I perused the report for my entertainment and a sense of curiosity how all this mining was going to take place.

And well, no surprise it has to be "sustainable".

We can stop right there, because mining is not sustainable, just like oil extraction is not, and it is expensive, and dusty, and needs lots of energy to move heavy stuff around, break it up, and refine the rocks to the desirable end product, all the while emitting other metals into the air. It is just quite entertaing that one of these metals is cobalt. That is not an environmentally friendly metal.

Where is all the mining going to take place? Third world countries where the locals do not have the funds, or know how to set up large mining operations, let alone make them sustainable.

And just like before large corporations will do it for them and the locals will get a fraction of the value.

And then the transportation nightmare starts to move the metals to where they are needed, so that means rail cars, bulk shipping, etc. All through large landmasses where there is no infrastructure to do this "sustainable".

All the while emitting CO2 throughout this entire process.

None of this matters, the politicians don't have the mental capabilities to understand, and if they could, would chose self interest over feasibility. Trillions will be wasted.

The useful idiots will chant, and buy electric vehicles.
