Thorium reactors could be just about the perfect answer, or as near as one can expect. Inherantly safe, produce little waste, fuel widely available for centuries to come and the Indians seem to have cracked any remaining technical problems remaining with them. Overcome the ignorance factor (they're still nuclear) and we'll be there. Many still won't forsake their green religion though, because religion is about faith, not reality.

It's abundant, it's cheap, and it's found just about everywhere...

It accounts for about 40% of the planet's electricity usage -- more than natural gas, nuclear, wind, solar and geothermal combined.

It's the world's most preferred fuel for electricity generation, and people hate it... Even children don't like it. They're told if they misbehave, they could find a "lump of this" on Christmas morning.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm talking about coal. But before you tell me how the black rocks are the biggest threat to the planet since the last great meteor strike, hear me out.
