Chris Davey and others:

Please point out to your friend that there is already 5200 kilograms of
Pu239 (11440 lbs.) on the earth and in the oceans from past atmospheric
nuclear weapons testing. I believe this works out to be 1 nanocurie per
square meter.

If you do take the trouble to point this out, I for one, would like to
know what response was elicited.

Thank you
