9. It will produce 1200 tons per year for 12.5 years, according to the link.

Congo, according to the USGS, produces 63.000 tons per year.

I'll bet that Musk claims all his cobalt comes from Idaho and Canada. So will everybody else.

People will keep cheering for Musk and his car for millionaires and billionaires, and just to keep us happy, he'll launch another cobalt laced Tesla into deep space.

No one will be buying Congo cobalt, and so we'll all be totally mystified that those kids keep digging it, but they will keep digging it, even though no one will admit to buying what they dig.

Stable cobalt is monoisotopic, and thus it is extremely challenging to identify its source.

Don't worry, be happy. It's all for our "renewable" dream.

We renew our rhetoric daily about our grand renewable future, even if the amount of wind and solar electricity produced remains what it's been for half a century, trivial.
