Yep I have old used cars, old used bikes, all secondhand clothes, used music musical instruments, I buy very few new anything, I’m all about repurposing too,
Will, I’m not not just talk about lithium I’m talking about every rare earth metal and oil base plastics/all chemicals, sorry but I hate all chemical engineer kind of people if you say you’re in a chemical industry sorry I don’t like you, not personal I don’t like you professionally! Any kind of chemical thing to make a humans life easier makes the earths life harder!
To make all the pollution to basically make a fuel tank not to mention Electric motors all that wiring circuit boards made with gas chamber chemicals and rare earth magnets that no way will last 2-300,000 miles is stupid
RRR reuse, recycle etc.
See these other young folk you know very little about any kind of chemicals with everything that I dealt with all my life when I worked at or did work in factory’s, Machine shops, mills, card, printing, plastic extruding molding machine factories you name it when you would walk in the main area Your eyes would burn from all the chemicals and this is with all kinds of air filters (which I would maintain) air scrubbers, you name it,
I couldn’t even imagine how would be in Third World nations with no restrictions,
Probably about 2 to 300 times more pollution the USA,
