This world is FUCKED. People are begging people to go electric. But if we all go electric these minerals will soon be no more like Fossil fuels that is closely coming to an end.

So u telling me that when people say "my phone is out of juice" they actually mean that it's out of juice? I though that was just a saying.
Doesn’t this cause acid rain though?

It boggles the mind how men, begin and run enterprises like this...The logistics are humbling to consider and this is easy mining...Those gold, diamond, oil mines, and many other commodities are huge endeavors are so extensive it makes you wonder who could have done it all!...I learn something new everyday on Youtube; After 12 years and thousands of hours, it never ceases to surprise me! Thanks youtube...:)

Our technology is limited to the resources we have available to create with.... that's kind of depressing...I suppose they will need to invent new materials or alter existing ones to suit further developments in technology. Words. Numbers. Stuff.

Lithium isnt the actual fuel it just stores electricity, after the lithium battery is made someone has to manually fill it with electricity.

Lithium was discovered and first used to relieve depression. No wonder why the worker guy sounds really happy, I’m sure the employees are inhaling fumes from the evaporation process lol.

Environmentalist aren't happy with the mines, but they can't shut up about how great electric cars are. You can't win. They're simple minded, narrow minded morons.

The "juice" in lithium batteries come from the energy consumed at a power plant of some sort somewhere. While it would take an investment of additional infrastructure, most likey most of the water ude could be reclaimed. As it's used now it's being return to to the environment, but not directly where i was pumped from.

Isn't it that lithium is a primary cell which means it isn't recharble? But they say they use it cell phones and laptops. Somebody explain it to me am confused

Everytime you see a global warming warrior using anything which uses lithium (or any other form of battery)...., smack them as hard as you can in the face..., with a bat. (which basically means, they will ALL be getting hit in the face with a bat)

It's impossible that there is no impact. What we put out or take from nature we get the price for that for sure. And that is the sad truth.
