Impacts of Mining
beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat. We are also seeking feedback from experts and practitioners on how to improve the content, and our distribution and implementation strategy. Get Involved! If you’re interested in collaborating on the project, hosting a screening, or providing advice or feedback, please contact Jessie Landerman at [email protected]
Chile’s War Against Climate Change And Impact On Metals
Chile is the world leader in copper production, but the country also has reserves of cobalt and lithium primed for the electric revolution, said Baldo Prokurica, Minister of Mining of Chile. “We’re really driving and pushing the e-mobility aspect. Right now, Chile is the second country with the most electrical busses after China, and in fact right now there are 500 electrical busses in Santiago that are used for public transit,” Prokurica told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention in Toronto. _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

German climate activists storm enormous lignite coal mine | DW News
Hundreds of climate activists have broken through a police line and stormed one of Germany's biggest lignite coal mines, the Garzweiler open pit mine run by energy giant RWE. Several police officers have reportedly been injured. It's the culmination of a mass protest organized by several environmentalist groups. Activists are demanding that Germany take immediate action to phase out fossil fuels, so as to limit global warming.

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as global warming. Scientists actively work to understand past and future climate by using observations and theoretical models. A climate record—extending deep into the Earth's past—has been assembled, and continues to be built up, based on geological evidence from borehole temperature profiles, cores removed from deep accumulations of ice, floral and faunal records, glacial and periglacial processes, stable-isotope and other analyses of sediment layers, and records of past sea levels. More recent data are provided by the instrumental record. General circulation models, based on the physical sciences, are often used in theoretical approaches to match past climate data, make future projections, and link causes and effects in climate change.

How Burning Fossil Fuels Leads to Climate Change | Chemistry for All | FuseSchool
Learn the basics about climate change and how burning fossil fuels adds extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, and how this then leads to climate change. Fossil fuels, like oil, coal and natural gas, are the remains of living things from millions of years ago. They are mainly composed of carbon with varying amounts of hydrogen. When the petrol burns, it joins with oxygen to build up hydrogen oxide and carbon dioxide. Before the world became industrialised by burning fossil fuels the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere was about 0.028% tiny compared with oxygen at 21% and nitrogen at 78%, but enough to keep us warm. Without this natural blanket of insulating gas the earth would be too cold to support life as we know it. But this carbon dioxide released when fossil fuels burn adds to the existing carbon dioxide levels which are now nearly 50% higher than pre-industrial times. Although we get a daily supply of heat from the sun, the earth normally loses this (at night and in the colder seasons) so the average temperature of the earth remains constant. But this status quo is starting to change: as humanity adds carbon dioxide into our atmosphere the extra layer isolates the heat and it cannot escape as easily. The earth cannot lose its greenhouse gases quickly – and we keep adding to them! By putting our planet in a sweat box, we are causing wide ranging consequences for our climate and life on the planet. Some people think that living things contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect because they breathe out carbon dioxide – but this carbon has come from their food and that has come from plants which took the carbon from the atmosphere in what is called the carbon cycle. Even burning wood does not contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect as long as the trees you cut down are replanted. However the carbon in fossil fuels has remained trapped underground for 100’s of millions of years so it is extra carbon that is being added to the natural cycle. We are also throwing away other gases into the atmosphere which help trap infra-red radiation, and so also enhance the natural greenhouse effect. They are methane, especially from rice paddy fields and from cows and nitrous oxide NON from car exhausts. This rise in temperature cause our climate to change because extra energy is trapped on earth – already causing glaciers and ice caps to melt. With more energy in the atmosphere weather becomes more extreme, so there are more floods, droughts, and storms. Not everywhere will get warmer, but the climate is changing all because we have been using fossil fuels at an ever increasing rate.

