Electric - Cars
Beautiful they are, like from a Sci Fi movie. Customers want it that way and we have to build it that way, says the German Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
But is that really true? Do we really want that? Or do we think we want this, cause the advertising say it to us? Do we know the whole truth about these types of vehicles? I do not think so and I can not enlighten you completely on these short pages. It would therefore be wise to inform yourself sufficiently. I'll give you some food for thought here. It is not difficult to see that these vehicles are just as big and heavy as the previous ones, so they will consume just as much as the old gasoline-powered ones. However, their environmental footprint is so bad at manufacturing that comes from the battery that produced, that a comparable gasoline car at the point finished the electro car has already driven than 100.000 km. With such a vehicle, you do not produce less, you produce more CO² !
What you really want
Uniti One (Link to the webside in the picture above)
In advertising you got shown, that you are a great guy with such a car, successful, wow cool, and you will definitely get an great female with it. For the woman it may be an SUV, in it she can feel safe and sublime. Embassies that turn off your rational thinking, the reason why advertising is actually personal injury and must be banned. because they selling you something, that past your brain and what you do not really want. What you really want is to be accepted and you want to live, you want to save CO², you want to protect yourself, your house and your family. You want to prevent bad catastrophes like the emerging tornadoes in the interior that rage like nuclear bombs.That's what you really want, because you're not an idiot, but you definitely can not achieve this with such vehicles.
So, what you really want, I suggest to you right now, is a little car. You really save CO², you're a great and responsible person, you protect your family and you are admired by everyone. The link to the page is in the middle of the picture. But before you go shopping now, unfortunately we still have to talk about the battery. The material for this is being brought in different poor countries from the ground. In the so-called "lithium triangle" between Bolivia, Argentina and Chile. Lithium is an alkali metal that is won in an evaporation process. For this purpose, the mineral-containing groundwater is pumped into huge basins. Under the hot desert sun, it then evaporates, causing different salts gradually settle in the pelvis. This salt solution is then transformed into lithium carbonate in a chemical process.
The poorest pay your battery with their lives. Do you like this?
This consumes vast amounts of water that does not exist in these regions, the water table is therefore falling. The poor people in this area are damaged. They have no water, they can not plant anything, they starve and die of thirst. Untreated sewage contaminates the whole area. The poor get nothing from the high profits they make with the metal. The manufacturing companies are robbing these people as usual.
Electric cars from child labor: Cobalt mining in Congo
Cobalt can be found in countries like China, Canada and Australia. However, 48 percent of the world's reserves are in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 60 percent of the world's demand for cobalt comes from mines in the Central African country. They produce a lot of 84,400 tons of the metal. Of these, 18,000 tonnes, or around 20 percent, come from illegal small mines. Because only children are small enough to crawl holes in the mines, they are forced to mining. The same as always in the official mines. The environment is polluted, the poor are suffering and of course they have no share in the powerful profits of the corporations. What begins now is the mining of metals on the seabed. This is dangerous and will surely disturb the ecology on the seabed. I do deliberately NOT use the words: "could" or "possibly". For two reasons: I am not afraid of the power of the industry, I know that I will be sued in case of doubt. But I also have enough life experience in an industrialized country to know exactly that the endangerment of nature, in favor of the acquisition of property, is accepted with approval.
For the sea creatures is it as like for you if anyone is driving with a caterpillar through your living room.
