"Arizona Department of Environmental Quality interim director Henry Darwin admits that they are streamlining the permit process. And that means Denison will not have to monitor the aquifers until inspectors find contamination and they won't have to set aside money for clean-up until a problem occurs."
Translation: "Let's wait until something goes wrong before we worry about doing anything."
Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. That is particularly troubling and dangerous with radioactive mining for very obvious reasons--it takes years for radioactive isotopes to leave the environment.
The industry claims it's "not the mining process that is the threat it's human error," and they downplay the possibility of that occurring even more by touting the most "advanced methods and stringent safety training." That's all fine and good, but what happens when the unexpected happens?
Especially if you have not prepared for it until it does.
Two words: British Petroleum.
