‘Super Fuel, Thorium, The Green Energy Source for the Future’, will leave you shaking your head at the nuclear industry. Okay, I can understand how momentum in any industry works. Things are moving along smoothly, with no serious problems occurring, when along comes something that ‘might’ be a better idea than the product currently being produced. This new ‘product’ is looked into, and sure enough, it does appear to be an improvement over the status quo, and there are even a few successful experiments seeming to verify that it is not only better, but safer as well.

It would appear in the nuclear industry’s case however, that momentum won out over common sense. I’ll let Richard Martin’s book tell the rest of the story, but be prepared as warned earlier, to be left shaking your head.

Fans (like me) of Admiral Hyman G Rickover will be more than a little surprised at his impact on this outcome, but only a little. Martin has compiled an interesting book, clearly well researched and brought forth in a way that even the layman will understand what happened, or rather – didn’t.

I’m still shaking my head and after reading this, you will be too.

I'd like to learn more about this amazing resource. I have recommended it to local politicians and have NOT had feedback. What does that mean, I wonder? Vested interests? I'd like to read a review by a scientist....

this book, superfuel... is very informative and offers a convincing argument as to why we should use thorium nuclear energy to replace fossil fuel. It also pinpoints the historical time of the early 60's when we chose the insane path championed by the military, rather than the peaceful one which would have promoted thorium nuclear energy. That fork in the road has produced the mess we're in today with climate change.
