EPA says it will declare a desert flower an ‘endangered species’ that could halt a mine necessary for electric vehicle batteries
The idiotic and expensive plans to force electric vehicles down the throats of drivers have run into an obstacle created by a law that environmentalists demanded. You can't have electric vehicles without lithium ion batteries, and you can't build all those car batteries without a supply of lithium, which some warn will be inadequate soon. Lithium is far from the only problem that makes electric vehicle conversion plans a total fantasy. Electricity production would have to vastly increase, and solar or wind just can't provide that kind of power. Burn more coal? Natural gas? Nuclear power? How about those new factories to build those cars and batteries?
