WHAT IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE GOING ON WITH MINING? HOW DOES IT AFFECT CANADIAN PEOPLE? AND WHAT ARE SOME SOLUTIONS TO THIS ISSUE? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS ISSUE?
Development of sinkholes, failure of biodiversity, erosions, and more are the encouragement of mining. The use of catastrophic emissions due to the mining and the processing of plants has been encouraged to an amount of $1 billion. For the past 20 years, this issue has been arising.
The mining industry and acid precipitation causes issues related to:
-Soil, atmosphere, water, and vegetation are destroyed causing destruction the environment surrounding us.
-The decease of aquatic animals; fish, sea turtles, moon jellyfish, etc.
-As acid rain drops on buildings, it causes decomposition.
-Different kinds of chemicals are free to roam while the development of mining continues.
-We humans, and the animals around, face the consequences of waste in water.
Health problems are created for the workers in the mining industry. Sickness, infections, that may possibly evolve to death, develop when the miners leave the holes they've dug for puddles to materialize. Communities that don't work for these mining industries may also get harmed by the chemicals released by workers. For example, chemicals released in water can discharge diseases for random folk who one day probably decide to; take a bath, wash certain objects, drink the water, or even play in it.
Solutions to create less construction to acid precipitation would be to:
-Purchase Eco-friendly brands.
-Take the subway, walk, take your bike to wherever your destination is, if available.
-Definitely reduce, reuse, and recycle.
-Energy-efficient brands are the way to go!
My opinion to this situation would be to try and make a change in the way things work to make our environment more sustainable. Walking, taking a bus, car-pooling, riding a bike, spending less time on electronics, concentrating on family time, are some ways to 'speed' up the process we need to take in order for our planet's impact to perform. Miners should focus on the the impact they can make by using less effective ways for our environment to be safer.
