LFTR in 5 Minutes - THORIUM REMIX 2011­

Chicagoland is heavily dependent on coal generators. Currently, we as a nation are debating about alternative or supplementary sources of energy. Recently, I watched a video about LFTR technology. Are the concepts scientifically sound? If so, is it worth pursuing?

I've posted this here because it's currently the only hackerspace in the area that has a forum. The members are in a better position to utilize this information in a reasoned way.

The video also touches on ways the generator can be used to create car fuels. According to this model, should cars of the future be diesel/electric hybrids?

Finally, can the reactor capture heat by also using JTEC?

There are immense policy and public relations hurdles to implementing these technologies. But if LFTR and JTEC are sound, then I feel the need to spread the news.
