Clean energy may be tainted with the bad karma of child labor
Clean energy could have a moral albatross that will attract Donald Trump’s attacks – child labor.
Tonight, CNN aired a short report on AC360 on how electric car makers have had to step up audits overseas, especially the Congo, to try to keep child labor out of the chain for making batteries for electric cars.
We’re sort of back to “Blood Diamonds”.
This invocation of the Periodic Table could give us more ideas as to where we could have problems with rare elements.
Remember, Neptune has ice storms of diamonds, and there are whole planets made of diamond-grade carbon.
