Time to switch to thorium

I read a most fascinating article about nuclear energy - you know - the energy solution that's too dangerous and produces too much waste to be a viable option for our fossil-fuel-free future? Yeah, whatever - that stance is so last century.

You see, back in the day, we could have used thorium for nuclear fuel instead of uranium, but America needed the byproduct for nuclear weapons. Today, thorium could be the key to a safe, cheap, efficient nuclear future. Read the Wired article here. Visit the site that promotes thorium as a nuclear solution here.
