Child miners aged four living a hell on Earth so YOU can drive an electric car

The fact is, though it takes 33lbs or more to produce an electric vehicle battery. Lithium ion batteries already require larger amounts of cobalt which accounts to over 60%. Only 40% is being used for other things and less than 10%  being used by gasoline refining. 10 grams may not seem like a lot for cellphone batteries but it adds up. This was already a concern when lithium ion batteries took shape besides the volatile nature of lithium ion batteries. Yet we’re still using it in everyday devices and now the UK wants to ban combustion engine vehicles for lithium ion powered vehicles. That 60% will jump to 70+%. As the battery density starts to rise so does the need for cobalt which the primary use for it in lithium ion batteries is to keep the batteries cool. Since more technology advances so does the battery cooling methods. And lithium ion batteries in EVs consume a ton. 33lbs for one car. Imagine how much cobalt is needed to run the upcoming Hummer EV. Rivian has an electric truck that uses over 7k batteries which is twice the amount of a Tesla battery so you’re looking at 66lbs or more for a light duty truck. I dont even want to think about how much cobalt is required to run that Tesla semi.

The child laboring has been an issue since the dawn of time but I can think of nothing worse than children dying just to spend weeks on end just to mine one EV battery.

The fact is however nothing is being done. I’ve written this as a Christian to implore everyone to pray for the Congo children because they dont deserve this. We dont deserve lithium ion battery technology.

We get it you need a cellphone to stay in contact with family and friends. It’s a great way to keep updated on news. It’s also a tool to bring this despicable tragedy due to the greed of “clean air zero emissions electric cars”. We also get why you want an electric vehicle. But battery electric is not the answer. And its clear that we need a lot more cobalt to manufacture more EV batteries, something that really is not a sustainable future, especially when majority of lithium ion battery cobalt is being mined by innocent children. I had almost forgotten about these poor children until I watched another video on the horrid conditions from mining cobalt for lithium ion batteries. The main reason I had always been against battery electric in the first place.. it’s not just the terrible range, long recharge times or the cold and hot weather zapps the batteries lifespan. The government wants everyone to switch to electric but how can we when the cost of human life is far worse than what we are potentially doing to the planet.

I got into an argument over a fool who thinks that it’s ok to let children mine 33lbs of cobalt for just 1 vehicle vs ounces needed to manufacture gasoline that has the potential to last decades. I dont have exact measurements on this subject or how much cobalt children are mining for gasoline refinement but EVs are the main contribution to cobalt mining. The laptop computers are secondary to all other lithium ion batteries.

Its downright evil and if climate change were to end us all I dont want the blood of children on my hands just so i don’t have any tailpipe emissions. Regardless where that cobalt comes from a large chunk will go to electric vehicles. The enormous psychological and physical damage these kids will have to endure in the future because “battery electric is the future” is downright evil and no one should be standing for it. We need to reduce our use of cobalt starting with BEVs. No one can force you to buy a battery electric vehicle, not even the government. Dont let them do it. Keep buying gasoline until hydrogen can make it’s way to the market and be a real ethical solution to our tailpipe emissions.

Again, pray for the children in Congo and support them by refusing to buy battery electric vehicles. You can also extend your cellphone or tablet batteries (any lithium ion batteries) by keeping a charge of 40-80%. Get a Goal Zero Guide 10 that uses nickel metal hydride batteries (and Eneloops) if you dont have anywhere to charge. Avoid buying anything that uses lithium ion technology and instead use Eneloops. Besides my cellphone I haven’t bought anything that uses lithium ion batteries since 2005. And I dont plan to. Anything that reduces the necessity of cobalt. You could even buy a more economical vehicle like a gas Honda or Toyota. Dont buy the hybrids that may use the lithium ion batteries. Again, pray for the children in Congo. Maybe if there is a massive strike or ban against lithium ion and cobalt in general maybe things could change but for now avoid the lithium ion technology due to the excessive use of cobalt used in these batteries.

Edit addition: Also I just saw on the news. Democrats most pressing issue: transgender equality. Oh God. We have so much corruption and greed in this country this is what the dems talk about. Please God we really need saving!

 

So on one of my pages on Facebook is being targeted by LGBT fanatics. The way I think it works is if enough people report a post they get Facebook to respond. Well the guys at Facebook can’t deal with the truth.

One of the main ones is that they dont like it when people say “transgenderism is a mental disorder”. It IS a mental disorder. When people ask if your a doctor its basically telling you that if your mechanic told you your tires are wood and others start saying the same thing but you know the tires are rubber yet you got a group of people telling you it’s not rubber.

