Tell Governor Walz: Move on from PolyMet
PolyMet’s four major permits (permit to mine, water pollution, air pollution, and wetlands destruction) have all been suspended, remanded, or reversed by the courts. PolyMet is a bad investment for Minnesota’s environment, taxpayers, and downstream communities. It’s time to tell Governor Walz to move on and set a better course for Minnesota.

“This continued mining extraction industry always leaves people hurting. Historically it’s been indigenous communities. Our concern is the potential for danger to the next generations. We’re looking out for not only our children, but the children of all peoples.” – Ricky Defoe, Chippewa Elder and WaterLegacy Board Member
“I was 95% sure PolyMet would happen. Well, you and your partners have forced a recalculation of those odds. Of course, the battle is not over, but the recent legal victories are huge, and I couldn’t imagine them a decade ago. I’m delighted and heartened that our donations are so effectively deployed. Thank you!” – Peter Leschak
