The electric vehicle revolution is one of the most important industrial transformations of our time. And it depends almost entirely on minerals/metals from outside the United States. NYT today opens a series of stories examining this.

Right, so by 2050, EVs in OECD (more developed economies) are 34% of fleet & 28% in non-OECD. That's still a considerable shift. But transpo in US consuming about same amt of gas in 2050 as today & the world--a lot more. Progress?

Suggests that EIA thinks the pandemic did more to cut CO2 emissions from transportation in the US than the shift to EVs will, even by 2050. This is a question. Have not dug into this.

Was looking at these US Energy Information Agency estimates for emissions from and wondering, have they not accounted for EVs? Or will the EV revolution really mean no real reduction in transpo emissions in US, given electricity demand/economic growth?

John Harris ruminates on 15 years since birth of Politico and how the media landscape has changed--and should change now again in the years ahead. "Politico Marked the End of the Era of Institutional Media. Now We Need to Bring It Back." via @politico
