Carbon 14 can not be a major constituent of the fision process as it is way down the Bell Curve of fision by-products as I was taught in Navy Nuclear Power School. Carbon 14 is formed in the Ionisphere by Cosmic Ray bombardment of Nitrogen 14, converting it to Carbon 14, which as we know, is used to date organic artifacts back about 50,000 years. It beats Adam and Eve by 40,000 years.

I just listened to the Carbon 14 conversation with Harvey Wasserman and was a bit perplexed about how Carbon 14 is emitted from nuclear plants. They are a closed loop system and do not emit. I am not a pro nuker (as attested in my many Forum posts that have been deleted) but his discussion of Carbon 14 emitted by nuclear power plants made no sense.
