Isn't it funny how nobody even knows that there are thousands of still-burning coal seam fires, hundreds in the US alone that make city-sized areas uninhabitable...
...but as soon as the word "nuclear" gets brought up, we have a media feeding frenzy, and everybody brings up Chernobyl as if the plant's surrounding area is now a glassed desert right out of a Captain Planet episode?
Maybe the hysteria should be used against itself. In Message 90 you noted that:
Coal power plants release ash directly into the air that not only causes acid rain but also increases the natural concentration of Uranium and other radioactive elements in coal by several orders of magnitude, such that people living in the so-called "stack shadow" of a plant can ingest radioactive materials and have an increased risk of cancer.
You're more likely to get radiation-induced cancer from a coal power plant than from a nuclear plant.
Use the hysteria! Sound the alarm!
Coal Power is more RADIOACTIVE than Nuclear Power!
