Suggested Discussion Outline

Post by johnkarls »

.


The following outline is respectfully suggested –


*******************************
A. Comments About Specific Chapters of “Volt Rush” – 60 minutes

Our tradition is to devote the first portion of each monthly meeting to going through the focus book, chapter by chapter, to invite important comments that are specific to a particular chapter. After all, each participant (except, perhaps, “first timers”) have taken the time to read the focus book and her/his opportunity to opine on anything in the focus book should NOT be denied.


Introduction

Chapter 1 – The Battery Age

Chapter 2 – Dashed Hopes: The Troubled History of the EV

Chapter 3 – The Breakthrough: The Lithium-Ion Revolution

Chapter 4 – China’s Battery King

Chapter 5 – The Chinese Lithium Rush

Chapter 6 – Chile’s Buried Treasure

Chapter 7 – The Cobalt Problem

Chapter 8 – The Rise of a Cobalt Giant

Chapter 9 – Blood Cobalt

Chapter 10 – Dirty Nickel

Chapter 11 – The Green Copper Tycoon

Chapter 12 – The Final Frontier: Mining the Deep Sea

Chapter 13 – Reduce, Re-use, Recycle: A Closed Loop

Chapter 14 – The World’s Greenest Battery

Chapter 15 – Cornwall’s Mining Revival

Conclusion
