Seriously? Take one guess where green-energy backers want to mine


A new report reveals that green energy advocates are thinking about ways to get the elements that are necessary for the massive expansion in the use of electric vehicles Joe Biden is demanding of Americans.

Obtaining those battery components like lithium now involve traditional mining, with open pits or mine shafts, that include significant generation of dust and byproducts.

Further, much of the production of essentials like lithium are controlled by America’s enemies, such as China.

Now the report from Just the News explains some scientists are suggesting “mining” the contents of magma.

From volcanoes.

The report explained, “Volcanoes have long been considered an abundant source of geothermal energy, through the conversion of underground heat. Such countries as Canada have been exploring ways to utilize the fiery ruptures for their net-zero emissions goal.”

The report said the Biden administration already has confirmed plans to spend $74 million on “geothermal systems,” and now scientists are talking about pulling nickel, copper, lithium, and zinc from those explosive events.

“Findings published by the University of Oxford suggest getting them from the volcanoes’ hot brines may be within reach,” the report revealed.

Oxford’s promotions reveal, “The prospect of extracting metals in solution form from wells” could “vastly [reduce] environmental impact of metal production.”

The problems cited with traditional mining include that the process to obtain one metric ton of lithium emits 15 times that of CO2, water pollution, and such.

And the reported pointed out only 5% of vehicle batteries are recyclable.

Research team lead Jon Blundy says the “green mining” idea “represents s a novel way to extract both the metal-bearing fluids and geothermal power, in a way that dramatically reduces the environmental impact of conventional mining.”

Taxpayers should expect to pay up, too, warns Larry Behrens of Power the Future.

“When you consider that supporters of this idea say they will need a ’substantial investment,’ the picture becomes a lot more clear,” Behrens told Just the News. “Out-of-the-box thinking and innovation are great, but they should be able to move forward without our money.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: To their horror, America’s ruling elites failed to knock out Donald Trump during his four years as president via the fabricated Trump-Russia collusion scandal – conceived and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign, as the Durham report proves – or through two circus-like impeachment trials. Later came “January 6,” a demonstration-turned-riot by Trump supporters who passionately believed, with good reason, that the recent election – and therefore their country – had just been stolen from them. Members of Congress now want to constitutionally bar Trump from again seeking public office for having instigated “an armed insurrection” (no protester was armed) against America.

Then in March, Trump was indicted in New York on 34 counts of falsifying business records, and in June, still more indictments were filed against Trump – 37 federal criminal charges related to his handling of classified documents. Honest legal experts not in league with the Biden administration openly classify these indictments as somewhere between frivolous and idiotic, not to mention grotesquely politically motivated.

The Deep State’s never-ending persecution of Donald Trump, as well as the incredible back story of the totalitarian agenda Trump’s persecutors are attempting to implement in America and why Trump represents a mortal threat to their nefarious designs – is the focus of the blockbuster July issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE PERSECUTION OF DONALD TRUMP: Why the ruling elites loathe – and fear – the 45th president.”
