The world’s electric car industry is powered by poverty, abuse and environmental disaster

In an effort to save the environment in wealthy countries, many of the world’s poorest countries and communities are being exploited and their lands are being destroyed.

“Human rights groups have documented abuse and pollution in the manufacturing of green-powered electric cars. The industry relies on the extraction of bauxite used to make aluminum to build electric cars. Guinea is one of the world’s largest producers of bauxite, the aluminium ore,” Al Jazeera reports.

In the United States, the underbelly of the electric car industry is being ignored by the righteousness of the political left who turn a blind eye to the humanitarian crisis the industry is creating globally.
