Two things.  

First, if we are going to treat www.picassodreams.com as a credible reference, then my dog 
should be admitted as a credible reference also.  Since my dog has indicated to me that the 
website in question is not reliable, we need not examine their claims further.

Second, James is not actually at line 050 of the DU circus loop.  He's gone past 050, headed 
backwards, and is now at line 030.  I'll render it backwards so you can see where he's 

 050 James give a link to a blog/email/newspaper quote.
 040 Radsafe presses for citations.
 030 James implies that Radsafe should prove (X).
Did UKAEA make some obscure statement, as claimed by the blog he cites? Lets see, We 
can (A) do James' work for him, or (B) go back to real work that has some basis in reality.

Tough choice, but I think I'll go with (B) this time.
