Limitations to mining for electricity

Ronald Stein

The key limitation of “green” minerals and metals is that they cannot manufacture any of the products used in society that are made from fossil fuels.

The poverty of the world’s population is real and exacerbated by an intractable political problem. Foreign aid never reaches the citizens but is stolen by the elites and the rulers. Elections are rigged. Free speech does not exist. The fact is, tyrants, dictators, and corrupt elected leaders have zero incentive to have prosperous, healthy, educated citizens. Today, at least 80 percent of humanity, or more than six billion in this world, are living on less than $10 a day, and billions living with little to no access to electricity.
