(No)- The destructive ambition by the state of Alaska for London and Vancouver, should consider the citizenship of its regional nationality and Anchorage before they exploit and dispose of the Bristol Bay and the sea.
Selective discrimination; Alaska, let london and Vancouver have Alaska, the mine, public lands, water, sea. Let the Alaskans eat cake, squirrel or whatever Europeans eat.

AFTER SETBACK IN LAND DISPUTE
Heald Point: Oengas fight oil giant over rent
for use of their land.

BP shut down a small portion of the Prudhoe Bay oil field last week after a judge ruled that federal regulators failed for years to get approval from the Inupiat Family that owns the land.
The Native Family, which has battled lawyers for the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs and BP in federal court over the oil production from its land.
The Oenga Family is owed millions in unpaid rent because the BIA improperly allowed BP to tap three offshore oil deposits from the family's allotment on the northern edge of the vast Prudhoe oil field.
A week ago, the BIA told BP to shut down production from Prudhoe's Raven unit, the only one of the three disputed offshore deposits that BP was still accessing from the allotment. BP shut down Raven, which produced about 25,000 barrels of oil in November, on Friday. BP is still legally tapping the Niakuk from the allotment.

BIA and BP pulled a fast one on the Oenga family. Where is the honor to your Alaska country allotments and to the taxpayer? is Alaska a 'welfare' state for the wealthy? will pebble mine rip-off Bristol Bay?

Peter Lehner, Executive Director NRDC-It's the worst possible nightmare for Alaskan wilderness.

A 2,000-foot-deep-open-pit gold and copper mine stretching over two miles long. Colossal earthern dams up to 50 stories high--
built in a known earthquake zone--which are supposed to hold back some ten billion tons of mining waste mixed with cyanide, sulfuric acid, arsenic, and other toxic chemicals.

You see, the companies behind the Pebble Mine include some of the world's most powerful corporations: Britain's Anglo American and Rio Tinto, Canada's Northern Dynasty Minerals, and Japan's Mitsubishi Corporation.

The mine would be absolutely HUGH in scale: with a gaping pit wide enough to line up nine of the world's longest cruise ships and deep enough to swallow the Empire State Building.

In the event of a quake, billions of tons of contaminated waste could be released into the streams and habitats of Bristol Bay. But it wouldn't even take such a massive release to irreparably damage this unspoiled ecosystem.

Sacrificing this living heritage in order to enrich a few foreign corporations would be an absolute travesty--one that no American should tolerate.

Mitsubishi and Rio Tinto hold big stakes in the Canadian company Northern Dynasty Minerals, which is actually planning the Pebble Mine in partnership with Britain's Anglo American. Northern Dynasty has acknowledged in its annual report that "unexpected environmental damage from spills, accidents and severe acts of nature such as earthquakes are risks. It also boasted that "Northern Dynasty's management may not be subject to U.S, Legal Process."

This is a destructive and hostile act to the culture of Alaska, a disregard for your life and land.
Are you going to live through the careless corruption, the threatening evasion by the temporary colonist, with the toxic waste to evade and breakdown Alaska?

APOLOGY? Group says its just defending the laws of Alaska.

Published: December 10th, 2010 02:21 PM.

"In his 20-minute speech to the Resource Development Council on Nov. 18, Shively brought up the lawsuit and accused Trustees of Alaska of finding "a few disgruntled people" to help them engage in what he described as legal terrorism."

"Shively said more than 30 million pages of documents have been requested."

"What they have done here is what I call 'legal terrorism', he said."-

Probably, Shively thinks that freebooting gold to eliminate Alaska to meet the needs of the colony, with his toxic waste, his obsessive abuse to piling on pollution, toxic waste, so he and his colony can wallow in their luxury ways of life? By the devastation to the Alaska land, sea and water, isn't considered 'terrorism'?.

JUDGE WON'T FORCE EXXON TO PAY FOR FURTHER OIL SPILL CLEANUP.

1989 OIL SPILL: Holland urges parties to
complete studies.
By SEAN COCKERHAM
[email protected]
Published: March 8th, 2011 04:17 PM

"Alaska U.S. District Court Judge H. Russel Holland ruled Monday against a request that he force Exxon mobil Corp. to pay for the cleanup of oil left on the Prince William Sound
shoreline from the 1989 tanker Valdez spill".

"The request came from former University of Alaska marine science professor Rick Steiner, who filed a court motion to try and force resolution of the case. Steiner said he was frustrated because the state and federal governments filed a $92 million claim against Exxon in 2006 but never tried to collect the money."

"Steiner, an ocean activist who was involved in cleanup of the spill, argued at Friday's court hearing that the judge should force Exxon to pay the money immediately with interest, along with criminal fines. The judge ruled that Steiner didn't have standing to try and force a resolution, and declined to do so himself."-

(Do the Alaskans on the Prince William Sound "have standing" to support Steiner?)

"Government lawyers said they're waiting for studies on the remaining oil and the effectiveness of cleanup techniques before pursuing the claim against Exxon. The oil company, meanwhile, says it doesn't have any obligation to pay."

"Exxon says there's little oil remaining and it doesn't owe any more money."

"Judge Holland last week expressed dissatisfaction with how long the case is taking, saying "it really is time to put this whole thing to bed."-

Baby Dolphins Found Dead on Gulf Coast.

A tide of dead infant dolphins has washed ashore along a 100-mile stretch of the Alabama and Mississippi Coastlines in the past two weeks and marine experts today said they believe last summer's Gulf oil spill may be to blame.

A total of 24 of the young dolphins been found dead in the last couple weeks, including five in the past 24 hours.

Marine mammal researchers fear it will only get worse.

Los Angeles Times/Local-

Toxin Found In Dead Sardines
Scientists still say low oxygen levels caused the massive fish die-off but suggest domoic acid could have caused them to swim into King Harbor.

Sardines that suffocated and died en masse this week in King Harbor have tested positive for a powerful neurotoxin that scientists believe may have distress 1 million or more fish off the Los Angeles coastlines and caused them to swim chaotically into the Redondo Beach marina.

Wikipedia: Domoic acid: The increasing frequency and geographic extent of toxic algal blooms along populated coastlines is generally attributed to human activities.

Why?-

1. Dead baby dolphines
2. 1 million or more dead fish.
3.?

Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You Speech:
Inaugural Address by John F. Kennedy-January 20, 1961:

"We pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away, merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny."

"Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request:
That both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction."

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you- ask what you can do for your country."
