The Nuclear Renaissance
Massive Discovery in Idaho... and it's NOT Oil
Well, it’s the fourth of July — a time to celebrate our nation’s freedom and independence.
And what better way to do that than to share with you, dear reader, the next phase of American energy independence?
This time, it has nothing to do with oil, gas, or any fossil fuels, for that matter. But more on that in a moment...
First, consider this quote:
“An incident of that gravity could not happen in Italy.”
These words came from the former Italian Nuclear Energy Chief Umberto Colombo just days after the disaster at Chernobyl on April 26, 1986. He said this while standing only 40 miles away from an Italian nuclear station with a similar design to the Chernobyl plant.
Luckily for him and the rest of Italy, the nation never experienced a disaster quite like Chernobyl. Unfortunately for the Japanese who lived near the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, their nation did.
It caused the mass evacuation of about 300,000 people — the population of the city of St. Louis — to avoid radiation poisoning from the preventable meltdown.
The key word here is preventable. That’s right; these tragedies of the nuclear age — the age of uranium — were entirely preventable.
Had the architects of Chernobyl properly managed the nuclear facility, and had the designers of the battery backup systems at Fukushima foreseen large-scale blackouts, these disasters could’ve been avoided entirely.
It’s a shame, too, because nuclear energy is incredibly efficient. Zero carbon emissions means zero complaints from environmentalists. It also means a vast amount of energy capable of powering thousands of homes without fail, unlike solar and wind power.
Check out this chart...
Nuclear power clearly trumps all other fuels including coal and natural gas when it comes to energy creation in terms of megajoules per kilogram.
If it weren’t for the safety issues surrounding uranium, there would be nothing stopping nuclear energy from becoming the world's future power supply.
But what if we didn’t need uranium?
What if there was another way to use nuclear reactors to develop the same powerful energy?
In truth, we really don’t need uranium...
There is another way to generate the same (if not more) power using a much safer and much more abundant resource...
This resource works in a similar reactor but generates 200 times more power, and it is much more abundant.
It’s not plutonium or hydrogen... It’s thorium, named for the Norse god of thunder, Thor.
And according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the authority on nuclear power, “Thorium fuel has better thermal and physical properties as well as irradiation performance than uranium fuel.”
Not to mention it’s safer. The IAEA said in the same report: “The melting point of thorium dioxide is 500 degrees Celsius higher than that of uranium dioxide. This difference provides an added margin of safety in the event of a temporary power surge or loss of coolant in a reactor.”
Clearly if there were a way to develop reactors that could produce electricity from the much safer thorium, we could utilize cheap, safe, and abundant energy without causing environmental catastrophes and meltdowns like Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima.
The “Wonder Vein”
As I mentioned earlier this week, you and I are in luck.
My colleague Christian DeHaemer just recently discovered a company that holds the sole rights to the technology capable of harnessing thorium in a nuclear reactor.
Not only that, but he also released a report on a huge discovery of thorium right here in the U.S.A.
One of the largest deposits of thorium in the world has been discovered under the Lemhi Pass in Idaho.
The state once known for its potatoes will soon be a world leader in thorium production, kicking off the next phase of American energy independence.
That yellow plot pictured above is actually acres upon acres of thorium-rich land ready to be harvested and put to work in the reactors exclusively built by the company Chris found.
What better occasion than Independence Day to divulge my colleague’s incredible find to you?
Chris's special report will tell you all about the $3 company with the only technology capable of harnessing thorium in a nuclear reactor and how it will kick off the next wave of energy independence (and millionaires).
Hurry, though — this groundbreaking player won’t stay a secret for long.
In the meantime, happy Fourth of July.
