Video Day: The Molten Salt Thorium Reactor

Cheerful Nuclear Video for Friday

This is a nice little pro-nuclear video, which ends with a push for the development of molten salt thorium reactors. One of the nice things about this video is the comparison between quantities of nuclear waste (tiny amounts) and solar panel waste (huge amounts). Both of these waste streams contain toxic materials.

Nuclear power doesn't generate 19% of the USA's energy.  It generates 19% of the USA's electricity.

Unfortunately, the comment thread of the video is way too full of crap to get a correction like this up to the visibility threshold.  It's things like this that make it next to impossible to properly inform the public.
