Quotes

...the Auditor General responds that DEP has a narrow interpretation of the term hydraulic fracturing and that DEP should post information regarding "every credible case of subterranean water supply contamination from any oil and gas related sources whatsoever." Information is not transparent to the public
...We limit the smog, soot and mercury pollution from power plants. It’s time to do that for carbon pollution as well.” "Protect our natural resources for our health and future generations. Join me and take action."
"Federal and state EPA officials had to wait five days before they were given a full list of the fracking chemicals" used at the site by Halliburton...
...Joel Reynolds, Western Director and Senior Attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, issued the following statement: "EPA’s action today is an essential response to the inevitable devastation that would be caused by the Pebble Mine. The agency’s proposal is measured, solidly grounded in science, and directly responsive to the overwhelming local opposition to the project. The head of the watershed of the greatest salmon fishery on the planet is no place to gamble on one of the largest mining operations ever conceived. It is simply the wrong mine in the wrong place -- as Mitsubishi realized in 2011, as Anglo-American realized last September, and as Rio Tinto recognized in April. “NRDC and its members commend EPA for responding to the repeated and urgent requests of the tribes and communities of Bristol Bay to use its legal authority under the federal Clean Water Act to protect them and their communities, the wild salmon and other natural resources of the region, and their way of life. We strongly support today’s proposal and urge that it be adopted.” "Protect our natural resources for our health and future generations. Join me and take action.""
