Since Chernobyl in 1984, every operating nuclear power plant has needed insurance of 40 billion: rising to 100 billion 2010 in Fukishima.
So no academic could legally do research work for nuclear power – and all the papers on Global Warming were funded by nuclear power.
Apparently unaware their plant building program made them the 4th biggest source of CO2 on Earth. No problem, as plant convert extra CO2 back into active life, via photosynthesis on land and in the seas. CO2 pegged at a pre-industrial 2 parts per million.
So Global Warming and man-made Climate Change just fictional nuclear PR.
So Oak Ridge and other government funded nuclear research centres could no longer do research on uranium fission – which in cludes Thorium and plutonium research.
So Thorium research ILLEGAL since 1984. All fast breeder nuclear plants illegal outside of France and India.
Oak Ridge has been criminal for 33 years. No government funding legal.
