Storyline

Kirk Sorensen stumbles across Oak Ridge National Laboratory's research into the Thorium Molten Salt Reactor while researching means to power a lunar space colony for NASA. History of this design is recounted, including the politics (and the need for a weaponizable nuclear fuel) which killed it. Discussing energy alternatives, the capacity of solar/wind renewable is examined. Can society depend of intermittent power sources? It is even possible politically to move people to more expensive sources of energy? The Molten Salt Reactor offers us a choice between future of abundant clean energy, and a future in which we continue to wage wars over dwindling fossil fuel resources. Written by Gordon McDowell

The future of energy
13 December 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Best film I've seen about thorium. I would love to see this as a reality soon enough. This guy is not only really bright but he also have a sense of humor.

If it is one thing you would should watch about our future energy consumption this is it.

I am 16 years old and English is my second language, I understood most of this but I will warn you it isn't very easy, you got to have some basic knowledge about Chemistry.

This movie made my day, faith in humanity restored... partly.

Please watch this movie. Spread the knowledge. You wont regret it.
