It’s also great to hear from our readers! As promised, the winner of a RIO hat and Buff is Phil Brna. Congrats Phil & thanks again to all of you!
More Jurassic Photos
We have a few more photos from the group who was with us at Laguna Verde, aka Jurassic Lake, that we missed adding last week. More big fish!
Urgent! Your Help is Needed
Please don't glance at this and move on. Everyone is tired of hearing about Pebble Mine and that is just what our government want from us.
In the Army Corp EIS (Environmental Impact Study) the Corps only examined a tiny discharge from the tailings storage facility. Independent studies suggest a realistic dam failure would involve 10,000 times more material flowing downstream than the Army Corps studied.
“Because the Army Corps didn’t do their job, Bristol Bay fishermen had to hire a scientist to take a hard look at a catastrophic tailings dam failure in Bristol Bay like those that have recently occurred in British Columbia and Brazil. Dr. Cam Wobus is an MIT-educated earth scientist specializing in hydrology and geomorphology. He is a peer-reviewed expert on this subject. What he found was horrifying. If the Pebble tailings dam fails, the Nushagak River basin downstream of the mine is going to be coated with a layer of mine waste. Summer or winter, wet or frozen, it doesn’t matter: nothing will stop the flood of debris. “
And this is just the beginning. Please help preserve this fragile wild untouched part of our country from drilling by a non-American company! This is too fragile an area – failure will occur. Make the mining companies find a way to extract the copper while still preserving environment and the billion dollar plus salmon industry. We know we need copper and we are not against mining, but we are very much against this type of mining. We only have a short window to voice our opposition, so we are begging you to help us by clicking through and completing the message to the Army Corps.
It only takes a minute to let your voice be heard.
