|Capitalistic profit driven society is all about resource depletion. Now that that big wind and big battery corporations are building millions of wind turbines, tens of millions of battery cars, they are in charge. And they won't ever stop building more and more. Greed for profit, not CO2, is ruining this planet. They want jobs. They want money. And they are killing the planet in the process. Consuming resources. Overpopulation. Pollution. CO2 ain't the evil they make it to be. They are the ones who are truly evil. And the scary thing is they don't even know it. Thoughts?|
|I think CO2 is the problem, least for the greedy folks. As CO2 increases in the atmosphere, plants and trees will do a lot better, produce a lot more food. An increase supply of farm goods, means lower prices, less profit. It'll be tougher to manipulate prices, and get away with it, since folks could just go back to growing their own food. Surpluses could be converted to biofuels, which would compete with petroleum products, again threatening to reduce prices, and profits|

I was hearing that great hubs of wind turbines in the south/west UK (some earlier constructions) have been inoperable and so unused for up to 10 years now - because the funds, parts and specialist labour needed to fix them simply doesn't exist... and so they simply sit there - as a beacon to global environmental push that never was... Are all these expensive environmental and GW projects going to phase out after, say, 10 to 20 years?!? Well I guess a lot of money will have been made by then, mostly by millionaires/billionaires, and then they will have to invent the next catastrophe with which to make a huge profit out of us? Or as I say: follow the gravy train...

Lithium oxide is an very common material. Now if you want to consider something almost as common as sand as a 'depleted resource', that's your problem. Things like oil and natural gas are renewable resources. Coal may or may not be, but there is plenty of it available.
Capitalism has this thing in it called 'price discovery'. If a resource become difficult to obtain, it's price goes up and people start looking for alternatives. It's self correcting. People always want a lower price, after all.
