As usual, big business talks more loudly than citizens or the environment. All voting shares in our little Columbian Chemical Hamilton plant is 100% owned by Phelps Dodge, a huge multi-nantional which is also big in copper mining ans other environmentally surly activities. Dowlaod a PDF report on Phelps Dodge and Copper Mining in Grant County NM at So one might led to doubt the CC subsidiaries would be any more environmentally sensitive than their copper mining counterparts.

When this story broke a few weks ago, I easily found several online references to Columbian Carbon and a high profile lawsuit with a US native band on very similar circumstances. Strangely, no trace of this is apparent in any search engine (I use a meta search). Only legal references to pollution cases CC has won (very old), and other non-pollution cases. Makes one go HMMMM.

Pay special attention in the PDF report above to where P-D US campaign funding went. Is anyone aware whether P-D or CC contributed to any local political campaigns? Inquiring minds want to know...
