Donald Jackass Trump has once again proven himself to be a complete jackass.

His corrupted EPA, filled with industry cronies, has approved the Pebble Mine project in Alaska's Bristol Bay wilderness. This will be a massive open pit gold mine which will threaten the existence of one of Alaska's largest salmon fisheries. He is trading an environmental resource with an incalculable multi-generational value for a few gold trinkets and temporary profits. The Pebble Mine will irreversibly scar and poison the land and water turning a pristine wilderness into a toxic wasteland. little donny, in his incompetence and corruption, is nothing less than an environmental terrorist!

"Pebble Mine, which would become an open pit the size of 460 football fields at the headwaters of Bristol Bay, has long been opposed by environmentalists and the commercial fishing industry."

"In a scientific review conducted under the Obama administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that the mine could result in "significant and unacceptable adverse effects" on fishery areas and ecologically important streams, wetlands, lakes and ponds.

Under the current proposal, development of the mine would destroy more than 2,000 acres of wetlands and more than 100 miles of streams.

Tailings from the mine would be heaped across 2,800 acres behind dams extending more than 10 miles. In a region that averages 50 inches of rain a year, the challenge would be to ensure that tainted water never reached Bristol Bay."

Army Corps of Engineers Denies Permit To Controversial Alaska Gold Mine
November 25, 2020 5:19 PM ET

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied a permit for the massive Pebble Mine project in Alaska – a proposed open-pit copper and gold mine that would be upstream from the world's largest sockeye salmon fishery.

The Corps said in a statement Wednesday that it has determined that the plan "does not comply with Clean Water Act guidelines" and it had concluded that "the proposed project is contrary to the public interest."

Fishermen and tribes have been fighting the mine proposal upstream of Bristol Bay for a decade, fearing it would harm the wild sockeye salmon at the heart of the area's economy and indigenous culture.
