Documentary Of The Week: The Thorium Nuclear Reactor

Written by John Lounsbury

Econintersect: The future of nuclear power is not considered very promising by many at the present time. This video discusses the history of nuclear energy and suggests that many unfortunate choices were made over the decades which has resulted in a far from optimal nuclear power industry today. One particular interesting assertion is that the uranium and plutonium reactors pursued for generating electricity were so developed because of the interest in those sources for weapons. The suggestion here is that technology not of interest for weapons could be much preferable for power generation.
