Exactly my point.

A 1000MW coal plant produces approx 300,000 tons of waste product per year.
A nuclear plan produces .5. This means the concentration of the chemicals in
the coal plant are much lower by many orders of magnitude than the nuclear,
hence making the nuclear waste more toxic by a great deal.
