Mining: a Scar on The Planet

Diogo Martins, Portugal, 15-18 years old

Currently large green mountains begin to be an increasingly natural landscape. These altered landscapes, the result of extensive exploration, create a series of consequences both at the landscape level and at the environmental and social level. However, as the extraction of minerals is usually carried out in places far from inhabited areas, few people realize its impressive environmental impacts, but, over time, continuous mining begins to be more exposed to the population, which leads to revolt and fear of the consequences of this activity for public health and preservation of geological, biological and water resources.
