Two weeks ago, I was in Arizona and saw for myself what open pit mining does to the land.

Anyone in Maine who supports this practice should be required to visit that state.

The trucks used in those mines can move 300 tons in one load. The waste material will never be fertile in our lifetime. Don’t let this happen in Maine.
