In Australia, as well as other countries, mining operations attempting to meet the stated need for minerals for renewable-energy solutions are causing other environmental problems such as toxic run-off into water sources and the destruction of wilderness areas.


“It’s absolutely ironic, but to save the planet we are going to need more mines,” says Allison Britt of Geoscience Australia, a government agency that catalogs the nation’s mineral resources and oversees the Australian mining industry.
