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.

EXACTLY my thoughts!!!  I've still got some friends and relatives that fish.

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.
