I hear ya Will. From an emissions stand point electric is cleaner but from an overall production stand point the benefit is marginal. It's more lucrative to mine coltan and cobalt than gold and diamonds. In Africa people are dying/being killed for our technology. "blood batteries" they call it. Not to mention the millions of tons of earth that have to be cleared and mined, ecosystems destroyed for some ounces of minerals all so we can enjoy our precious technology. Not that oil is better in anyway but electric is not as green as ya'll want to believe.
this is my opinion and your credence is meaningless.
