That's because, as far as I know, the "Organization of Lithium-Exporting Countries" does not exist.
But if the hopes and dreams of electric car advocates are to come true, we're going to need several million boatloads of lithium to make all the lithium-ion batteries those battery engineers keep telling us will power our cars of the future.
And let's never forget, there are three kinds of liars in the world: liars, damned liars, and battery engineers.
It would appear that, as with petroleum, most lithium is located in countries not exactly sympatico with our socio-economic way of life.
Over half of the world's known supply is located in the planet's largest salt flat, in a remote desert in Bolivia. That land-locked South American country's president, Eva Morales, has long been a critic of "western" (generally) and American (specifically) economic policies, and has already nationalized various energy resources. Among other things, back in 2006 he sent soldiers to occupy facilities owned by British Petroleum.
I bet he has Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez's number on his speed dial.
The manager of Bolivia's lithium extraction and refining operation was recently quoted as saying, "We must raise the revolutionary consciousness of our people, starting on the floor of this very factory."
I'm not liking the sound of that.
