environmental issues/problems:problems with vegetation and health.

how can mining be sustained? 3 ways how to sustain mining problems are to keep a certain time for each miner to mine, second mine in atleast groups of 3 because then one person mines then the other and then the other person, and finally try to keep a safe distance from the coal or anything that can get you ill because anything is worst then not going work.

how can canada sustain them selves from consuming minerals and metals found from mining? canada can get some of their minerals from mining and some from other places and also same with metals because minerals and metals are also found inthe ground if you have the right intension to find them and not to use them to get rich or get money off of them, but instead to use them for canada and not for one self.

how can environmental issues/problems be sustained? taking care of climate change and air quality, keeping the water and the availability of the water drinkable, keeping nature clean and making sure that it is very well protected, and finally shrinking our ecological footprint from the size of a foot ball/soccer ball feild to the size of a single house with two floors and four rooms two upstairs and two downstairs,
