National Park Service Lies: Jobs Die

"Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee are demanding answers from Interior Secretary Ken Salazar about leaked emails showing that the administration lacked scientific justification for blocking uranium mining on one million acres of previously designated federal lands in Arizona.

The emails between National Park Service (NPS) officials include statements such as “my personal and professional opinion is that the potential impacts stated in the DEIS as [sic] grossly overestimated and even then they are minor to negligible” and “there exists no information we could find that would [suggest] how contamination of park waters might physically occur.” DEIS stands for Draft Environmental Impact Statement, being discussed in the emails by hydrologists.

“The DEIS goes to great lengths in an attempt to establish impacts to water resources from uranium mining. It fails to do so, but instead creates enough confusion and obfuscation of hydrogeologic principles to create the illusion that there could be adverse impacts if uranium mining occurred,” states another email."


"a ban on mining in this region could impact as many as 1,000 jobs "
