Quotes

"Nuclear power, promoted as too cheap to meter, turned outout to be too expensive to use, the road to nuclear proliferation, and the creator of radioactive trash that has no place to go."
"It's the only answer that was available," Lochbaum said. "If they were to say they weren't safe, what were they supposed to do (with the waste), go back in a time machine?"
Just Say No to Big Mines in Headwaters of Salmon Rivers —by akmk : "A serious industry and regulatory failure resulted in a massive poison tailings spill from the Mt. Polly gold and silver mine in BC into the headwaters of the Fraser River watershed this past week. Fraser River salmon runs are significant and important to many: About 1.5 to 2 million sockeye salmon, from the great Fraser River fishery shared by the U S and Canada, are headed for spawning beds in the Quesnel Lake region of British Columbia this summer, where they will run into a major mine disaster. The Monday breach of a tailings dam at the Mount Polley mine has dumped millions of liters of mine waste, with islands of debris already floating in Quesnel Lake. The Mount Polley mine is in the Cariboo region of central British Columbia.  Already, regional authorities have told humans not to use water from Quesnel Lake, Caribou Creek and the entire Quesnel and Cariboo River systems down to the Fraser River. Damages may be permanent according to a Vancouver researcher."
