In his talk, Rusty discusses the availability of energy as the critical ingredient for raising the standard of living around the world, providing a crash course in understanding how Thorium, found in the dirt we walk on every day, might be humanity’s final energy solution.

From an early age, Rusty Towell was curious about how things worked. That curiosity led him to earn a degree in Engineering Physics, serve in the U.S. Navy as an instructor at the Naval Nuclear Power School, return to school for a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics, and work for over 25 years with “atom smashers” at national laboratories around the country.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
