If you thought that poor Chinese people that are dying like flies because of air pollution are so far away that we should not really bother, I have a bad news for you. The great deception of "Clean Diesel" financed by German and other European auto-makers and Oil industry is taking its toll on all citizens in all major Capitals of Europe. German auto-makers were playing "Green Hydrogen" ideas at the turn of the century and after total fiasco to produce any commercially viable cars moved to "Clean Diesel" technology. Priced below Petrol cars Diesel model versions have been taking market by the storm. Now we are finally allowed to know the price we are all paying for it. I will repeat it one more time, it is not about just China - it is all over the world: to let people die of Air Pollution is a Mass Murder. We have the technology to address it.
Elon Musk alone has made for our survival more than all politicians combined. While some journalists paid by oil companies are still searching for more polluting electric cars than ICE ones, he is making the impossible. His Tesla Motors has demonstrated the potential of lithium technology and now Tesla Model X and Model 3 will make it into the mass market for electric cars. Solar City and Tesla Energy will address another looming energy crisis and will make Solar work 24/7. The news from China that every day 4,000 people are dying because of air pollution sounds like mass murder in our time, the same is happening in the West as well. We have the technology to address these problems, we just need more Elon Musks.
Electric cars are not just about style and incredible performance - only they can keep us the right to personal mobility without killing everything around. It is not about money or new advance economy any more - it is about survival. U.S is moving very slowly in that direction, but I just read that 16 states are trying to block Obama's Clean Power Plan. Dollar can still open a lot of doors and dirty politicians hearts (if they have any). China is not a blessing in a lot of issues, but at least "they get it" - you cannot built the new economy with Q by Q performance. You need long term plan in place. They have one: electric cars are the strategic industry now. Under the radar screens the best technology is brought into the country, the best lithium deposits are acquired and the best lithium facilities are being built. Now China controls 75% of Hydroxide Lithium, which goes in the EVs batteries.
International Lithium is working with Ganfeng Lithium, which supplies Panasonic for its cells for Tesla Motors lithium batteries and companies like BYD, Boston Power and LG Chem. It is very tough now in junior mining space, but I am very proud that our Team has managed not only to save our projects, but is rapidly developing them. Financing and technology from Ganfeng Lithium makes all the difference for us. We are making world the better place. Enjoy your electric ride powered by Lithium and watch your kids grow to enjoy the blue sky.
Lithium Boom: Warren Buffett's BYD Qin Made To The World's Top Three Best Selling Electric Cars In June.
International Lithium Corp. Reports on Continuing Work in Argentina and Ireland With Ganfeng Lithium.
Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, "Our projects are advancing in tandem with rising lithium prices. The lithium supply chain is being stressed even before the commissioning of the Tesla Gigafactory and other megafactories from BYD, Foxconn, Boston Power and LG Chem. Our joint ventures with Ganfeng Lithium demonstrate that cooperation between companies with varying expertise in the raw materials supply chain can work to secure a supply of strategic commodities. In this case, lithium which is necessary for the clean energy initiatives announced by the U.S. and China. These two countries alone will provide mass markets for electric cars and home energy storage units increasing the demand for lithium batteries."
