All cobalt and phosphate reactions with regards to lithium processing are heave pollutants, while the alkaline nature of lithium itself doesn't help at all with trying to make the refinement "air and environment friendly".
Let's not even talk about the separate metallurgy processing for the mandatory isolation and encasing which also pollute the air with horrid shit in smelting as well as extraction facilities.

This building is literally the same as making a giant pyramid of soda cans as a stock boy when you have fuck all to do.

If one of your employees spent all day "organising" the office to work better and accomplished essentially nothing it would be like this building. It means they don't have enough actual work to do. This building is an expression of that attitude in mass scale. Any organisation that has the time and money to do this, doesn't have enough shit to do, enough tasks to accomplish. They aren't getting any real work done. By the time this thing is done, it will already be outdated, crowded. What a tremendous waste of resources talent money and time.

Its an office. Its a room where you fucking do shit. Together a bunch of them make an office building.

This is not a difficult concept. 90% of a building is fucking empty space. For a company that prides itself on innovation, they have made an incredibly rigid, inflexible and unadaptable space.

They are literally obsessed with the idea of this building. So obsessed they don't give a literal shit how the actual real thing will work for them or their wage slaves.

The analogue of a battery would be fuel tank (easily recyclable), not gasoline.
Can you recycle electricity, you retard?
Almost all countries generate most of their electricity using fossil fuels. The difference between electric and regular cars is that electric cars store energy that was generated somewhere else, and standard cars generate energy themselves by burning fuel. If you factor in power transmission/storage losses and the fact that car batteries are made using all kinds of nasty stuffs, you'd wonder what kind of agenda kikes have in lobbying a forced meme that electric car is.
