In this episode of the Critical Materials Corner, Tracy Weslosky is joined by Critical Materials’ industry expert and InvestorIntel Editor-in-Chief, Jack Lifton, and Critical Materials Corner Co-Host & InvestorIntel Columnist, Byron King, to discuss how the world is heading towards an energy crisis as covered in Byron’s recent column published on InvestorIntel titled – Energy Rundown: 2022, A New Year of Living Dangerously.

In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), the panelists discussed how energy security ties in with economic development, and why the world is presently not in a position to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels to zero. They went on to discuss the global push towards green energy and electric vehicles, which has caused a significant increase in prices for critical materials such as lithium, nickel, and the rare earths. Explaining why there is “nothing green about green energy”, the panel also discussed solutions to the impending energy crisis.

    Are you saying the impact of burning coal and gas in our cars is equivalent to obtaining lithium from brine or rare earth from monazite?

    Byron. Fyi, the “presumed” insult from the Australian government to the Chinese, occurred after a discovery that China had imported millions of masks from Australia just PRIOR to announcing the outbreak of Covid. Our government then advised the chinese that they were launching an investigation into this – hence the insult. The chinese then (in typical fashion),bit off their nose to spite their face, and refused our coal. I believe they are enjoying a nice cold winter. We sold that coal to other countries. Nobody/No country with half a brain, on this planet should EVER place themselves in a position of reliance on China for ANYTHING.

    We need all forms of energy not just bogus `renewables’. The entire anti-carbon nonsense is not based on science, it’s based on greed for tax-payer subsidies. That is nothing more than a scam to depower the West. China is a busted flush. They want the world’s resources, and they can’t have them.
