No more phosphate strip mining in Florida

Action: Stop Pollution

July 8, 2016   Action Alert ID# 396

 

Phosphate mining is one of the most destructive practices on Earth -- a brutal process that completely destroys landscapes and leaves behind 200-foot-tall, radioactive waste piles.

That's why the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must reject a permit for an additional 7,500 acres of phosphate mining in central Florida. The area is full of beautiful wetlands and farmlands -- cherished by people and used by wildlife. It is not a sacrifice zone.

Over the past 100 years, phosphate mining has irreversibly harmed countless acres of Florida habitat -- in fact the EPA recently required Mosaic (the largest phosphate mining company in Florida) to set aside funds to address its radioactive waste piles. But that action didn't halt Mosaic's plans; the company wants to dig up even more land to produce fertilizer.

Tell your elected officials to do everything in their power to end the blight of phosphate mining in Florida; urge the Corps to deny the project permit.
