His explanation is pretty much mind blowing. Thorium as a nuclear energy source is plentiful and safe but non weaponizable. Can't use it on nuclear bombs so the limits of its militarization goes only as far as nuclear powered vehicles (CVs, subs, etc,.)

China's success will hugely benefit the world. In conclusion, for thorium to finally actually happen there had to be a confluence of a number of different things:

- Increasingly expensive fossil fuels
- Dwindling fossil fuel reserves
- Damaging high levels of pollution by fossil fuels making continuing with their dominance in the long term unacceptable
- The emergence and existence of a state possessing the political will to make it become a reality, and a state whose power elites are not beholden to particular interest groups.
- The breakthrough in the development of highly resistant to corrosion materials

China is the only nation state that possesses the confluence of the political will, the technological capability, and the financial wherewithal to invest in the development of thorium based nuclear power. Its motivation is based on a clear realization of the potentially highly adverse effects of climate change, on the deleterious effects of pollution due to coal, on ensuring thorough energy security in such a way as not depending on foreign sources for natural gas, and because it possess sufficient reserves of thorium to last it thousands of years even at 10 times its total present consumption rates.

A new technology company in Ningxia converts CO emission into ethanol and animal feed protein.
Ningxia must have progressed a lot nowadays. I remember a lady from Ningxia told me years ago that Ningxia was a really bad place to live as it was very dusty and backward. Things must have changed for the better.
