Picking through a mountain of huge rocks with his tiny bare hands, the exhausted little boy makes a pitiful sight.
His name is Dorsen and he is one of an army of children, some just four years old, working in the vast polluted mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where toxic red dust burns their eyes, and they run the risk of skin disease and a deadly lung condition. Here, for a wage of just 8p a day, the children are made to check the rocks for the tell-tale chocolate-brown streaks of cobalt the prized ingredient essential for the batteries that power electric cars.
And its feared that thousands more children could be about to be dragged into this hellish daily existence after the historic pledge made by Britain to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 and switch to electric vehicles.

Bloomberg thinks all you do is plant a seed and put a little water
Oh yeah. How much coal is involved. So there. Nanny nanny boo boo. It’s almost puke worthy to hear the envirowankers talk about ZERO emissions. Really? Follow the production trail dumbasses. Grrrrrrrrr!
Wait... I thought these cars were created with magic... They just show up on a car lot and we get to help the world by purchasing them...
Seems like a “Blood Diamonds” sort of movement would be in order.
Except for the fact that progressives really place no value on human life, especially that of children. When they say something that sounds like they do, they are just trying to manipulate you.

Let me be the first to say “Thank you!”.
Anyone who buys a EV thinking it’s green and thus saving the world is just a fool.
Among Christians, yes.
I saw a news story awhile ago about this. It is sickening and disgusting to even contemplate this horrific abuse of these kids and adults. Mans inhumanity to man.
These "Leftists"--stroking their disgusting, overinflated egos and congratulating themselves on their ill-conceived "virtues"--they make any honest, benevolent, decent, intelligent person want to vomit!
Democratic Republic of Congo
The Tesla Slave Plantation.
I loved it when someone posted a cartoon with an EV with a plug wire traced back to a fossil fuel power plant. Unfortunately, most of the nimrods in the world have as much knowledge of electrical power generation as they do about where the veggies in the supermarket come from (hint to them, they are not grown in the back of the store).
It’s Chinese Communist companies doing this.
Umbrella company is Congo Dongfang which means Congo Orient.
All leftism liberalism is a scam that does exactly opposite what they claim to be for.
Tell us again about the horror of fossil fuels.
Plant one million cobalt trees...
Fake news, previously posted and debunked.
Do you really believe a few kids are doing mining?
