Re: “Stop This Mine

The 1872 Mining Act needs to be stricken; there's no way it was intended to allow any & all giant thousand-acre open-pit mines. This is in an area that should be set aside for its recreational opportunities (the Arizona Trail goes thru the preferred alternative area), scenic value, and wildlife habitat, not marred for centuries for the sake of a few hundred jobs.

Re: “Serraglio

Let's have some reasonableness and common-sense, please. Fukushima's design was at least 40 years old and it was hit by a once-in-a-millenium event. Chernobyl was essentially designed to be unsafe so it could fulfill a dual-use purpose of making military-grade plutonium. Yes, they could have been largely or entirely mitigated by simple things such as protecting back-up generators from flooding, having robust containment structures, etc, etc. I think you will find that U.S. nuclear power does not suffer from these simple, obvious in hindsight, problems--but how about finding that out and reporting on that instead of characterizing the entire industry here in the U.S. based on the two most extreme disasters in the world?

Re: “Serraglio

I'm certainly no fan of Montsanto, or the overuse of pesticides, but I read elsewhere that what is planned is a trial on several small areas and not "large swaths of the desert." It seems to me that this smaller-scale experiment was designed to answer the very questions that you pose in your conclusion!

Re: “O'Sullivan

This is a false argument, obviously marijuana could be legalized for adults while remaining illegal for children.

The real argument is whether such legalization would reduce the desire of kids to experiment with it, reduce their access to it, and reduce their exposure to hard-core criminality while seeking it.
