Do you want to discuss why electric is or is not just another pollution problem? You seem very certain of this but also seem to be pretty ignorant of the actual facts of it
I believe your main argument is the availability and pollution involved with lithium?
It mostly comes from salt flat brine, and definitely removes alot of otherwise usable water. But part of the adoption of batteries is the adaptation of batteries, it's constantly moving, research is constantly evaluating and developing materials which are less reliant on harmful or limited resources. But that development relies on the adoption of current technology for new technology to continue to evolve.
Secondly is we gotta consider recycling. I think by far the most valuable approach to minimizing pollution associated with battery cars specifically and vehicles in general is to improve recycling of lithium batteries. It helps nobody to complain about a problem - because yes pollution around lithium and battery mnaufacture is a real problem - but it helps noone to complain about it and offer no solution, stand in the way of progress, and do nothing but continue polluting the ways we always have.
and third if the problem is nonsustainable practice in 3rd world countries, shouldnt we spend more effort enabling a more universal set of controls in a global economy?
Really though, if you wanna make an impact with vehicles, the 1st biggest impac you can make is never uy new. not only is it a useless waste of money, manufacture of new cars is the lions share of the emissions for the first 50k miles or more
