TED talks is a source of inspiration and, as the slogan says, ‘ideas worth spreading’. Thorium and its potential as an energy source has been featured several times.
The first TED talk on Thorium was by Flibe Energy CEO Kirk Sorensen in April 2011. This is still the most popular Thorium talk today based on total views exceeding 600.000. Kirk Sorensen believes Thorium will revolutionize how we produce our energy. During his talk, he shows how the liquid fuel thorium reactor can produce energy that is safer, cleaner and more efficient than current nuclear power.
Another TED talk by Kirk Sorensen was filmed in the beginning of this year.
Thorium Can Give Humanity Clean, Pollution Free Energy
How Thorium Can Save The World
In the beginning of 2013, Salim Zwein held a talk at TEDxBeirut on how Thorium is a cheap, efficient, clean and abundant energy source with the capacity to replace Uranium as a nuclear fuel, and turn the nuclear industry into a safe, environmental alternative.
L'énergie du thorium, l'avenir vert du nucléaire?
At TEDx Paris in December 2013, Jean-Christophe de Mestral, a Swiss physicist, talks about what could be an energy revolution: nuclear energy from thorium. Aware of the technological and economic challenges of Thorium Energy, he is committed to ensure that all industry players have complete information for a real debate on nuclear power.
Thorium To Light Up The World
In the end of 2014, Srikumar Banerjee, a former Director of Babha Atomic Reasearch Centre (BARC) spoke at TEDx at CERN, Geneva. In his speech, Srikumar Banerjee presents the advantages of thorium as a cleaner and more sustainable energy source.
Why Making Energy From Dirt Might Save The World
The most recent TED talk on Thorium was by Rusty Towell at TEDxACU in May this year. In his talk, Rusty discusses the availability of energy as the critical ingredient for raising the standard of living around the world, providing a crash course in understanding how Thorium, found in the dirt we walk on every day, might be humanity’s final energy solution.
