Another day, another extinction. Welcome to the anthropocene.

Hopefully, they will not allow this project to go through.

It's sad to see this go on, but I bet the coal money (as dirty as it is) will pay off the right people and make adds saying everything is OK and safe. Seems we keep going through this same garbage again...........and again.

I think of the Joni Mitchelle song, BIG YELLOW TAXI and the choirs that goes DON'T IT ALWAYS SEEM TO GO THAT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT TILL IT GONE.......they payed paridise and put in a parking lot.

Look up the song, it's a good one I used to play on my guitar.

OK - enough people. (and by enough I mean too many people on this planet.)

Let's hope there is a chance this plan for a mine will be stopped somehow
