It's Me!!

I'm going to try and make this blog nonpolitical, the best I can. I am interested in many more things other then politics and this is where I'll include that stuff. I am going to make this blog the place to catch up on how the family and I are doing and what's on my mind other then politics. It's gonna be hard, so don't be surprised if I rant from time to time. Oh and my creations are mine, if you wanna copy them get permission. Copyright belongs to me.

More Sulfide Mining Factoids

Kennecott's mine in Alaska, called the Greens Creek Mine, has violated the Clean Water Act 391 times according to the EPA Fact Sheet for Permit No. Ak-0043206, 1998.
During operations in Wisconsin at the Flambeau Mine the discharge from the mine far exceeded groundwater standards. That was taken from the Enviromental Mining Coalition Report.
Kennecott does not respect it's workers.. "We can only conclude that this company has excercised targeted retaliation against union members and union-represented workers for excercising their legal and constitutional rights..." Leo Gerard, International President of the United Steelworkers Association.
Studies show that communities that rely on mining see worsened income, unemployment rates and poverty once a mine closes. This especially holds true in the Great Lakes Region. The mine only wants to operate for 5-7 years. The outlook is bleak.
Kennecott stay the Hell out of my UP!!!!!!!!!
