Using Thorium Energy to Address Environmental Problems




Use of 1 pound of Thorium nuclear fuel replaces the burning of 3 million pounds of coal and prevents the production of 11 million pounds of CO2. The 1 pound of fission product waste produced from burning 1 pound of Thorium fuel decays to safety within 400 years (83% of the fission products from Thorium decay to the level of the natural background in 10 years). USA used no Thorium fuel to produce energy in 2009.

Why not reduce Americas dependence on foreign supplied fuels through use of clean Thorium nuclear energy in 2010?
