[Telegraph] Safe nuclear does exist, and China is leading the way with thorium - Page 5

post #41 of 43
China will become the center of the world (again) like they were pre-industrial revolution. They will be #1 in everything, just a matter of time. We just have to accept that trend.

Ignorant and stupid people will always exist, and for good reason, without them the rich would not get richer.

I don't understand why people are so paranoid about nuclear energy now that Japan had a little mishap.

People die when Nuclear energy goes wrong but people die when Coal Plants go right. Coal is so much deadlier and harmful to the environment.


Canadas Hydro powered plants is the way to go in my opinion, unfortunately it can't be done everywhere.
People freaked out when combustion engines took off, everyone thought we would see chaos and destruction on roads throughout the US because whenever there would be a car accident there would be a huge Hollywood type explosion.

China is also ranked 73th in corruption AND investing money earned from software piracy in business. Pretty smart, unlike the West

I wonder where they will bury their nuclear waste though...even if people there are bored to protest...
Who makes these rankings? I'm sure in China they believe the US is the most corrupt. It really depends who's BS you're eating.
Shhhhh!

Oh my god, finally! Liquid fluoride thorium reactors!

I learned about them from several Google Tech Talk videos and they seemed like such an obvious choice over uranium reactors. I was baffled as to why no one was building LFTRs. Kirk Sorensen mentioned in the article presents the Tech Talk in the first video.

One of the oldest bureaucracies has also the oldest corruption. Not a bad thing to bribe officials if there is no other way. A lot of businesses thrived this way, both american and chinese.

One has to keep a balance between environment protection and development and in both countries kyoto agreement did not get through anyway.
