STOP PEBBLE MINE!
13 February, 2009
On one hand, the mining industry employs 5,500 people and generates $200 million in tax revenues. It is based on a finite resource that will one day be exhausted. On the other hand, the Salmon Fishing industry in Bristol Bay, Alaska employs 12,000 people and contributes $250 million to the economy. This industry is based on a sustainably managed renewable resource that will be around long after the last ton of ore is dug out of Pebble Mine. Many of you already know that the 2009 salmon season (as with the 2008 season) SOUTH OF THE CANADIAN BORDER will not take place. This is not due to overfishing, but a century of logging, damming, mining and use of agricultural chemicals. For more info visit www.pebbleminealaska.com
