Pebble Mine of Bristol Bay Endangers Whales

To keep thriving fish markets and tourism industries in Alaska it is best to avoid generating roach motel taglines like, "Alaska, home of lethal mine tailing ponds. The marine life and tourists come in but they won't go out."

Another great article Deb - thank you ! The details of the adversive effects upon the environment are blood curdling. It's incomprehensible to me that anyone with foresight and knowledge would allow this. I just read a letter from a Senator in Idaho who is leaving her office - why ? she's fed up with the constant pandering to industry and ruthless choices to cut off the most powerless. She can't fight it anymore. Very very disturbing letter- but since the powers that be thrive on our indifference, defeat and lack of knowledge - more reason to raise our voices. That can never stop - no matter how dark it gets. It's getting pretty damn dark too !

Deb, thanks for the spread of awareness.

A lot of people think that pollution is for air and freshwater. They believe that oceans are so big that it can be disturbed. But man's power is far more. But he is using in a negative way.
