But the proposed mines threaten more than this life-giving water. We can’t forget the massive trucks, dust, lights, and constant drone of a massive industrial machine blasting, crushing, sorting, and moving thousands of tons of waste rock 24 hours a day, 365 days a year–industrial activity planned on a mind-boggling scale that has never been done anywhere in the world without polluting the water.
Our jobs and our way of life are at risk, but we can move. The real tragedy is risking something that belongs to all of us. It is a resource that will continue to transform and nurture countless generations as long as we have the foresight to leave it alone, the foresight to say this place is too precious to risk, this place is worth more if it is left alone.
Together we can @savetheBWCA but we have to speak loudly so the call of the loon and the splash of our paddles are heard in the halls of congress and across the country. Please join the movement, now is the time to act.
