How to Save Virginia’s Economy? A self-described “grass-roots coalition” says “uranium!”


    According to this story, “The Virginia Energy Independence Alliance is launching a public education and information campaign to promote the potential benefits of uranium mining.” The alliance “describes itself as a grass-roots coalition that has the corporate backing of coal company Alpha Natural Resources, solar and wind interests, and Virginia Uranium Inc., which wants to mine a rich deposit in Southside Virginia.” And, for anyone who believes this is truly a “grass-roots coalition,” I’ve got a nice…well, uranium mine to sell you! 🙂  Anyway, here’s one of its videos. Enjoy, and go uranium! (snark)
