    We need more copper. Is it worth destroying this place?

    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.

Do mining companies have the equivalent of an "Organic" label --- something that actually allows them to charge more for the product while ensuring some level of sustainability?

We don't need any more copper.. We don't need any more of anything.... What we need is less people... People are the reason for every problem on this planet.... As our global population keeps growing exponentially, we are destroying this planet though greed and consumption.. every time we try to solve a problem that we created, we create 2 more.. Usually worst than the previous.. I truly believe we're an invasive species...

"You can't have this anywhere else in the world" Canada begs to differ. We're the only country in the world that protects even the deepest sea volcanoes because we value our land and ecology. I think both Canada and the USA can significant improve land and forestry management however for more sustainable mining and forestry wherever possible. Otherwise you risk tailings, damaging mountain faces, destroying environments and ecological regions that have in many cases never been previously touched.

Can't the arsenic lead and mercury be used for something too, rather than just dumped into nature? Or tell the mining corporation to include environmental disposal of the waste into their costs. Then if its not profitable they won't do it. Can't they find a way to reseal those heavy metals back into inert rock then put it back into the hole from which they dug it out? If that's too expensive then they shouldn't be allowed to do it. Recycle all the copper we have.
