This is total misinformation. Even the US has plenty of lithium. We just stopped mining it to buy it cheaper elsewhere. (It’s not really mining iirc).
We used to be the #1 producer through 1980, we used it for nuclear weapons.
...Also recycling, it is a thing.
More misinformation. Tesla is just now dealing with the disposal issue. They bury it in Nevada. Show me your lithium recycle plants.
Solar cells cannot be recycled. They get buried.
Wind mills don't last long, and many get buried. Some recycling goes on for steel and copper, the rest is buried or abandoned.
The next generation will figure it out. Like every generation.
