Eva Morales, Bolivia’s President believes that mining must be “reformed”. The future of the Canadian Wheat Board is up for review—farmers will vote to keep or scrap this long-standing government monopoly. There are uncanny parallels in these two fights over who should control a country’s resources, namely the government or private enterprise.
Regardless of your opinion of the reality and/or causes of climate change, I suspect these are the relevant questions for the mining industry:
- What will climate change mean to the mining industry?
- How can the mining industry avoid negative impacts of climate change?
- How can the mining industry benefit from climate change?
