Unfortunately synfuels - although they are carbon neutral - do nothing to stop pollution in town.

I suspect hydrogen will boom as things like hydrogen fuel cell buses and trains become more popular.

The golden rule with batteries is to not use them if its at all possible. They are a pain and ALWAYS cause hassle.

Emissions for normal cars are negligible, its the other vehicles that need to be brought into line.

The more electric cars that are produced means the more lithium will need to be mined.
Bloomberg published a report detailing how the boom in lithium mining is irreversibly destroying the local environment of northern Chile’s Atacama desert. Mining for lithium means removing large amounts of water, which means depleting the water supply for locals. According to the report, the Tilopozo meadow in Chile used to be a shelter for shepherds traveling at night, yet has become barren due to lack of grass or water. That puts a severe strain on local farmers.

They are also mining for lithium in Cornwall, and I don't know what the impact of that will be on the environment.

Will we ever reach a point in time when the only resources we need for energy are the sun, wind and water?

I doubt if we shall be using lithium in a few years time, they are finding other options with higher energy density.
