Thorium reactors recycle their own waste, resulting in a significantly smaller volume of dangerous waste products that need to be stored.

Yeah, sorry I accepted the debate in the early hours of the morning not realising the time constraint until I had already accepted.

Hopefully in the future I am going to make a debate just like this but longer.

Added:

A number of thorium reactors have been built since 1960, starting with the thorium-based nuclear reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and a few research reactors are in operation today. Today, thorium is seen by some as a thousand year solution to energy and environmental problems, but one that is offset by high start-up costs and a number of technical hurdles.

Please do not vote for this, this was made for fun. I didn’t have time

Added:

I mean the one issue isn't for the one embracing it as much as enemies of that nation-state.
