Apparently money isn’t green.

Interesting (via Fark):

Jeffrey Lee is not interested in the soaring price of uranium, which could make him one of the world’s richest men.

“This is my country. Look, it’s beautiful and I fear somebody will disturb it,” he says, waving his arm across a view of rocky land surrounded by Kakadu National Park, where the French energy giant Areva wants to extract 14,000 tonnes of uranium worth more than $5 billion.

“I’m not interested in white people offering me this or that … it doesn’t mean a thing.

“I’m not interested in money. I’ve got a job; I can buy tucker; I can go fishing and hunting. That’s all that matters to me.”

How exactly is white relevant?

  1. I loved this article for the strength that it displays of a land owner having the right to do whatever the hell he wants with his property!
    However on a side note the white part may or may not be relevant (depending on your social/economic agenda) but it was part of a quote and at least the writer didn’t delete it to make the statement PC.
