Sebastian Blanco reports on the biggest climate march ever spanning the globe and I continue to discuss with you that lithium technology to save us all is already here.
"Now you can see the confirmation of Chinese strategy to combat the air pollution and climate change. Electric cars are made the strategic industry and lithium supply is the matter of state level planning. Companies like Tesla Motors and Daimler will provide the lithium based technology and local manufacturing base will take it to the masses. Still under the radar screens of a lot of investors, China become the powerhouse for lithium industry starting with lithium materials and moving fast into lithium batteries and electric cars. Read more."
"Recent world-wide public awareness about the climate change and lithium technology advance demonstrated by Tesla Motors, present to us the unique opportunity to capitalise on this trends advancing the development of lithium supply chain. The largest world auto-market is based now in China. The Chinese Premier has announced the war on pollution and electric cars are at the forefront of this development. Our strategic partnership with Ganfeng Lithium opens the doors for our company to participate in these global development in electrification of our transportation. Read more."

Is it just us, or did something happen at that 2014 United Nations Climate Summit in New York City this week? The largest-ever climate change march took place in the city and the headlines were full of interesting items, from the famous oil family the Rockefellers divesting their charity from fossil fuels toGoogle telling ALEC goodbye over climate change lies. World leaders from wildly different countries gave speeches detailing what they plan to do on the issue of climate change. US president Obama said today that, "the climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it," and said that the US recognizes its role in creating the problem (see a video of his speech below).

Now, we know that climate change and automobiles are connected. That's not news. Still, the march and Summit let the Diesel Technology Forum take advantage of the moment to say that diesel vehicles can be a "key solution" in working to minimize climate change. We haven't heard anything specific from any of the major automakers tied in to the Summit, but that's par for the course. Still, there have been numerous announcements and reams of data issued this week. All important, of course, but sometimes doing all this reading about climate change just can't prepare you for seeing it in person.Now, we've seen lots of activists in the streets before and we've seen world leaders and powerful organizations (like, say, the Pentagon) issue dire warnings and promise action, but there's something about the discussion regarding climate change this week that feels different than it has before. So, we ask again, it is just us, or did something just happen? Read more on AutoBlogGreen"
