#1 Mr. Bill Gates...the guy that built his house on outsourcing tech jobs is now planning the same for energy.

#2  guojin mintui translates something like “while the state advances, the privates retreat.”.

They will take what they need from Gates and do it themselves. Uranium is just about to explode in value. We have been getting Uranium dirt cheap for years now from Russia but that has just stopped. One who posts here who cannot be named, no, I just forgot who it was. Has really been interested in Thorium power. We dropped the ball and I understand India has gone on and developed a system themselves. Much better system from the looks of it.

#3 Gates is wrong headed on this. No one should support or advocate uranium based power. Thorium is so much less bad, we need innovation there. Not in uranium.

Uranium power inevitably produces Plutonium. Plutonium is properly named for the God of the Dead. Plutonium results in death. It is poisonous, radioactive, and suitable for nuclear weapons. Just about the worst trifecta in the history of man.

It is in the long term survival of the human project that we step away from uranium based power. It cannot happen today, but needs to happen over the longer term.
