MORE GREENHOUSE-FRIENDLY NUCLEAR POWER: After my earlier post on Polywell / Bussard fusion research, reader Bill Woods writes:

Another potential big deal is the thorium breeder reactor. For one presentation, see a Google Tech Talk: “The Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor: What Fusion Wanted to Be”.

“[T]horium expert Kirk Sorensen”, who advocates this type of reactor at http://thoriumenergy. blogspot.com/, is working on a masters degree in nuclear engineering from the University of Tennessee. Maybe you’d like to do a podcast interview with him?

And then there’s this: “Dense Plasma Fusion: Lawrenceville Plasma Physics Gets Funding”

We need faster progress on all fronts.
