Thorium poised to meet world’s energy needs

At a forum held today at the National Press Club, a group of leading nuclear scientists examined the potential of thorium, a substance similar to uranium but environmentally safer and more plentiful, which could help meet the entire world’s growing energy needs.


“A tremendous growth in energy supply will be needed to even come close to meeting future energy demands,” said keynote speaker Dr. Sterling Bailey. “Hundreds of new facilities per year will be needed.” Dr. Bailey added that each currently known alternative “green” energy source has its niche, but overall cannot significantly impact energy demand.
