The History of Thorium
The purpose of energy companies is to maximize profits which means providing energy that is as expensive as practical. Environmental and safety consequences do not matter. Consequently, there is no demand for fuel cycles based on on fuels in plentiful supply like thorium which have a fuel cycle that does not leave byproducts that contaminate the planet for tens of thousands of years.
