Bristol Bay in Alaska Threatened by Trump White House

The headwaters of the great salmon runs of southwestern Alaska are under threat from the foreign owned Pebble Mine which will destroy huge pristine areas with a massive gold mining operation. In return for $300 billion in profits the mine's stakeholders will destroy the salmon fisheries and the jobs and culture of thousands of indigenous people as well as the local commercial fishing industry. The project is opposed by the people of Alaska but supported by the Alaska state government. The EPA had been suing the mine to block the permit process, but Trump's EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, a well known pro-industry hack who wants to destroy the EPA, has settled the case allowing the permit process to begin. Hear the story on Trump Watch with Paul DeRienzo.

She also leads our work to protect beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska. More info

As the James Comey hears unfold we look at the story behind the story of Trump and Russia
