This not so entertaining video actually shows one of the most promising solution to the energy crisis.

The TerraPower Traveling Wave Reactor is mainly interesting for two reasons. One is that it emits no CO2 while in operation. Second is that it actually uses up the nuclear garbage of classic reactors. Imagine getting all that nuclear energy without getting stuck with the waste! Now that's something to look forward to!

I must admit that it's Bill Gates who's backing and promoting this project. But if he can actually help make this work, I will forgive him for the many lost weeks/months, bad moods and huge amounts of cursing I had due to Microsoft products. :-)
