Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors. The Scientific Gamer

Thorium has 1 million times the energy density of fossil fuels. Energy from coal is $0.05/kw, thorium would be $0.03/kw in a Molten Salt Reactor. A MSR ran successfully for 5 years in the 60s. A Thorium version was designed but never built thanks to Pres Nixon and a fast breeder program that was to produce weapons grade material.
