One thing Enviroweenies always leave out of their "electric power will save us all" is batteries. Not just the fact that they do not scale for large vehicles or their 50% or more loss of storage capacity when the weather gets cold, but where they come from:
Thanks to the same enviroweenies China currently controls nearly 95% of the world's production of rare earths. Want a Lithium-Ion or a Lithium-Polymer battery? Start ponying up the bucks and sending them to the Far East. For all the talk of saving the environment, enviroweenies are more than happy to buy these products from China. The same country which competes with Russia and many other countries for having the worst environmental protection laws and processes on the planet. It's like the production of these "environmentally friendly" batteries, solar panels, wind turbines, and the like and their nasty waste products don't exist since they can't see the process in their own backyard.
It makes me wonder if these environmentalists are the most racist, bigoted people on the planet because they are more than happy to let Chinese citizens die nasty, lingering deaths for their cause without a word to their plight.
