“Does the world need more electric vehicles? More Canada?” That’s the title of an interesting article in the NB Media Co-op today by Tracy Glynn, an assistant professor in the St. Thomas University Environment and Society program.

Glynn explains that the demand for electric vehicles is ramping up mining for the minerals required for vehicle batteries. Her message is that we need to be thinking about the social justice and wider implications of our energy choices.
