Interestingly the whole thorium cycle (thorium based reactors) are pretty safe and there is technology available today where you could build thorium reactors. I have a friend who is doing a PhD on the thorium based fuel cycle, and he was telling me incidences like fukushima (potential meltdown) can be prevented in a thorium reactor. World thorium reserves are much much higher and thorium as a fuel is much better than uranium. But after incidents like 3 mile island and Chernobyl (and unfortunately fukushima) the greens have just one thing to say ...."all nuclear plants are unsafe". That's just ludicrous. If that were the case, flying was also unsafe in 1908. If we had stopped there there would never have been a modern jetliner. Having said that, let's not forget what is happening is Japan is really tragic. Let's just pray for the people and the most of all the workers inside the plants. Let's hope all turns out well.[/quote]
