Thanks for that. I see the tame troll is still snapping at your ankles. I must say he has an amazing talent for ignoring what he doesn't want to see. I seem to remember you saying in your post that the article was from 2013, so no na attempt t mislead the public.
No need to worry about BEM's application being refused for not providing information. I've already responded to the demand for information as to how the development will impact on the Laponia World Heritage site.
Dear sirs, In answer to your question. It won't, It's umpteen kilometres away.
Sounds good re birdies, not so much the housework.
Another day closer to our pivotal decision. We must remain positive, and we have no reason not to, based on the information we've been officially given. Kurt is confident, so we must just wait and see now.
Your are right in that the Breca troll is not worth a direct response, that's what people like him feed on. So I'm doing as Aunt Suzt told me and just posting some positive stuff to balance his lies and half truths. What he really needs as he is in the USA is to visit the nearest burger joint and buy himself a reality burger.
There was a bit of scaremongering a while ago about the close proximity of the Kallak development to the nearest Saami 'village' or Sameby. I think 1.5 kilometres was mentioned. I found this a bit of a worry as I had visions of the Saami siting in their village listening to the mining work going on. I've developed a bit of an interest in the Saami and their lifestyle and today I read a long article by a Swedish geographic society , some of which surprises me.
First the definition of a Saami village. "The Sameby is not a village in the traditional sense of the word. It is a complex economic and administrative union created to reindeer herding. The setting up of a Saami allows building within their designated area but this is usually temporary accommodation, not permanent and for privacy is usually located somewhere near the centre of the Sameby". If that is the case it's not a good argument for refusing a permit at Kallak.
An interesting bit was that the Saami young are now educated in state schools which are specifically for the saami children. Apparently there is an Upper Secondary School in Jokkmokk and most of the graduates go on to further schooling and training before finding work in professions other than herding and usually away from their home region. This is natural progression as it is impossible to live in the past.
One would think that the Saami elders would be happy to see there children moving on in the world and making a better living than their parents did. I'm surprised that the local Saami don't offer support to the mining operation which could provide their children with good careers and hopefully keep the children in the area.
Another interesting fact is that only 10% of the Swedish Saami now make a living from herding as many now make a decent living in tourism, crafts and other more modern trades. In my mind that moves herding a few rungs down the importance ladder relative to modern developments. There must be plenty of room up there for herding and other modern developments such as mining and forestry.
I like to learn a few new facts every day and one that made me smile is that the Saami language has over three hundred words to describe different types of snow. In English we only have four types. Light, heavy. slushy and public holiday.
Back to business tomorrow, I see the Aktie's up a little bit, keep it going you Swedes. Have a nice day y'all
Morny morn, Eric, MrP. My birds have got five feeders, peanuts, wild bird seed, sunflower hearts and mealworms. All were emptied yesterday except the sunflower hearts, still nearly full....it's a new container.
