The nuclear fuel chain destroys the environment and kills from the start, with uranium mining, to the finish, with long-lived, deadly, nuclear waste.

Why must Americans fight foreign companies in court, and even fight Congressmen, to protect the land and water?

  1. Joanna Clark says:

    If you can buy a member of Congress, why not a judge, as well.

  2. This proposed destruction of our national treasure in Grand Canyon needs cancellation. No mining in Marble Canyon is going to favor the environment or beauty of this place. Why are we going to destroy any inch of this national/ Global wonder. Please, those in power to reverse this calamity, Try for once to put the environment above greed , profit and exploitation. Leave any part of our public domain out of the hands of exploiters !
