Thorium[edit source]

Glad to see this page.

Quick comment, no time to edit... solutions which are not commercially viable should be described as such - e.g. thorium reactors. There's an argument to be made for nuclear, and for investment in R&D for thorium and many other technologies, but it's very important to distinguish available solutions from possible future ones. --Chriswaterguy (talk) 19:18, 23 July 2014 (PDT)

Yes, I realize that new reactor designs are pretty much vaporware until someone builds one and gets it working but the idea of that many conventional reactors working, and especially with newly trained staff running them, scares me given the world's experience with reactors so far. I would expect at the very least to see several of them ejected (hopefully they would have this capacity or possibly just be submersible) to the bottom of the ocean when they ran out of control. If renewable energy could be used, such as water current power, I would much rather have that, but I don't know if enough power would be available without building prohibitively huge structures. I have edited the page a bit. --GreenGuy (talk) 20:28, 29 July 2014 (PDT)
