What are the effects of mining raw material on the planet?
I want to know if the mining of raw materials causes the rotation of the planet to change. If we take materials from one place on the planet and send them somewhere else, as we do in material items, does it not effect the planet as a whole?
I think there would be some change in the planet other than the planets and animals. We are changing the earths make-up. I know the earths core is made of heavy metal, but that can’t be enough to balance our greed. This makes the planet off balance? Either the rotation or angle of rotation would have to be effected by this. If we are mining gold in Alaska and send throughout the world, what about the weight removed from that part of the planet. If you put 100lbs. of weights in each had. Then you take the weight out of the right hand and put it in the left then you might fall from the weight. Dark matter has to have a breaking point in its buoyancy.
