In the process of mining various ores, rocks and energy carriers, Man is indeed grossly interfering with his environment.
It is not enough that he disfigures the landscape and disturbs the balance of nature, he also causes the mass destruction of plants and animals.
In order to access the treasures of the earth, in many cases, it clears forests and drains living waters.
And if you add to this the accidents during transport (e.g. oil spills from transport ships), you have a complete picture of the man-made danger of mining.
