Best Uranium Quotes

  1. “Satellite images suggest North Korea is building a light-water reactor and working on uranium enrichment. This is troubling.” ~ Yukiya Amano
  2. “Arizona, our beautiful state, was built on mining. Copper is huge here, and now uranium. And then we have the federal government coming in, writing all these rules and regulations and telling us that we can’t do this and we can’t do that. We need concise, clear answers.” ~ Jan Brewer
  3. “Obviously any export of uranium to India could only occur within an appropriate international framework to be negotiated by the commonwealth government.” ~ Jay Weatherill

  7. “They have been saying for a long time that Iraq made an effort to import active uranium, and my colleague demonstrated the other day that they came to the conclusion that it was a fake document that everybody is relying upon.” ~ Hans Blix
  8. “Encouraging underground uranium mining on the Colorado Plateau um, the federal government was the only purchaser of uranium ore to try to manufacture uh, atomic bombs.” ~ Tom Udall
  9. “Why should people be afraid that we use a few small pellets of uranium at the nuclear power plant in Bataan? Don’t they know that we’re surrounded by uranium? We have the world’s fourth largest deposits of uranium. Yes, we’re all radioactive — must be the reason why we have so many faith healers!” ~ Imelda Marcos
  10. “The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” ~ George W. Bush

  11. “The use of depleted uranium in the Gulf War has been particularly effective. Radiation levels in Iraq are appallingly high. Babies are born with no brain, no eyes, no genitals. Where they do have ears, mouths or rectums, all that issues from these orifices is blood.’ – HAROLD PINTER A $19 trillion price tag since 1940 for past, present, and future wars reveals our addiction to war and bloodshed.” ~ Philip Berrigan
  12. “Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, laser and fiber optic technologies, Particle beams, Electromagnetic propulsion systems, Depleted uranium projectiles, Stealth capabilities, and many others! How do I know? I was in charge! A matter of public record I think the kids on this planet are wise to the truth, and I think we ought to give it to them. I think they deserve it.” ~ Philip J. Corso
  13. “O. Hahn and F. Strassmann have discovered a new type of nuclear reaction, the splitting into two smaller nuclei of the nuclei of uranium and thorium under neutron bombardment. Thus they demonstrated the production of nuclei of barium, lanthanum, strontium, yttrium, and, more recently, of xenon and caesium. It can be shown by simple considerations that this type of nuclear reaction may be described in an essentially classical way like the fission of a liquid drop, and that the fission products must fly apart with kinetic energies of the order of hundred million electron-volts each.” ~ Lise Meitner
  14. “We now have irrefutable evidence that [Saddam] has once again set up and reconstituted his program to take uranium, to enrich it to sufficiently high grade, so that it will function as the base material as a nuclear weapon. And there’s no doubt about the fact that the level of effort has escalated in recent months.” ~ Dick Cheney
  15. “Nuclear power is here to stay, and we need to support a strong domestic uranium industry.” ~ Michael C. Burgess

  16. “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years, and he could have it earlier.” ~ Jay Rockefeller
  17. “I don’t know about you, but I lie awake nights worrying about Canadian uranium. I know these people. I grew up there. You have no idea what they’re capable of doing. If Sidney Crosby hadn’t scored that goal to win the Olympic gold medal, there’s no telling what might have ensued.” ~ Charles Krauthammer
  18. “Dr. A.Q. Khan’s part is only enriching the uranium to weapons grade, … He does not know about making the bomb, he does not know about the trigger mechanism, he does not know about the delivery system” ~ Pervez Musharraf
  19. “The sponsors of war closely resemble the weapons they create. And smart bombs, depleted uranium, land mines, rockets and tanks, rather than protect ‘widows and orphans and strangers at the gate’, are designed precisely to create ‘widows and orphans’, to transform strangers into enemies and enemies into corpses.” ~ Daniel Berrigan
  20. “There are better alternatives… Australia should be exporting its solar technology, not its uranium.” ~ Bob Brown

  21. “What is it that you contain? The dead. Time. Light patterns of millennia opening in your gut. Every minute, in each of you, a few million potassium atoms succumb to radioactive decay. The energy that powers these tiny atomic events has been locked inside potassium atoms ever since a star-sized bomb exploded nothing into being. Potassium, like uranium and radium, is a long-lived radioactive nuclear waste of the supernova bang that accounts for you. Your first parent was a star.” ~ Jeanette Winterson
  22. “Russia is opposed to the proliferation of mass destruction weapons, including nuclear weapons, and in this context we call upon our Iranian friends to abandon the uranium enrichment programme.” ~ Vladimir Putin
  23. “We have been forced to admit for the first time in history not only the possibility of the fact of the growth and decay of the elements of matter. With radium and with uranium we do not see anything but the decay. And yet, somewhere, somehow, it is almost certain that these elements must be continuously forming. They are probably being put together now in the laboratory of the stars. … Can we ever learn to control the process. Why not? Only research can tell.” ~ Robert Andrews Millikan
  24. “[Pitchblende] consists of a peculiar, distinct, metallic substance. Therefore its former denominations, Pechblende, pitch-iron-ore, &c. are no longer applicable, and must be supplied by another more appropriate name. I have chosen that of Uranium, as a kind of memorial, that the chemical discovery of this new metal happened in the period of astronomical discovery of the new planet Uranus.” ~ Martin Heinrich Klaproth
  25. “It’s official: cyber terror is the new yellowcake uranium.” ~ Kevin Poulsen

