THORIUM REMIX 2016 explores harnessing the energy of Thorium using Molten Salt Reactors. Thorium is an amazingly abundant energy source, but it presents unique challenges that make it a poor fit for conventional nuclear reactors. The fuel must be repeatedly reprocessed, resulting in a very inefficient process.
 
Molten Salt Reactors are a very different concept from our existing nuclear reactors. The fuel is liquid, not solid. The coolant is at atmospheric pressure, not extremely-high pressure. The coolant is chemically stable, not an easily broken covalent bond. With an appropriate reactor/fuel combination, a Molten Salt Reactor can even generate energy while producing no long-lasting nuclear waste.
 
By combining two proven concepts: Thorium Breeding, and Liquid Fission, we can transform the abundant resource which is Thorium- into pollution-free energy.
 
The entire Thorium documentary is also available for download. This 2-hour edit (as opposed to 130-minute edit on YouTube) was created in response to Facebook's video upload limit of 2-hours.
 
 
...or use this DropBox folder to load the documentary directly onto your iPad or iPhone! You will need to have DropBox app installed, and then set the desired video "offline". You can then watch the entire documentary right in the DropBox app itself.
 
While I personally prefer the 10-minute-longer version, this 2h edit features the removal of the 2 swear words, and fewer details regarding the challenges of using water as a coolant. The shortening may make this edit preferable for educators (if the s-word is a problem), and for nuclear advocates who would rather focus on the advantages of nuclear and not-so-much the challenges.

These downloadable MP4s may be used to foster discussion on broader topics than just Thorium. From specific to general: Th (Thorium), Sa (Salt), Nu (Nuclear) and En (Energy).
 
Such video clips and YouTube links can be combined on social platforms such as Twitter.
Short clips become "native content" favored by social platforms. You do not need to link back to the Thorium documentary at all, if you do not want to. Use these clips to advance the broader energy conversation however you see fit.
 
If you think clean, abundant energy is important, consider supporting future iterations of this message. This is the 3rd iteration, and it exists because viewers of previous iterations paid-it-forward. Supporters help financially, and provide critical feedback on pre-release edits.


If you peer-review an upcoming THORIUM REMIX and think it sucks, you can cancel your pledge before I collect. If you do like it, I hope you'll continue your support indefinitely. This message can be improved continually, and you will enjoy a better viewing experience should you choose to re-watch in the future.
