More on thorium, the "cleaner" nuclear fuel
Gordon McDowell of Calgary sent us an update on Kirk Sorenson and his mission to convince people that thorium can provide a clean nuclear fuel.
This follows an extensive discussion in Your Dispatches since we interviewed Mr. Sorenson.
Rick MacInnes-Rae & CBC folk,
I missed the original airing of Kirk Sorensen's interview with Rick.about thorium -- I believe it might have been...when he came to Calgary to speak at TEDxYYC.
I was shooting Kirk at TEDxYYC, and also shot Kirk at 2 other speaking venues in Calgary.
This footage has been combined with interviews and presentations given in Washington DC, as sort of a poor-man's "Inconvenient Truth" on the subject. The doc is called THORIUM REMIX 2011.
I hope you'll take 5 minutes to watch the opening summary. The doc is free on YouTube.
