And here I was considering just doing it with orbital bombardment. Much less long-term radioactivity. Probably more expensive, though, until a space elevator goes up.

Plowshare was always scary but the one that gave me nightmares was Project Pluto but that was in the context of this story...

Yes, but Project Pluto was intended to scare people.

BTW was that second link intended to point somewhere else?

To clarify this further, Plowshare gets a "road to hell paved with good intentions" bonus to its scary level.