This is what we are dealing with here,  men claiming to be women and vise versa. Before I continue I think we need a moment of prayer here. I’m not one to do it all the time but at this point it’s all we can do here. And we definitely need it.

“Dear God, please help our sick world that is so far deep into corruption and misinformation that we need your guidance to fix and rectify. We have so much theft, anger, hatred, deception and corrupt people in this world that is affecting others lives. Right now we have people advocating the acceptance of males switching to females. The professionals are not doing the right thing and treating it as a mental illness but instead using this opportunity to deceive others. This is not right. Please help us fix our world.”

Ok we got that out of the way. The truth is that this is our world. And we’re taking poor care of the people in it. Too much selfishness that is going unchecked and no control over it.

Transgenderism is a mental illness no matter what the professionals.

Eating disorders, delusions, obsession compulsive, are examples of mental illness. Transgender is a delusion. These people look in the mirror in their birthday suit and think that it’s wrong. Except the fact it’s not wrong. If you got a brain, two arms, two hands, two legs and two feet and everything is in place you are not wrong. If you are born female you’ll be a woman, a male as a man.

Its really that simple, transgenders and professionals are making this more complicated than it actually is. Maybe its because with almost 8 billion people on the planet people are confused on what sex or gender they really are.

Its unfortunate that these people can’t accept the truth. I get that sites generally control what content shouldn’t be shown but if you want to take away the freedom of speech from those that do not accept transgenders then there shouldn’t be posts of transgenders either. It goes both ways and if we cant show these people that transgenderism is wrong and give people the ability to do that then it becomes an agenda. Your choosing to silence those who do not accept and do not want to see the world become dysfunctional.

At the same time being silenced in social media could then lead to violent behavior. My page was suspended. It may even be deleted because some people refuse to hear the truth. Now I tolerate a lot of things.  But I lost it when my brother decided to go transgender and be a woman. It wouldn’t have mattered if we accepted him, other people dragged him down, sexually/physically abused him and if I happened to be there I would have gotten dragged into fights. And I’m not a physical fighter. I probably would have ended up in the hospital with him.  This is exactly one of the problems with being transgender. I have already mentioned that transgenders are a target for violence and murder.  With Facebook suspending and banning accounts where do you think some people will turn next?

Stopping the freedom to share why transgender is wrong isnt going to stop people from doing things more drastic. I’m not a violent person but I took my frustration and placed it here. Trying to educate people that this is wrong. I did not write anything vulgar or anything. Transgenders think they are a minority like black or Asian but they’re not. You dont get to pick your skin color any more than you can change sex but people want to do it anyway like their bodies are like an inanimate object they can alter.

Sadly this transgender thing is so far out of control that it most likely will lead to worse violence. And you can’t stop people from thinking a certain way because this is far from being natural. Our bodies are not designed to be altered. Once you lose an arm or whatever it wont grow back. If you get shot or beaten to death you won’t come back. My brother committed suicide because he couldn’t deal with all the sex abuse and violent trauma. No one really can especially if you are already mentally ill. Transgenders are mentally unstable already, this leads to suicide because a few bad things happen to them they think the world will come to an end.

We really need to fix these people so their mind matches up with the body they were given to at birth. Because you can’t make a male into a woman. Its not possible other than surface changes and that is not the way to do things. It wont matter because in the end that “woman” will forever be male no matter the drugs, surgeries or clothes that they wear its impossible. Males and females are different. They were designed to be different. When you try to change that you change who you were meant to be.  Again.. this world needs prayers and a lot of work to do. This fight to correct transgenders to be their correct gender and not what they want to be, we’re starting to lose. We may be at that point in time where the system has to collapse in order to rectify this problem because an end of the world situation, only the strong will survive. I hate to see it end like that but I think I’ll witness the impending apocalypse when I’m looking for my dentures in a retirement home.

Also to reiterate, transgender is a deception. The act in which a male or female presents themselves as the opposite sex/gender is the very definition of deception. It doesn’t matter if its intentional or not it just IS deceptive. There is no way around that when you decided to swap genders/sex. If you dont like it, then be a proper person and don’t become transgender. If you dont like being the target of violence then dont be transgender. There is a lot of pain and grief when you are transgender and by silencing people like me on places like Facebook you are silencing a warning that being a transgender leads to constant rejection, pain and suffering. You will have problems finding a mate, job and many people do not like you whether they show it or not. With me, I dont support or like people switching genders/sex. I think its selfish, rude, disrespectful. It is wrong and goes against God. You dont respect your body, God or others. Transgenderism is selfish and you care more about yourself than others. I know it’s a mental disorder, but this isnt like eating yourself to death. People can’t control their eating disorder but if you have the sense to organize so much centering your life of being the wrong sex/gender you have the ability to learn and understand right from wrong. Some may cant control it like my brother who had a severe mental problem but I think many transgenders know that it’s wrong but they dont care because they choose to live selfishly.

