But the big question is, probably already been asked here, how MUCH thorium is on the planet? Is there enough for EVERY person in the USA let alone on the planet.
As for the mining, the reserves are there, with 440,000 tons alone in the U.S., we just need the mining facilities to extract it in large enough quantities. With the potential benefits that is sure to happen.
lets see. there is 307,006,550 people in the US
there are 1,000,000 Grams in a ton
So.. 440,000 tons times A million.. Equals
440,000,000,000 grams of Thorium in the US.
Accroding to the Article 8 Grams will Outlast the lifespan of the cars themselves
So that means that theres is going to be 8 grams for
440,000,000,000 divided by 8 is..
there is enough grams to power for a lifetime or more to power 55,000,000,000 thorium powered Vehicles
Its way more than enough Thorium for the US Population.
