    Lovely theory, when then are these billion (trillion) $ companies not out of biz if supply and demand is the key? Some reading if you dare

    This stuff doesn't even account for current administration helping our poor beleaguered (ha ha ha) fossil fuel companies due to pandemic lower-driving situation.

    Tesla’s Shift To Cobalt-Free Batteries Is Its Most Important Move Yet
    A couple of months ago, it was revealed that Tesla was working with CATL on lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, and these could be the real gamechanger. LFP batteries don’t use cobalt ...
    LFP batteries also have much lower (less than half!) the energy density.

    Tesla will be using LFP for the batteries in its Chinese Model 3, after receiving government approval to do so. It is estimated that using LFP batteries will allow a 15-20% reduction in manufacturing cost.
    And how much of a reduction in range due to the decreased energy density?

    The good news for you, Jack, is that LFP batteries have a much lower tendency to go prompt-critical when damaged or abused.
