Letter: Pebble will leave a toxic mess needing to be managed forever

The Compass article in Saturday’s (Oct. 5) ADN is just another very weak plea by a politician to “Let the Permit Process Unfold.” Cannot some people realize that this “Proposed Project” to produce gold,  copper, et al — and fabulous “high paying jobs — is ultimately a temporary situation. The jobs will soon disappear, leaving a destroyed way of life and an impossibly ugly toxic mess that must be “managed” not for just a while — but  forever! What would these politicos say if another “Firecracker — Nuclear Harbor” project were proposed — oh yeah, let’s try that too.

 Some ideas are simply to dangerous to undertake. No to Pebble.
