Thanks, Doug and Shima.  Now that I have heard more of the radio broadcast,
the guest appears to be genuinely interested in encouraging the use of the
Thorium reactor as being safer and cheaper than the current Uranium fueled
boiling water reactor. 

To Listen - go to www.kgoradio.com then to Listen - then Hourly Archives -
Tuesday 8-9PM - this will be available for one week

The commentary begins 8 minutes and 30 seconds in - you can slide the slider
and skip the 8PM news  -  Pat starts out with having seen an article about
China's supposedly going to build safer cheaper reactors based on Thorium
and then she introduces her guest Kirk Thorenson - www.energyfromthorium.com
- he sounds pretty sound - comments about Thorium fuel reactors - I had been
turned off turned off later into his discussion when he said something about
defense contractors having killed the thorium reactor - the beginning,
though, sounds pretty good and I hope that this stimulates some interesting
