To Whom it may concern,
Increased productivity through UNLIMITED CLEAN ENERGY should be the number one goal, no matter what. The quickest way is through the liquid fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) as proven at ORNL 50 years ago to be a promising alternative.
No need for energy stalemates and fossil fueled depletion which threaten maintaining cutting edge defense capabilities.
Preventing excess CO2 and ocean acidification by seriously reducing carbon emissions is critical, if we are to prevent the next oceanic anoxic event.
Physicists suggest that the ONE MILLION times concentration of energy from nuclear is the easiest and quickest way to convert over from hydrocarbons, HOWEVER, not any nuclear is suitable for widespread global use, especially, today’s inherently dangerous light water reactors.
A much better reactor design uses a molten mix which prevent any chances of meltdown or hydrogen explosions, which burns the fuel efficiently, who’s fuel does not need enrichment, and which can actually burn spent waste. Therefore, less waste is created from LFTR even as the living standards of BILLIONS of people can be brought up to decent standards.
Everything else is just trivial in comparison except for the increased economic productivity that results from unlimited, (almost) clean electricity and its conversion to liquid fuels and or batteries.
Thank you for your consideration.
