I missed this sentence yesterday, but read it and did a little "YouTube Research" after church this morning.
All I can say is wow. LFTR is the real deal.
Before I speculate, I research. My research shows me that there will not be much money to made in this realm. The technology will probably easy with no barrier to entry. The great news is that the resulting electricity will be cheap and available enough that poorer countries and areas will have access. The picture that keeps going through my mind is of people not having to use wood, charcoal, and dung for cooking and heating. Maybe an inexpensive byproduct would be desalination? How amazing would that be for those without access to clean water? How much ill health could be brought to bay with clean energy and clean water?
