The Latest Buzz on Pebble and Elwha

Saw a couple things from our friends on Moldy Chum that I thought I would pass along to get the word out.

First, the great conservationist Yvon Chouinard, speaks at the Elwha Science Symposium. Here's a video:

 Secondly, here is some Pro-Pebble donkey doo from a writer in the Washington Examiner.

Alaska Natives ask EPA to stop Threatening their economy.

And more from a Pro-Pebble Group called Resourceful Earth:

Resourceful Earth

This tasteful article colorfully blasts groups like Trout Unlimited and Earth Works for their "negative" propaganda campaign against Pebble. Good stuff.

Anyway, if you want to join the fight against Pebble here are some sites you can visit:

Trout Unlimited
Save Bristol Bay

Thanks again to Moldy Chum for spreading the word.

Until next time.

Elwha River Restoration Update

There has been a lawsuit filed to stop the Elwha River hatchery. Since this quite a hot topic, I will go the unbiased route and allow you to read the article and watch the video involving the lawsuit and an article from the Times that allows for both sides to voice opinions.

There is evidence that if left alone the wild fish would rebuild themselves (as seen on the Sandy River in Oregon). Anyway. Here ya go.

First the information on the lawsuit:

An article from the Seattle Times that gives both sides a voice:
Elwha River Hatchery Proposal

The dam removal was only the first step. If you wish to support the groups behind the lawsuit there is information how in the press release.
