We need more copper. Is it worth destroying this place?
Subscribe to our channel! goo.gl/0bsAjO
The Trump administration has opened up America's public lands to mining and fossil fuel companies on an unprecedented scale, lifting decades-long protections from millions of acres of wilderness across the country. In Minnesota, one proposed copper mine is pitting neighbors against each other as they weigh the benefits of new mining jobs against the environmental consequences of new mines. It’s an old American debate that’s been further complicated here by an unforgiving reality: We need copper, and there are not that many places to get it.

    Why does it have to be one, or the other??? The is what Vox wants you to think!!! These areas are still protected, and any company that plans to remove any minerals from these areas, will have to do so while protecting the environment!!! And yes the current environment!!!

    It is so special and so unigue and it is still the same because Trump didn't do anything to those areas it is the media who are sponsering the democrats are lying to you. By the way your live is based on industry so look for better solutions. But do not act like you can do without heavy metals. It is in the very device you are watching this with.

    In survival, we think of the three's: 3 minutes w/o Oxygen, 3 hours in extreme conditions (hot/cold), 3 days w/o water, and 3 weeks w/o food (more for some); and the body breaks down and can cause harm, and/or death. Your life, and your land, without water is worthless. Working 30 + years in the field of Emergency Response, Emergency Management, and in the Environmental Field has allowed me to see the "life span" of these types of operations come, exploit, and leave a dead zone + a useless zone. I have yet to see an industry like this not leave a foot print. Don't think in the now, act for the future.
    PS
    not sure i agree with this "i dipped my cup in the water from my canoe and drank it" ... the times of year you can do this w/o impact is minimal.

I swear if someone takes him out I will track down that person to give them a fruit basket- it would be poetic if the administrations lax gun policies are what wind up killing them. I can dream, but I get the feeling this is going to get much worse before it gets better, if it ever does get better

    If they can afford to pay the locals $90000 to mine, they can afford to find a way to store that waste.
    It makes me sick seeing all those people cheering at a decision that will waste this beautiful landscape. I sincerely hope they don't pollute the waterways, and when the copper has run out, they clean up properly. Probably not though, the profits will likely go to apathetic shareholders and none will be kept for decomissioning the mine.

    And yet you (vox) are able to make videos like this due to machines that need copper to function. So if we don't mine for copper here, it will be mined somewhere else. So how is the problem resolved? It's not, out of sight out of mind doesn't mean the Earth is less polluted because we didn't see the manufacturing process. And there is the solution, new way of extraction, and processing for copper. Dangerous heavy metals are in our waters, they have been there since we started mining. Examples are watch any gold panning videos.
