wyrd thoughts: my other blog

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things...."

News and views about current affairs, religious freedom issues, and the fight against euthanasia. Also the latest about my cats, goats, sheep, geese and chickens, life in Menominee county, and whatever else is on my mind.

Website for preserving Men. River watershed


http://www.menomineeriver.com/

That's the new site.

This is the old site, they still have stuff there.

Although I'm not a rabid greenie who believes in a new ice age one minute and global warming the next at the decree of the enviro-popes, I really see no need for mining in an area where outdoor tourism and farming are such main stays of the economy.

We'll end up losing far more jobs than could be created. And the jobs will stay lost long after the mine closes down. No one wants to hunt and fish in a polluted area.

Leave the minerals where they are. If there are urgent shortages of minerals in the future, we can always mine them then--- when we perhaps will have far better mining methods.
