"Former Republican EPA Chiefs Blast Controversial Alaska Mining Project"

"Three former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrators who served under Republican presidents came out against a proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska on Tuesday.

In a full-page advertisement in The Washington Post, the former officials called the project 'the wrong mine in absolutely the wrong place,' and said that as the Trump administration’s EPA considers the project, 'the answer is no.'

'The choice is simple,' the administrators wrote in the advertisement. 'Protect the greatest salmon fishery on the planet. Protect Alaskans and the Bristol Bay watershed.'"
