-Unless we radically change our way of thinking there will be no real change. As great and as fast as the development of new battery technology is, Lithium is going to be the next new oil as has been long predicted. [https://interestingengineering.com/will-lithium-be-the-next-oil|from 2020] and [https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy/lithium-become-new-oil|here in 2015] We are doing nothing but substituting one non-renewable substance for another. There will be a big shift in geopolitical powers but no change for us or our planet. What do we think lithium mining looks like and what it does to the environment? It is going to continue to be Profit before People/Planet :-(

What do we think lithium mining looks like and what it does to the environment? It is going to continue to be Profit before People/Planet :-(
Time to rethink what we are doing and may be we need to consider using Baghdad Batteries to power the next model iPhone.
