Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors

The US built an operational LFTR reactor which went online November 3, 1954. Although LFTR reactors are safer in many ways, the US instead chose to pursue water cooled breeder reactor technology, due to the fact that breeders produce radioactive daughter elements which can be used to produce nuclear weapons. If we had chosen a path inspired by peace and science the world would have been a safer place, with clean, abundant energy. Smaller, safer, plants that could be built virtually anywhere, no longer restricted to being built near oceans and major rivers. LFTR reactors can even use our nuclear waster stockpile for fuel.
