The above video is inspiring, seductive and well produced. It makes a number of important points, but it is missing at least three key elements that would change it from being a vision that is as unreachable as a mirage to something that is tangible, optimistic and achievable. Those elements are uranium, thorium and plutonium – the fuels for fission, the world’s new fire. (Disclaimer – The linked video is a bit dated and does not have the pizazz or production values of the RMI video. Are there any volunteers for an effort to improve the quality and reduce the boredom while retaining the message?)
