The USA built a working molten-salt reactor, which Nixon ordered abandoned because it wasn't useful for plutonium production.

the temperatures, pressures and the levels of radiation that occur in those designs.

It sounds like you're not at all familiar with the design that Sorensen is talking about. It operates at one atmosphere.


Comment: Confederates vs GLBTQ (Score 1) 815 815

So it's apparently fine and everyone is in love with the idea of banning the Confederate Battle Flag but if it were a Rainbow GLBTQ flag they were banning there'd be charges of hate crimes. I support these groups banning these Battle Flag products from their retail systems. If you are going to allow this kind of right of association you also have to let business like photographers and cake decorators choose who they do business. Governments can't be allowed to tell me who I can and can not associate with or do business with.

What happened to the feminist movement is typical for successful reform movements. Once they achieved their reasonable goals (equality before the law), the reasonable people in the movement went on to pursue other goals, leaving the dregs behind. That's why feminism today is lousy with witch-hunting and guilt-peddling.

Two other examples are the civil rights movement (it used to be MLK calling for an end to Jim Crow, today it's Jesse Jackson shaking down large corporations for not meeting racial hiring quotas), and the labor movement (used to be concerned with workplace safety and humane working conditions, now it's just a way for looters to take money from workers to buy hookers and blow for politicians and mobsters.)


Hold on to the root.
