Protect Thacker Pass is sometimes criticized as a Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY) campaign. This video discusses this criticism. First, Thacker Pass isn’t just greater sage grouses’, golden eagles’, pronghorn antelopes’, and lahontan cutthroat trout’s back yard. It’s their home. They require the habitat offered there to survive. Second, the Thacker Pass mine would open up supply chains for numerous other destructive, toxic, extractive processes like cobalt and nickel mining and plastic and steel manufacturing. Stopping the Thacker Pass mine will keep children from dying in cobalt mines in Africa, for example. And, third, what about those who come after us? Do they want a toxic open pit in their “back yard”? Or will they want clean water and healthy soil?
