If the moratorium that has kept a ban from mining Uranium in the Coles Hill area of Chatham – Pittsylvania County, VA – is lifted, may God bless VA weather and the residents who live there (including me when I finally get to move there after restoring the old farmhouse – just five miles away from the proposed site).
Instead of writing a list about why it is a bad idea, let me leave the reader with a few YouTube videos that I found, which will give you an idea of how dangerous lifting this ban is, and mostly it is all about VA type of weather and hydrology.
The first video will give the reader a bit of history on how this all started.
About what residents living there will loose.
Huge flood in Coles Hill area – 1996
North Carolina joins to support the ban and this is why this affects NC.
The last speaker on this video makes a good point
The people from Pittsylvania County and beyond do not want the ban to be lifted.
And I leave you with this last video.
If this ban is lifted, living in this small town would be hell. Just think of the pollutants, the noisy equipment, constant movement of mine vehicles … and just picture the worst case scenario … May God bless Pittsylvania County, its residents, and all the people beyond this area who will be affected.
Please sign the petition to keep the ban.
