There is a company that knows how to include thorium into existing power plants and they have contracts to experiment in Russia and India: Thorium Power.
Their technology couuld quickly be included in existing plants refueling cycles.
Oh bomb making from Thorium is tricky as U233 has less than a 2 year half life. It is very radioactive.
Really, if it is running our lives, is not the IRS manuals poetry? If not why not?
Extremely simple explanation for global warming is *sunspots*:
NASA s latest report (March 2009) on sunspots is that there will be a massive ramp up of activity in 2010. It does not look that way to me nor the above author. Still another year or so is required to truly show the statistical trend.
Real science will prevail.
This sounds way to similar to the exploit used in the book P1 -- over thirty years ago.
a very tiny yellow bikini comes to mind going round and round.
His most interesting treatise on physics can be found here."E8 encapsulates the symmetries of a geometric object that is 57-dimensional and is itself is 248-dimensional. Lisi says "I think our universe is this beautiful shape." What makes E8 so exciting is that Nature also seems to have embedded it at the heart of many bits of physics. One interpretation of why we have such a quirky list of fundamental particles is because they all result from different facets of the strange symmetries of E8. Lisi's breakthrough came when he noticed that some of the equations describing E8's structure matched his own. "My brain exploded with the implications and the beauty of the thing," he tells New Scientist. "I thought: 'Holy crap, that's it!'
No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