Mining to Mitigate Climate Change: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage in Mine Waste
Most carbon on Earth is held in carbonate minerals formed from weathering of the earth’s crust. Weathering, however, is too sluggish to affect the carbon budget on the timescale of human emissions. Mining changes all of that. The extraction of metals and minerals increases the reactivity of rocks so that they weather spontaneously, capturing carbon from air in the process. Join Greg Dipple as he explores how mine wastes can be deployed to lower the carbon footprint of industrial operations and perhaps even reduce the carbon content of our atmosphere globally.
BLOCKCHAIN Technology, CRYPTOCURRENCY Mining, and Climate Change.

Blockchain technology, incorporated into projects and platforms, could give us a consensus truth with regards to percentages, value, statistics, demographics, scales, ratios, amounts, and comparisons. We are moving closer to the tokenization of many, many things. Real estate, utility bills, and agricultural goods. Utilities that create and distribute power could be tokenized as well. Have a look at Power Ledger. They are doing great things in Australia with this. Another interesting token is the Victoria Falls coin.

Profits Over People: Mining Ruins Lives in Malawi
Malawi’s government has failed to protect the rights and livelihoods of people living in nascent mining communities, Human Rights Watch said today in a report released on eve of the International Right to Know Day. Families living near coal and uranium mining operations face serious problems with water, food, and housing, and are left in the dark about health and other risks from mining. The 96-page report, “‘They Destroyed Everything’: Mining and Human Rights in Malawi,” examines the impact of extractive industries on communities in some of Malawi’s first mining areas, in Karonga district located on the northwestern shores of Lake Malawi. Malawi’s government has promoted private investment in mining and resource extraction to diversify its economy. But environmental risks are common in resource extraction and mining significantly contributes to climate change, which in turn affects governments’ ability to realize the rights to health, water, and food.

Climate Protesters Clash with Police at Coal Mine in Western Germany
Thousands have joined climate protests in the western German village of Hochneukirch near one of the country’s biggest lignite coal mines. Saturday’s rally comes two days after European Union leaders failed to agree upon a plan to make the bloc’s economy carbon neutral by 2050. German police have mobilized hundreds of officers to prevent the vast, open-cast mine and adjacent power plants from being blocked by protesters. Protester Selma Schubert said, “It’s important to increase the pressure on the government.” Following months of protests by students and a sharp rise in the polls for Germany’s Green party, Chancellor Angela Merkel recently threw her weight behind the idea of making the entire German economy climate neutral by 2050 — meaning no more man-made greenhouse gases would be added to the atmosphere.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

Big Data in Climate: Opportunities and Challenges for Machine Learning
Author: Vipin Kumar, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota Abstract: This talk will present an overview of research being done in a large interdisciplinary project on the development of novel data mining and machine learning approaches for analyzing massive amount of climate and ecosystem data now available from satellite and ground-based sensors, and physics-based climate model simulations. These information-rich data sets offer huge potential for monitoring, understanding, and predicting the behavior of the Earth's ecosystem and for advancing the science of global change. This talk will discuss challenges in analyzing such data sets and some of our research results in mapping the dynamics of surface water globally as well as detecting deforestation and fires in tropical forests using data from Earth observing satellites.

Margrit von Braun - Pollution, Global Instability, and Climate Change
This is a fascinating talk on mining, pollution, and climate change by Dr. Margrit von Braun who is an environmental engineer and scientist. Margrit von Braun is an environmental engineer, working in the areas of hazardous waste management and risk assessment. She holds degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Idaho, and Washington State University. After working for USEPA in Atlanta, Margrit moved to Idaho in 1977 to work for the Idaho DEQ. She joined the faculty at UI in 1980; she helped found and directed the Environmental Science and Environmental Engineering programs for 10 years and then served as dean of the College of Graduate Studies for 10 years. In 1984, she and her husband, Ian von Lindern, founded an environmental engineering company focused on remediation of hazardous waste sites, particularly in mining districts. Since retiring from UI and selling their company, Margrit and Ian founded TerraGraphics International Foundation (TIFO), a non-governmental organization assisting communities in reducing their environmental exposures. This is a talk on her past work with TIFO in Nigeria and how #mining for metals exacerbates #inequality which the #GreenNewDeal attempts to solve. Mining for metals required by solar panels can potentially be devastating to these communities if the labor is outsourced.

