Mining and recycling are two sides of a coin: The Climate Minute's Lithium Series (Episode 6)

Increasing demand for electric vehicles means increasing demand for lithium. New mining is damaging, but recycling lithium will reduce that damage. We speak with an expert on the benefits of recycling, but also consider the concrete steps we should take now to ensure a robust recapture process in the future.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.
