Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR) energy

It was mentioned below by wpsmithjr, but I thought it needed an explicit post. This is a technology that we should be very interested in because it is unequivocally better than the nuclear energy we currently use. It's a technology that has been suppressed by our government for purely political reasons. Apparently, the Chinese are interested in it and are planning on building these types of reactors. We are going to be left in the dust by nations using technology that we invented 50 years ago- that makes me mad.

It's a long video but worth the watch;
