NO PEBBLE MINE Pictures From Ground Zero by Robert Glenn Ketchum
Since 1998, I have been working to protect southeast Alaska, and the fishery of Bristol Bay. The fishery is an annually renewable, BILLION-dollar-a-year industry that employs thousands and thousands of workers in multiple states. 2021 provided the largest commercial salmon catch in history (64-million+). There is no intelligent reason to allow the proposed development of the Pebble mine to go forward and imperil these resources. The United Tribes of Bristol Bay, the United Fishermen of Alaska, Trout Unlimited, Trustees For Alaska, and the Natural Resources Defense Council, all oppose the development. Even Alaskan Senator, Lisa Murkowski, has stated her opposition. The momentum is building. Now is the time to SAY NO TO THE PEBBLE MINE permanently!

NO PEBBLE MINE #549:
The Wood Mountains had hundreds of glaciers fifty years ago, but the warming climate has melted most of them away. Clearly the one seen here is in retreat, but seeing one at all is a rarity. That meltwater pool is certainly a colorful spectacle.
