I have some legit questions for people who hate renewables and think they're a waste of time/money/resources/hope. Not looking to start arguments here, I'm looking to understand views
Are you arguing we should put all the money currently spent on renewables (including research, govt subsidies, etc) into research for advanced nuclear? Worth it to put the amount of clean energy in the US on hold for, at minimum, years until we have designs certified AND built?
Or should we try convincing/enticing/forcing utilities to starting build more large reactors with existing design certs NOW, like AP1000s? Or build ESBWRs, APR1400s (neither of which have been built in the US before), also putting the addition of clean energy on hold for years?

1/ Liquid Fluoride #ThoriumReactors - a type of nuclear energy - have the potential to restore our environment, enrich humanity, and power interstellar space exploration. Image
2/ There are many types of Thorium Reactors, but most refer to the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor ("lifter"). LFTRs are a type of low pressure, high temperature, liquid-fueled, thermal breeder reactor. If developed, LFTRs would be the most radical fission reactor ever invented. Image
3/ LFTRs are a type of Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), which were developed from the Aircraft Reactor Experiment (ARE), but more notably the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE) looking to utilize the #thorium fuel cycle.

After #cyberattack while NPCIL officials have admitted to their administrative system being breached by malware, actual damage assessment is yet to be determined. Meanwhile #cybersecurity community is concerned whether India's #thorium secrets got stolen. greatgameindia.com/did-kudankulam…
@issuemakerslab #cybersecurity experts based out of #SouthKorea who have been monitoring suspicious activity in Indian #cyberspace, have claimed that ‘the possible reason behind the #cyberattack was to obtain information about #thorium based nuclear power. greatgameindia.com/did-kudankulam…
On the morning of October 29, 2019, @GreatGameIndia was the first to report #cyberattack at #KKNPP). #NPCIL after initially claiming it to be ‘false information’ did actually admit next day that their system was indeed breached by the #malware. greatgameindia.com/kudankulam-nuc…

Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

#DemDebates
Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

#climateforum @wolfblitzer @ErinBurnett @andersoncooper @ChrisCuomo @DonLemon
thx:@GovNuclear
Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?
