A couple of days after I was due to go on a business trip to Southern Sweden.
The Company Medical department made me take a load off Iodine before and after the trip, to make sure my thyroid was nicely loaded with non radioactive Iodine.

TV and radio hardly used while we were there, we didn't know about it for a few days - the aqvavit from a neighbouring farm might have had something to do with that!
As for last week? I spent a couple of days at MMC - but only really remember a shared tour on Friday as we had a visit from AMOC. A very nice (unrestored) DB5 was among all the modern AMs parked up on the field - that is the memory jogger smile

Thanks for the heads-up on this Bonesie. We downloaded it last night and for the first time in my life I binge watched 3 episodes back to back. Will watch the rest tonight.

Absolutely thought provoking about what happened, what could have happened, and the Russian political machine. There were some brave people involved trying to sort out the issue...

Finished watching the series last week, absolutely brilliant and really poignant at points, a tragic story and one wonders just what the true environmental impact was across the globe..

Fortunately the evidence from Chernobyl seems to be that it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been, but it is nevertheless concerning since it's largely invisible.

The environmental damage caused by the fossil fuel industry is by contrast much easier to see and measure: Kuwait, Deepwater Horizon, Ixtoc, Atlantic Empress, Amoco Cadiz, MT Haven, Odyssey, Exxon Valdez, the list goes on and on.

The fossil fuel industry has caused far more deaths and environmental damage than nuclear power many times over.

What will the production of lithium ion batteries cause in the way of pollution?

Compared with the extraction of most minerals and alloys, Lithium extraction has a low environmental impact.
This is a good overview.
https://www.solarplants.org.uk/lithium-mining-environmental-impact/

There is more than enough, about 39 billion tonnes....

Recycling of lithium ion cells is another matter, but it need not be an environmental threat.

Overall, my view is that Li batteries are less of a threat to the planet than most, if not all, other sources of mobile power. Of course, how power is generated is another matter....
