New Reader Poll: Uranium mining ban

Salazar's announcement was praised by environmental groups and harshly criticized by local officials, who say mining uranium has the potential to create thousands of jobs and millions in revenue.

• Science is on Salazar's side

• Protect the environment no matter what

• There is no legitimate reason to ban mining in the area

• Salazar is just another eco-nut
