dc.description.abstract <p>This proposal provides policy guidance on how the federal government would generate Thorium-based nuclear policy. This is necessary to answer the growing threat presented by energy dependence, lack of energy innovation in the nuclear sector, and climate change. Through providing two feasible policy options, and crafting a strong argument for both, this proposal concludes that a prototype Thorium nuclear reactor is the best option for the federal government to pursue to combat energy dependence, lack of energy innovation in the nuclear sector, and climate change. As such, these findings determine that through partnership with local governments, the United States as a whole can leap to the forefront of nuclear technology once again and lead the global nuclear community.</p>
