But that’s okay, China believes in green energy and combating climate change! It’s leaders like the cold weather! It would never withhold these materials from the United States.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
President Joe Biden’s interior secretary acknowledged that a transition to electric vehicles increases America’s reliance on China, an admission that comes as the administration kills domestic mines that would produce the materials required to make those vehicles.
During a Tuesday House Appropriations Committee hearing, Pennsylvania Republican congressman Guy Reschenthaler grilled Interior Secretary Deb Haaland on China’s dominance of the green energy supply chain. The communist nation, Reschenthaler noted, controls the majority of the world’s “rare earth elements,” which are needed to produce electric vehicle batteries and other crucial components. “By deductive reasoning, that would mean that electric vehicles and renewables deepen our reliance on China, correct?” the Republican asked. “Yes, OK,” Haaland responded.

Cobalt mining for elec vehicles starts with slave labor. This article below, from, believe it or not, NPR:
Tesla and Prius drivers cruise around town with that holier than thou look about them, all the while they are funding slave labor overseas. Way to go.
And what’s even worse is, if you get in even a minor accident with one of those, the insurance usually totals it. There really isn’t an industry standard “fix” for damaged batteries, at least not yet.
So, yes…I personally consider electric cars the 21st century’s chariots of the Pharisees.
