hah! nice edit. the original:

isn't it fun how the local problems of fossil fuels have become global problems? and where does all the contaminated water and radiation go? it doesn't stay in china....

and, as for your original post.... no kidding they are common. they are everywhere. but everywhere (except china) has shut down the mining (where those minerals are available in quantities worth mining) due to the enormous pollution cost.

why are you invested enough in batteries and EV's to be defending them? that is the question i find interesting, randy.
