Seeing what we're talking about
HHSchueller has kindly allowed me to post his photographs of Ranger Uranium Mine here (thanks!).
It makes and excellent follow up to my post on Beazley's backflip on uranium mining in Australia.
I think it is very revealing to see what it is we are talking about. Yes, it is a bloody big hole in the ground!
It's more revealing when I consider how some people discuss mining activities – this small exchange on two peas, no pod is very revealing – with very little sense of how real, immense and damaging they are. Especially when we pull something as toxic and radioative as uranium.
Paul's (of two peas no pod) full post on the G8 summit and energy is worth reading too.
