Wow, even Don Jr. opposes the giant mine in fat bear country
The opposition to a giant mine in the heart of Alaska’s Bristol Bay — a land teeming with fat bears and the world’s largest run of sockeye salmon — is formidable.
Ecologists, bear biologists, Bristol Bay locals, tribes, the majority of Alaskans, and the Obama Administration’s EPA have opposed the plan to build a colossal mining district in the region’s watershed. They’ve now been joined by an odd bedfellow, the conservative, left-bashing Donald Trump Jr., who recently posted a misleading, far-right video on Twitter about an unproven coronavirus drug and shoots megafauna as a hobby.
Trump Jr. tweeted on Tuesday that “As a sportsman who has spent plenty of time in the area I agree 100%. The headwaters of Bristol Bay and the surrounding fishery are too unique and fragile to take any chances with.”
On untrammeled wetlands brimming with streams, the mine would require the construction of a major transportation corridor, multiple power stations, a 188-mile gas pipeline, wastewater treatment plants, and a new port, along with a mine itself that could be some 2,000 feet deep.
