Trumps EPA says NO to Pebble Mine
« on: January 31, 2018, 04:07:01 PM »
In short, Trump said he would look at putting the mine in and after further review the EPA said not it will be detrimental to the local environment.

Good news, I know nothing about it other than just about 100% of the people I trust that have an opinion on it are against it.

Hope this stays shut down!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

Several good friends of mine are commercial fishermen up there in Bristol Bay, and as you can imagine, they are not on board with having a large open-pit mine straddling the headwaters of two major sockeye-producing rivers...

I also hope this stays shut down.

You can educate away ignorance, sober up drunkenness, but you can't fix stupid.

Just one example of why the EPA actually has a need to be around.

That fishery in the long term is worth more than that mine.
