gordonmcdowell at YouTube - A remix and compression of three one-hour talks into one 16.5 minute video. The World's Energy Problems Were Solved in the Nineteen-Sixties, with the Liquid-Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR). Cheap, safe, almost limitless electricity, with very little spent fuel to dispose of and no weapons-grade nuclear products. Why don't we have these today, all over the world? Politics, of course.

The author of that blog also gave a Google Tech Talk on thorium. Turns out most nuclear physicists can do their entire careers without learning about thorium reactors.

You also have as on gov't regulation blocking thorium reactors and other nuclear power innovations:
