    Just thought of another one. Would there be any issues with induced radioactivity? Going back to a potential accident where there is a victim that is exposed to a lethal amount of CH4, I would assume that by the time a crew comes to secure the scene that all the radioactive methane would have long sense risen into the atmosphere, but would the crew have to protect themselves from any induced radioactivity from the surrounding structures or from any victims while removing them?

    It is an important , basic , fact that radioactivity can only be induced by neutrons. C-11 emits positrons, so can’t induce radioactivity.
