NEW NUCLEAR IS THE FUTURE!

" Synergy : And we can use Nuclear Thermal Rocket (NTR) research to justify developing Molten Salt and other types of more useful to the Mars Colonial Transporter reactors" - DRS Rant 10.24.13A5678

Dr Hansen not subtly making the case for #LFTR and Fast Breeder reactors

---- New York Times March 2013 ---

In an informative general overview of alternative nuclear power, the New York Times’ Justin Gillis draws attention to three companies that in their own different way promise to deliver nuclear power that is safer, more efficient, more cost effective, less weapons-prone and that leaves less waste than conventional reactors. Some of the alternatives can use nuclear waste as fuel.

Regular readers of my blog will recognize each of Gillis’ example: Lockheed Martin’s fusion power project; Flibe Energy’s thorium-fueled molten salt reactor; and TerraPower’s “fast reactor”, backed by Terra’s chairman, the one and only Bill Gates.

Gillis has chosen three fine, exemplary companies that are working hard to deliver superior nuclear technologies and help nuclear play a big role in providing low carbon energy that the world will need to help stave off the disastrous climate changing consequences of burning CO2 emitting ...
