definitely not - that mining is a serious local problem but not an overall global problem

burning oil at the rates humans are doing it, in contrast, IS a serious global problem

and...
[1] the mining can be done in a more responsible fashion
[2] the mining produces something that can be, and is, recycled; oil is not recycled when burned as a fuel
[3] rare earth metals are not rare - they are very common

posting clearly non-factual information does not promote understanding of the problems


yes, the Govt subsidizes the development of any other alternative fuel forms (hydrogen, CNG, etc.), but not the same extent that oil usage is subsidized
