Before you decide on buying an EV
Before you are thinking about buying an EV hoping to do the “Right thing” ponder on these facts.
Right now, the large, industrialized countries like China, USA and the EU are fighting over purchase of minerals mostly found in the African nation of Congo. Big corporations are already carving away mountains and erasing villages to satisfy the need for minerals to manufacture batteries going into our “Planet saving” cars.
It sems to me that there is only one way to help the climate, and that is to drive less.
The industrial nations are doing what they always have in colonial times and that is exploiting the lesser lucky countries in Africa and other places where we need our raw materials. I guess one could say it is archetypal behavior, just as wars and other human aggression is.
