154. Another benefit to Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor: 1000 year supply of fuel
Versus about 55 years of Uranium left.

A related benefit to LFTR is that every nation on Earth has Thorium but there are only a few nations with Uranium mines. If your nation runs off of Thorium reactors you cannot be threatened with your fuel supply being cut off. It's everywhere -- even in sea water.
