Using 107,500,000 lbs of Lithium

The price of Lithium has increased by over 500% close to 600%, in the past 2 years.

I'm old enough to remember the "Russian Collusion" Hoax; the "Ukrainian Blackmail" Hoax, the "Insurrection" Hoax, the "Russian Hookers/Pee Tapes" Hoax, the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" Hoax, the "George Zimmerman stalked Trayvon" Hoax and many others.
