Governor Scott Walker is waging ecocide upon Wisconsin's environment to further his political ambitions, continuing his lifelong political opportunism at the expense of others. Walker signed a bill earlier this year gutting the state's mining regulations, designed to clear the way for Gogebic Taconite to dig a massive open-pit iron mine in the Penokee Hills just south of Lake Superior. By strong-arming the Gogebic mine through Wisconsin's most important forest wilderness – sacred to native peoples and their water and wild rice, while threatening to foul Lake Superior and the other Great Lakes – Walker clearly demonstrates the contempt he holds for nature, truth, justice, and all that stands between him and power. Such callous treatment of the environment will lead to a brief boom for some, followed by a permanent bust of denuded lands and toxic waters, killing wildlife, plants, and future human generations. Please let the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource know the world expects a full environmental impact statement be carried out with the utmost scientific integrity, or for their resignation.
