Thorium: Clean Nuclear Energy?

From: EddieN
Sent on: Monday, December 3, 2012 2:24 AM
I thought that this was interesting:

"One critical advantage America has over any other nation developing this technology is our Uranium-233 stockpile. We have about 1 ton of pure Uranium-233, a rare isotope not found in nature. It was isolated at a taxpayer cost of $4.5 billion in today's dollars. No one else on the planet has such a resource. And we are spending $500 million to destroy it. Right now.
 
Private industry is actively developing this technology (as are other nations), but DoE destruction of U-233 puts the future viability of this technology at risk! Please take a moment to sign the Thorium Petition and halt this mind-boggling destruction."
