- 2588 days ago -
Chicago Peak is located in Western Montana's Cabinet Mountains Wilderness Area, and is a holy place for the Salish and Kootenai native tribes. In other words: It's a terrible location for a massive proposed copper and silver mine.

Sometimes, I feel we are going back to the 1800's.
Our politicians, who are facilitating the destruction of our planet, will not be remembered well, in the history books.

Should we continue to be the laughing stock of the entire endustrialized world?
