Climate warning

Glencore's prized Canadian coal mines come with rising environmental scrutiny.

A consortium led by Glencore secured a $9 billion bid for Teck Resources' coal unit. However, concerns about water pollution, specifically selenium contamination from Teck's Elk Valley mines in British Columbia, have prompted Canada and the U.S. to consider a study by the International Joint Commission. If approved, this could lead to stricter regulations for the consortium, requiring additional funds for environmental cleanup due to selenium's toxicity to fish and existing pollution issues despite Teck's previous efforts. https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/glencore-s-prized-canadian-coal-mines-come-with-rising-environmental-scrutiny-1.6686890

        It's so insensitive of glecore to venture into coal mining and still pollute water endangering aquatic life

              The $9 billion bid for Teck Resources' coal unit led by Glencore raises environmental concerns, particularly regarding water pollution and selenium contamination from Elk Valley mines in British Columbia. The proposed study by the International Joint Commission reflects growing scrutiny, potentially leading to stricter regulations for the consortium. This emphasizes the need for responsible environmental practices and additional funds for cleanup, addressing selenium's toxicity and existing pollution issues. Environmental diligence is paramount in advancing climate-conscious initiatives. 🌍🌿 #ClimateAction #EnvironmentalStewardship

                I hope this leads to a comprehensive plan for cleaning up selenium contamination and protecting the environment around the Elk Valley mines.

                  The issues with water pollution and selenium contamination are worrisome. This needs stricter regulations and more clean up funds to ensure responsible practices and mitigate the impact on the environment.

                      @walter_lungayi true, we really need to make sure we're getting resources in a way that's good for the environment.
