O Bardi delivers a sweeping history of the mining industry starting with its humble beginning when our early ancestors started digging underground to find the stones they needed for their tools He traces the links between mineral riches and empires wars and civilizations and shows how mining in its various forms came to be one of the largest global industries He also illustrates how the gigantic mining machine is now starting to show signs of difficulties The easy mineral resources the least expensive to extract and process have been mostly exploited and depleted There are plenty of minerals left to extract but at higher costs and with increasing difficul. This book will make you rethink everything around you It talks of mining and depletion and it s really horrible to see what we ve done and are still doing to the planet It clears up a lot of things for instance it talks about what fracking is and why modern fracking is much dangerous than fracking was a few decades ago It also talks about some solutions to the problems of depletion It was really depressing but tried to be uplifting at times which is hard to do because it seems that the depletion problem is pretty obvious but instead of conserving resources we are using them up faster than ever There was a

As we dig drill and excavate to unearth the planet's mineral bounty the resources we exploit from ores veins seams and wells are gradually becoming exhausted Mineral treasures that took millions or even billions of years to form are now being suandered in just centuries or sometimes just decades Will there come a time when we actually run out of minerals Debates already soar over how we are going to obtain energy without oil coal and gas But what about the other mineral losses we face Without metals and semiconductors how are we going to keep our industrial system running Without mineral fertilizers and fuels how are we going to produce the food we needUg. Everything we use after all if not grown must be mined Europe entered the Middle Ages badly depleted in minerals black powder from China soon restarted European mining Iron needs to be turned into steel which is an alloy of Iron and Carbon Damascus blades were high carbon steel actually made in India Coal coming from England changed the smelting game with coal fired furnaces replacing small charcoal ones Coal meant you could have everyday objects finally made of metal In ancient history there was little reason for wars and conuest your fertile valley gave you what you wanted However once preciou

TiesThe effects of depletion take different forms and one may be the economic crisis that is gripping the world system And depletion is not the only problem Mining has a dark side pollution that takes many forms and delivers many conseuences including climate change The world we have been accustomed to so far was based on cheap mineral resources and on the ability of the ecosystem to absorb pollution without generating damage to human beings Both conditions are rapidly disappearing Having thoroughly plundered planet Earth we are entering a new world Bardi draws upon the world's leading minerals experts to offer a compelling glimpse into that new world ahe. This is a good follow up to Limits to Growth Limits to Growth The 30 Year Update 2052 and other materials from the Club of RomeBardi gives good overview of Peak Oil along with Peak Metals in general and in detail for things such as gold silver copper and uranium On that last one greens like me who are OK with nuclear power as long as wastes are adeuately handled get some food for thought on the depletion of easily mined uranium oresThis is sobering indeed though certainly not on the same level of alarmism as a James Kunstler

    The science history mythology and economics are all intertwined in the story of how humans extract resources from the planet Plants and animals have been extracting resources since life began but only now do we extract than the replenishment of the resources Going from how early philosopher views of the planet being a giant life form Gaia providing all the resources and helping regenerated the resources once extracted to the actua

    We recently read Bill McKibben's OIL AND HONEY and the point that he made very clearly was that it really is beside the point trying to calculate how big the earth's fossil fuel reserves are because if we dig up and suck up and burn even a sizable fraction of the known reserves the conseuences for the planet w

    A very sobering view of the state of the state of mineral mining and global supply The world is rapidly running out of key manufacturing minerals with many estimates reaching little or no supply by 2050 to 2100 Nickel Copper Magnesium Phosphorous Zinc etc all have limited resource such that the cost of extracti
