Where cold fusion really shines: Thorium production

So as we have seen, cold fusion doesn't produce excess energy.  Creating neutrons from electrons takes a lot of potential energy, and really the best we can hope for is to get our electrons back.  If we could break even in energy usage we would be very very happy (and could make gold from iron for free).  

Well then how does this help us on our quest for better energy for all?  Well since we can make heavier elements we can make elements that are typical nuclear fuel.  

So lets take thorium for example.  Thorium is produced probably from Rubidium.  Thorium is 4 spaces to the right of rubidium and 3 spaces down just like gold is to iron.  I believe this is the standard difference that usually can produce a new element.

Things that support this notion is that rubidium is found in high concentrations of seawater and thorium is insoluble in water.  Thorium is found in high concentrations on the sea floor.  So it could easily be that rubidium is converted into thorium on the surface of the ocean by light and probably the reducing action of phytoplankton and it falls to the bottom of the ocean.  

In order to figure out exactly how to replicate this we should study the electron transport chain of phytoplankton and figure out the intercellular reducing compounds that the creature makes.  Also we should see where exactly rubidium would fall into that metabolic chain knowing that rubidium would be analogous to potassium so it would be found inside cells.  So we want to find reducing compounds found inside  phytoplankton cells.  When we know this we can use those compounds to convert rubidium to thorium without the cells --or we could farm phytoplankton and feed them extra (below 50% of potassium) rubidium and collect the sediment on the bottom of the tank.--

Anyway after we have thorium the next step is to make it into material that can provide us cheap power.  I believe up to 12% uranium 233 is allowed to be in thorium legally.  This should be plenty for us for small scale power.  We convert the thorium to uranium 233 by including thorium in the process we did earlier where iron was converted into gold.  Mixed in the iron oxide we should have some thorium.  As the iron oxide "nuclear melts" some of the thorium also is given some extra neutrons as the iron oxide nuclear melts from the electrons provided by the quartz crystal.  This should make some of our thorium take up extra neutrons and to create a slightly enriched version of thorium.  We need to stay below the 12% mark to stay legal which is beyond the limit we will achieve anyway.  Then we can use that to make energy from.
