ALERT! Natural-Born Killer: Stop Scott Walkerís Open-Pit Mining Assault upon Wisconsinís Water

Water is LifeTAKE ACTION!

Governor Scott Walker is waging ecocide upon Wisconsinís environment to further his political ambitions, continuing his lifelong political opportunism at the expense of others. Walker signed a bill earlier this year gutting the stateís mining regulations, designed to clear the way for Gogebic Taconite to dig a massive open-pit iron mine in the Penokee Hills just south of Lake Superior. By strong-arming the Gogebic mine through Wisconsinís most important forest wilderness Ė sacred to native peoples and their water and wild rice, while threatening to foul Lake Superior and the other Great Lakes Ė Walker clearly demonstrates the contempt he holds for nature, truth, justice, and all that stands between him and power. Such callous treatment of the environment will lead to a brief boom for some, followed by a permanent bust of denuded lands and toxic waters, killing wildlife, plants, and future human generations. Please let the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource know the world expects a full environmental impact statement be carried out with the utmost scientific integrity, or for their resignation.
