Pebble Mine

I've worked on a commercial fishing boat and have awsome friends who fish down in the Bristol Bay area this mine shouldn't happen! Fishing is such a big deal in Alaska and is a way of life that is more important than copper or gold. Fish are a renewable resource but the habitat they need to survive in is not, once we screw up the watershed for the fish we won't be able to put it back to how it was. apparently this is just a teaser for a movie but in it's shortness it shows the way of life in Alaska that doesn't need to be disturbed by a giant mine whether or not it breaks world records or how much money it makes. Most Alaskans don't care about that stuff anyhow, the man at 2:48 has the greatest quote I've ever heard! Stop Pebble Mine!