Not a day after the Las Vegas shooting we are already talking about gun control. Just like any other tragic shooting instead of mourning the loss of people, the major talk is gun control.

Not that gun control is a bad thing but the problem is that anytime we have a major shooting the topic of gun control takes over the media. Celebrities are not helping, instead of giving out condolences they are complaining about the 2nd amendment rights.

All the whole completely ignoring the mental health state in America. For anyone to obtain illegal weapons and to willingly harm and murder people for any reason is a mental illness. Even though murder may not be an actual mental illness according to experts the mental health in America needs major improvement. Mental health often goes unnoticed and it is partly due to the inefficiencies of our social structure.

When people are often only thinking of themselves and monetary interests are more important than the health of civilization the mental health of society is degraded. We could implement a much better health program, the best to our ability however that would also be costly, with our current social/monetary system implementing the best mental healthcare would raise taxes far more comfortable than what people are willing to do.

That doesn’t mean it can’t be done, even, $0.05 extra in taxes a year per taxpayer would help improve things. Certainly if we are on the same page celebrities would most likely donate money to our mental healthcare giving more people access to this necessary service. However were not even in the same book on the subject of gun violence. It’s easier to blame guns because it doesn’t cost anything to taxpayers to limit who can own a gun. At some point, gun control can only go so far and it doesn’t prevent some psychopath from finding some way of inflicting harm to others.

On a side note, when we are talking about mental health it has to do more than a simple mental health evaluation. We need to simply talk. We need to record experiences and above all we need to stop being in our own world and start listening to others. A lot of our mental health issues is mainly due to a forced reality of forcing many people to do uncomfortable and even degrading acts. A hundred people are forced to do things one person decided to do. The Illinois, Cook county soda tax for an example is largely rejected but because of a select few, it was implemented. As a result, many Cook county residents are shopping in other counties, affecting businesses who was against the soda tax are losing money.

The mental health needs major improvement, but so long as we keep blaming guns for gun violence when we have a mental health crisis won’t solve the violence problems. When gun control reaches it’s limits, if gun violence won’t be an issue, there will still be violence so long as we continue to ignore the mental health issues in America and around the world.

All throughout my life i have kept going through my mind that i don’t want kids. I grew up in a rough childhood that i would never impose on another soul. The endless cycle of tormented souls is not my idea of a good time and my recent drama experiences this past week clearly shows how much life is so much of a douchebag. Now this is not to say i would never want to have kids or even adopt one it’s just that i am nowhere near the level of being ready, let alone the world isn’t just ready to have another me running around. I came across this article and i’m mystified why someone would argue over someone not having kids, Why Your Top 10 Reasons For Not Having Kids Are Stupid

Why? Even if i were to be a good parent (which i really don’t think so, i struggle with basic things), as a logical person we have more than enough people in this world. 7 billion. If we tried to bunch them all up in one area on the planet it would be very chaotic. I get mentally drained just from a day’s work, one of the reasons i am introverted is because i can only take being around so many people for so long before i need to relax. In reality i am just not the best fit to have a family.

I do not believe overpopulation is an issue, however with the social system we hold onto so much we have already exceeded the amount of people this system can carry (especially in some areas). We have more people than we do jobs with livable wages and besides that it’s rare to find a job that is stress free. I’ve heard some people say work isn’t supposed to be fun, but if you are not enjoying your job it’s going to make it that much harder to want to work 40+ hours so you can pay for that roof over your head and the vehicle to get to work. Besides feeling overwhelmed by the amount of people and the cost of living, people tend to have more than 3 children. I’ve heard of people having over 7 children (as high as 15). I have relatives who had children as high as 8. That’s too much, i am not judging these people because it’s not my life or any of my business, but it does factor in my reasons not to have children. That tends to go with population control. I’m not an advocate for reducing the population and genocide is just pure evil. However, i don’t see anything wrong with not wanting to have kids.

It is unclear if Christians frown on not wanting to have children, let alone sometimes i feel like my dad is disappointed in me for not having any kids yet (well or at least being in a relationship with someone). I don’t even want to discuss the subject with him, besides all the other reasons, i am not mentally capable of carrying for a child, birth or adopted doesn’t matter let alone i don’t care if people think i am ready or am capable of having children, i’m 37 years old but i feel like 60. I struggle with relationships, let alone with work and daily life so kids are really not even an option anyway, even if i wanted kids it would not happen regardless. I’m just trying to survive the day to day life.
