Did you know that coal is more radioactive that nuclear waste? While most people know of nuclear power plants and the risks we take using them, the average person doesn’t know that a coal powered plant is more dangerous.
What most people know about nuclear implants they learned by watching television, movies, or hearing about the great disasters like Chernobyl. But more harmful is the fire ash produced by a coal-fired power house.
Coal is believed to be responsible for such environmental issues as acid rain, mining accidents, and greenhouse emissions. What happens is that while the elements used in the burning process still hold a danger, they do so in a much smaller form. A larger portion of this element is far less radioactive than when it is broken down. But when the coal-fired power houses burn their coal, it creates an ash making all those elements into small particle pieces. These pieces are now much more harmful and a lot more radioactive at these concentrated levels. The burning process can cause an element to be 10 times more harmful when it is released as ash.
