Lithium In A California Lake Could Help U.S. Gain Energy Autonomy

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on NBC News.

The ingredient crucial to electric car batteries is found in the brine of the Salton Sea, a once-busy recreation spot that fell into decay because of toxic runoff.

This Google Map shows the Salton Sea in the middle of the Californian desert.

It looks like a rather bleak hot place to me.

But if we can extract lithium out of little Cornwall, surely the Yanks can extract it from a dying lake.
