Bonus baby!

I got my bonus today. Unbelievable!

Thanks go out to Dr. Phil Jones and the East Anglia U. Hockey Team for making my carbon-phobic billing rate possible. Despite my vested interest in continuing global warming hysteria, I remain a skeptic and a denier.

KA-CHING!

It's textbook stuff as far a I know. I didn't realize anyone was trying to make practical use of thorium. I do think the article is overly rosy - I don't believe the no waste statements.

Well, a little hot here, a little hot there...

I still want a used rod as a whole-house heatsource/water heater.

I haven't checked my "Chart of the Nuclides" lately, but I have my doubts that Thorium is substantially more green than Uranium. Activation products are activation products and fission products are fission products.

Not that I consider any of that a REAL problem.
