What a shame that groups like SEACC have absolutely no disincentive to pursue frivolous litigation. Our court system is clogged with this kind of useless activity. It's time that SEACC learns to realize the fight should be over. In the case of Kensington, the mine has shown me that it will be environmentally sound. The Army Corps, all the other federal and state agencies and the courts have agreed.
SEACC needs to quit trying to make Alaska revert back to pre-statehood population levels and go "save" some other Lower 48 state for a change.
