Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another cool feature of molten salt reactors with dissolved fuel is that in an emergency you can dump all the liqiud fuel/moderator/cooling medium via gravity into a bunch of small tanks in the basement, each which is small enough to make a self-sustained nuclear reaction physically impossible. Very elegant.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
