The Myth of "Monitoring in Perpetuity" 

Donald Schweitzer calls bullshit on the Pebble Partnership's claim that they can monitor their toxic mining waste in perpetuity. Schweitzer's credentials? He is a former tenured senior scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory with more than 20 years of experience at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Department of Energy,

I would have thought it the epitome of obscene chutzpah on the part of the Pebble staff to believe you can convince enough people that human monitors will hang around forever just to keep returning runaway mine tailings to their source. The great tragedy is that people actually seem to be persuaded by this dreck.
