I hope this gets shot down..

An Alabama company is planning to strip mine for titanium and other heavy minerals in an area of Charlton County bordering the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, an idea that the DuPont Co. abandoned in the late 1990s after government and public outcry against it.

Sadly, it's a different world now at the EPA and the Interior Department. They are gutting the agencies, and letting donors and corporate interests run roughshod over any protections that were in place.

This is a park above parks. I have been there. It is completely intact as the article says. Some things are priceless or should be. I urge everyone to write a quick email to your local politicians and Michael Lusk at US FWS. I mean " National Geographic named one of the 100 most beautiful places on the planet." that is quite a distinction and it's right in our own back yard. This is one of those things where they say there won't be impact and if that was true, ok, but water moves and it's connected so there will be definitely be impact no matter what DuPont does.

I'm guessing Senator Johnny Isakson, Purdue is worthless. He's totally on board with whatever the Administration and the energy companies want.

I consider him to be completely clueless as to what the majority of his constituents want, and simply could care less even if he did. He is a major contributor to the 'Swamp' in DC being fuller than ever.

Thanks jmatl. all true. Buddy Carter up here is a loser as well, a complete tool. Says he supported the local counties against the offshore drilling then he goes ahead and does a 180 when it comes to vote. Sad thing is if the companies did mining or oil right, and safe, I would be ok with it. But they almost never do. Can't be trusted. They ruined it for themselves. I will send Isakson a letter. We'll see. He lives close to the area and he knows what a great coast and pristine area we are blessed with and its contribution to the economy (more than the temporary boost some one time mineral extraction would give) and he may see the light.
