This is where we all are going now, Tesla is already driving itself! Colbert is brilliant, as usual, and with all laughs you can get the message: three billionaires are working to make this rEVolution happen for real. Lithium Technology is making it possible. When you put brilliant minds, technology and capital together in Silicon Valley wonderful things are happening.
Tesla Motors: Our Mission - To Make All Cars Electric. Tesla Model 3: Third Time's A Charge.
Elon Musk is charging into the mass market for electric cars with its Tesla Model 3. Are you still wondering why all cars will be electric? Tesla Motors CTO JB Straubel has made his best video explaining it all in depth: Tesla's History, Lithium Technology and Tesla Energy to bring the Sun, Wind and other renewables to power our rEVolution. Tesla was created not just to produce the very expensive luxury best cars in the world which happen to be electric. It has the mission to make it possible for all cars to be electric. Today I would like to introduce Tesla Model 3 which will bring us the mass market in electric cars properly. Enjoy!
And if you would like to know more where the lithium will come from to power all this rEVolution and disruption of the few Trillion dollar industries, be my guest on my blog and the links below. Lithium technology has made it possible to store electricity - the most efficient form of energy known to us. Now lithium batteries will become cheaper and it changes everything.
Petrol and Diesel are fuels and they are consumed every time in Internal Combustion Engines (NYSE:ICE) with very low efficiency and very dangerous carcinogenic air pollution as a result. In contrast, Lithium battery is the technology providing ability to store energy very efficiently, which is produced somewhere else on the industrial scale with very high efficiency and from renewable sources as the ultimate goal. On the map above you can see the future - this is how much space we need to power all the World by Solar Power with available technology today! It brings us the ability to create the Real Energy Security with distributed Solar and Wind energy systems. Tesla Energy makes it possible now. Some people just prefer you not to think about it.
With Oil we have always dirty politicians and Fracking lobbyists from big old corporations drafting policies for us and our kids to bring democracy to the countries which happen to have a lot of Oil. Fossils are not only Fuels. It is time for a real change now. With Lithium Technology we have the Silicon Valley economics at work. If you put brilliant minds, technology, science and capital together wonderful things are happening. We all enjoy these products today.
Now it is time for Energy Sector. All prices for Wind, Solar and Lithium batteries are going down every year in contrast to the very volatile Oil prices and all other costs accounted in relation to it including never ending wars just to control the Energy Supply. Now we have the choice, nobody can stop it any more. "They" will try everything to delay it, but its now in the Other Realm. The Force of science, natural thermodynamics laws and economics make it unstoppable. It is for you to choose it for your kids.

Lithium Race: Tesla's JB Straubel - Most People At Tesla Now Working On Model 3.
"I would like to share today another great presentation from Tesla CTO JB Straubel presented by InsideEVs. In the very beginning of his talk you can see the great video from Tesla Motors about the company and even robots building electric cars in action! The future is here and it is electric. Cheaper lithium batteries change everything for Electric Cars and Solar power. Lithium is the magic metal at the very heart of this rEVolution. Watch the video"
International Lithium's Search for Green Metals.
"It is time to talk about the people behind the scenes of rEVolution, who are working very hard to make the Green healthy future for your kids possible with the development of Clean Power and Lithium Technology at its foundation. Our CEO Gary Schellenberg has assembled unique and very deep technical team at ILC. I would like to start today with John Harrop - VP of Exploration of International Lithium Corp. He has picked all our projects on the three continents at the very dawn of the Lithium Race in 2008, now two of them have become J/Vs and financed by the giant from China Ganfeng Lithium, which is Strategic Partner of International Lithium and is holding 17.5% stake in ILC.
Apart from ILC John Harrop is VP of Exploration of our Precious and Energy Metals Royalty Holding Company TNR Gold and he has developed Shotgun Gold project in Alaska into almost 1 MOZ of Gold inferred resource project, waiting now for its turn to grow with the new strategic partner.
Now John is running our both exploration programs with Ganfeng Lithium in Ireland and Argentina with our COO Anthony Kovacs and preparing our Mavis Lake Lithium and Tantalum project for the new strategic partnership to take ILC to the next level. You can find his technical articles on the web and today I will present his latest thoughts about Green Metals. Read more."

