    Dont they have to heat the lithium with coal to make the batteries.

  2. Freddie Cucaracha on July 12, 2021 at 3:16 pm

    CALLS ON $MP 🚀 🚀

    Keep the oil companies out of it!

  4. Ogitchiidaa Pine on July 12, 2021 at 3:21 pm

    Whats the company’s name??

  5. A LR on July 12, 2021 at 3:21 pm

    California won’t do crap to produce lithium. It takes 1 year for written proposal because of a rat or a fly.

  6. JenLovesTool on July 12, 2021 at 3:23 pm

    lithium is soooooo flammable. lithium from a battery will ignite from the friction of the wind if you move it too fast. I wonder what the process is when mining it. the pools obviously play a huge role but they didn’t really explain anything.

    Open the Keystone XL PIPLINE!.. enough of this crap..

    If you want to create jobs for the benefit of Americans, you wouldn’t leave it up to capitalists to extract OUR nation’s resources. Their motive is and always will be profit. Their goal is to pay as few people as little as possible and squeeze every dime out them to keep for themselves, dodge taxes, and manipulate democracy with PR campaigns and lobbying. Nationalize the industry and take it over. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻

    Why don’t you at world news tonight cover the disaster at the border that bobo Biden created and hyena Harris is hiding from? Huh! You bunch of hypocrites! You make me sick.

  15. CT SC on July 12, 2021 at 3:33 pm

    Cali has lithium too.

    Congratulations to the Biden/Harris team for rejoining the Paris accord. When was America great?
    Start filming Fire Karens and there will be Less Fires.
    Offer Payment initiatives for Dobbing in Arsonists!
    Lu sè Changcheng (Great green wall) can be seen from space. The US gender reveal party fires were seen from space.
    China reduced desertification by 2000sqkm per year and planted 30 million hectares of new forest in the last 5 years.

    🎵 I’m so happy because today I found my friend 🎵

  19. Steven Amendola on July 12, 2021 at 3:34 pm

    Yeah an open mine sounds great. NOT now it makes sense why Bill Gates owns all that land. Hes farming lithium.and that’s why they took that pipeline away. Scum bags

  20. Hugh VonNiederhausern on July 12, 2021 at 3:34 pm

    April 21, 2021 about 8 P.M. Eastern Time
    Things must be getting back to
    normal, when we see Ginger Zee
    out exploring the Lithium Pits in
    the Mojave Desert,
    Actually I had never heard that Southern California produced such a large quantity, of the useful Lithium metal,
    The Mojave Desert and the Southern California lakes and rivers, have been known for vast volumes of Selenium metal, which has been pumped all up and down the California farm fields,
    from Strawberries and Lettuce, to
    Watermelons, California is a water poor
    state, depending heavily on surrounding water sources from other Western States,
    While California is a greedy water hog,
    at least some of that water doesn’t end up, in the Hollywood Elitist swimming pools, which brings up the question,
    are the rich and famous swimming pools, rich in selenium?
    Sorry we got off topic talking about,
    the Hollywood Crowd,
    Yes Lithium is the metal of choice for
    Silicon Valley, an electricity hog, that also uses vast amounts of Electricity for the
    Geek Goofs,
    Once again we got off topic,
    Certainly California should not be allowed to be a World Supplier of Lithium, and
    have the Communist Chinese Party,
    purchased those Lithium mines?
    under Joe Biden anything is possible,
    the Communist Chinese Party has purchased vast amounts of
    Farm Land in Colorado and Wyoming.
    Sorry maybe we should move on to
    a different topic?
    How about the Mars rover pictures?

    Be Well Everyone.

    Have some pudding. .

  22. Elmer Fudd on July 12, 2021 at 3:42 pm

    You can also find lithium at psych hospitals 😬 jus’ sayin’

  23. Steve Gunderson on July 12, 2021 at 3:44 pm

    …"save 2.7 trillion dollars’… no explanation of the math…sounds fishy to me.

  24. MY LIFE IS A MEME MY LIFE IS PATHETIC on July 12, 2021 at 3:46 pm

    Lol people really think electric cars will solve everything 😂

  25. Bj Moon on July 12, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    And it’s us mere people causing global warming….

    Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    Matt 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

    Gm should pay their technicians!!! So many mechanic jobs will be lost

    Lithium crates more CO2 then an gas car.

  31. Ultra-Violet-Light Crayon on July 12, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    $2.7 trillion vs lithium waste which is far more environmentally toxic than even fracking! Sound’s like a sales pitch.

  32. Trevor B on July 12, 2021 at 3:57 pm

    Patrolling the Mojave makes you almost wish for a nuclear winter…

  33. Tashiko Weinstein on July 12, 2021 at 3:57 pm

    I have concern about the environmental impact that lithium will have and I know already that lithuim is extremely toxic!

    electric vehicles are Stupid and look ugly

  35. Trevor B on July 12, 2021 at 3:59 pm

    I wonder if there’s lithium around the small town of goodsprings. The good doc lives there.

  36. Kamlin Kilgroe on July 12, 2021 at 4:00 pm

    nonsense

  37. THE ONLINE CHRISTIAN MINISTER on July 12, 2021 at 4:01 pm

    Lithium extraction harms the soil and causes air contamination. In Argentina’s Salar de Hombre Muerto, residents believe that lithium operations contaminated streams used by humans and livestock and for crop irrigation.

  40. Tom Morrissey on July 12, 2021 at 4:09 pm

    Not clean. Don’t give into the hype of making lithium mines acceptable and "clean". Don’t be ignorant. Every energy has some type of impact.

  41. DJ Pomare on July 12, 2021 at 4:10 pm

    The US and China can work together on shared challenges like global health security and climate change. J.Biden.
    Biden’s Climate change policy stops keystone pipes running across Native Indian land.
    Unless you’re Native American, you came from someplace else. B. Obama. When was America great?
    Run the pipes across Mar-a-Lago and Ivanka’s new property. Frack off Traitor Trump!

  42. Rebecca Knox on July 12, 2021 at 4:11 pm

    Odd fact, everywhere else that they have discovered lithium in usable quantities they’ve "found" terrorists and sent in american troops…this could cause massive confusion! lol
