Volcano Lakes May Contain Vital Lithium Deposits, Say Stanford Researchers

Lithium is a key component of lithium-ion batteries and lithium-ion batteries are a key component of the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy and electric cars. But until now, it has been in relatively short supply, sparking fierce competition among mining companies. It is one of the most abundant elements in the world, but commercial mining has been limited due to limited demand. A new Stanford study offers some insight into where more lithium can be gathered. It is titled, “Lithium enrichment in intracontinental rhyolite magmas leads to Li deposits in caldera basins.”

Wow. Sounds like a real page-turner, doesn’t it

Prepping For World Electric Car Distance Record Attempt

This weekend, members of the Tesla Shuttle crew are going to attempt to break the world record for miles/kilometers driven on a single charge in an electric car. The attempt is being led by Tomasz Gać, founder/CEO of Quriers and co-founder of Tesla Shuttle. But I’m also one of those people and will be doing a good chunk of the driving — weather permitting. A third co-founder, Jacek Fior, and I did a test drive for several hours recently. Below the video (and in the video chat) are some of my notes from that test drive
