blazing ball of fire.

I remember seeing this concept a while ago. It has huge potential. Some company was doing research with this. It is definitely a way to go. The production of a useful way to use this was dropped because one of the major oil companies bought it out and stomped it.

The oil companies don't give a sheet as someone mentioned. Their bottom line is to increase profits, plain and simple and this technology is not the way to go. They first mentioned using this in power plants because of the huge potential. It was shut down due to "other reasons". I can't remember where I saw this as I was discussing it with a friend before who has a great deal of knowledge in this.

I want to stick it to the oil companies as the next guy.........greedy a-holes. Hopefully this pulls through...

I am currently waiting for the synthetic gas to pull through and drop the price by more than half.

I'm just going to miss the sound of good 'ol gasoline vehicles if things like this replace them. But hey I'm a motorhead.

On the other hand I feel sorry for anybody in the gas/oil/car business because you will most likely be loosing your job.

One question what happens to long-haul truckers and other big transport people that depends on high torque and horsepower engines do they just say stick with diesel? ( I am pretty sure this was a stupid question...this thorium solution most likely is used for the 90% of people that just use a car or only need a car. )

**Edit**
Just like with solar and electric solutions I am sure that they will raise the cost of 8grams of thorium to be like a $100,000 or something like that so they can still have their profit.
Diesel comes from oil, sorry if I didnt read the entire thread, but if this thorium replaces gas it replaces diesel etc.

Hey as for thorium escaping containment from a auto accident, couldn't they develop a containment canister and pressurize it, then inject foam to fill the canister in case of an accident?

Come on, even I designed a milk carton that could withstand being thrown off of my schools roof and the egg survived intact.

PM me if you want to know how i did it.
