Subject: Call to Action: Stop Earthworks’ Assault on the Mining Industry
An environmental NGO is targeting the mining industry once again with a misinformation campaign that aims to over-regulate the industry. In a week-long call to action, Earthworks, rang out to its fan base urging them to contact the White House, EPA, and the Army Corps of Engineers to close so-called “loopholes” regarding the disposal of mining waste. The tactic wrongly states that mining companies may “freely dispose of their waste in rivers, streams, wetlands and lakes.” They even attached a “fact sheet” that was , you guessed it, short of facts.
Here is how you can help:
Please encourage your readers to call or send letters to counter this assault on America’s energy independence!
