Molten Salt – Lyric VideoFrom the album "Bright Future", out now:
Molten Salt Reactors are a potentially game-changing energy and heat-generating technology, significantly safer than current Light Water Reactor nuclear power, which itself is already way safer – both for human health and climate change – than fossil fuel-generated electricity.
Cheap, safe, unlimited energy, let's make it happen!
