Politics and the will of the people have gone the way of the doo doo bird since 1982. There will be the token arguments and mouthing off in the Va senate but the money(spice) must flow, let the payoffs begin.

Tailings from uranium mining stay radioactive for thousands of years. Don't let our groundwater be polluted. Call your representative and tell them to vote NO on uranium mining!

Uranium mining in Virginia is probably not a good idea. The current ban was put in place for a reason (and if I recall correctly, it had something to do with Somerset in Orange County, about 20 miles from here). But let's see the final proposal before slamming the door on it.

it takes alot of sulfuric acid to extract uranium from ore material which creates toxic run off collected in pits leaving behind the desired radioactive yellow cake.
