DELAWARE, Ohio – An Ohio organization pushing for energy independence embraces the powers of the state under the Tenth Amendment as an important part of its plan.
“The most fascinating and practical of all these energy technologies are LFTR reactors. LFTR reactors use the plentiful and cheap Thorium element in an inherently safe type of nuclear reactor that was developed in the late 1960s. It is a safe and proven technology that countries like China and India are racing to commercialize,” Coalition of Freedom president Jim Flaugher said.
But he says development of Thorium energy technology faces a huge hurdle. Federal regulations make Thorium based energy solutions difficult to develop.
“Energy policy and initiatives that originate from the federal government, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) have had a near disastrous effect on our country’s energy future. The seemingly endless unconstitutional federal mandates have severely restricted our country’s ability to produce and provide our own energy needs.”Details
