28. We have to be careful with the rush to electrify all the automobiles.

Rushing gives WAY too much power to China. They control the vast majority of the minerals needed to make the lithium batteries these cars require. They have been throwing money at Africa to get even MORE control.
We need to make a concentrated effort to develop batteries that do not require such a massive dependence on a country that already has us by the short hairs in many other areas. Can that be done? I'm not an engineer; i have no idea.
We're already getting 95% of our antibiotics from China; something i never knew before the pandemic. Thats dangereous as well. Imagine if they just cut THAT supply off?