Tesla CTO: The Biggest Challenge We Facing Today - Energy Coming From Fossil Fuels.
"JB Straubel gives this brilliant presentation and it is resonating even more today with the latest DieselGate and VolkswagenGate headlines. AutoGate is approaching very fast and FrackingGate will be next. Corporate greed fuels all those scandals and it will be unstoppable if not for the people like JB and Elon Musk. There was the challenge: how to survive without the fossil fuels? This is how Tesla Motors was started in 2003 and the rest is the history now … JB tells it all today. Now we have Lithium Technology available to us to hit the last nail for the Fossil Fuels. Will we have now enough rage to do it? Maybe you can do something as well? Watch the video."
International Lithium And Ganfeng In "Top Lithium Producers."
Ganfeng Lithium has enjoyed the exponential growth in the last years and has grown to the ranks of Top Lithium Producers. It supplies BYD, LG Chem and Panasonic, which supplies cells for Tesla Motors. It became the strategic partner of International Lithium and finances our two lithium J/Vs now in Argentina and Ireland. During the last Shareholder Meeting in China on September 21st Ganfeng has presented latest information on its incredible growth, market share and that security of Lithium Supply is its major concern. You can find more details on Ganfeng Lithium website.
Ganfeng Increases Stake In Avalonia Lithium Project, Ireland And Finalizes Exploration Loan Agreement With International Lithium For Mariana Lithium Project, Argentina.
"Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, "The restructuring of our loan facilities with strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium provides ILC with financial relief and access to capital through the long term Exploration loan. In Argentina, all political candidates running in the upcoming elections are echoing the importance of mining and foreign investment to that country, something I view as very positive for our Mariana project. In Europe there is a growing concern that emissions standards are not being met with the clean diesel scandal paving the way for electric cars powered by lithium batteries. This gives our Avalonia project in Ireland strategic importance. Together with Ganfeng Lithium we continue to work towards supplying lithium as a raw material for clean power technologies in Europe and around the world."
I will add to my quote above the recent developments with Ganfeng Lithium in China:
"Ganfeng Lithium has enjoyed the exponential growth in the last years and has grown to the ranks of Top Lithium Producers. It supplies BYD, LG Chem and Panasonic, which supplies cells for Tesla Motors. It became the strategic partner of International Lithium and finances our two lithium J/Vs now in Argentina and Ireland.

After very lengthy negotiations our Team at ILC has made another major transaction with Ganfeng Lithium - 1.2 Billion dollars market cap giant from China. Now we do not have hanging over our heads short term debt. We have established the long term credit facility with Ganfeng to finance our part of exploration costs on Mariana Lithium project with the maturity in 2024! Access to the capital in our sector will separate winners from the rest of the lithium racers. Now the project is ready for the major advance stage. We are finalising the corporate structure and budgets for these developments.
With all Volkswagen and DieselGate news shattering Europe, it comes as no surprise that electrification of our transportation is the only commercially viable way forward - as you already know, in my personal opinion. LG Chem was very quick to announce the Lithium Battery plant to be build in Europe. I am calling on Tesla to bring its next Gigafactory to Ireland with its great corporate tax incentives, highly educated competitive work force and very competent government which is ready to propel its economy into the post carbon world. It will not hurt as well if Apple will decide at some point to build in Ireland some production facilities for its own Electric iCar. Rumours are running wild with this one, so we will see what the future brings to us here.
It is not a secret for my followers, that Ganfeng Lithium is knocking very hard on the Europe's doors and supplies Lithium to a lot of customers already in EU. Our J/V with Ganfeng in Ireland: Avalonia Lithium project - has received the major approval from Ganfeng shareholders and we are working on the budgets for the next exploration season now.
