Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This is a silly statement -

"Uranium is among the most common elements on earth."

Iron is one of the most abundant elements on earth, but it's got to occur in sufficient concentrations to be worth mining, and ditto uranium. And if we were really to take your statement here to the extreme, you would seem to be advocating digging up, crushing and sifting the entire earth's crust. I can live with mining as a necessary "evil" that can be extremely well rehabilitated if done right, but there is evidence to suggest that the concentrated deposits of uranium we know of are not sufficient; and as I'm sure you know, the refuelling process with regard to fast-breeder reactors has been extremely problematic, and that's being kind.

Please have a read of the links I put up above with regard to Van Leeuwin & Smith's original work, and their comprehensive rebuttal of the NWA.
