You, you, uranium

Given how dangerous U is (are?), I am implacably opposed to more mining. I know it has its uses, but humanity hasn't had the success it could have had with dangerous substances in the past. And I'm not talking about my chalk outline pasting past either.

Midnight Oil were right to want to ward off the threat of uranium mining and resultant nuclear fallout; it wasn't just songwriter rhetoric.

If there is any irony in being under the Gunn environmentally, the former head of the Australian Conservation Foundation and spokesman for Nuclear Disarmament, must surely find it in the approval of a fourth uranium mine
