Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As for most uranium mines being on native American lands--this is untrue.

that's not what I said. I said

1) Australian uranium mines are on indigenous people's land


2) the current USA nuclear waste dump, Yucca Mountain, is on native people's land.

Both of which are quite correct.

We agree on the magnitude and urgency of the approaching crisis; we fundamentally disagree with regard to one of thes solutions. As you can see from another post I made re: thorium salt-melt plants, I am not a "fundie" in any sense when it comes to this debate. But I do believe that the 10-year window that is the same for whether you build nuclear plants, or look into other resources, is much better spent on the latter, especially as large-scale renewable energy is just around the corner - there are nx1000MW solar thermal plants, wind farms, solar fields etc etc. all being built, right now. And I think you are fundamentally underestimating the possibilities of modular, community-owned and individual household level renewable energy projects.
