Submission + - LFTR in 5 Minutes or, Why aren't we using Thorium for nuclear power? (youtube.com) 2

Lorien_the_first_one writes: Seems that this video is going viral. The video points out all the advantages of Thorium as nuclear fuel over Uranium: lower cost, the reactor shuts itself down when damage occurs, the waste is much easier to handle and contain, and Thorium is far more abundant than Uranium. So why aren't we using Thorium for nuclear power instead of Uranium?
