Re: Hmmm

There's one other part about molten salt systems which bears thinking about: There's enough thorium to be had in those coal ash slurry ponds to make processing them for fuel an economic proposition. Whilst there is a lot more thorium kicking around in rare earth mine tailings, it may pay the cleanup costs of those older sites and avert environmental problems. The _two_ largest environmental disasters in the USA so far this century have been coal ash slurry dam breaks.
