South Texas Opposes Pollution (STOP) and the Coastal Bend
Sierra Club are sponsoring a teach-in on uranium mining in
Kingsville on May 17.
The course will be led by Dr. Richard Abitz (resume clip below), who has worked since the '80s on problems related to hazardous and radioactive waste contamination.
The stated course objective is to help regional residents better understand what uranium is, where it comes from, how it is mined, and what happens when it is dissolved in water.
It's a timely topic as companies scout South Texas to revive old mine fields and drill into new ones.
There is no charge for attendance.
