Thorium a green alternative energy source

Thorium supposedly is a better choice than Uranium-based reactors since it's more environment friendly, plus a whole lot more benefits. However since Uranium had more military benefits, Thorium got canned. Read this link here . Stumbled on it today and I find it interesting although the article seem...

Re: Green electricity > natural gas

Yeah I read methane is even more dangerous than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. Claimed also to be one of the main component for the end of the last ice age.

Re: Twitchy eye.

So glad to find out it's not just me. This happens to me too, the why I don't know. Even if I'm not tired or stressed, I've experienced it. Plus it's not just my eye. Sometimes there's twitching on other spots of my body. I look at it but nothing... it's not moving, throbbing, twitching. Is this nor...

Re: Tomato wine?

I've not yet tried tomato wine, the canned juice perhaps, but not wine. I regularly drink tomato juice but in a mix. Quite intrigued to how tomato wine will taste. I've tried coconut wine served by locals during my last vacation and the taste and smell was really something I couldn't quite handle.

Re: waterless urinal

Re: Does anybody else do this?

I've tried that what phil55494 suggests. The leaves, peeled back, do make a great holder. Have you guys tried without the leaves and put em on a BBQ? Put a stick into the the corn too, like you do with a BBQ. I like the taste better when it's grilled. :icon_smile:

Re: Grey water

Can grey water at least be "cleaned up" a bit, like through filtration or some other process so it can be used for flushing toilets or urinals and not get the porcelain dirty or smelly?
