Robert Hargraves "Aim High!" presentation has evolved into both a book and extended lecture. His thesis is that a non-CO2 emitting energy source must also be cheaper than coal, or will ultimately fail to displace fossil fuels as a means of energy production.
THORIUM Energy Cheaper than Coal is available in hardcover and Kindle eBook. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1478161299/
Hargraves met me at LAX, then shared a flight with me to Shanghai. At LAX, and en-route we conducted video interview. He also allowed for some b-roll capture on a touristy-day with Mark Ho. Expect Hargraves to be prominently featured in future Thorium Remix efforts.
Robert's book is also an important asset in educating the public about thorium (and molten salt reactors). It fills a niche that Superfuel does not... Superfuel is a narrative work. Cheaper Than Coal is much more analytical, and better answers the oh-so-common refrain, "Why would we pursue thorium when we have the Sun?"
That is the response offered by the Canadian Green Party leader. That is perpetually asked on Twitter. There is an answer to that question, and it is contained within this video.
