“Katuah EarthFirst was founded to protect these mountains. Our bioregion is the most diverse in the world and the genetic treasury here deserves to be fostered and nurtured, not subjected to ionizing radiation – which effectively randomizes DNA…not only in human bodies – in any body of any plant or animal,” said Coleman Smith, a longtime member of the Katuah faction of the global group known as EarthFirst!

"Until we know how to safely dispose of the radioactive materials generated by nuclear plants, we should postpone these activities so as not to cause further harm to future generations. To do otherwise is simply an immoral act, and that is my belief, both as a scientist and as a survivor of the Hiroshima atomic bombing."
