Isn't lithium extremely poisonous? So huge pools of poison and nobody thinks hey maybe wildlife might be affected? Or heck what if some of that chemical gets in the air when a storm comes through. I'm sure it's not complete evaporation with zero left over poison compounds in the resulting atmosphere.

Compare this to what we were doing as a species 10,000 years ago If we do not kill ourselves first, one day, humans will become gods.

Es increíble como Chile hace las cosas mejores y mejores. El país vecino de Bolivia tiene sus reservas de Litio pero su gente y sus gobernantes sólo mes interesa tomar robar y flojear. Adelante Chile. Vivía en Bolivia por años y sigue las misma mierda.....

Sodium based batteries are being devoloped, having 3x the energy density of lithium. This sodium will be easily extraced from sea water. Goodby Chilean economy!

It boggles the mind how men, begin and run enterprises like this...The logistics are humbling to consider and this is easy mining...Those gold, diamond, oil mines, and many other commodities are huge endeavors are so extensive it makes you wonder who could have done it all!...I learn something new everyday on Youtube; After 12 years and thousands of hours, it never ceases to surprise me! Thanks youtube...:)

Our technology is limited to the resources we have available to create with.... that's kind of depressing...I suppose they will need to invent new materials or alter existing ones to suit further developments in technology. Words. Numbers. Stuff.

Lithium isnt the actual fuel it just stores electricity, after the lithium battery is made someone has to manually fill it with electricity.

Lithium was discovered and first used to relieve depression. No wonder why the worker guy sounds really happy, I’m sure the employees are inhaling fumes from the evaporation process lol.
