This video, presented with a synopsis by Popular Science, makes the case for thorium-based nuclear reactors. It reviews the history of the thorium reactor first proposed by Alvin Weinberg and built at Oak Ridge, Tennessee in the 1960s. Interviews with physicist Kirk Soresen – who started a company to build small, modular liquid thorium fluoride reactors – and thorium advocate John Kutsch highlight the advantages of thorium fuel. Scenes from the 2011 Thorium Energy Alliance conference held in Washington, DC show an enthusiastic response to thorium-based energy technology.
