What a bunch of shit. It's supposed to be funny, but it just shows how completely retarded and lost these people are.

Do you know the Carbon Foot Print of a Wind Mill how many tons of Iron ore they must excavate and how many tons of coal they must burn to process it? Talk about Batteries Lithium is mined from huge Open Pit mines..

Easy way to make an electric car owner wig out. Ask where their electricity is produced? many,not all, ill of course not know nor like the answer.

Tech tip; know where the electricity production source is that feeds their car.

Ask them what the recycling plan is on the toxic battery as well.

I don't know much about these battery recycling plans, only familiar with the old cathode ray picture tubes the older tv's used and what their plan was. When we bought the prius, the manufacture pretty much guaranteed they'd last at least 10 years, claimed they were still running at full capacity on the 2001 prius and that was back in 2012. What i'm getting at is, those batteries don't fail that often unless the vehicle is in an accident. I'm guessing you may be paying some sort of disposal cost built into the price when you initially purchase the car.

As production ramps up across all brands on electric vehicles there will be a problem with battery disposal. We know its a problem inside the industry just no one talks about it.

From what i gather recycling plants for these batteries will be designated to strip the batteries of all useful metals and materials used to rebuild new batteries once electric/hybrid vehicle production ramps up. I guess their striving for zero landfill when all said and done.

We must have at least 40 of them at the shop that we cant find anyone that will take them. So I guess they will just keep piling up

40 in a shop, in Elmira? What the heck is in Elmira that would have that many batteries? Only thing I've ever noticed in Elmira is potato farms. LOL.
