While our ethical traditions know how to deal with homicide and even genocide these traditions collapse entirely when confronted with ecocide and biocide. Today we live in an ethically confusing and contradictory world, a world in which sentiment and brutality exist side by side. At the same time as modern thinkers seek to extend the circle of moral consideration to other animals, humanity inflicts more suffering on more creatures than at any time in history.

Is this really what we want to do to creation…to drive it to extinction? But extinction is irreversible. Species that go extinct are lost forever. This is not Jurassic Park – we can’t bring them back! Over the last century we’ve participated in something of a binge of unbelievable prosperity. We may have had some intuition that it was a binge and the earth couldn’t support it but aside from the easy things, biodegradable detergent or slightly smaller cars, we haven’t done very much. We haven’t turned our lives around.

How we’ve reached this nadir is just one theme explored in All Things Are Connected, a film that takes us back to our beginning and investigates how both religion and science have carelessly misinterpreted an ancient injunction to have dominion over creation, as a license to dominate at any cost.

The making of the film therefore is an aesthetic response to the fact that we have soiled a great work of art and taken a hammer to the most perfectly proportioned of sculptures, and, it’s only us who can begin to put the pieces back together.

Thorium is readily available & can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium’s capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today’s energy/climate crisis. LFTR is a type of Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). This video summarizes over 6 hours worth of thorium talks given by Kirk Sorensen and other thorium technologists.

    Flourine is extremely toxic.
    COMBUSTION. WATER & FLUORINE REACT TO PRODUCE HYDROFLUORIC ACID.
    OXIDIZING/REDUCING AGENTS, METALS, MOST ORGANIC/INORGANIC
    FLUORINE-SKIN: IRRITATION, ACID-LIKE BURNS, TISSUE DESTRUCTION.
    EYES: ACID-LIKE BURNS. INHALATION: IRRITATION OF LUNGS/ NASAL
    PASSAGES, ACID-LIKE BURNS TO MUCOUS MEMBRANES OF LUNGS & NOSE,
    ABNORMAL FLUID BUILD UP IN LUNGS WHICH MAY BE FATAL. HIGHLY
    CORROSIVE TO LIVING TISSUE. CONCENTRATIONS >25 PPM MAY BE FATAL

  • WOW! This was an “I got it” moment Kirk…thank you so much! You are an amazing guy with MASSIVE determination…and thanks for that too!
    I’m a “synergy design consultant” from Marin County, CA(with a degree in wholstic health/synergy–1980)…living in Asia for 20 years. With the US gov. still dragging their collective feet on thorium after 49 years…maybe the best thing you could do to foster global thorium reactor production… would be to come to Asia and assist in building them?!?!?!
    I’d love to help you in any way that I could. Please contact me if you’d like to discuss possibilities.

    Hmmm

    Westinghouse corporation built 2 fully functional thorium power plants in the 70′s Carter under immense pressure from oil/gas/coal and defense industries outlawed all thorium reactors. One of the reasons given was that they represented a threat to US National security because you cannot manufacture fissionable material from thorium reactors!c The technology costs a fraction of conventional reactors and has in relative terms none of the problems of disposal of spent fuel. In short was the answer to US dependence on foreign fossil fuels. It was not to be because literally trillions of dollars would have been lost by………….the oil/gas/coal/defense industries! It was all about the security the people and the Nation taking a back seat to profits fof the 1/10 of 1%. And yes in essence it really was that simple. The American people were sold out.
