On Friday I sent out the first Green Rocks chat. On the Substack App, I started a thread on the protection of Minnesota’s Boundary Waters, which puts up a significant barrier to the Twin Metals nickel-copper mine. There was a lot of discussion over on Twitter about it, and the chat offers a way for all 1,400 of us to share resources and discuss topics like this.
But I may have forgotten to let you all know. So here’s the formal notice: Green Rocks has a chat now. To join, just download the phone app. Substack also has a tutorial below.
I’m interested in your views on how to use it. I can start threads on specific, major stories, or we can begin threads on regions of individual metals/materials. Any subscriber can contribute; just keep it civil. Chats are sent via the app, not email, so you may want to turn on push notifications to avoid missing a conversation as it happens.

How to get started
Download the app by clicking this link or the button below. Substack Chat is now available on both iOS and Android.

That’s it! Jump into my thread to say hi, and if you have any issues, check out Substack’s FAQ.
Do readers have the ability to start new threads ? Now , I can only reply to threads that have been started by you . I was hoping it would be a Slack like feature but apparently not
