Don't blame me if you want specifics, take it up with NASA!

There was a segment on NPR about the correlation between a strong economy and increasing greenhouse gases and how terrible the last ten years of economic recovery has been for the environment.

Here is hoping for a greater depression?

My browsing history shows cat videos as far back as I can see, but YouTube suggested some TED talks about thorium. Someone commented that India already has thorium reactors. I found this: https://neutronbytes.com/2018/04/06/...by-two-thirds/
They are working on Thorium fueled reactors. Most of the work is on using the Thorium Cycle in current nuclear power stations as this is feasible now. A nuclear power plant tailored to use Thorium is in the pipeline. India is uniquely positioned as, though poor in uranium reserves, it has a large chunk of proven thorium reserves. This is paralleled by China. To keep their economic growths, both societies must turn to nuclear power or increase their use of coal. However, both countries have large land masses that can site renewable farms as well as placement of diffuse arrays. This results in a reduction of power plant needs, though they cannot be avoided altogether.
