The mistake: “Irrigation allows year-round farming, and the irrigated plants naturally create a weak acid that is leeching more and more uranium from sediment.”
The Copy Vigilante says: Leeches are ugly little creatures. Some eat meat, others suck blood but if they “leeched” uranium they’d either all be dead or super-strong, giant monsters ruling planet earth. It’s the “leaching” process at work here, CBS News, not mega-freak worms!
Here are some of the Copy Vigilante’s favorite books: Richard Matheson – I Am Legend and Barry Hatton – The Portuguese: A Modern History. And check out the Copy Vigilante’s historical novel – A Sensible Lunatic.
