EPA: Stop the Pebble Mine!

    1. Sponsored by

      Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

Global mining companies want to gouge North America’s biggest, open-pit gold and copper mine out of the spectacular wilderness above Alaska’s Bristol Bay. A long-awaited study by the Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that the Pebble Mine — and its estimated 10 billion tons of mining waste — would pose catastrophic risks to Bristol Bay, along with its legendary salmon runs, its abundant wildlife and its Native communities.

The mining giants have already spent $100 million on this scheme. They are fighting back hard, attacking the EPA and pressuring the White House. The time has come for the EPA to exercise its authority under the Clean Water Act and stop this disastrous mega-mine.

Make your voice heard immediately. Sign the petition to the EPA, calling on the agency to save this national treasure by prohibiting the Pebble Mine!

      Momentary profit is not worth destroying what took nature millions of years to build.

      The area is so valuable just as it is. Destroying it, or risking the destruction endangers salmon and other animals.

      Too little pristine wilderness is left. Too much has been raped for riches. Riches which, in the end are worthless to the spirit of man.

      The impact on the area and the environment is too great with the potential for permanent damage to a pristine area
