The Battle ground established, the shaky markets explained, the proxy terrorism, could all be pointing to an evolutionary game changing power source and control of it that the worlds powers will fight an unprecedented War for to gain,through destabilising and reorganising the world’s population, as oil the current controlling interest in the world, becomes Lithium.

Could this new energy source explain some of the confusing manoeuvring, financially, politically and militarily, in recent times?

Sooner than it takes to build a nuclear power station, lithium-air batteries could be helping wind and solar to make coal, oil and nuclear power obsolete, say Cambridge scientists. Five times lighter and five times cheaper than current lithium batteries, Li-air would open the way to our 100% renewable future.

For many years, new forms of drive have emerged only to be suppressed, as to expensive in favour of the really 50 years out of date combustion engine

Is the real battle of control limited to only these 8 countries with the proxy war being fought, as far away as possible, so, as to not damage valuable resources?

Not just Lithium, but Lithium battery tech will absolutely evolve as youve pointed out. Many elements in general will become useful for energy purposes in more ways than we can currently imagine. Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Cobalt, Thorium, etc etc

From 2010:

An internal Pentagon memo states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,”.

Why is the Pentagon bothering itself with the mineral wealth/deposits of other nations?

Wait I know. Its because the military serves as tax payer funded corporate enforcers.

Considering that most of the know lithium reserves are in the Andes, specially Bolivia, and that sodium batteries are potentially better, I would say nah

Lithium batteries are NOT a game changer, merely another form of energy STORAGE.

Energy must still be generated in the first place.

Solar is not viable for northern climates.

Wind is unpredictable which is why they are almost always supplemented with natural gas powered generators. This is not due to some dingbat conspiracy crap in some left wing rag. This is STANDARD power engineering design.

A very good renewable solution is hydroelectric; very consistent, very cost effective. However the intellectual midgets of the left have made dams politically incorrect, and even got some demolished.

LUNACY!

Possibly ....maybe sodium batteries are potentially better? but as it stands

Bolivia will have its work cut out to catch up with its neighbours. Chile’s lithium deposits are considered the best quality in the world, with high concentrations in a dry climate at lower altitude. Argentina already exports lithium to the US, the UK, China, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands and Russia.

A HIGH-VOLTAGE AND ULTRALONG-LIFE SODIUM FULL CELL FOR STATIONARY ENERGY STORAGE.
Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2015 Sep 18;54(40):11701-5. Epub 2015 Aug 18.

Recently, there has been great interest in developing advanced sodium-ion batteries for large-scale application. Most efforts have concentrated on the search for high-performance electrode materials only in sodium half-cells. Research on sodium full cells for practical application has encountered many problems, such as insufficient cycles with rapid capacity decay, low safety, and low operating voltage.

CAGE-TYPE HIGHLY GRAPHITIC POROUS CARBON-CO3O4 POLYHEDRON AS THE CATHODE OF LITHIUM-OXYGEN BATTERIES.

A novel cage-type highly graphitic porous carbon-Co3O4 (GPC-Co3O4) polyhedron was designed and successfully prepared for the first time by executing a two-step annealing of core-shell structured metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The low graphitic carbon cores were selectively removed during the secondary annealing in air atmospheres, leaving the interior voids due to their lower thermal stability compared with the graphitic carbon shells. Inspired by the unique properties of the cage-type GPC-Co3O4 polyhedron, GPC-Co3O4 was assembled as an oxygen electrode for a rechargeable Li-O2 battery without the additional conductive agent.

A new global power source is the point
oil is nearly over!

sodium batteries?
Lithium batteries?
some form of low cost energy will be implemented!!!!
the example is not the argument the power source is and it seems to have been chosen, whatever, it may be, it will be... a Game-changer

LUNACY!
it will be, as it really will cost us....................

So if you know li comes from south America, what's up with that about middle east wars in the op

What is confusing about all that in regards to south America, or Mexico in any case, where the li for tesla batteries plant is going to be mined

Oil is not over, there is enough for a very long time.

Batteries are exactly that- BATTERIES.

Batteries DO NOT GENERATE POWER, any more than a bucket generates water, just stores it.

Gross lack of comprehension and knowledge on the part of the greenies ( from the top of their arts/poli-sci "degrees")

The LUNACY I point out is that there exists a viable green power source, but it is deliberately being ignored, one that does not require subsidies to be cost effective: good old hydroeletric.

No all the bad and good decisions are taken because of human nature. Human nature is what drives a good or bad decision. Resource is a goal but the driver is emotion, emotion is part of human nature.

Human greed, cheating, vengeance, lust, wrath, laziness, gluttony, hate, fear is the cause of the worlds problems.

We can have all the tech to fulfill our needs in the world, but if we dont find a way to rid ourselves of these conditions which is the root of all the problems we are just gonna repeat the same mistAkes just with less pollution.

Technology is not what is needed to solve the worlds problems. People will still starve even if we have cleaner tech because tech is not gonna share, we have to. Wars will still be faught for some new resource, again sharing would make all of this go away. The problem is inside each and everyone of us. Some most than other.

Dont you guys see this?

No, lithium isn't the future. There is a new form of energy National Security is working on introducing to the world in the form of a perpetual wheel of motion that is commerciable. Perpetual Motion Power Plants will replace all forms of energy generation and they can be made small enough to fit inside cars and motorcycles and aircraft. The second law of physics is incorrect as you can move objects from one place to another... thus generating electricity... without the use of any force other than gravity which creates a perpetual wheel of motion, a continually 'falling' side of the wheel thus infinite continuation. I will give you a hint, what happens when you wrap a string aroung a wheel? It reels what is at the end of the string in without the use of any energy, and thus with that mechanism alone you have infinite energy generation.

Well, the least they can do is strike a network deal so we can all sit and watch the carnage. Jeez. We paid for it.

Lithium just isn't important for batteries and various related chemistry. If fusion tech ever takes off, lithium can be used as a source of heavy isotope hydrogen. Yes you don't really get much energy out of lithium by exposing it to conditions that cause it to fission, but the hydrogen from that process is about ideal for fusion. So lithium could be considered as a fuel, if you consider it a more compact and energy dense form of hydrogen.

H-bombs other than the very first prototypes didn't use big tanks of hydrogen, and it'd be unweildy anyways. Read about Teller-Ulam, and it should make a bit more sense.
