Lithium is used for batteries, specialty glass, lubricants, pharmaceuticals and lithium alloys. Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries have become the rechargeable battery of choice in cell phones, computers, hybrid-electric cars and electric cars. Demand for lithium carbonate is expected to increase four-fold over the next decade as production of lithium-ion battery-powered hybrid-electric and electric cars rises. GM, Ford, Toyota, Dodge, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Tesla, Saturn and Mercedes-Benz have all announced plans to build Li-ion battery-powered cars and the demand for such vehicles is currently expected to increase five-fold by 2012. Hey this is good news I think; we should receive some kind of stimulus; turn in your old car, get a new electric car and start eliminating our oil addiction. WAIT! Where does lithium come from? Out of the ground just like oil, there is trillions of dollars worth in Afghanistan; the Pentagon says so:

Better look this over good before we jump. Can lithium-ion batteries be recycled? How are lithium-ion batteries to be disposed of? How long are lithium batteries going to last? How many miles? Is there another path we can take to get off oil as soon as possible? Which path is the most ecologically sound? No, we will put profit ahead of all.

Nope can’t buy this one. Why do they need it?, I thought Bp was going to hire the fishermen That BP’s stupidity put out of business they all live around the gulf don’t they. BP would like to control them leave no room for the press to get the story on BP cost cutting and bungling. I am  Sorry but  but any one who worked on the rig and knew about the safety and environmental issue’s and didn’t blow the whistle should be out of work they cared nothing about other peoples losses. We need to get away from this fossil  fuel crap quickly but we can’t because there are no alternatives in place because the oil company’s spend big dollars to keep us running to the gas pumps…

I could not find a I 1068 petition anywhere in the town I live in so I took a run to Seattle found and signed the petition  in a friendly white center joint called BIG AL’s, a good place to drink good beer too. My camera lies like a oil company president about the date of this picture.  It was Jun 9 2010 northbound I 5 in the Skagit  Valley WA. The scene Matches my mood generated by the events in the gulf of Mexico. Will we continue this insanity, drilling deep into the seabed a mile below the surface A little like playing chicken with semi trucks. Now the guts of the planet pour into the sea, covering the surface with a thin film suffocating the lungs of the planet The oil Vip,s and scientists spray dispersant another million gallons or so the oil breaks up and sinks out of sight out of mind until the mix lies on the clean white sand and the vapors rise, slow death to even the high flying birds…

SUPPORT CLEANER ALTERNATIVE ENERGY.         SUPPORT  I 1068.

Hunt Oil

Ray L Hunt

Encouraged by the North Sea discovery (the company had again found oil in an area others had passed over), Hunt Oil decided to further expand its search for new opportunities abroad. This led Hunt to the Republic of Yemen, an ancient nation with rugged geography believed by most to be devoid of oil despite its location on the oil-rich Arabian Peninsula. In 1981, Hunt Oil Company signed a production sharing agreement with the government of Yemen and began operations. The only active oil company in the region, Hunt discovered a major oil field in 1984. The company subsequently constructed a 423-kilometer (263-mile) pipeline across harsh mountains to the Red Sea, and Yemen joined the ranks of oil exporting countries reaching production levels in excess of 150,000 barrels per day. Large reserves of natural gas, estimated at 10 trillion cubic feet, have also been discovered.
