Save the Grand Canyon from destructive uranium mining A two year ban on uranium mining is set to expire – and the Grand Canyon’s precious lands and vital water supply is threatened by more than 1,100 new mining claims. The Bureau of Land Management is considering a 20 year mining ban. Tell the BLM: Protect the Grand Canyon! Please take action by May 4th to protect the Grand Canyon! Narrated by Craig Childs and directed by James Q Martin, this short video makes a compelling case for the Obama administration’s proposal to protect 1 million acres of public land surrounding Grand Canyon from new uranium mining. By visiting this website, protectgrandcanyon.org, you can send the administration an email in support of those protections; that email will be considered in the government’s formal environmental analysis. May 4th is the last day the government will be accepting public comments, so please act today! Please tell your friends by distributing this video and the protectgrandcanyon.org web link on your blogs, websites, and Facebook. Thanks!
