Going Green With Lithium Has Environmentalists Torn

Battle lines are currently being drawn between environmentalists and industrialists over a proposed mine in Northern Nevada. But the resource in question isn’t a climate change causing fossil fuel, it’s lithium, which makes this conflict much more complicated. Even according to the Biden administration, if the US wants to hit its ambitious emissions targets for a new green future, the country needs to start mining its own lithium to keep up with EV and battery demands. And it turns out there are vast lithium reserves in the American west.

VICE News wades into this messy conflict to see what is an acceptable price to pay for a carbon free future.
