There are 3,272 abandoned uranium mines and prospects located in just four states; Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Colorado. The consequences of uranium mining that last practically forever is explained by Charmaine White Face, a member of the Oglala band of the Great Sioux Nation. None of these mines had permission to operate from the Indian tribes, who are supposedly in control of this area. 


Toxic, radioactive substances found in just one of these open pit mine areas includes arsenic, molybdenum, radium, thorium, uranium. These radioactive, toxic substances take the form of dust which travels with the wind for hundreds of miles. These same radioactive elements travel great distances in water runoff which goes into the nearest river or water supply. These radioactive elements also end up going into the groundwater which serves as drinking water for large numbers of people. 

One of these large open pit abandoned uranium mines is located within miles of Mount Rushmore. That radioactive dust blows over this US monument as well as the town nearby, and it is found in the water that tourists drink; which is radioactive.

The radioactive uranium being breathed in by residents and millions of visitors who come to see the US Presidents in rock, is very symbolic of what is happening to this nation; invisible poison is covering not only the surface but migrating underneath the soil. The poison uranium is inhaled and drinkable. No one escapes from the dust. No one escapes from the water; not the residents, and not the clueless tourists. 

The cancer mortality rates for this area are the highest in the country.



This area is called the US Chernobyl, and a genocide is happening here. How and why? Dr. K. Kearfott PhD, a nuclear physics professor from the University of Michigan went into this area of the country and found that radiation levels in areas visited with students were higher than those in the evacuated zones around Fukushima. The Fukushima evacuation zone radiation levels were higher than those around Chernobyl. The radiation levels in this area are higher than even the Fukushima evacuation zones.



These people are asking for the US government (or the nuclear industry) to clean up and remediate these 2,000 plus Superfund sites, before any more uranium mines are opened. This seems reasonable to us, what do you think? 


Does it sound like the nuclear industry is being responsible and protecting the health of the communities inside the United States?
