If the New York Times is the bible of American liberalism, then the Washington Post must be a close runner-up. The latter has a lengthy piece that looks to be written for its weekend magazine.

Because it’s lighter than steel. Which extends battery range.

Oh, and the Chinese run the mines in Guinea. The coal-burning Chinese. But they can sell aluminum to America’s stupid liberals.
