Thorium Nuclear Power and Non-proliferation

Abstract

This conference on the use of thorium in nuclear power generation is most welcome. The aim is not to downgrade uranium, which has served the world well and long dominated our thinking. It has been the feed of the nuclear work horses for the last 50 years. Enormous experience has been accumulated, and it has helped us to refine the technology and also to gradually develop a nuclear safety culture.
