Call on President Obama to Stop the Pebble Mine!

The EPA has determined that the Pebble Mine would spell disaster for Alaska’s Bristol Bay — its legendary salmon runs, its pristine environment and its Native communities. Please make your own voice heard at the White House immediately.

Call on President Obama to save this national treasure by directing his EPA to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to stop the Pebble Mine!

Direct EPA to stop the Pebble Mine

To President Obama:

I call on you to protect the environment and the people of Bristol Bay, Alaska from global mining companies and their reckless plans for the Pebble Mine.

Their colossal gold and copper operation would generate an estimated ten billion tons of waste and devastate the world's greatest wild salmon runs, which are the lynchpin of a spectacular American ecosystem and the generator of 14,000 jobs and $480 million in annual revenue. More than 80 percent of Bristol Bay residents -- including its Native peoples and commercial fishermen -- oppose this monstrous project and have asked your Environmental Protection Agency to stop the mine.

In response, EPA conducted a comprehensive study, which confirms that the Pebble Mine would pose "catastrophic" risks to this irreplaceable natural treasure.

I urge you to act swiftly and decisively on those findings. Please direct your EPA to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to stop the Pebble Mine.

I know your administration is under intense pressure from the mining lobby to let this multi-billion-dollar scheme proceed. For the sake of this and all future generations of Americans, please stand up to them and reject this assault on our natural heritage. By doing so, you will secure a lasting environmental legacy for your administration.

Sincerely,
