There must be some better way to dispose off harmful waste. Here it's not only economy vs environment but it's also America vs China.

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!!!

Don't worry, once the copper there is all mined 20 years from now, the taxpayers there will pay for the cleanup.

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?

We need/ want the copper but we cant extract it until there is a safe way to do so and hold business accountable if we saw negative implications on the environment even if its 10 years later

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

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.

TeenageCapitalist

@Alex Siemers what do you mean? Its not like the mining company's dont recycle. Jobs in the recycling industry dont pay as well as mining. We need mining and at the moment (key word at the moment) instead of recylcing in America.
Alex Siemers
Alex Siemers - 10 days ago
TeenageCapitalist jobs can exist without tearing apart the environment. If anything, the effort needed to recycle materials would provide more jobs than getting them fresh from the ground.
