HEMP people!!
Hemp grows in any climate, and their seeds are full of protein!
.
it's becoming clear that these governments are more interested in profit than they are people.

Without the people there is no profit. Try again.

Might I suggest to OXFAM that they start STRONGLY promoting Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTRs) as a way to provide energy and water, and to help stabilize whatever climate change may be driven by CO2. In this way, farmland can once again be used for food rather than for low efficiency biofuel production. What could be a better fit?

Wind and solar energy.

Wind and solar are much more expensive and dangerous that LFTRs. LFTRs can be the Lean, Clean, Green energy source of the future.

It is too bad we can't edit our posts cuz I would have added that LFTRs are a whole lot more reliable too.

If they were so great, why didn't they become the way for commercial or Navy purposes?

The thorium cycle breeds U233 as its fissile but for a number of reasons, that stuff is not very good for bombs. As a result, most early work (bomb making) was with solid fuel U235 and Pu239. So when the time came to make Navy reactors, that is what they used. And the first commercial reactor was just a scaled up Navy reactor. So the stage was set. Nuclear energy meant mechanical engineering.

Then, when Weinberg at ORNL was working on the MSBR (Molten Salt BREEDER Reactor) which was a slow breeder, CHEMIST'S reactor, it looked to be TOO slow a breeder to allow the kind of expansion the AEC thought would be needed while the LMFBR was thought to be able. So Nixon's whitehouse killed the MSBR. Then came the nuclear hiatus and then it was now. Ok?
