On my trip to the future, I saw big towns called thorium towns. When I took a closer look, I found that a radioactive material called Thorium powered the towns. In the future, we no longer use fossil fuel to power our cities we use thorium. The first steps we need to take to make this a reality is to better educate people that nuclear energy isn't always a bad thing. Thorium is a metal found in the earths crust and is as common as led. So why not thorium?