  31. “Those organizations, al-Qaeda being the first one, have all settled in areas full of mining and oil resources or in geostrategic zones. They settled in Afghanistan which underground is filled with oil and lithium. North Mali is filled with mining resources (uranium). It is essential to question the impact and role of some international players that create or let those organizations settle there.” ~ Tariq Ramadan
  32. “Our flame is taking the normal depleted uranium – the 99.3 percent that’s cheap as heck, and there’s a pile of it sitting in Paducah, Kentucky that’s enough to power the United States for hundreds and hundreds of years. You’re taking that and you are converting it to plutonium – and then you’re burning that.” ~ Bill Gates
  33. “The concept of this so-called “TerraPower reactor” is that you, in the same reactor, you both burn and breed. So, instead of making plutonium and then extracting it, we take uranium – the 99.3 percent that you normally don’t do anything with – we convert that, and we burn it.” ~ Bill Gates
  34. “Over more than a decade, Iran had moved ahead with its nuclear program. And before the deal, it had installed nearly 20,000 centrifuges that could enrich uranium for a nuclear bomb.” ~ Barack Obama
  35. “The part of uranium that’s fissile – when you hit it with a neutron, it splits in two – is about 0.7%. The reactors we have today are burning that 0.7%.” ~ Bill Gates

  36. “Iranian nuclear policy is transparent, and we have opened our facilities to United Nations inspectors. However, we will not abandon the great achievements of Iranian scientists. I too will not suspend uranium enrichment. However, I will attempt to avoid unnecessary tensions. We have a right to enrich uranium.” ~ Mir-Hossein Mousavi
  37. “I’ve had two great years, probably five good years. So I had 20 years of just kind of uncertainty and suffering and ego destruction and poverty. All these things. There’s no way I’m ever going to catch up to the misery years. It’s impossible… If I don’t do anything dumb or I don’t get a disease or something, and then I’ve got to five to eight years I think where it’ll really be great and then it will start to degenerate like uranium, you know?” ~ Louis C. K.
  38. “If the Iraqi regime is able to produce, buy or steal an amount of highly enriched uranium a little larger than a single softball, [it] could have a nuclear weapon in less than a year.” ~ George W. Bush
  39. “The nuclear approach I’m involved in is called a traveling-wave reactor, which uses waste uranium for fuel. There’s a lot of things that have to go right for that dream to come true – many decades of building demo plants, proving the economics are right. But if it does, you could have cheaper energy with no CO2 emissions.” ~ Bill Gates
  40. “Well I’m not convinced that expanding uranium mining is in the best interests of the country and the best interests of its environment.” ~ Peter Garrett

  41. “It was equally imperative that this chain of reactions should always tend to dampen, to die out. It must not build up, or the uranium mass would explode within a time interval too short to be measured by any means whatsoever. Nor would there be anyone left to measure it.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein
  42. “U.S. News Organizations observe the anniversary of September 11 with investigations about the nation’s continuing vulnerability to terrorism. First, the New York Daily News reports that two of its reporters carried box cutters, razor kinves, and pepper spray on fourteen commerical flights without getting caught. Then ABC News reports that it smuggled fifteen pounds of uranium into New York City. Then Fox News reports that it flew Osama bin Laden to Washington, D.C., and videotaped him touring the White House.” ~ Dave Barry
  43. “At least with [Hillary] Clinton, you know, there was some degree of transparency. There was some sense of what’s going on here, and a lot to be very alarmed about, whether it’s the – you know, the Prince Bandar and, you know, the princes of Saudi Arabia, or Bahrain, or the Russians that she enabled to acquire 20 percent of our uranium supply. I mean, really outrageous stuff. The arms deals, et., a lot of grave concern.” ~ Jill Stein

  46. “If you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons. As we’ve said time and time again, Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, and was personally thanked by Putin for it. Hillary Clinton allowed one-fifth of America’s uranium to – reserve to be sold to a Russian firm whose investors were Clinton Foundation donors. And the Clinton campaign chairman’s brother lobbied against sanctions on Russia’s largest bank and failed to report it. If you want to talk about having relations, look no further than there.” ~ Bernie Sanders
  47. “There’s an interesting book by the former Brazilian ambassador Celso Amorim. In 2010, he initiated an effort along with Turkey to settle the whole Iran issue. Nobody outside of the United States takes it to be much of an issue. They made a deal with Iran for Iran to essentially give away its low enriched uranium to Turkey for storage, and in return, the Western powers. It was immediately scratched by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And the main reason was they didn’t want anybody else to be involved in it. We were supposed to run things, but we didn’t say that.” ~ Noam Chomsky
  48. “To say that the United States has pursued diplomacy with North Korea is a little bit misleading. It did under the Clinton administration, though neither side completely lived up to their obligations. Clinton didn’t do what was promised, nor did North Korea, but they were making progress. So when Bush came into the presidency, North Korea had enough uranium or plutonium for maybe one or two bombs, but then very limited missile capacity. During the Bush years it’s exploded. The reason is, he immediately canceled the diplomacy and he’s pretty much blocked it ever since.” ~ Noam Chomsky
  49. “I tell you one thing, Hillary Clinton tried to make a deal. She had the reset. She gave all that valuable uranium away, she did other things away. They say I’m close to Russia. Hillary Clinton gave away 20% of the uranium. She’s close to Russia. You know what I gave to Russia? You know what I gave?” ~ Donald Trump
  50. “We had Hillary Clinton try and do a reset. We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20% of the uranium in our country.” ~ Donald Trump

