Greenies Are Insane

The picture of front-end loader like the one above arrived in my mailbox this morning with the following short essay on the subject of how lithium batteries are not green and not good for the environment. The author, Phillip A. Fields, was so sure of his facts that he left us his address and phone number if we want to call him to check. The reason for posting this piece is that I totally agree with his facts and his premise that processing all these chemicals is not being kind to the environment. Yet, sadly the entire world is sprinting toward turning the world into one run by electricity without a single thought about how we will supply the kilowatts needed.

Lithium Batteries

“A machine like this is required to move 500 tons of earth/ore which will be refined into one lithium battery. It burns 900-1000 gallons of fuel in a 12-hour shift.”

Lithium is refined from ore using sulfuric acid. The proposed lithium mine at Thacker Pass, Nevada is estimated to require up to 75 semi-loads of sulfuric acid a day! The acid does not turn into unicorn food as AOC believes. Refining lithium has created several EPA SUPERFUND SITES. IT IS VERY TOXIC TO THE ENVIRONMENT!

A battery in an electric car, let’s say an average Tesla, is made of:

25 pounds of               lithium,

60 pounds of               nickel,

44 pounds of               manganese,

30 pounds of               cobalt,

200 pounds of             copper,

And

            400 pounds of aluminum, steel, and plastic, etc.. . .

averaging 750-1000 pounds of minerals, that had to be mined and processed into a battery that merely stores electricity. . . Electricity which is generated by oil, gas, coal, or water (and a fraction of wind and solar) . . .

That is the truth, about the lie, of “green” energy.

There is nothing green about the green new deal.

You people better learn how to vote or this nonsense will continue to flow down on top of you from the throne of government upon which you put these people.

Stop drinking the Green New Deal’s sulfuric acid Kool Aid!
