Mining damage is contributing to and compounding climate change. Hydrogen is the most plentiful resource in the universe. Oil extraction is not that much worse than mining, you're repeating Tesla ads

I'm having trouble with transactions not broadcasting. I should have had another comment after the previous chain, something like -

That's impossible in the current political climate though, EVs are just promoting faux environmentalism and consumerism with the current pivot back to non-renewable resources. Electricity isn't clean
  20d
Hydrogen's "safety" issues are laughable, Edison brought up the same arguments against alternating current back before it was widely used. It's obviously cleaner energy, don't parrot anti-science BS
  20d
I actually think you are repeating oil company FUD. Actual engineers and scientists disagree with your assessments. Tesla is like BCH. Most people get lost in the FUD.

Mining damage is not a significant factor in climate change. Hydrogen safety issues are very real. Also it's all looked up in other molecules and take energy to acquire. More energy than it provides.
  20d
It's not just the oil extraction that is a huge issue. It is the use of that oil. We need energy alternatives that do not require emitting CO2.
  20d
Lithium is a great resource for environmentalism. Just as nuclear power is important. The faux environmentalism is the efforts against these.

Check out the engineers video on the topic above. He is independent, and knows what he is talking about.

Lol Tesla has more fanboys than it does actual investors, more people get lost in its hype than FUD. I think you are the one who is biased

>Mining damage is not a significant factor in climate change

All credibility lost lol. Are you accounting for coal mining as well?
  20d
Dumping coal waste is a huge contributing factor to coral and algae die-off, ocean acidification, mass extinctions and general air and water pollution. You're coming off as massively misinformed
  20d
*Mining waste, my mistake. Strip mining is also devastating to river and groundwater/cave/rainforest ecosystems. Tesla is just another piece of the big, shitty machine, sorry to burst your bubble
  20d
And again, there have been initiatives to boost EV usage since around 1900. They aren't new. Oil also contributes to a large amount of the electricity that charges them, it's changing nothing
  20d
We need resources. We need metals. Mining will always happen, and mitigating that damage is important. We can't stop all mining though. We can stop fossil fuel production and use though.
  20d
I am not saying that mining causes no damage, but that it causes different damage that is itself far less significant.
  20d
Obviously the end of using coal will mean the end of coal mining. Coal should be the first to go, then oil, and then gas. Coal being the worst, gas being the least, but still bad fossil fuel.
  20d
EV usage is old. Incentive to use it is new. EV's didn't take off a hundred years ago because gas was cheap, and people did not know about the damage. Also battery technology wasn't adequate then.
  20d
Local ecosystems are important. The entire globes ecosystem matters more though. Especially since we have triggered a mass extinction level evet already.
  20d
We have to pick and choose our environmental battles. When we do we can see that lithium mining causes insignificant damages in comparison.
  20d
It's not just the mining, but the use of what is mined.

When you car avoids the accidents you never knew were about to happen. (You can go to 40 seconds)

Tesla us getting even further ahead of the competition.

The Tesla Roadster 2 just looks so good.
