    As long as there is demand, someone will step up to supply. Page four of the BBC article has some examples of the demand. Are you part of it?

    As a miner I often laugh at people that are against mining. Quite often they are driving the need for minerals without even knowing it. Stop buying electronics, solar panels, scuba gear and anything made of metal. I would prefer if the ocean was left untouched but I think in the future there will be a demand for sea mining.
