Cobalt is just one of many rare earth minerals that is required in batteries to provide back up storage for “renewable energy.”

Like many rare earth metals they are mined in poorer countries under unethical, unsafe and environmentally unfriendly conditions.

Rather than reduce CO2 emissions, they are being shifted offshore and hidden at the expense of innocent children.

I doubt their pain and suffering are counted in any climate models.

What does James Shaw have to say about this?
