Lord Marshall was an amazingly eloquent speaker, blessed with both an 
analytical technical mind and a quick wit.  I recall reading a number of his 
speeches about the  nuclear energy debate and energy policy in the 1980s, 
and these speeches were so well stated they could not help but impress any 
reader with his insight and unique personality.  He reminded me in so many 
ways of Dr. Ralph Lapp, who passed away a few years ago, and who I had the 
honor to know personally. Dr. Lapp while not in a position to receive a 
title from the Queen, would have had he been British.

own country, the United Kingdom, I like to point out that the average
Englishman's garden occupies 1/10 of an acre. By digging down one metre,
we can extract 6 kilograms of thorium, 2 kilograms of uranium, and 7,000
kilograms of potassium -- all of them radioactive waste, not man-made,
but the residue left over when God created this
