Will Tesla Die for Lack of Cobalt?
Like all neo-Luddite worries, the worry about Cobalt is misplaced. Humans are ingenious and will find a solution to this problem. That does not mean that the electric car is a winner, that jury is still out. It means the technical issues like Cobalt will not stand in the way if the idea is sound, and electric cars reduce pollution, reduce carbon, lower costs, and make sense for a large number of auto users.
The jury is out because there is little evidence that on a design/build to destroy calculation that the electric auto reduces pollution, carbon, lowers costs, or makes economic sense to anyone but the wealthy.
