According to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, a leading price reporting agency, battery-grade lithium carbonate (EXW China, ≥99.5% Li2CO3) was averaging a whopping $76,700 a tonne in mid-March. During the same month last year, the metal was trading at $13,400 a tonne.
For all the elites that believe they are saving the planet by buying an electric vehicle, they are living a lie and a lie that will ultimately destroy the prosperity this country enjoys. The energy cost of just getting the metals out of the ground for electric vehicles by far exceeds the savings in carbon emissions that driving the vehicle provides. Then so little of the electricity that fuels these vehicles come from renewables that charging them is using the fossil fuels that are so hated.
The Biden war on fossil fuels is expected to devaste households across this country as the cost of heating oil skyrockets. The current rolling blackouts in California and Nevada are clear indicators that the war on fossil fues is hurting Americans.
The elites in Washington, watch as citizens in Ghana and Sri Lanka starve following the same fossil fuel plan as they are implementing here. If those promoting the Green New Deal cared anything for the general welfare and prosperity of society then they would unleash fossil fuels not cripple them. Clearly these zealots, who know they are having zero impact on climate would rather destroy people lives than allow people to prosper. It is shameful.
It’s all for the greater good. Look around you, are people struggling to pay their bills, missing meals, losing jobs and suffering from high crime, is that the greater good. More people die of cold every year than heat, yet the approach to energy just means that even more people won’t be able to afford to heat their homes.
If you are promoting the destruction of fossil fuels, you are promoting starvation, and misery. I guess that is the elite view of the greater good. I would urge anyone who promotes this farce to look at the impact is has and to evaluate what is important. If you can about the greater good, even life itself, then rethinking the approach to fossil fuels is a good first step.
Or youi can step up and pay for those less fortunate to heat their homes this winter. Like that will happen.
