I was recently sent this podcast from a friend and was blown away by the impact of the message. These top scientists simply lay out the facts regarding this controversial, yet incredible source of energy.
From all nuclear waste in the world being able to fit into a football field sized area to discussion on liquid thorium salt reactors, you will definitely find this engaging and easy for your non-technical friends to understand.
I urge you to listen to this now, bookmark it, and share it with your friends. It may very well change their (or your) stance on this viable energy source.
