What books have you read that have helped you grow or wake up ?
Theres a thread where you'll find plenty: http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/suggestions-for-a-good-read.13479/I'm not into fiction books. I prefer non fiction but only true crime or conspiracy theory type books.
Same here - only I read it 40-some years ago.I read a book over 30 years ago called How To Lie With Statistics. Changed how I thought about things. ...
There is so much Thorium lying about as a waste by-product of the nuclear fuel industry.'Superfuel' By Richard Martin.
Made me ask the question 'If Uranium is so difficult to use, why doesn't the world use the plentiful Thorium to fuel it's nuclear power stations' ?
And the only answer is ...
Because you can't make bombs from Thorium.
I guess when Uranium finally becomes scarce (even more so than now), we may eventually use Thorium.My point is that we are still building nuclear power stations (But very few) and they use Uranium. Only a small amount of Thorium experimental power stations are being built.
If you get chance, read the book and the reason I mentioned is all the more obvious.
