I followed the links and

I followed the links and looked at some of the stuff beneath them.

It looks like the output of a high school kid with good graphics skills. There doesn't seem to be any real physics behind the design of the alleged car-sized, safe, mobile, three-digit-kilowatt, thorium reactor.

Yes, like uranium, thorium has a lot of energy in it, so a few grams can produce enough energy to run a car for a century. Yes, it can be built into a critical mass and sustain a nuclear fission reaction. But those two don't connect to form a practical replacement for an automobile engine. They also apply to uranium and plutonium.

I don't see anything behind that web site that would tell us someone has figured out how to build a car-engine size power plant to run on any of them, in lieu of a giant, shielded, central power station big enough to work with an adequate mass of fuel to sustain a fission chain reaction.

Maybe somebody has. But, if so, that web site and its links don't tell us about it.

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
