CANADIAN MINING PERSPECTIVE: Inmet raises $500 million for mine in Panama
Authored by: Don Winner on Monday, April 05 2010 @ 01:26 pm EDT

To get straight to the point - I disagree. There are many copper mines operating in the world that are not causing the kinds of problems or environmental damage you describe. In fact, modern mines can be operated in an environmentally responsible manner, and the potential for problems or damage can be mitigated. Therefore, I simply do not share your fundamental anti-mining philosophy. I think the investment will be good for the country in the long haul. In the meantime, please feel free to continue ranting and railing against all mines. However you might want to find a way to protest - something other than your computer which probably contains about five pounds of copper. Add that to the wires in your house used to conduct the electricity to your computer, the wires for your internet connection, etc. First - use less copper. Then, complain about copper mines. Hypocrites quickly lose all credibility with me.
