What if we could design and build a reactor :- that uses no water and so cant have high pressure steam or hydrogen explosions,- that fissions over 99% of its fuel so theres no waste to store for hundreds of thousands of years,- with fuel that cantMoreWhat if we could design and build a reactor :- that uses no water and so cant have high pressure steam or hydrogen explosions,- that fissions over 99% of its fuel so theres no waste to store for hundreds of thousands of years,- with fuel that cant have a nuclear melt down,- that can consume spent nuclear fuel from other reactors?Well, weve already built one, and we ran it for 5 years!

(But you never heard about it...)A Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR) produces energy using a liquid (molten) nuclear fuel, not a solid fuel. LFTRs also use a coolant that remains liquid at atmospheric pressure.With liquid fuel and atmospheric pressures, LFTRs solve the safety and waste disposal problems our current (1970s design) light water reactors (LWR) have.George Lerner is an expert at solving complex technical & communication problems, in controversial fields such as alternative energy, health care, climate change.

He can communicate complex ideas clearly, even to emotionally invested or polarized people.In this book, you will learn - how LFTRs work, - how they can be so much safer, - how they are completely different than LWR, - what it will take to build them, - technical and regulatory challenges still to be solved, - how they will fare in accidents, - the economics of designing and operating them.
