EPA Leaders From Past GOP Administrations Slam Proposed Pebble Mine In Alaska

Three former administrators of the Environmental Protection Agency slammed a proposal to open a gold and copper mine in the heart of an Alaska salmon fishery, saying the project could devastate natural ecosystems and imperil a multibillion-dollar industry.

William Ruckelshaus, William Reilly and Christine Todd Whitman ― all former heads of the EPA under Republican presidents ― joined former Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt in signing a letter published in The Washington Post on Tuesday. In the letter, they voiced their opposition to the controversial Pebble Mine near Alaska’s Bristol Bay.
