    Lithium Dilemna

    The stark reality is humanity can’t make enough machines to have a significant impact on global energy consumption and CO2 emissions because the world's miners can’t provide the necessary raw materials. It's not just a question of lithium. The physical constraints on global production of aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, cobalt and a host of scarcer metals are staggering and the six billion people who simply want electric lights, a washing machine and maybe a refrigerator will not sacrifice their basic needs so that Tesla Motors (TSLA) can sell electric cars in California financed by a $465 million ATVM loan that it can’t possibly repay without an Exodus-class intervention from the Almighty.
