Thorium Knowledge Base

There exists a lot of misinformation and misunderstandings – even deliberate disinformation – around Thorium and Molten Salt Burner technology. Our knowledge base aims to provide the most accurate, up-to-date and scientifically valid information in these fields.

We will also publish here relevant articles of interest to our mission to help build sustainable energy for the world.

We only link to information we trust.

The Feasibility of Molten Salt Machines

Today we are discussing Generation IV nuclear reactors and the prospect of Thorium fuels and Fast Neutron reactors.

6-1/2 Hours of Thorium Audio Visual Content

Are you going on a long trip? Do you absorb information from sound AND video? Do you want reliable, trusted information – and facts – on how Molten Salt Fission Energy TechnologyTM using Thorium works. And all of the benefits? Avoid the speculation and doubt and listen to the people in the game: like us, and those in the following 6 1/2 hours of YouTube video. Courtesy of Gordon McDowell – a long time advocate of Thorium Molten Salt and video caster of Thorium and related content.

By the way this video and even more can be found on the Thorium Remix website, also by Gord.

Unintended Consequences, The Lie That Killed Millions and Accelerated Climate Change – Dr. George Erickson

Unintended Consequences, The Lie That Killed Millions and Accelerated Climate Change by best selling Science Author and Adventurer, Dr. George Erickson

“Unintended Consequences .. is excellent. I will recommend it widely. I am impressed with the strength of your well documented writing.”

Dr. Martin Goodman MD

“I am writing to recommend George Erickson’s Unintended Consequences: The Lie that Killed Millions and Accelerated Climate Change.”

Em. Prof. Richard Steeves, MD, PhD

“This great book reveals why the green movement is wrong on nuclear energy. Erickson builds a compelling case against the anti-nuclear movement which is clearly damaging our ability to combat Climate Change effectively.”

Mathijs Beckers, Author

“Your writing is brilliant and so clear – I want to borrow some of the things.”

Dr. James E. Hansen, former chief climate scientist at NASA, now chief climate scientist at Columbia University

“By comparing the safety, reliability and emissions footprint of nuclear reactors to carbon fuel combustion and intermittent wind and solar, Dr. Erickson sends a clear message to people who love the earth – nuclear is the rational way forward.”

Dr. Tim Maloney

“Unintended Consequences is rational thought for those seeking a sustainable planet. Thank you for spelling it out in lay language.  Ditto your advocacy for advanced nuclear.”

Dr. Rod Coenen
