(we have been told:) LEAVE URANIUM IN THE GROUND (or there will be dire consequences).
ALL of Earth(#s biopshere) IS --and will be for many generations-- suffering consequences already. (want more Cancer, anyone?)

" Uranium causes somatic and genetic damage. We know it for ~200 years... At that time radioactivity was not known! [Some Chemist from U.o.Tübingen, Germoney, then] talked about the "most dangerous of all chemical substances" that he studied "being Uranium. " -- Dr. Asaf Durakovic in a 2003 DemocrycyNow!-i'view

You took the words right out of my mouth, Robert. Those who live life without a conscience, should be doomed to repeat their life as dirt beneath our feet.
