    The planet won't be destroyed, but humans may destroy most or all of the more highly developed life forms. I imagine that the bacteria and other weird creatures that live around hydrothermal vents in the deep ocean will survive, but life on land could become rather tricky if we get runaway climate change.

    The quest for Lithium ion, for the batteries to power electric cars wil be a factor in screwing up the ocean floors and the seabed life.

    I agree. It's just the earth's natural immune system trying to eliminate a threat - namely us. Gaia?

    Spot on John. Plus the estimated 35,000 Congolese children estimated to be working in the slave conditions mining the minerals for the batteries. https://edition.cnn.com/interactive/...y-energy-intl/ Is there an ethical electric car/lithium powered phone? You'd be hard pressed to get the smug western EV owners to admit there's a huge problem. Not just baby boomer payback then

    Let's dig some coal, then we could build some steel works.

    Possibly build a suitable railway system so we could start a manufacturing industry.

    Even go back to ship building.
