    Default PEBBLE MINE: Alaska Supreme Court backs group fighting

    QUOTE:

    "In two unanimous decisions, the Alaska Supreme Court on Friday came down solidly on the side of a group fighting the proposed Pebble mine that includes two Alaska icons, former First Lady Bella Hammond and state constitutional convention delegate Vic Fischer.

    In one case overturning a 2011 Superior Court decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the state Department of Natural Resources was disposing of a public resource without any public notice or finding that it was managing land for the common good. The disposal was taking place through land and water use permits issued for “intensive mineral exploration on state land,” the justices said."

    Pebble said if the people in the area didn't want it they would just go away and the vote said go. I have found if you lie about one thing you will lie about other things as well and Pebble is a bunch of whiney liers
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    The thing I will always remember and just shake my head at, from the Pebble presentation I attended, was the description of "no net loss." They gave an example of a reclaimed mine site that was teeming with fish of all species; brought in from the local hatchery. Basically, a stocked gravel pit. They would replace the anadromous salmon and trout populations of American Creek, Moraine Creek, and others, famous world wide for their remote nature and beautiful, enormous native rainbow trout, with a stocked mine pit, and claim it as "no net loss." SMH. How they would replace the sockeye and other Pacific salmon runs from these streams, has yet to be defined.

    And here's a nearly 6 yr old video that brings all the talking points into "historical" perspective... a must watch!

    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..
