    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.

Why not have dry stacks but keep them covered. Build buildings that dry them out and prevent the dust from getting into the air then remove the waste to a location more suitable.

I’m a trump supporter. I voted for him in 2016, and plan on voting for him in 2020, but this is unacceptable and America’s forests must be protected. They don’t understand what could ultimately happen if they allow mines. The entire forests and ecosystems would fall

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!!!

First of all, where do you think the copper $$$ will go? I don't trust him to secure the money for America without taking a significant stake in it first.

So what about the places that do mine iron ore? Do we outsource to some distant land being destroyed. How do people obtain new metals without destruction?

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.

There was a post I saw that I don’t remember who said it but put this the best” I want to skip to the end of the movie about trump to the fade out credits- when we find out how much prison time they each got”. 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
