(may be) Congratulations on Buying an Electric Vehicle!

Did anyone at the dealership share #thefullstory with you?


You just purchased an #electricvehicle. The #batterycells use #nickel. The demand for #nickel will increase as the world will need more batteries for electric vehicle production. "Norilsk Nickel is the world’s biggest producer of #palladium and high-grade #nickel and a top producer of #platinum, #cobalt and #copper. At 1.9 million tons of #sulfur dioxide emissions annually, Norilsk produces as much #sulfur #pollution as the entire United States. — all concentrated in a city the size of Eugene, Oregon."


Your new electric vehicle should have this insert in the glove compartment: How Norilsk, in the Russian Arctic, became one of the most polluted places on Earth.



“Sustainability is a paradox worth solving by making choices.”

It's a "sustainability paradox," says Kris Van Nijen, managing director of Global Sea Mineral Resources, a deep sea mining contractor for Belgium. "On the one hand, we have a whole world demanding we deal with climate change ... [but] there is not one solution that does not impact biodiversity that actually helps to mitigate climate change, because, in the end, we have to do something and we have to make choices."


The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another


Energy choices. Transition from one energy source to another. Higher volatility.
