This subreddit is devoted to the discussion of thorium as a future energy resource, and particularly the machine to most safely and efficiently extract that energy – the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR), pioneered by American nuclear physicist Dr. Alvin M. Weinberg.

>"It was a successful technology that was dropped because it was too different from the main lines of reactor development.. I hope that in a second nuclear era, the technology will be resurrected." - Alwin Weinberg

Thorium energy can help us

  • check CO2 emissions and global warming

  • cut deadly air pollution

  • provide safe and inexhaustible energy

  • increase human prosperity
