Multi-part public radio series on Arizona copper

Tucson's Arizona Public Media launched a multi-part series today titled "Copper at the Crossroads" that examines copper mining in Arizona. Based on their blurb, it appears they take the position that it's a simple debate - jobs vs environment. [right, footprints of existing and proposed copper mines in the greater Tucson region. Brown are the pits, red represents tailings, and yellow are waste rock. The location and sizes at the Rosemont site are postulated.]

  1. During the presentations given by Mr. Fischer elsewhere, the information is either misleading or in some case just wrong. It is hard to understand how these presentations might be different-except that they are given by Mr. Pace.

    And, how come no one ever talks about the average time to permit a copper mine?
