One third of copper is in landfills, one third in use, one third still in ground

RubberBandMan:   (a) One third of copper is in landfills, (b) one third in use, (c) one third still in ground

I don't believe you can know (c), which makes (a) and (b) highly speculative.  Imma support it anyway, because it pushes a necessary truth, that we should be absolutely be doing more to recycle copper (and many other things), as the need to mine and refine it has diminished.

Give it to them, they deserve the larger share of the profits since they're the ones extracting the product and/or allowing their land to be used for copper extraction.

Yeah, copper is one of those things people actually bother to recycle.  The way it's often extracted from electrical products and wires often isn't environmentally friendly though.

Copper heap leaching isn't exactly environmentally friendly either.

They can afford to pay the workers the easiest thing to do is to go after the corporate Executives in the middle men that buy up the production of the factories and then warehouses to manipulate Global copper price. Those Rich Pricks don't deserve what they have anyway
