    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.

    sure the biggest problem about a thorium reactor is : no one use it.

    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:

    You are wrong (as usual). THTR-300 was shut down due to a combination of misplaced fears after Chernobyl, constantly changing regulations, mechanical failures and an accident involving a broken fuel pebble.

    Wrong, this article is not about another power plant being shut down, but about the grid operator opting out of keeping one of the shut down stations in reserve for the winter. Here is an English article about this:

    Of course the primary effect of this will be increased CO2 emissions. The Greens are the most environmentally destructive political party.

    the primary effect of this is the drop of the 8. nuclear power plant.
