Another myth against Electric Cars is destroyed by German technical inspection group TUV Nord. It is very important that this news is coming from Germany. German auto-makers have invested billions in Hydrogen at the turn of this century without a lot of progress to show and after that in the concept of the "Clean Diesel."

Lithium Catalyst: Hydrogen Dreams And Write-down Of Two-thirds Of US Shale Oil Explodes Fracking Myth.
If you have noticed, last few weeks Hydrogen powered cars were seriously pumped by some media outlets and auto-makers. Elon Musk was stealing media attention by makingthe headlines with his Tesla Motors Gigafactory and UK "occupation" by Tesla Model S, but now we have another very important reason for Hydrogen story revival.
"We have discussed with you my personal vision of the Market for Electric Cars and Lithium Industry developments yesterday. I might be very "responsibly conservative" for the prospects of our Lithium Battery Industry after all! Today you get the bold vision from our Electric rEvolution leader-in-chief Elon Musk. AutoBlogGreen reports: "Tesla CEO Elon Musk Expects "Hundreds" Of Battery Gigafactories. Read more."
I am sceptical about Hydrogen and picture below shows the Hydrogen economics - Battery Electric Cars are much more efficient. Add here the billions of dollars needed to be invested for the infrastructure to be in place and you will get the picture who is sponsoring the effort. Read more."
No Danger From Magnetic Fields In Electric Cars As Their Sales Have Doubled Every Year For Three Years.
I have another very important development to share with you today. As with every new technology, consumers are right to be concerned with the potential dangers to their health. Electric Cars have received the clean bill of health in the report concluded by researches from seven countries. PhysOrg reports:
"Researchers from seven countries have concluded that we can feel safe both in electric-powered cars and in those powered by hydrogen, petrol and diesel. None of them exposes passengers to higher electromagnetic fields than those recommended in international standards. In fact, field intensity is well below the recommended value. The study is currently the most comprehensive ever carried out in this field. RhysOrg."
I hope that nobody needs any more confirmation where the real danger comes from for our health now. According to WHO: "World's Urban Air Quality Going From Bad to Worse"
"GENEVA, Switzerland, May 12, 2014 (ENS) – Air quality in cities worldwide fails to meet World Health Organization guidelines for safe levels, putting millions at greater risk of respiratory disease, lung cancer and other serious, long-term health problems, the health agency said, releasing new data this week.About half the residents of reporting cities are exposed to air pollution at least 2.5 times higher than World Health Organization Air Quality Guideline levels.Only one in every eight people living in reporting cities breathes air that complies with the levels WHO recommends."
We are proud at International Lithium to be at the forefront of the new Electric Revolution and contribute to the making mass market for electric cars possible by developing our Lithium projects. Report from Transport Evolved shows that famous iPod moment has finally arrived to electric cars: their sales have doubled every year for three years: Read more."
