Radioactive Coal

While there is outcry about the waste from nuclear plants, I’m curious about waste from coal fired plants.  —  I once read that if one takes a geiger counter to the slag heap outside of a coal fired power station, the radiation level would force a nuclear plant to close and the surrounding evacuated.  —  Now here is a science project for a HS student.  Check radiation levels outside varius types of power plants.  —  Cool!
