What if I could give you a safe replacement for nuclear energy, coal and oil at the same time?
I can't, but maybe in time I can, because I'm in engineering school.
I've been enraptured by what I've been hearing and confirming myself about something that may be the panacea for our energy problems. It's called a Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor, and there are so many upsides to this new energy source, even the downsides are manageable.
I won't go into the details of the nuclear physics, but it's basically a safer nuclear reaction by a big factor, and its byproducts may be just as valuable.
Byproducts like Dimethyl Ether, which can be used in diesel engines without engine modification, and this liquid's purity from the process used to make it is high.
The list goes on and on,

LFT has been a staple of the Chinese energy platform for some time now, and yes, it is FAR safer than the ticking time bombs they use now. The only thing I am not clear on is is this method also viable for medical isotopes?
There is now (after Fukushima's ongoing disaster) growing interest in this technology and hopefully we will see the day when uranium will be left in the ground.
