Pebble Has Rocks in Head
Behold the latest gripe from the Pebble Partnership about the oh-so-restrictive permitting process required to put the largest open pit copper and gold mine on the planet at the headwaters of the planet’s largest wild salmon fishery. The project requires permits for lots of things. It pays to be assured someone knows what they’re doing when they have to build 700 foot tall earthen dams that will last forever in a highly active seismic zone, holding back giant lakes of poison from a thriving fishery. You know, stuff like that.
Check out the latest.
We know they’d like to compare themselves to rocket scientists, but will someone tell the Pebble Partnership that the one weensy problem with their little analogy of outrage is that there aren’t any people on Mars? Not even little green ones. Nor any salmon, as far as we can tell.
See? This is Mars.
This is the proposed site of Pebble Mine in Alaksa.
This is a little green man from Mars. (not real)
This is a little green fish from Bristol Bay. (real)
It’s kind of fun to watch the gyrations of dimwitted social media lackeys when they work for the wrong side. So yes, Pebble Mine – it’s more complicated to get permission to screw up the planet we inhabit than the dusty lifeless one next door. And that’s a good thing.
