LFTR in 5 Minutes – THORIUM REMIX 2011

DVD: kunaki.com …the perfect Christmas gift for anyone unwilling to watch a THORIUM video on YouTube. Know anyone who ALWAYS votes, but is NOT down with the YouTube? (Cough-parents-cough.) Please consider ordering multiple and passing them around… they really are INEXPENSIVE to manufacture. ThoriumRemix.com – Thorium is readily available & can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium’s capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today’s energy/climate crisis. LFTR is a type of Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). This video summarizes over 6 hours worth of thorium talks given by Kirk Sorensen and other thorium technologists. THORIUM REMIX 2011 starts with a 5 minute TL;WL summary, to hold you over until you find your Ritalin.

    @3rdbillygoat The jokes visuals are mine. Kirk supplied his Power Point presentations which are used throughout. But the “suck it” joke about wind power was (for example) mine. And probably an error in retrospect as I offer the video up as an educational resource.

  4. 3rdbillygoat says:

    Gordon: Once again, awesome job!! REALLY enjoyed this re-mix. Thank you for all your hard work; really appreciated.

    BTW – are some of those funny graphic interjections yours or Kirk’s?

    Kirk could totally do stand-up – new comedy niche – engineering comedy. He’s pretty frickn’ hilarious.

    This looks amazing.

    I watch TWiT all the time, will have to check out Episode 84 of DKSH.

    KICK ASS IDEA !!! we all should be bashing down the door of our politicians and DEMANDING LFTRs ( that’s right – DEMANDING , not asking , DEMANDING !!! ) right now !!!
    ow , but what do we get from the polies instead ? – carbon tax !!! bloody idiots want us to be poor or dead … :(
    Grate video , i’m telling every1 about it ! :) HUGE THANKS :)

    @greatestfool87 I’ll crunch the numbers for you. Thorium has an energy density of around 20 gigajoules per gram. The energy consumption per US citizen is 327.38 gigajoules every year. Divide consumption by density and you get 16.369 grams, or 0.58 ounces. That’s equivalent to a cube of 1.4 cubic centimeters volume, given the density of thorium is 11.7 g/cm3. That’s a marble with a diameter of 1.4 cm, or 0.55 inches.

    A marble or thorium with a half-inch diameter will power you for a year.

    @bnightm Chemical accidents are easy to deal with. Gasses can be sucked up via fumehoods and stabilized via chemical processing. Industry has been using hydrogen and fluorine gasses safely for years. These gasses are also shortlived in the atmosphere, they react very quickly with pretty much anything to form more stable products. This is unlike radioisotopes, which remain dangerous no matter what chemical form they take, so it becoems important to ensure those remain immobile.

    Hey folks, if you are interested in helping promote this technology, obviously linking-to, favoring, liking helps… they’re the classics. What is new is IMDB just added this doc to their listings. It is easy to find, just search for “thorium”. If you can populate some honest reviews, I’m sure that’ll drive more views. Honesty is fine, this is the best I could do, not the best that could have been done. But if you mention the importance of the info contained that’ll help. Thanks!

  11. Tack599 says:

    @Kudamorf , LFTR would consume about 97+ percent of the fuel. Some fuel transmuted in the reactor and lost in side reactions. Some small fraction is lost during reprocessing.

  12. Stewkers says:

    Really great video! Very informative, I enjoyed it!

  13. darthvader5300 says:

    I suggest that further cooperation be temporarily halted until normalcy has been achieved between our two countries, Russia and America. We are being recalled to our posts and placed on combat alert due to U.S missile deployments in a blatant act of encirclement of Russia. I suggest those who are reading this, if they can afford it, to go to safer places where they can secure themselves from the chaos and mobs, secure food and water and all kinds of medicines and medical kits and supplies.

  14. darthvader5300 says:

    @oceancape Unfortunately the leaders of western countries are only mindful of their selfish interests. We Russians are already building civilian LFTR power plants which unfortunately they will reject because of their anti-nuclear stand in order to maintain and build up their political foundations and Russia cannot spare any civilian LFTR power station building capacity for the west for Russia is facing an encrouching Ice Age. 2 villages were destroyed by advancing glaciers, that’s serious.

  15. oceancape says:

    Imagine if western countries jointly developed LFTR technology over the last 20 years instead of spending 100 billion building a space station. You can only imagine how mature the technology would be, and China could stop building coal fired power plants. I wish North America had strong leaders.

  16. darthvader5300 says:

    We Russians are way ahead of the Chinese in using thorium for our military are using experimental thorium fuelled light water breeder reactors successfully already & has already embarked on building several commercial civilian LFTR power plants along side with our presently on line nuclear BREST reactor power plants. This is were most of our vast oil and gas revenues went so we can divert abiotic oil & gas for non-fuel uses like petro-chemicals production used in plastics, paints, polymers, etc

  17. darthvader5300 says:

    Thorium is in the same situation, only this time the stakes are even higher for the first nation to develop a commercially viable and mass produceable Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactors in vast numbers with each generating 500 to 1,000 megawatts of electricity will have vast economic leap over the rest of the world for thorium is as common as lead and LFTR power plants easier to build and thorium is much easier to extract and handle than uranium. The U.S should take heed or be left behind.

  18. darthvader5300 says:

    At first no one wants to accept and use the new successful alloy but a German industrialist took the risks, tested it to destruction, and then scrap all of his existing machine tools after using them to build new ones that were many times better in order to make full use of the new alloy tool steel that remained hard at red heat and requires only air cooling. As a result the machine tool industry has to follow suit or else the German industrialists will monopolize the machine tool industry.

  19. darthvader5300 says:

    In the hey day of the industrial revolution machine tools are all the rage but they’re still restricted to using a proprietary Mushet alloy tool steel & high carbon tool steel for their tool bits. Then a new tool steel alloy was discovered, tested to destruction but survived & the testing machine tools were reduced to scrap metal. The machine tool industry response was that of dismay because to make full use of it’s potential they have to scrap all of their existing machine tools for new ones.

  20. darthvader5300 says:

    The nuclear industry is uranium & plutonium based. To use thorium means they’ll have to scrap most of their existing uranium-industrial infra-technostructure & retool the remaining ones to use thorium while replacing the scrapped industrial uranium-based infra-technostructure wt new thorium-based infra-technostructure scientific-engineering industrial and R&D facilities. This has a historical parallel pattern in the development of the machine tool industry w/c is the heart & core of all industry

  21. TheBibliofilus says:

    Amazing and very informative video, but I got to say it: Kirk is a fantastic speaker which withthis tricky subject makes ALL the differance!

  22. zakalwe101 says:

    This is fantastic, mind-boggling stuff. Let’s DO IT!!

  23. darthvader5300 says:

    Have you Americans and British forgotten the fact that you have conducted above surface nuclear tests in the 1940s, 1950s,& early 1960s and yet there is no world wide cataclysmic radiation sickness being reported by independent non-partisan and non-biased scientific reports who are scientists themselves. And you are worried about Japan’s nuclear disaster spreading to your water supplies!? Mass Media is dependent on scare tactics in order to sell more news papers, raise their ratings, & profits!

  24. greatestfool87 says:

    A lifetime supply of thorium in your hand. Is that relative to the consumption that an average person uses? It should specify what it’s referring to because it’s sounds like blatant PR speak.

  25. TheAtheistPaladin says:


    I wonder about that too, my friend.
