Tell Governor Steve Bullock that you don't want a mine on the headwaters of the Smith River!
Energy efficiency and conservation. This is not a “left” or “right” issue. It benefits everyone.
MEIC’s stand against coal, and its role in climate change. They take an uncompromised stance, and someone has to do it.

In July 2017, the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) declared Tintina Resources’ application for its proposed Black Butte mine on a tributary of the Smith River to be complete. But don’t despair or lose hope.
This recent action is only one step in a long process, and it does not mean that Tintina’s application has been approved. What it does mean is that DEQ believes that it has received all of the information required in order for it to make a decision about the mine’s permit. This step is loosely comparable to turning in your homework but not yet knowing what your grade will be.

The Washington utilities commission will ultimately decide whether to accept the agreement, but the agreement spells the beginning of the end for the plant.
