“When the people lead, the leaders will follow.” – Rep. Alice Hausman
Most people in Minnesota do not even know about PolyMet, Twin Metals and other sulfide mining proposals in northern Minnesota. And yet major decisions about being made as exploration occurs, mine proposals are developed, and environmental review conducted.
Minnesotans need to learn the truth about sulfide mining and make their feelings about the issue known to decision-makers. Many leaders don’t know the whole story about the potential negative impacts of mining, nor do they grasp the level of concern from people who care about protecting our clean water and wilderness.
It is time for Minnesotans who care about the future of our lakes, rivers, streams and wilderness to speak up and ensure short-term thinking does not lead to long-term pollution.
