Mountain View, CA, March 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Understanding the Impact Thorium Will Have On The Energy Economy
To know the future of energy, you must gain an understanding of rapidly growing movement to implement Thorium as a major component of the energy economy.
ThoriumEnergyAlliance.com presents the second Thorium Energy Conference March 29th and 30th at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA
(Presenters will also be available Sunday, March 28th for interviews and questions, please contact us for an appointment.)
You can Join the Thorium Energy Alliance and attend the conference on March 29th and 30th to gain first-hand knowledge of the latest developments in the Thorium energy future.
As recently reported in the Wired, Chemical and Engineering News, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and Times of London, the potential of generating electricity from thorium resolves issues of concern raised by nuclear power.
Listing Why we should use Thorium:
You cannot use Thorium to make Nuclear Weapons - it is non-proliferating.
There is 4 times as much Thorium on the planet as Uranium.
The United States has 1000 years worth of Thorium.
Thorium energy generation will recycle and eliminate nuclear waste.
The U.S. has built Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors before.
A Thorium generator, such as a LiFTeR type, can be developed in a few years.
Thorium creates less than 1% of the waste of Uranium Power.
A Thorium power plant needs no pressure vessel or containment building.
The cost per Megawatt would be less than 2 million dollars.
United States Congressman Joe Sestak (PA-7) as well as Orin Hatch and Harry Reid have all submitted bills to congress to credit funding to complete the research and development of the Thorium Fuel cycle. $500 million has been requested to finalize designs.
Several new publicly traded businesses have started up in that past few years to take advantage of the new Thorium Energy economy that is rapidly emerging.
As a result of so much activity in the rising field of Thorium energy production it was decided that a professional organization had to be created to help answer the demand for information regarding this topic. In spring of 2009 The Thorium Energy Alliance, a pending 501(c)3 educational organization, was organized. A founding member of the Alliance, John Kutsch said "Thorium is the future of energy, we knew this 50 years ago and now we must make it a reality today."
The Thorium Energy Alliance (T.E.A.) educates our leaders with round table discussions, provides them with expert witnesses, white papers, and demonstrates the technology and it's uses. TEA provides staff with executive summaries and talking points supporting the Thorium technologies.
TEA engages the public through all media channels. Tea provides the public with experts to appear on radio and television. TEA will provide subjects for interviews for all media.
TEA is creating scholarships to encourage engineers to learn about Thorium
TEA is producing Text books, and learning materials for College engineering courses
TEA generates media including, Webcasts, Pod Casts, Videos, pamphlets, books and articles.
TEA creates highly targeted ad campaigns in print media, video, targeted mail.
TEA tracks the milestones in the creation of a Thorium Economy.
