The experts have also calculated that based on the latest battery technology (80 per cent nickel, 10 per cent cobalt, 10 per cent manganese), UK demand for EV batteries will require almost the total amount of neodymium produced globally each year, three quarter’s of the world’s lithium, and “at least half” of the world’s copper.
The letter, authored by a team of eight scientists headed by the Natural History Museum’s head of earth sciences, professor Richard Herrington, explains that to replace the UK’s cars with EVs will require 207,900 tonnes of cobalt, 264,600 tonnes of lithium carbonate and “at least” 7,200 tonnes of neodymium and dysprosium, as well as 2,362,500 tonnes of copper.
And that's just for the UK demand. 100% of world output of Neodymium, 75% of the world's output of Lithium and half of the world's copper output. How is that just rhetorical?

We're doomed (as I have said before).

I suppose that if they displace a whole load of minerals from Moon to Earth without sending the corresponding mass back to the moon, then
at least the Moon's drift away from orbit around Earth can be halted!
