If you think this report is bad, just wait until the data about how much contaminant was spilled from fracking operations in the area. You have some seriously bad chemicals involved in those operations that are held in holding tanks at the drill sites that were compromised. Turning this local, with recent examples of biblical type flooding in areas not normally seeing this amount of rain, why would we expect this to not happen in northern MN in the proposed mining operations areas? Why chance it, just so a few people can benefit from the destruction of our land?
