The Truth about Thorium

Popular Mechanics includes a very nice article this month about using Thorium for nuclear power.  As I've mentioned here before, Thorium is more plentiful than Uranium, it produces more power by mass than Uranium, its waste is not usable for weapons and decays far faster than Uranium.  The ony reason we're not using it today is because we wanted Uranium for bombs.
