State Senator: 'Earth has lasted 6,000 years without environmental laws'

The Arizona Guardian online newspaper, is prominently displaying a YouTube video of Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen in a committee hearing, with the caption,
On June 25th the senator voiced support for opening up uranium mining in Arizona and countered environmentalists by assuring them that the the Earth has been around for "6,000 years..." and has lasted that long without environmnental laws. She said it twice.


  1. This is beyond all human comprehension. Along the lines of no one even knowing a mining operation existed in a spot. I grieve for Arizona tonight.

  2. Anonymous4:40 PM

  3. Mining. Barbwire. Or water rights or killing all the buffalo and prairie dogs to make it safe for cattle. Or the failed experiment of plowing ALL the prairie land for wheat.
