The Cline Group is proposing to develop an iron ore mine in the Penokee Hills region of Northern Wisconsin. The following information has been submitted to the Water's Edge for publication. WE encourage you to read these articles to meet the folks from Cline..
Cline's operations and lifestyle were profiled by Bloomberg Magazine in the October, 2010, article "New King Coal." The article discusses how Cline tried to distribute literature at his childrens' school suggesting that climate change may be caused by clusters of sunspots or the Earth wobbling on its axis, not just carbon. When the school refused due to lack of scientific support for these theories, he complained to school fundraisers. He calls coal "a moral imperative" for the world's poor, and describes Massey Energy's Don Blankenship, CEO during the Upper Big Branch Mine Disaster, as one of the coal industry’s "most talented leaders."
Cline told Bloomberg reporters John Lippert and Mario Parker that "we in the industry probably do the worst job in the world getting out the story of the good lives we're helping people live. Changing that is certainly a big interest of mine."
"As far as the social acceptability of coal, I like to think I'm part of supplying the cheapest energy in America," he said.
