Sometimes the “solutions” cause more damage than what we’re currently doing. Do a search on EV battery production for instance.It may seem like a "push" and "too fast" to some, but the fact is we're way behind the curve at this point. We should have been actively pursuing a more environmentally kind lifestyle 50 years ago. We have wasted quite a bit of time fighting inevitability...so a few quick steps in the right direction are a small price to pay. While you and I might not see or feel a benefit I assure you, our grandchildren will...and they need a world to live in too.
I am anxiously awaiting an EV Ranger 4X4.
It takes 500,000 gallons of water to mine one metric ton of lithium for car batteries. That is a LOT of water. That gives you almost exactly 2 electric cars.
That says nothing about what’s involved to recycle once lifecycle is done…. Something to think about. That’s only one example, there’s so many more. Rare earth metals is another. Mind boggling destruction to the environment
