I think this is because our fed.gov is currently doing its very best to discourage and even prevent resource extraction.
Quite correct. Recent attempts to turn this around and resume mining seem to have generated more paperwork than mineral resources. Makes you wonder how much money the CCP is funneling into the hands of the environmental bureaucracy or other useful idiots.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

The TV segment I saw wasn't even about mining within a country's own territory. It was control of the resource globally. China seems to have a lock on lithium, cobalt, and the rare earths in Africa and elsewhere.

It'll have to be on the scale of something like matches wiping out rubbing two sticks together to start a fire.

Seems to me California is missing a huge opportunity here.  It's time to re-establish Tulare lake.  Turn it into a reservoir and be a good custodian of its drainage and capacities.  If Tulare lake used to be the largest fresh water body west of the Mississippi and existed naturally, what numb *expletive deleted*ck decided to drain it, then turn it into farmland, and irrigate it from a sandstone riverbed 200 miles away (Lakes Mead and Havasu and the Colorado River)?
Even if they didn't turn the entire area into a reservoir, it ought to occur to someone that digging a big reservoir out of part of the area would go a long way to solving their water problems.  I would think Arizona and Nevada would start making that point very loud and clear considering their water shortages.

Dams and reservoirs DID occur to many people, including Old Man Governor Brown and also Gov Brown JR during both his terms. These guys were big democrats and they still got kiboshed by the enviros, hippies, Sierra Club, etc.

And the current government in California would never allow it.  They are actively aiding and abetting water shortages.  It's a method of control.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

 New England's "Dark Day." May 19, 1780
The History Guy posted this only a couple weeks ago.
https://youtu.be/EPQz9FpdOrw

Quote
On May 19, 1780, Historian Thomas Campanella explains, “A preternatural gloom settled upon the New England landscape, and by noon the sun had been all but blotted from the sky.” New England’s “Dark Day”  was read as an omen, even, perhaps, as the biblical end of days.  But the question has persisted for nearly two and a half centuries- what could have blotted out the Sun?

This may have happened before!!?  The hell you say!   :O

Remember the plans they starting hatching in the 70s to warm the earth because we were all going to freeze to death.

The US is among the cleanest. "Shocking" I know.

World's most polluted countries REVEALED - and the worst might surprise you…
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-12144455/Worlds-polluted-countries-REVEALED-worst-surprise-you.html





Those maps aren't very significant to me.  They're mixing / allowing too many variables into the results, including level of medical care and population density and household air conditioning (or lack thereof) and who knows what the hell else.
 
Greeenland should not be a surprise.  If you have a population of two, and one dies of particulate damage (like powdered snow), voila!, you have a 50% death rate.  I'm not really just joking here, but presenting an example of possibilities for statistical hokeyage. (I just now invented that word.)

What I do see is "hot and dry" = 'high particulate levels," and "hot and dry" = "equatorial-temperate regions."  The Sahara, I am told, is a terrific generator of dust pollution in the region.

I remember an old SciFi short story like that.  Seems like this is not a global warming solution.  This is a "the sun is expanding" solution a good ways into the future.  We have a little time to think about it.

In case you want to know where a lot of China's lithium is going
It's sitting in fields of abandoned EVs

I want to guess the reason was someone was told to make them and was never told to stop regardless of whether or not someone wanted them.

Ep096 CO2 Benefits / Cranky Climate Deniers / Social Control -Kosmographia -Randall Carlson Podcast
The Randall Carlson
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLy2mLOEQoU

Randall Carlson talks about the plant carbon cycle and studies showing the benefits of elevated CO2 to plant growth.  It is 2 hours, but might be good information if you haven't seen this info before. 

He also mentioned something that has come up before.  CO2's ability to trap heat declines significantly as the concentration goes up to the point that additional CO2 does not significantly increase trapped heat.

A couple videos talking about wind turbine waste.

This video just shows a pile of wind generator blades dumped somewhere. 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQicWEp9P-s

This video talks about recycling options.  Talks about a company trying to grind them down to make cement.  Not used in the cement, but to burn it. 
Another guy talks about reusing blades.  The pictures of the uses are laughable (after 6 minutes).  Seems like desparate, wishful thinking.

I will make the bold prediction that average temperatures will get lower in the next 6 months (at least in the Northern Hemisphere).  I know it goes against the grain, but I am confident it will happen.
