  Dammit, Bozzonetti, my writing's bad enough without you misquoting me! I 
didn't say that you couldn't use energy from somewhere else to make something 
radioactive, I said you couldn't make radioactivity out of nothing. (Upon 
reflection, not a very useful statement, and I should rewrite the article; I 
need to include more material on safer nuclear technologies anyway.) 
  The main point of the article stands: coal power releases over a hundred 
times as much radioactivity into the environment per kilowatt-hour as nuclear 
power. And that is the least of the pollution problem from coal. -Bill
