Listen Up: The Great Minnesota Mining Debate Featuring Isaac Orr and Kevin Lee of Minnesota Center of Environmental Advocacy
Last year I participated in a debate about the future of copper nickel mining in Minnesota at the Theater of Public Policy with Kevin Lee, from the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy. The debate was very civil, and then improv actors have some fun with what they learned about the issue.
Audience members had strong opinions on both sides of the issue but we were able to co-exist.
Since then, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency have granted the PolyMet mining project all of the necessary permits to build the mine. My performance obviously tipped the balance, kidding!
