 Mike Wiggins explains the threat to us all when corporations discredit career scientists whose whole professional careers have focused on examining the characteristics of the land forms, the minerals, the ecology of a certain section of our planet. In this case, the Penokee Region. The iron-mining company is claiming it knows more and has better scientists than the ones who have been focusing on the region their whole professional lives! Listen to Mike explain what is at stake with the disinformation pouring out or Gogebic's corporate expressions: The region is being put a risk by a campaign of lies: Thanks for watching and learning!

What is the threat of the KXL Pipeline to those whose land it crosses, whose land it borders, whose watershed it will destroy if it has a leak?  Listen to the remarkable Faith Spotted Eagle as she testifies to the State Department, April 18, 2013. This is not 'old news', it is the reason for the Cowboys and Indians encampment on the Capitol Mall, Washington,D.C. this week, April 22 through May 1st, 2014. Faith Spotted Eagle whom you will see testifying to the State Department was present at the RejectProtect.org Cowboys and Indians encampment on the Capitol Mall. She is a principal non-violent protester and stateswoman representing the spirit of the group bringing their heartfelt protest to the White House. After the YouTube video excerpt of her speech, please wait a moment.

    Faith Spotted Eagle’s testimony to the State Department about the KXL pipeline’s threat to the precious lands and watershed region depended upon by millions of people, including invading the sovereign lands given by treaty to tribes all along the watershed. I stand with Faith in protest to the KXL.
