Kirk Sorensen is one of the most active and articulate advocates of nuclear energy that I know. Listen carefully to this interview and see if you agree.
I got permission to take a few hours off of my day job yesterday morning to attend a professional event related to future employment. I crossed town on the excellent Metro system to the Florida Ave-Galludet University stop and made my way to the Kellog Conference Center for the opening of the first session of […]
Robert Hargraves, Charles Barton and Rod Adams talk about the Thorium Energy Alliance Conference and other miscellaneous atomic topics. The conversation ranged from thorium, to uranium supplies, to chemistry versus engineering, to the history of Oak Ridge, to the unreality of energy solutions that require continuous cash transfers from the public to the developer. For […]
Kirk Sorensen, one of the most enthusiastic energy geeks I know, spent the 40th anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon talking to a group of Google employees about LFTR. I have written about LFTR’s on Atomic Insights several times in the past; I even gave it a slightly different spelling – Liftr™ – […]

With the help of Charles Barton, Kirk runs the excellent […]
On Sunday January 25, 2009, I invited three of the most active pro-nuclear bloggers for a chat about the state of the nuclear industry, clean atomic energy versus “clean” coal, renewable portfolio standards, effects of the current economic crisis. Charles Barton blogs at Nuclear Green and Energy from Thorium John Wheeler produces This Week In […]
Now that I have had a chance to view the Google Tech Talk I embedded in my post yesterday evening, I am inspired to make a few suggestions to the loose group of people that are working on Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors. Change the name from LFTR, a bureaucratic looking acronym to LiftrTM – a […]
