      Want to significantly improve the health of  people in the USA and 
     1.  Get cigarette and other smokers to chew  nicotine gum or kick 
their habits totally.
     2.  Replace aging coal plants with nuclear  and/or natural gas plants. 
 However, we in the USA
          and elsewhere do  depend on coal plants for a considerable 
portion of electricity and/or 
          other power.
          Mr. Helbig, the  antiNukes are everywhere, especially here in the 
Northeastern USA. 
      Most of the people I know from college are  antinuke.  My geological 
graduate school friends
      are usually antinuke, and think I work at  Nuke plants.  They 
generally are not involved in Christian
      or other religions.  The  environment is their religion.  Rock and 
Roll, drug sales, porno,  etc.
      and their paychecks pay for antiNuke  activities.  There is no 
holding back.  Most of the antiNukes 
      are not very scientifically educated, and  know very little about 
Nuclear power.
           Don't circle  your wagons with these people concerning Nuclear 
      Mr. Helbig.  Debate them at the proper  time and place --- argue with 
their leaders, if 
      possible.  Their belief system is  ingrained --- their mind is 
already made up about nuclear power.
      If you do argue or discuss the matter with  these people, please be 
civilized, if possible.  Most of
      these people are power company  customers.  The average man on the 
street may be
      neutral on Nuclear matters.
           Mr. Helbig,  try to be moderate in your views.  You are pretty 
far to the right.  I  try to be moderate,            but  am to the right 
also.  The environmental colleges and liberal college  faculty are pretty far to
      the left, especially here in the  Northeastern USA.
           Don't go  outside tonight, Mr. Helbig.  You may find the local 
antiNuke examining  your
      garbage.  They probably go through your  US Mail before you receive 
           Sorry to go  off on this tangent.  I'm still a fan of Richard 
           Have a good  night.    Regards,    Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig,  PhD

It would  be redundant for the EPA to preclude coal generating plants. That 
already  happened when the dinosaur's were obliterated.
