    Just signed it In the absence of time to do more research on the proposed drilling, I'll err on the side of caution.

    That being said, we ALL are dependant on mined energy sources of oil, natural gas, and coal; and while we continue to work towards cleaner sources of energy, society will be dependant on mined energy sources for quite a while. Therefore, continued energy resource extraction MUST be done for the foreseeable future.

    I will be the first to say that mining should be done in the most environmentally sensitive way possible, and I would be against mining specifically in carnivorous plant habitat or other sensitive habitat, but we cannot say no to ALL energy mining.

    All projects of this type are required to produce an environmental impact statement, where impact to sensitive areas and sensitive species is taken into account. While these are never perfect, it is quite possible that sensitive areas, including carnivorous plant habitat, may not be impacted significantly at all by this mining project. Wetland areas are almost always of specific concern and garner a lot of attention when considering mining projects, especially on public land (private land is a whole other monster..., and much less regulated). Just something to keep in mind when these things come up. Does anyone else know more specifics about this project? Again, I wish I had the time to look up the specifics on the mining project (if available to the public online), but I have to get back to studying...

    I'm studying wildlife and wildlands conservation, so this subject is right up my alley

    I dont think theres an environmentally sensitive way to mine.
