@nsgov announced new rebates for electric vehicles yesterday. Mining makes #greentech like electric cars possible because they are mostly made of minerals and metals.

For example, an e-car has 183 pounds of copper wiring in it because copper is used in every major component from the motor to the inverter and the electrical wiring. There is about four times more copper in an e-car than in a car with an internal combustion engine.
There are about 400 electric cars on Nova Scotia roads - a total of over 73,000 pounds of copper!
An electric car uses 25-50 grams of silver, so Nova Scotia’s 400 e-cars contain about 15,000 grams of it.

recently contracted a newly-built pilot plant facility owned and operated by CIMMS (cimms.ca) to further tweak the #li recovery process and the demonstration of commerical scalability.

SR 1.5 recommended we stay below 1.5ºC by 2100, yet oddly allowed for overshoot pathways. An overshoot would cost us in biodiversity and global food security, as well as further weaken the climate by accelerating warming past more tipping elements. Image
To avoid hitting more tipping elements, we need to switch from fossil fuels to renewables asap, increase energy efficiency, & deploy more renewable power. All the while increase DAC R&D. Tons of room for innovation here! IEA is already planing iea.li/2VQB0Pn

The World Bank says production of minerals and metals could increase 500% by 2050 to meet demand for #greentech and #cleanenergy.
The following thread is a quote from pubdocs.worldbank.org/en/96171158887…

#nspoli #cbpoli #novascotia #capebreton #mining #minerals Image
"Under a 2-degree scenario, production of graphite, lithium, and cobalt will need to be significantly ramped up by more than 450 percent by 2050—from 2018 levels—to meet demand from energy storage technologies."
#nspoli #cbpoli #greentech Image
"Though demand for some base minerals, like aluminum and copper, appears to be smaller in percentage terms, their absolute production figures are significant, at 103 million tons and 29 million tons by 2050, respectively."

[Pour débattre]

La @Conv_Citoyenne se réunit pour un 6ème WE de travail : les 150 vont-ils laisser l'exécutif, comité de gouvernance et les juristes édulcorer leurs propositions ?

@attac_fr les appelle à s'affranchir du carcan qu'on veut leur imposer

france.attac.org/se-mobiliser/j… Image
C’est l’heure de vérité : les 150 membres de @Conv_Citoyenne vont-ils continuer à faire preuve de détermination, ou bien, face aux pressions contraires et à l’inertie institutionnelle auxquelles ils commencent à être confrontés, vont-ils être gagnés par une forme de résignation ?
Les 150 membres de la @Conv_Citoyenne savent désormais sur quel pied danser : @EmmanuelMacron leur a clairement indiqué qu'il agirait comme "filtre" en dernier ressort pour trier entre les mesures acceptables par le pouvoir et celles qui ne le seraient pas.

Some say the world does not need to mine more #gold. If that were true, gold's price would be zero - that's simple supply and demand. But gold's price is $1400-1500 per ounce and rising.
We all use gold every day in #electronics, medicine, #GreenTech, etc. We need it.
#nspoli #NS ImageImageImage
We cannot just take gold from people and institutions that currently own it and use it for other purposes. That would be like kicking someone out of their house and moving in. There is no legal or ethical basis for doing it. Image
People have used gold as a safe investment for thousands of years because of its intrinsic value. It is used as a safe haven by investors and countries’ central banks to hedge against economic volatility. Image
