WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

So Cobalt is a key ingredient for Lithium batteries for electric vehicles.

The State of California just passed a law that will ban Petroleum engines by 2035.

So Electric vehicles can only be sold in California after 2035.

The country with the largest Cobalt reserves is the Congo.

Currently China is making its move in the DRC while it appears the USA is asleep at the wheel.

China is currently the worlds number one producer of Lithium batteries…..

Lots to consider….. What does it all mean?

Nutsin yet no mention of the billion dollar cannabis industry in CA all being grown under high powered lights when it grows perfectly well outdoors in the climate.

So Nevada and California are expecting a heat wave that will go into next week. Because of this people are expected to run their a/c to keep cool.

So Governor Newsom is asking Electric vehicle owners not to charge their cars due to the stress it places on the grid.

We are being warned of black outs.

Fuck knows what’s gonna happen when everyone is driving an EV. Hope they have a solid plan in place to meet the expected increase in demand.

Couple more 1953's and I'll have gained a riverside apartment in Belvedere, without having to move.

Will get rid of a shit-load of unsightly light industry works nearby, too.

What's not to like?

Societies will migrate to wherever it is easiest to live.

Energy sources will be more prominent in the mix simply because modern society is more energy dependent.

In the past it was where food sources were easiest to harvest, then when excess production kicked in, places of exchange and transport kicked in. These have mainly shaped societies for about 500 years - maybe a lot longer.

The discovery of water power centralised communities around where water mills worked best, same for wind power & windmills, although in a few cases, windmills were constructed close to water mills when the water source disappeared simply because the infrastructure was already there.

We may all have to move to Milton Keynes.

Re: Cobalt
I would think a broad energy mix would mitigate the kind go problems we are currently seeing. Not relying just on electricity would seem wise.

What is synthetic fuel made from and how much does it cost to produce?

Is it not simply the 21st century's (read 6th form debating society's) answer to coal gas?

Re: Cobalt

Hydrogen is also the transition of choice for all those already in the sector - like the oil majors. The theory is they can pivot their existing gathering, processing and transportation infrastructure from natural gas and oil to hydrogen.

I understand that would be the 'holy grail' in order to have a massive advantage over electric vehicles in selling the idea to the world.

Re: Cobalt
I think that synthetic fuel would just be delaying the inevitable as electric vehicles have plenty of advantages.
There was talk of using hydrogen the same way.

Re: Cobalt

Price of petrol in 2035, at whatever cost, will be a trickle-feed expense, as opposed to the (£30K + 13 years inflation) truly extortionate price of any half decent EV.
I suspect that by then (just like the Covid / vaccinations scam) the EV agenda will have been exposed for what it is, ergo, a globalist / elitist money spinner.

Why would there have to be 'emission free production' of synthetic fuel? The EV boys are hardly in a position to preach on that one...

Who in their right mind wants an EV in the current situation?
The 'Hooray / Woke' brigade would shoot their own feet off if they were told it was good for the environment. Idgits.

Isn’t F1 moving to synthetic fuel in a couple of years?

Bungo 12:25 Sat Aug 27
Re: Cobalt
I had an interesting conversation with somebody at a senior level in the motor industry.

Apparently there is a lot of research into synthetic fuel at the moment which if successful, will allow vehicles with conventional engines to function without producing any undesirable emissions. Clearly the industry will need to develop both emission-free fuel, and emission-free production of the fuel for it to be viable.

Not sure how far along this is, or what the chances are of success, but I understand this is being kept under wraps, so as not to slow down the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.
