How many jobs would be lost if the Colorado River was contaminated by uranium mining runoff? How many lives? Do you think any of the Republicans running for president care about the environment?

20 More Years
It's nice that there will be a 20 year moratorium on uranium mining on the Grand Canyon. Having spent a lot of time in the 'big ditch', I strongly oppose any thing that would spoil it. Especially such a short sighted exploitation that would also potentially poison millions of downstream people.
But I also know how permanently incredible the Grand Canyon is. I have a strong feeling that it will still be an awe striking geological formation long after humans have gone extinct.
