    Simple answer. We are led to believe there is a crisis. We must lead others to think that oil and nuclear are our only forms. Who ever has more, has more "power/control" in the world. Why has the US not touched its reserves? Because when the rest of the world runs dry, the US will hav theirs.

    We dont switch or look into thorium, because then we lose "power" and control.


    Personally, anything to drop gas prices, and my energy bill, i am for!!!

    If that is the case and trying not to get political here,then if Iran only wants to use nuclear reactors for peaceful purposes,then they should have no problem if we gave them the Thorium option,if they balk at the idea and blatantly refuse to discuss it,then they are saying we can't make a bomb with that crap
