Boundary Waters Area Threatened with Destruction

This is a must see for anyone who paddles, or hikes, or camps, or appreciates the Boundary Waters area in the United States and Canada. This pristine wilderness is under dire threat from foreign mining interests. The mining processes which are being proposed, and for which this environenmentally sensitive area is currently being surveyed, would unleash unstoppable deadly floods of sulfuric acid onto the landscape and into the waters. Areas in the United States which are currently being surveyed include primarily upper Minnestoa and Wisconsin. Wild river areas, the Great Lakes, and the St. Lawrence Seaway will be directly impacted. Millions of dollars have been spent by foreign interests to influence legislators from the area to allow this destruction. Please view the video, which is enclosed in this blog, from Paddle to D.C., put together for the purpose of alerting everyone to this danger.
