It appears these days that people want to do the right thing and that is to clean up their energy acquisition strategies. We've been led to believe that using oil reserves for energy is not only dirty, but that there is only a limited amount of oil left on the planet. We'll explore why that is a fallacy a little later on.
In order to fully understand the subject material, we need to translate the data into “pictures” that we can all see. Humans are visual pattern recognition machines. It's how we have stayed alive for so long!
If I told you that there is a big grey elephant in the parking lot, you would all see a picture in your heads of a big grey elephant. So, let's translate that process to this research.

When I tell you that a lithium batter for a Tesla costs $25,000, what pictures does that bring up in your head? Probably not much, right!
So, let's look at a typical lithium battery production cycle. To make one single battery for a Tesla, it requires that we mine 400,000 Tons of earth to extract the lithium. This amount is equivalent to 1.49 million cubic yards.
To paint that picture for you, let's put all that dirt into typical dump trucks, then line them up. What would that look like?
A typical dump truck holds 14 yards of dirt. So, to produce 1 battery for the guy in Peachland who wants to own an EV, we would have to process the lithium ore from 105,820 Dump Trucks.
If each dump truck is 30 feet long, then you will require a line of dump trucks that stretches, bumper to bumper, from Peachland to Swift Current, Saskatchewan! And remember, this is for just ONE battery!
But wait! There's more!
Lithium is mined primarily in 3rd world countries. They pay ten-year-old children 12 cents per hour for twelve-hour days. On a moral level, are we all ok with that? The lithium ore is bathed in hydrochloric acid and placed in evaporation ponds until it forms a brine. Should we wonder what toxic chemicals are evaporated into the atmosphere?
The lithium brine is collected and processed further at a energy cost of about $2600 per ton. The energy for processing comes from the burning of fossil fuels, which spew CO2 into the atmosphere.
In Fact, more CO2 is released into the atmosphere from the processing of ore for one battery, than would otherwise be released if you drove an average gas-powered vehicle for 10 hours per day, seven days per week, for 22 years! Let that sink in. Even at this early stage, EV use is environmentally unsound and not sustainable.
The Tesla battery is warrantied for 3 years. After that, you face a high probability of needing to replace the battery at a cost of $25,000.
And what if you've owned the car for three years? What are your chances going to be that you can sell this car? And if you don't sell it, but just want to send it to the junkyard, what do you think the cost is going to be to dispose of this car and battery? And what is the environmental cost of recycling a lithium battery of this size?
Now for the Real Head Banger!
You've been told that oil is running out – that It is finite. We've been conditioned by the fake media to believe that on ONE DAY, millions of years ago a bunch of vegetation got covered up, and over the millennia, it turned into oil. Just that one time. One shot!
Science demonstrates this to be a conspiracy theory. In fact, vegetation is CONTINUALLY being absorbed into the ground, year after year, millennia after millennia. The Green Mafia will really hate this, but the fact of the matter is that we have used less oil in the last hundred years than the earth has produced! We are not about to run out!
The idea of jumping into a nice clean and new Electric Vehicle is compelling. It sounds so environmentally perfect! It sounds like a no-brainer! But that is what they want you to believe.
Test the veracity of this report by asking the right people the tough questions, and then observe their reactions. Do they HATE YOU, or do they hate the message?
Replacing oil is great idea. But let's not make the biggest mistake in our history without doing all of the diligence!