  51. “I didn’t do anything for Russia. I’ve done nothing for Russia. Hillary Clinton gave them 20 percent of our uranium. Hillary Clinton did a reset, remember? With the stupid plastic button that made us all look like a bunch of jerks. Here, take a look. Lavrov looked at her like, what the hell is she doing with that cheap plastic button?” ~ Donald Trump
  52. “Uranium mining in northern Canada has left over 120 million tons of radioactive waste. This amount represents enough material to cover the Trans-Canada Highway two meters deep across the country. Present production of uranium waste from Saskatchewan alone occurs at the rate of over 1 million tons annually. Since 1975, hospitalization for cancer, birth defects and circulatory illnesses in that area have increased dramatically – between 123 and 600 percent in that region.” ~ Winona LaDuke
  53. “We had Hillary Clinton try and do a reset. We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? This thing called nuclear weapons, like lots of things, are done with uranium, including some bad things.” ~ Kevin Drum
  54. “Almost all of the governments have agreed that they will not acquire nuclear weapons and that they will allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to monitor their commercial and research nuclear power operations to ensure that nuclear materials – highly enriched uranium and plutonium – are not diverted to use in weapons.” ~ John Burroughs
  55. “The nuclear industry is currently undergoing a rebirth. The uranium market will remain tight for at least the next three years.” ~ Paul Gray

  56. “[Barack] Obama can draw lines for himself and his country, not for other countries. We have our red lines, like our sovereignty, our independence, while if you want to talk about world red lines, the United States used depleted uranium in Iraq, Israel used white phosphorus in Gaza, and nobody said anything. What about the red lines ? We don’t see red lines. It’s political red lines.” ~ Bashar al-Assad
  57. “The Iranians know that if they develop nuclear weapons, they will be in tremendous jeopardy from military capabilities of their neighbors and of the United States. I am not predicting what will happen in 2013, but I do think it is a crucial year. I hope we can make it clear to the Iranians that we do not object to them having peaceful use of nuclear power. But when they enrich Uranium to a 20 percent level, people think they are going for the bomb. Their uranium enrichment program is a real danger.” ~ Sam Nunn
  58. “The kingdoms of Africa and Mesopotamia, machine gunning your body with depleted uranium, this is the age of microchips and titanium, the dark side of the moon, and contact with aliens.” ~ Immortal Technique
  59. “It looks like bribery. I mean,there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20 percent of America’s uranium production to
    Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting with her home
    with the principals, and by erasing e-mails. And I presume we might know
    for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out
    you know, out thousands of e-mails.” ~ Jedediah Bila
  60. “You know, they say I’m close to Russia. Hillary Clinton gave away 20 percent of the uranium in the United States. She’s close to Russia.” ~ Donald Trump

  61. “[From uranium] there are present at least two distinct types of radiation one that is very readily absorbed, which will be termed for convenience the α radiation, and the other of a more penetrative character, which will be termed the β radiation.” ~ Ernest Rutherford
  62. “Wherefore no name can be found for a new fossil [element] which indicates its peculiar and characteristic properties (in which position I find myself at present), I think it is best to choose such a denomination as means nothing of itself and thus can give no rise to any erroneous ideas. In consequence of this, as I did in the case of Uranium, I shall borrow the name for this metallic substance from mythology, and in particular from the Titans, the first sons of the earth. I therefore call this metallic genus TITANIUM.” ~ Martin Heinrich Klaproth
  63. “The recent inspection find in the private home of a scientist of a box of some 3,000 pages of documents, much of it relating to the laser enrichment of uranium support a concern that has long existed that documents might be distributed to the homes of private individuals. On our side, we cannot help but think that the case might not be isolated and that such placements of documents is deliberate to make discovery difficult and to seek to shield documents by placing them in private homes.” ~ Hans Blix
  64. “Thus the radio elements formed strange and cruel families in which each member was created by spontaneous transformation of the mother substance: radium was a “descendant” of uranium, polonium a descendant of radium.” ~ Eve Curie
  65. “My second Christian name is John. Good solid bourgeois Christian name, like my first name, Peter, a rock. Minerals. Build on rock, rocks, uranium. Peter and John were two of the twelve apostles – arguable the two most significant. Were my parents hedging their bets?” ~ Peter Greenaway
