12. Because lithium is more prevalent in basically large salt flats...

They think they can sell it as, it's huge dry desert with no plants or animals to compromise environmentally. Which is obviously flawed thinking at its core. And lithium is only a temporary solution as you stated. The worlds easily available lithium supplies could very well run out before Bidens 2050 carbon neutral plan. That would force the mining of lithium from harder to get to deposits and result in far more destructive environmental impacts down the line. Hopefully with foresight and learning from past mistakes we can keep developing new and more efficient ways of extracting energy from the natural world to meet demand. But that doesn't seem to be human nature
