Silk Purses from Sow's Ears: Coal to Diesel and Jet Fuel

Bake coal w/ waste heat from a nuke plant, get Carbon Monoxide AKA 'coal gas'. Sequester the radon, other radioactive nasties and heavy metals found in coal (which is why people die of cancer downwind of coal plants, and why coal kills many times more folks than nuclear power).

Add more Hydrogen, electrolized from water with nuclear power (the oxygen gets liquidized, and goes to hospitals or industrial processes).

Voila!
Low sulfur diesel fuel, and jet fuel, using a plant designed by a Vancouver WA company.

Can you say, "Energy Independence?" With a two hundred year worldwide coal reserve, we have some time to think about the next step in energy, which is what Japan is now planning to test.
