On August 4, 2014 a huge mine tailings pond breached, releasing an estimated 14.5 million cubic meters of toxic solid and liquid mine wastes into the pristine waters of the Fraser River watershed in southeastern British Columbia. Imperial Metals, which runs the Mount Polley open pit copper and gold mine, applied for a permit to reopen the mine after the disaster. On April 1 (cruel joke), the Province of B.C. accepted the application to reopen the mine, leaving just one month for the public to comment.

Mauna Kea protests continue

program date: 
Thu, 04/23/2015
A four-week long protest which has halted construction of  the proposed TMT or Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea on the big island of Hawaii continues with several new developments this week.
On Tuesday activists took to the streets of Honolulu to bring their message to the centers of state and commercial power in the archipelago.
The thirty-meter telescope would be housed in a massive eighteen-story high structure atop the highest mountain in Hawaii.
It’s a project of the TMT Observatory Corporation, a joint venture of Institutions  from the United States, Canada, China, India and Japan.
There are already thirteen other telescopes sited on the mountain, which have also drawn opposition  from Native Hawaiians and environmentalists. 16:09 minutes (14.78 MB)
