Time we all woke up to the dishonest push going on about Thorium Nuclear Reactors

Anyone in the nuclear industry would know that these reactors do not exist, cost $billions, there’s no market for them.

Why then does the nuclear industry tolerate all the propaganda for thorium reactors?

One can only speculate – but I guess that as these are no threat really to the existing nuclear industry, with its uranium fuelled reactors, Big Nuclear doesn’t really mind that the pretense of “clean” “safe” new designs might persuade the public that the nuclear industry is now OK.

Promising safety, promising that these new reactors will get rid of the wastes problem (not really true), the Thorium dream gives perhaps a new air of respectability to the nuclear industry, and so helps Big Nuclear to postpone its inevitable demise.
