Thorium Plasma Battery Can Power Most Any Car, Truck, Train, Or Boat For 10+ Years Without A Recharge

When we think of EVs (electric vehicles) we usually think of super lightweight tiny one or two passenger cars like we see on the homepage of this forum. In reality however, a somewhat new but suppressed battery technology can change how we think in a hurry. Below is an article from Energy Consultant B.D. McBride that will make you think twice about many things. Although he starts out talking about the Fukishima tragedy, he changes gears to reveal things the U.S. government does not want us to know - about green energy and solutions that have been available to us for years, but have been hidden from us. Anyway, this may make your blood boil so prepare yourself...
"After the Fukishima fiasco many nuclear scientists were quietly asking each other why we continue to use dangerous and obsolete nuclear reactors fueled by uranium when they can be retrofitted to use safer, cheaper, and more powerful Thorium, the only green nuclear fuel which is virtually impossible to have a meltdown or other catastrophic failure. After all, Thorium is not only more abundant, much cheaper to acquire and process, but also yields a 20 to 1 energy yield advantage over uranium. Better still, Thorium cannot be used to make nuclear weaponry so every country on Earth (even Iran and other nations hostile towards the West) could enjoy a nuclear energy option. According to the EPA and CDC, common coal dust is three times more dangerous to people than Thorium. And Thorium nuclear waste is one tenth the volume of uranium nuclear waste. Frankly I cannot find a downside to Thorium. China, Norway, and India have already made the switch to Thorium, but in the West the technology is being conveniently ignored. Why?
Worst still is what has been happening in the nuclear battery development arena. In 1996-1998, Dr. Shimoda (Osaka University of Technology), Dr. Khanna (Harvard), Dr. Eugene Mallove (MIT) and Dr. Aries M. DeGeus introduced the world to the realities of MHD physics and plasma powered energy - the same energy we see in lightning bolts during a thunderstorm. They put forth solid theories that even the U.S. DoE embraced and subsequently sponsored over $40 million of research that resulted in the publication of 5 white papers that were once posted on the internet between 1997-2008, but which all then mysteriously vanished in 2010 without explanation.
Further, at least three, and possibly as many as five inventors including Russian Dimitri Petronov, and Americans Aries DeGeus, Dr. Mallove, and "Daniel" produced working prototypes of a Thorium plasma battery that was demonstrated to dozens of people, and unfortunately both the American, and Russian militaries. With zero emissions, these batteries were scalable and could put out consistent voltage with less than .0002 fluctuation, and could be regulated with an AC/DC converter. They could theoretically put out reliable energy without fission for their entire half-life. In the case of the Thorium 232 isotope, the battery could operate for over a hundred years. The three known prototypes powered an electric scooter, a two bedroom home, and a small four passenger car for over a year without a single recharge. Then word got out.
Since then, two of these inventors were murdered and two others disappeared and nobody knows what happened to the prototypes. Then the Pentagon invoked “National Security” and issued a gag order to the only surviving inventor who has since gone underground. Information at the DoE about Thorium and other nuclear batteries vanished just like related details at over a dozen other links like these were also removed:
No, I am not a conspiracy nut. I am a cum laude graduate of Purdue University. Stop laughing and read these links:
Valuable technology which can eliminate coal plants, global warming, and wean the world off fossil fuels is being suppressed by the western governments and their oil industry/national defense puppet masters my friends. Use of a Thorium plasma battery in 50 million American cars would eliminate over $850 million USD every single day in fuel tax revenues at the state and federal levels in America. That income represents about 40% of America's operating capital.
Now since these batteries are scalable, imagine the one the size of about 500 square meters is plugged into a power grid and supplies clean, green electricity to a city of 2 million residents. Even more government revenues are denied. But the technology suppression is not only based on economics, but apparently national security according to this link:
If plasma battery technology is good enough for the U.S. Navy and NASA, it should be good enough for every citizen whose taxes pay for both of those government agencies to operate! If the batteries are good enough to power an electric tank, they should be good enough to power every family's car. This suppression reminds me of the old Canadian Avro jet fighter plane the U.S. Defense Department demanded be destroyed in the 1950s. Clearly these batteries are certainly not in the best interests of the $600 Billion oil industry.
How much do you think it costs to bribe,.... er,.... sorry, "lobby" every member of the House and Senate? My wife who is an accomplished lawyer and former U.S. Assistant Attorney, thinks this technology suppression is a classic textbook case of "racketeering" and "organized crime". She directed my attention to this link:
This is one time I actually agree with my wife!
