The Tia Maria mine is a large copper mine located in the south of Peru in Moquegua Region. The project is operated by Southern Copper Corporation with Newmont Mining Corporation owning a share. In 2011, there were protests against the project which led to the death of three people. Concern about the impact on agriculture led the project to be put on hold. A revised Environmental Impact Assessment by Geoservice Ingeniería for Southern Copper Corporation was approved in August, 2014. The construction permit is pending. A new round of farmer-led protests began in March 2015 and have already taken five lives in more than 60 days of regional strikes. On May 23 the state proclaimed a state of emergency for Islay province, in the south of the country. Farmers fear the project will contaminate the River Tambo vital for their rice crops.

Oak Flat Copper Mining Conflict; Arizona, U.S., Feb-March 2015

Oak Flat Copper Mining Conflict; Arizona, U.S., Feb-March 2015

Taken on 2015-03-18

About 100 miles north of Tucson, Resolution Copper Mining wants to build a mine in Superior, a town of 2,800 people, that could yield 1 billion pounds of copper a year. The land Resolution wants includes the 760-acre Oak Flat Withdrawal Area, which was deemed off-limits to future mining by a 1955 land order signed by President Dwight Eisenhower. The bill would overturn that order. The mine would devastate the surface of Oak Flat, an area sacred to Apache tribes. It’s an ancestral home for several clans of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, some of whom are protesting the development.

Algae Bloom on Lake Erie

Algae Bloom on Lake Erie

Taken on 2014-08-03

For at least fifty years, phytoplankton and algae blooms have been a regular occurrence in summer on Lake Erie. The dominant organism in the Lake Erie bloom is Microcystis spp., a type of freshwater blue-green algae that produces a toxin harmful to humans. On August 2, 2014, environmental monitors for Toledo and surrounding towns in northwestern Ohio determined that public water supplies had levels of microcystin toxin that were higher than recommended by the World Health Organization. They warned residents not to drink or cook with tap water; boiling is not effective against the toxin. Though the bloom has continued, treatment facilities have since added extra filtering steps (including activated carbon), and public water sources were declared safe again on August 4. Blooms of microcystis and other species of phytoplankton occur almost every summer on Lake Erie, where chemical nutrients (mainly phosphorous and nitrogen) are plentiful due to decades of runoff from farms and cities.
