Power Reactors, Are they part of the conversation yet?
I can’t tell you how excited I am to tell you about this revolutionary technology!
All over the world, people are talking about cold fusion being the answer to everything.Still others talk about how getting natural gas out of the ground is the only solution foreign energy consumption. Then there are the voices that say solar and wind will fill all our energy needs.
These opinions are not the only answers! In fact, I am willing to bet that after reading this site carefully I can convince you that there is another workable alternative.
That alternative energy source is Thorium power reactors. Thorium is an abundant earth element that is simply thrown away when we dig up the earth for mining other elements. It is four times more abundant than Uranium and one, yes ONE mountain pass (Lemhi Pass ), along the Idaho-Montana border has enough Thorium to fill all of the United States energy consumption needs for the next 1000 years!
To give you an idea of how much power is in the Thorium element, I like to tell people about the design of a concept car by Cadillac that was meant to run on Thorium. They estimated that eight grams (About the amount contained in a bracelet) are enough to power each Cadillac for 100,000 miles! Think of that a million cars running on Thorium Power Reactors! Talk about saving on gas bills!
Said another way, one gm of thorium equals the energy of 7,500 gallons (28,391 L) of gasoline.
One of the many great things about Thorium is that it uses almost all of its radioactive particles during its fission, leaving less than .1 % to remain as waste. For powering the car that is .008 grams of waste.
There are obvious limitations to using Thorium power reactors to powering a car, however, the visual concept makes it obvious how powerful Thorium power reactors are and leaves most people astounded.
Thorium power reactors were turned away from as an energy solution in the 1940’s during the Manhattan project because it could not be used to both produce energy and economically make bombs.
Take some time to look through our menus and look over the Thorium power reactors pages and any other pages you find interesting!
