Virginia Beach State Senator Frank Wagner has been pushing the uranium mining agenda. This does not sit well with his constituents. Virginia Beach stands to lose a lot; their clean water supply could be irreversibly contaminated. Virginia Beach will gain nothing from uranium mining.
In addition there is no shortage of uranium. However, water is such a scarce resource that "water wars" are already being talked about. Virginia's water supply is precious and an extremely valuable resource.
Virginia's water supply should not be placed in jeopardy so that a few folks can make billions of dollars. If our water supply is contaminated it could be a disaster that will never be cleaned up.
One has to ask--What's Senator Frank Wagner gaining by supporting uranium mining?
