Rudy joins Martín Lallana for an introductory discussion on mining. We talk about the importance of mining to capitalism, the ecological impacts of different kind of mining, the way that the materials extracted have changed along history focusing on the materials needed for an energy transition and the way the Ukrainian war has changed the needs of European countries before discussing the possibilities to have more just forms of mining and the potentialities of “urban mining”
