NPR: Is Thorium A Magic Bullet For Our Energy Problems?

I am huge fan of Thorium reactors as alternative to Uranium reactors because I believe they're safer.  Here is a great podcast from NPR on the subject called: Is Thorium A Magic Bullet For Our Energy Problems? Here is excerpt from the article: "As the search for cheap, safe and non-carbon emitting sources of energy continues, a band of scientists say the answer may be nuclear reactors fueled by thorium. Others caution that thorium reactors pose waste and proliferation risks. Ira Flatow and guests discuss the pros and cons of thorium reactors." (read the rest of the article or listen to the audio)
