World Report: Uranium Mining

[I]n the American West, there is a new rush -- this time for uranium rather than gold. The push for nuclear energy is making uranium precious, and as the price rises, efforts to get it out of the ground intensify. That's where the trouble starts. Many are saying, 'Not in my backyard!'

World Report premieres every Tuesday on HDNet, and is the only program of its kind to be shown entirely in stunning, 1080i high-definition. For more, go to

While this YouTube clip spotlights Goliad, TX, it speaks the truth about contamination, well-water pollution, and the overall dangers of mining uranium. It's only 3:11 minutes long...well-worth watching.
