Now picture what’s going on in David Maisel’s “American Mines” photos taking place in and around Grand Canyon National Park. Just last week, congress proposed a bill to allow uranium mining within the 1,000 acres of currently protected public lands surrounding the Grand Canyon. While I’m hopeful that the proposed legislation to allow destructive mining activity in this area will not pass (would we really let that happen?), the fact that it has even gotten this far is disturbing to me. I just visited the Center for Biological Diversity’s “Take Action” page and sent a letter to my Representative. You can do the same while learning more about this issue here.
