Sunday Funnies: Cobalt Mining in the Congo for Renewable Energy Sources

There’s more than a twinge of hypocrisy among liberal environmentalists that want to stop responsible mining for copper, nickel, and cobalt in Minnesota at all costs, yet demand that the state transition to 100 percent carbon free electricity without nuclear or large hydro. Wind and solar power use enormous amounts of copper and nickel and Minnesota has the largest undeveloped reserves of these metals in the world.

It’s our responsibility to mine them responsibly, not to export environmental damage, and our conscience, to developing countries.
