USA NEEDS TO LEAD WORLD IN MASSIVE CLIMATE REPAIR EFFORT, BEGINNING IMMEDIATLY, FEATURING MOLTEN SALT REACTORS ALONG WITH SOLAR, CONSERVATION, AND REFORRESTATION!

Because the World is 30 years behind in the start of a massive worldwide effort to completely replace the burning of all fossil fuels with cost-competitive, non-fossil, low-carbon sources of energy; such as MOLTEN SALT REACTORS, which can't explode or melt down, are walk-away safe, are weapons unfriendly, produce almost no waste, will consume spent fuel from today's power plants, and will also run on Thorium, a dirt-cheap element which is a waste product of the rare earth mining industry!  To avoid the collapse of civilization and the death of most life on Earth, we must begin this massive effort and shift NOW.

Dr. James Hansen of Earth Institute at Columbia University, the most widely acclaimed climate scientist in the US and a friend of Bill McKibben, is strongly in favor of modern nuclear fission plants as a major weapon in the fight against the fossil fuel companies and our global climate crisis. See his excellent book, “Storms Of My Grandchildren.”

If we “do the numbers” it becomes clear that civilization is very unlikely to survive without also deploying safe, clean, carbon-free, energy from Molten Salt Reactors (Fourth Generation Nuclear Fission; power cheaper than from coal!).

Former aerospace mechanical engineer now working to promote the rapid development of MOLTEN SALT REACTORS, "the other kind of nuclear fission" which is safe, weapons unfriendly, produces very small amounts of (short-lived, much less dangerous) waste, and
