Posting about it again. The Energy From Thorium forum has more on what’s going on. Some bogus weapons reasons are presented to the press for why it will be downblended. It could be the startup fuel of new LFTRs instead.
This is the equivalent to the move to have streetcar tracks ripped up in so many cities – it’s destruction of a competitive threat by driving the price of market entry too high to overcome.
It has zero to do with weapons potential that’s just a bone tossed to the press.
