Yeyy!!!! the Green party in baden würtenberg (the strongest in hole germany the württenberg landtag prime minister is green) pushes the atom-lobby hard! LOL!
now germany go for atom free country faster!
We love CO2.
Should go with thorium reactors. I don't know why it's never brought up anywhere. I guess because it doesn't make the entrenched industries money, so the underlings thinking they get the table scraps comply and defend. Same old story.
There seems to have been a surge of interest and activity in the last few years. The optimist in me likes to think that is driven by thorium's widespread availability and relative safety in certain reactor types; the cynic in me argues that the upsurge in activity might be driven by improvements in extracting fissile materials (mostly U-233 AFAIK) from the thorium cycle for weapons production.

the second big problem with thorium reactors are germany already test this typ of reactor and they shut down 1 because of danger atomic waste.
sure its only 500-1000 years instead of 20 000 years but its still danger.
thats the closed german Thorium reactor:
Of course the primary effect of this will be increased CO2 emissions. The Greens are the most environmentally destructive political party.
