Japan (and America's) Nuclear Future in Thorium?
The blog post about how nuclear energy IS Japan's answer to her energy problems, in spite of Fukushima, has been read by nearly a thousand people in just a few days. Please refer to: Godzilla is Coming Out From Fukushima! More on Mass Media Sensationalism. Usually posts that get that sort of reaction have photos of hot sexy Japanese girls (you won't be seeing those anymore on this site - more on that in a later post).
Here's nuclear engineer Kirk Sorensen (currently pursuing a master's degree in nuclear engineering at the University of Tennessee) again at Technology, Entertainment and Design Conference (TED) explaining why Thorium based nuclear power is the answer to the world's future energy needs.
This is only ten minutes long but if chocked full of great information. Enjoy!
