Next comes getting the Atomic Energy Commission to issue licenses for Molten Salt Reactors before we are all buying them from China.
I have a question for the Senators from Alaska: Why isn’t UURAF producing the rare earths that have been found in abundance in southern Alaska and have known to have been there for a decade?
Every U235 Reactor is nothing more than a P239 manufacturing plant, not an energy production facility.
Steam turning a wheel is just a byproduct.
Fusion by laser implosion was my preference over the Tokamak approach.
Interesting to learn that we can supply US demand for rare earths by capturing thorium and by products from US phosphate fertilizer production.
Proposes a thorium bank to sever risk with the eventual goal of powering thorium molten salt reactors.
DOE under Trump is also granting money for research on MSRs and next-gen reactors.
Trump may believe that catastrophic global warming is bs but its not stopping him from investing in our energy future.
