Prestine Minnesota Wilderness Threatened By Copper Mining Operations

By

Interesting investigation into the sale of America’s wilderness areas to mining and fossil fuel companies and it’s possible environmental impact on pristine areas like Minnesota’s Boundry Waters Area. Pay attention:

“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 a 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.”
