India is bringing two thorium reactors online next year. India's roadmap is to have 25 of its energy from nuclear power by 2025.

China has 21 nuclear plants running, and 27 more under construction. They are also building reactors for other countries now. In the next six years they will triple their nuclear power capacity, and triple it again by 2030.

no, you are confused. The worst case is exactly what LFTR addresses and of course its engineers talk about that. Blow a hole in a LTFR reactors, the fuel drains into collection tanks and cools like glass. The salts are chemically stable and don't burn, decompose or explode.
