A nuclear dream from London

A good read: "A silly claim is now making the rounds the United States that a supply of natural gas that – at unchanged production – could last a hundred years. Until I see more evidence of a scientific nature, I intend to believe that, with luck, the present production of natural gas in that country could be continued for at most 50 years. On the other hand, it is certain that there is enough uranium and thorium to supply every reactor being constructed (or for that matter contemplated) for at least a hundred years. This is because, as I pointed out in my latest Energy Tribune article, it is nuclear and not natural gas or anything else that will benefit the most from the march of technology."... "The most expensive nuclear equipment now being purchased or contemplated is, in reality, less expensive than the least expensive alternatives that are presently available!" http://www.energytribune.com/articles.cfm/10121/A-Nuclear-Dream-From-London
