Here is another excellent article in a national publication on the proposed Pebble Mine. This piece, by Rosanne Pagano, takes an in depth look at the history of the project, the economic drivers of the region, the current opinion of locals, and the threat that the mine could bring to Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks. In my opinion, it's imperative, particularly in this down economy, to protect sustainable jobs and industries in rural Alaska. Please help us prevent the Bristol Bay region from falling into the entrapment of a boom and bust economy - this sensitive area needs managed and measured economic growth opportunities, one of which is tourism.
