Put the Pressure on Sen. Mark Begich
Sen. Mark Begich cautiously weighed in on the revised draft in a Friday statement:
"While I remain opposed to a pre-emptive veto of this or any other project, an open, public process that answers Alaskans' questions and puts better science on the table is a good thing. I look forward to reviewing this assessment and hope it answers questions about whether this project can meet the high hurdle of developing a large-scale mine while protecting our renewable resources."
The EPA and scientists all over the world have spoken. It is time to hold our representatives accountable. Email Senator Mark Begich and let him know that Bristol Bay's wild salmon, wildlife, economy, and cultural heritage are too valuable for large-scale mining.
