Submission + - An Updated Look at Lithium Production (theoildrum.com)

Gooseygoose writes: Just over a year ago, and spurred by an article in Time, I wrote a post on the possible global supply of lithium, which is used in renewable batteries, and a major choice for use in the batteries of electric vehicles, such as the Chevy Volt. Since the story has acquired more recent interest this week, and with new information, it is worth re-visiting the topic.

I began the original post by noting that our first introduction to these batteries was in our role as an Explosives Lab when we found out — in a series of experiments a long time ago — that they can blow up if handled wrongly. And it turns out that such a risk is still around, though not that common.

sopssa writes: 2K Games announced today that they will be releasing Civilization V in the fall. For the first time in the series the square tiles will be changed to hexes, which 2K Games says provides "deeper strategy" and "more realistic gameplay". Civilization V will also include new graphics engine, new combat system including ranged bombardment, multiplayer and good support for the modding community. 'Each new version of Civilization presents exciting challenges for our team. Thankfully, ideas on how to bring new and fun experiences to Civ players never seem to stop flowing. From fully animated leaders and realistic landscapes, new combat tactics, expanded diplomacy and shared mods, we're excited for players to see the new vision our team at Firaxis has brought to the series.', Sid Meier said. In addition to Civilization V, the Facebook-based Civilization Network will also be released during 2010.
