Richest Lithium Deposit on the Planet Discovered in Maine but Environmental Laws Prohibit Mining It

"The richest known hard rock lithium deposit in the world lies a few miles northeast of the ski slopes of Sunday River and not far from Step Falls, where swimmers can wade in shallow pools formed by hundreds of feet of cascading granite ledge.



The current value is estimated at 1.5 billion, but what’s that in today’s terms? A spec on a clover resting on the debt sled barreling toward the bottom of the lithium mine, if you take my meaning.

Yes, that 1.5 billion might be great for Maine’s economy, shovel ready jobs and all, but the flip side of pretending that mining lithium (and while we’re at it, making batteries made with it) isn’t a nasty carbon-intensive process is that the false green god cannot be fed without it.



“We know that the Maine mining laws are such that there’s not one single active mine in Maine,” said Mary Freeman, who owns the land with her husband, Gary, a co-author on the paper describing the find."

China can mine and control this resource: eh, Marxists?

President Biden has at least 1.5 billion reasons not to allow the lithium to be mined. That's the capital stake the Chinese have in son Hunter's investment firm. Oh, special climate envoy John Kerry's son is a partner in the same investment firm.

You gotta hand it to the Chinese, if they'd just paid the Biden and Kerry crime families off they could only threaten to expose the payments destroying the puppets in the process but the threat of withdrawal of some or all of their investment gives them continuing leverage over the POTUS and Climate envoy. Kim Jung Biden has to make do with only $15 million from whoring out his public office but Kerry literally married a rich widow, twice, giving him a share of over $400 million. Nonetheless the sons of these grifters have toured the world as daddy's bagman.

But at least there are no more mean tweets, so we have that going for us.
