The Biden-Harris regime continues to strong-arm Americans into trading in their fossil fueled vehicles for the “green” alternative. They even have the gall to gloat about how EV owners aren’t feeling the pain at the pump. But they will, especially those who want to buy new EVs because the cost of lithium has risen 472% in a year.
Lithium is vital for the production of electric vehicles. Without it, the vehicles would have an effective range of less than 50 miles. And while everyone is focused on gas prices going up at a tremendous rate, it’s nothing compared to how quickly lithium prices are rising. Before the price spike, the battery pack was already the most expensive part of an electric vehicle, with prices ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 to replace them — and that does not include labor.
Honestly, the only solution is to do NOTHING! No matter what, they are driving the cost of everything through the roof!! They say gasoline is “DIRTY” and now lithium is going through the roof, so maybe we go back to nature and drive a horse and buggy… but they even think horses are DIRTY (code word for carbon based)and need to be eliminated too!!!
There is no satisfying the mentally ill left, they are stark raving mad!!! So the best solution is to put them on their own island and never interact with them again….
According to Mining.com, battery-grade lithium carbonate is up 95 percent thus far in 2022, and a whopping 472 percent over the course of the past 12 months.
