Weekly Post, NO PEBBLE MINE: Pictures from Ground Zero by Robert Glenn Ketchum

NO PEBBLE MINE Pictures from Ground Zero
by Robert Glenn Ketchum

 
Since 1998, I have been working to protect the spectacular resources of southwest Alaska and the fishery of Bristol Bay. Two Aperture books, a national traveling exhibition, a massive coalition of concerned users, and a lot of personal lobbying, had it looking like we were almost there. Then Donald Trump took office claiming he would always put America, and American jobs first. SO WHY destroy a BILLION-dollar-a-year, RENEWABLE salmon fishery and over 100,000 jobs for a group of international mineral speculators that will leave us with a Superfund site to clean up, and NO fishery left edible? And yet, he did,..so please, keep saying NO TO THE PEBBLE MINE!

NO PEBBLE MINE , Pictures from Ground Zero
NO PEBBLE MINE #425:
I spend a considerable amount of the day wandering in the weeds, and given the results (this, and last three posts) it has been a much better thing to do than to stay in my room at the inn and watch TV. Around midday the rain turned to a drizzle, and now in late afternoon, the rain has stopped entirely. The dense fog has lifted, and there is a gentle breeze coming in from the Pacific. The skies overhead still look dark and stormy, but it feels like this spate of weather has passed, and I am thinking that air transportation will resume tomorrow, so likely I will be headed home to LA. With that thought in mind, and the chill of the evening settling in on me, I call it a day, head back to the inn, switch out of my damp clothes, and walk to The Muddy Rudder restaurant for one last dinner pig-out. It is one, so stuffed on giant pork chops, I take one last walk about town, before turning in.
