Oil painting The Road to Extinction by Bernard Scanlan

The Road to Extinction

The proponents of the Polymet Mining Project and the Enbridge Pipeline claim that water quality will not be impacted by oil leaks into the ground waters, lakes, and rivers. It is already a fact the wild rice beds will be destroyed in the St. Louis River tributaries near Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters canoe Area. And as always, there is a loss of habitat and life for the fish, amphibians, and birds. 22 X 22 framed under plexiglass; acrylic on newspaper.
