Another case of environmental extremists misusing the legal system to halt legitimate economic development in the United States.

It's time to put a stop to the continued suppression of rural areas that need the growth of available industry to maintain a stable economic base.

Environmental extremists can be much, yes I agree. I appreciate econimic endeavours. But I'm not for money for lives hype. Especially for the Natives around the mining of Uranium area. The way the state of NM is panning towards economics more than environmental task, I'm more for the environmental point these days. Especially for the area where no pro-econimic entity is for the workers. The business gets their money at the cost of Dine' workers lives. No thanks.

Contaminate it with what? The uranium that is already in the ground, above the water table? And quite naturally existing, I might add?

Current mining and processing techniques are based upon an evolutionary pattern. Having learned from the past, the techniques used today, in the United States, are the safest in the world.

Uranium WILL be mined, somewhere. Either here in the U.S., or in other nations that do NOT utilize the best that modern tech and safety standards have to offer.

The United States should capitalize upon it's expertise in the field, and take advantage of market conditions that provide economic benefit for U.S. citizens, rather than give that benefit away to other nations, where safety is not considered a high priority.

Bravo!! We wouldn't want to bring more jobs to the rez...keep companies out of there, we don't want to work for a living. We just need the federal government and casinos to keep cash in our pockets.
