Thorium fission essentially is uranium fission. The thorium absorbs neutrons, and decays into uranium. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium_fuel_cycle

Thom:

I know you have read George Lakoff - you defended using 'Obamacare' in place of The Affordable Care Act to a listener on your radio show today by arguing that many listening would not know the reference if you said 'The Affordable Care Act'. How are they going to learn (and maybe even read) the legislation if you continue to use the radical right's pejorative. If you use the other guy's frame, as Professor Lakoff says, you have already lost the argument. You are a brilliant person, so I know you can find another way to communicate to your listeners the benefits of this historic legislation (yes, and it has no public option --- yet!)

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
