The Mining deal may be off the shelf for Scott Walker but lets not forget that he and his GOP cronies are not fans of the EPA (Environmental protection Agency) Meaning for Wisconsinites that your wonderful natural resources that make Wisconsin such a wonderful place to live are up for sale in what has been called the governors "pay to play" plan that will sell off WI resources on the cheap to what ever large (OUT OF STATE ) Corporation coughs up the cash quickest. Sure they do create some jobs I will not deny that but those jobs only last as long as a Mine produces or the Natural gas is fracked and used up then all that is left is a bunch of people out of work again and a chunk of land polluted and useless for the next couple of generations. The Tourist industry is the better bet at least is sustainable and creates thousands of jobs over the whole of the state.
I would like to end this with a quote from The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (the most comprehensive examination of the state of the ecosphere ever undertaken) " At the heart of this assessment is a stark warning. Human activity is putting such a strain on the natural functions of the Earth that the ability of the planet's ecosystems to sustain future generations can no longer be taken for granted" I honestly do not know why people are not getting this ,we just can not sit idlely by and let greedy Corporate thugs use our Planet like toilet paper and we can start with our own State . "Oh I guess we did , thats why Scott Walker has been recalled".
