And by “destroying,” they mean find a hidey-hole, pay $500M to contractors to bury it there, and then make the contractors swear never to tell where X-marks-the-spot. U-233 has a half-life of 159,200 years, so pretty sure if it’s needed, you can just go there and dig it back up. Am I missing something?

Interact with our office:
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."
