Lithium battery megafactories in pipeline

Over at benchmarkminerals.com website,they're showing 68-Lithium battery mega-factories in the pipeline,with a capacity of 1.45-TW-h by 2028.
EV sales are beginning to hockey-stick,we're over 5-millon sales,globally, as of December,2018,and US sales rose 81%.
Top-5 producers as of January,2019, were: TESLA/Panasonic,LG Chem,CATL,CATL,and LG Chem.
I ran some numbers based upon a back-to-back comparison,by CAR and DRIVER,between a Tesla S and BMW 5-series.Due to the thermal inefficiency of internal combustion,it's possible to operate more than 5X as many electric cars as ICE,with no more net energy.The BMW had the equivalent of a 318-kWh pack and got no more range than the Tesla,with 78.3-kWhs.And even though the Tesla cost 14.4% more on the front end,it ultimately cost 25.4% less to 'fuel',over a 30-year transition to a zero-carbon economy.
Apologize if this is redundant info.

Once they start becoming standard in starting battery applications is when to take notice.

The useful idiot nimbys here in NM are trying to stop a new cobalt mine from opening.
Once people realize how much buying gas all the time sucks we are going to need a lot more batteries.

2019 US sales are on target to fall short of 2018 sales. It might be a hockey stick, but sadly in the wrong direction.

It will happen, but not just yet.

Pure BEV sales dropped rebounded and dropped again in Wisconsin after the EV TAX + title increases.

Outside CARB, I think the wait will be very long for any significant change

Maybe we are entering the “Violent Opposition Phase”?

But I just saw somebody claim electric cars pollute just as much because everybody gets their electricity [only] by burning fuel. Could they be 'blowing smoke'?

You're just repeating the two decade old, pro-fossil fuel propaganda, as if you didn't know it, already. Pretending ignorance, shows with clarity, your connection to dead old propaganda.

NOpe! It is a racist, sexist, xenophobic, agoraphobic, coulrophobic, something about T-rUmP, lactose intolerant, climate denier.
