Excerpt from Uranium Drive-In

The promise of jobs from a proposed uranium mill has an economically devastated mining community in Colorado hopeful for the first time in decades. Despite the fact that residents of this once prosperous area experienced economic, environmental and health consequences in the past, the majority of residents want to see the uranium industry return to the region. When environmentalists step in to stop the proposal, mill supporters are enraged. Uranium Drive-In tells personal stories that offer a springboard for national debate about rural poverty, economic development issues, environmental concerns and nuclear energy.
