Tracey, I believe your correspondent's got hold of a straw man. Don't
know about CI in Michigan, but Alcor's Dewars aren't even powered - just
topped up with the appropriate chilled substance every now and again to
keep the contents cool.

As for carbon output - I don't see how carbon is generated in the
process (unless he's counting any discarded cooling products.) And the
process doesn't even involve radioactivity. 

So his questions don't seem to be valid. Would suggest, however, that
you don't continue the argument beyond one answer - I'd guess your
correspondent's fuzzy ideas about cryonics extend to the whole of
science, and he's unlikely to be a rewarding debating partner.
