Thorium can potentially solve our energy crisis

Thorium is readily available & can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium's capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today's energy/climate crisis. This 16 minute video summarizes 197 minutes worth of Google Tech Talks on the subject of Thorium & LFTR.

This edit was created back in 2009, when the best video resources available on the subject were Google Tech Talks. Since then I've shot numerous lectures on the subject and created a higher quality summary.
