And one battery will only cost $2.8 million.Welcome to the fresh....And our gas powered used autos will all end up in Africa, as they become more obsolete. The population of Africa is expected to grow from 1.3 Billion to over 4 Billion by the end of the century.This is very good news.
Infrastructure needs to be built to expand charging stations around the nation and I hope that happens.
Other auto makers are following GM's example and converting to 100% electric cars.
This is a good step in the right direction to combat climate change and the pollution that is killing our planet.
.GM announced its "aspirations" Thursday as part of a larger plan for the Detroit automaker to be carbon neutral by 2040 in its global products and operations.www.cnbc.com
And mining to manufacture batteries will lead to more quasi colonization in African countries. These countries have massive amounts of lithium, graphite, colbalt etc. So either US manufactures will have to set up massive supply chains over there or let China continue to do it and then they will export batteries to the USA LOL.
The Radioactive Diamond Battery That Will Run For 28,000 Years
It's powered by nuclear waste, but still safe for humans.
We know—that sounds wild. The potential game-changer comes from the U.S. startup NDB, which stands for Nano Diamond Battery, a “high-power diamond-based alpha, beta, and neutron voltaic battery” its research scientist founders say can give devices “life-long and green energy.”
Could NDB’s bold claim actually become a reality?
To build its nano diamond battery, NDB combines radioactive isotopes from nuclear waste with layers of paneled nano diamonds. Diamonds are a rare thing to begin with, but their extremely good heat conductance makes them even more unusual in the realm of construction of devices. Micro-sized single crystal diamonds move heat away from the radioactive isotope materials so quickly that the transaction generates electricity.