Dr. Greg Dipple, University of British Columbia: Reversing Climate Change #9
When it comes to climate change, the mining industry is typically seen as a ‘bad guy,’ depleting the Earth’s natural resources and emitting CO2 in the process. So you might be astounded to learn that carbon can actually be captured and stored using the waste produced in the mining process. In fact, mines could take advantage of this practice, with simple changes in facility design, to become greenhouse gas neutral. Indeed the potential exists for scaling up this carbon capture process to remove billions of tons of CO2 per year—simply by recycling mining waste.   Ross and Christophe are joined by Dr. Greg Dipple, a professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia. He is a geologist who studies the processes of and driving forces behind mineral reactions with a focus on fluid-rock interactions. In the last 15 years, Dr. Dipple’s research has focused on carbon sequestration at and near the surface of the Earth.   Dr. Dipple joins Ross and Christophe to explain the process of capturing carbon with mining waste known as tailing. He explains the relative ease with which mines could be redesigned to support the process and the economic and reputational value in removing carbon through mine tailing. Dr. Dipple walks us through his back-of-the-envelope calculations that indicate a very promising $10-20 per ton carbon cost for mine tailing as well as the potential to scale this carbon capture process. We cover several other safety and environmental concerns associated with mining, and Dr. Dipple shares the significance of his partnership with mining companies in deploying his approach in the field. Listen in and learn how Dr. Dipple came to discover the potential for recycling mine tailing to capture carbon.   Key Takeaways [1:12] The process of capturing carbon with mining waste Identify mines hosted in ultramafic rock Reactive waste product can absorb CO2 [2:47] The nature of the mining industry Conservative, long-term investment Slow to adopt new technology, avoid risk [3:32] The value of carbon capture for mining industry Reputational AND financial Stabilizes waste, mitigates dust [5:55] The fundamentals of carbon removal via mine tailing Less than 1% of mined rock = metal/diamond Rest of processed rock is waste known as tailings Tailings much more reactive because finely ground [7:32] How mines could be redesigned to promote carbon capture Maximize potential for reaction between CO2 and tailings material Safer, more energy efficient and less expensive [10:33] The affordability of using tailings for carbon capture No new technology involved Billions of tons of highly reactive rock at surface Could offset all CO2 emissions associated with mining Back of envelope calculations = $10-$20/ton [13:44] Dr. Dipple’s eureka moment re: tailings and carbon capture Working with colleague in Quebec, mid-1990’s Found carbonate minerals in tailings cementing grains of ground-up material together Studied rate of reactions, realized only limited by availability of CO2 Understood could provide CO2 rather than increase reactivity [16:57] The safety concerns associated with toxic waste Increase reaction rates by moving air, make tailings more accessible to gas flow Use onsite power plants as point source of CO2, air capture Could make mine greenhouse gas neutral [20:00] The potential to scale the carbon capture process in mining Large mine produces 20M tons of rock/year Also generates just under 1M tons of CO2/year Capacity of waste to capture CO2 = 10X greater than emissions Greenhouse gas neutral with just 5-10% of filings (easily extracted) Carbonating all current waste = 200M tons/year Opening new mines based on potential = billions of tons of CO2 removed/year [26:54] How CO2 might neutralize asbestos  Idea to make asbestos non-toxic by modifying surface properties through process that also sequesters carbon Could destroy asbestos fibers, but would be expensive ($200/ton) [30:00] The other environmental considerations around mining Water use, impact in sensitive environments (i.e.: Canadian Arctic) [34:29] Dr. Dipple’s take on next steps for his work Change in carbon economy allows to take lab models to field Pick best sites so that large-scale attempts are successful Ability to deal with carbon now seen as huge value prop for mining companies  [37:46] How to measure carbon captured through tailings #carbonremoval #minetailings #enhancedweathering
