Both our energy consumption, and hence the demand for oil and gas, as the production of all kinds of electronic stuff, for which metals like gold, cobalt and others are neccessary, increase exponentiallly. But for the extraction of these minerals the people and the environment in the South pay a high price: their habitats are destroyed, the water is polluted, soils dry out,...
