I don't know about you, but I love the Grand Canyon just as it is. What do we need more uranium for?
Here's an article about planned mining at the Grand Canyon for uranium and what you can do to protest against it. Then the slide show goes to Alberta Canada with photos of the process and the damages being done to animals and birds are endangered.
Incredible! This article is by Alternet reprinting the Sierra Club newsletter and slideshow. I don't want to sign up for Sierra Club, I get enough newsletters as it is.

Editor's Note: View a slideshow from Post Carbon Institute with photos by Ecoflight to see the threatened land and take action.
The U.S. Forest Service has decided to allow Energy Fuels Resources, Inc. to begin operating a uranium mine near Grand Canyon National Park. The Canyon Mine, located on the Kaibab National Forest six miles south of the park, threatens cultural values, wildlife and endangered species, and increases the risk of soil pollution and pollution and depletion of groundwater feeding springs and wells in and near Grand Canyon.
