The Flagstaff City Council, lead by Mayor Coral Evans, is working on a resolution to oppose uranium mining near the Grand Canyon. I interviewed the president of the mining company on Friday.
On Monday, Mayor Evans, along with members of the Flagstaff City Council visited the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant in Southern AZ. In light of recent comments about mining uranium in Northern Arizona (and opposing it) I found her comment about where the uranium for the AZ plant comes from kinda funny, in a sad way.
“The uranium used at Palo Verde is not sourced (does not come from) in the US.” Mayor Coral Evans
Ummm, out of mind and out of sight = ok? And special thanks to the Mayor for clarifying what “sourced” means too!
