Molten Salt Reactors (such as LFTR) can produce hydrogen for fuel cells, without using oil/coal, and without producing long-term nuclear waste.
Response to “Colorado’s Fracking Woes Show Fight Brewing in Oklahoma, Texas and Other Drought-Ridden Areas”
Fracking uses water, often in drought-ridden areas, and leaves it highly polluted. LFTRs would use no water, and could desalinate water, providing clean water for agriculture.
Here’s what I wrote in response to “Nuclear Energy’s Future: Thorium”, by Zain Nayer, Matthew Liu, Gilbert Yang. There is zero risk of nuclear meltdown in a LFTR.
Storing nuclear waste can be done. What are the design requirements for a workable storage method? Better than “stick it in the ground and hope we’re safe”…
