Lithium is not a fossil fuel--it doesn't burn. It doesn't burn out. Lightest of metals, it gets recycled. If all the wanna-be producers come to fruition we'll have at worst a cartel of Alcoas.

On the demand side it's going to be long long time before china produces a "clean" electric car--better name "coal tar car." CA is now mandating 5% (~80,000 vehicles)--more cars than all hybrids sold here currently. That's with the (critical) car pool exclusion. You can mandate sellers but not buyers. .....But gotta start somewhere, I suppose.
