>> about president biden says he wants half the cars made in this country to be fully or partly electric by the ends of the decade. that's millions of cars trucks and suvs all powered by lit yumt litd yumion combat ris. >> 16 years ago, this was the sight of a giant volcanic reaction. in the mountains of northern nevada... the fuel of the future lies in the shadow of the past. this area is called thacker pass.ùand volcanologist tom benson has been searching the world for places just like it. he says an eruption here millions of years ago... ....left behind the keys to
7:24 am
unlock the electric vehicle revolution. it's called lithium.ùthe lightest solid element on that chart most of us only periodically remember from high school chemistry. rechargeable lithium ion batteries are what power our cell phones, computers, even toothbrushes. and are now the fuel for all those electric vehicles starting to roll off the assembly line. can what's the connection between volcanos and lilt yum? >> pretty much all lithium comes from volcanos. >> in the coming years when people are driving their electric cars down the road there's a good chance the lithium in that battery will come from here? >> yes, that's the hope. >> benson works for lithium americas.ùa mining company that owns the rights to thacker pass...the largest known lithium deposit in the united states. the company expects to potentially extract 80-thousand tons of lithium a year... that's enough to power about a million vehicles. so none of this looks particularly high-tech.
7:25 am
>> no, it's not. >> >> jonathan evans is president of the company. >> it's really the blood in the battery, without it the bad ris won't work. with automakers pledging to soon make most of their vehicles electric.ù lithium demand is expected to increase as much as ten fold in the next decade. right now most of it is mined in chile and australia and almost all of it is processed in china the united states has just one lithium producing mine.ùin southern nevada...providing less than 2% of world supply. >> is it an option for the u.s. not to be in this field and to let other countries supply this? >> i think answer is no. we have a lot of competitors in the world that if we don't do something about it, others are going to be happy to. >> and one of those countries is china. >> yes. >> how far behind are we? >> years, decades. >> if future of the auto industry is electric. there's no turning back.
7:26 am
jumpstarting the switch to e-vs is key to president biden's plan to cut u-s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 to slow climate change. >> this sucker's quick! >> the department of energy has released a national blueprint for lithium batteries. it says relying on other countries creates a "strategic vulnerability" for the us economy. >> we are right at the beginning of this journey, and therefore what's ahead of us is so huge. allan swan is president of panasonic energy north america... he runs the largest lithium ion battery factory in the world...just outside reno nevada. it produces *2 billion batteries * each year. all of them are for just one electric car maker...tesla. do you guys ever shut down? does this ever take a break,. >> no. never stop, 24/7, 365 days a year, we don't stop.
7:27 am
>> the batteries are made on the panasonic side of this massive facility known as the tesla gigafactory... ...and then these robots, humming along to the theme from the super mario brothers video game... them to the tesla side where they are put inside the cars. >> what do we as a current do or what do companies do to meet this new demand? >> we don't have a supply chain here in the united states. we have to work hard at that. if we get that right we're going to rock in america write will be really fourful. >> are we going to get more battery factories in this all over the country? >> yes, fundamentally yeah, i mean it's not even touching the bottom of the barrel at this point. so it's not long ago. >> those factories will need a lot of lithium.
7:28 am
which is why jb straubel.ùthe co of redwood materials.ùand a former tesla executive.ùsays all those lithium batteries need to be recycled. >> it could become a big challenge. >> trucks arrive at his carson city warehouse every day.ùloaded with boxes of old batteries from electric cars to power tools. his company is partnering with ford to help turn old batteries into new ones. ford just announced plans to build two massive battery manufacturing plants in the us. >> i think recycling the batteries ask a must. the material is sort of coming at us and we don't really have a choice of, you know, should we or should we not recycle it. >> l l lithium is so valuable is called white gold. there's believed to be billions of dollars worth of it here at the thacker pass alone. and while it may be essential to a greener future, getting it out of the ground comes at its own
7:29 am
environmental cost. >> the claim that this would be green mine is extreme dangerous. max wilbert is part of a group of protestors who have been camping out on the thacker pass mine site since january. he says lithium is not the silver bullet many believe it to be... because of the impact of the mining on the land and the large amounts of waste water created by lithium extraction. if we're trying to move away from fossil fuels is the environmental impact at a site like this the lesser of two evils? >> you know that's a really good question. but i 30 the problem is, that's the wrong framing. global warming is a huge problem. but in this attempt to save the planet from climate change people are actually believing that we can save the planet by destroying it. >> lithium americas admits there will be environmental impacts but claims new mining technology will lead to less damage. the company plans to begin its operation next year. potentially creating a lithium boom town in nearby winemucca,

nevada. >> if you believe about climate change if you are worried about competitiveness if we are worried about jobs being lost then assets like this, development like this in the u.s. is necessary.

7:38 am
costas >> it's hard to this be of a televised sport costas hasn't broadcasted. >> just the little bow tie off and chicken we knows in states >> winning 29 emmy awards and anchoring dozen olympic games, in a career spans nearly half a century. >> my dad was a gambler. >> a career felt on his father's need to know the scores. >> he would flip me the keys to the car, i'm 11, 12, i'd go out in the driveway and start fiddling with the dial, like a safe cracker to try to pick up st. louis or detroit and i would report the scores back to him but at the same time, i was absorbing the different styles and cadences of the announcers and it further cemented the idea in my mind, what great job this is, to be one of those voices in the night to be at the ballgame, to tell the story? my dad died when i was 18, he was only 42 i was on my way to

7:40 am
once he got to the top. from 1988 to 1994, he hosted later where he interviewed a wide range of people nothing to do with the world of sports. >> you talking to mccartney about lennon, gerald ford about the warren commission, four nights with mel brooks. his get pumped, and ha ha >> did you know it was going to be as satisfying as it was >> the more i did it, the more i realized it >> flirted with a life outside sports be turning down the "today" show and 60 minutes. >> did you get off at 60? >> yes. i did get off at 60. my kids at that point were seven and four. you can say to a kid, want to go to the bulls game introduce them to michael jordan, go to the world series, go to the olympics, you can't say to the kid i'm interviewing the secretary of state want to come

along. >> but in 2018, when his time at nbc came to an end after almost 40 years amid tension other criticism of the nfl's handling of head injury >> might have caused discomfort. >> costas knew he wasn't close to being done >> is your tank as full as it's ever been >> at this point, i'm a show pony not a plow horse, i'm not looking for inventory, i'm looking for things that move the needle for me. >> consider this. >> and now hbo is providing a well lit platform, and a chance to blend those two parts of his broadcasting brain. >> we'll examine the culture through the lens of sports. what do sport tell us about us? >> i think it tells us a variety of things. some of them encouraging and some not. some of the same mean spiritedness that per have anied the culture. it's part of sports too. >> through a mix of panel
7:42 am
discussions, for the everybody is actually worth listening to. willingness to speak and does not mean that you are the person necessarily who should speak. jordan or labron? >> jordan. labron is amazing. >> long form interviews and no holds bard commentary >> seldoms mallible definition of principle stockily revealed. >> costas is examining junctions of sports and culture that tell he is about us. like legalized gambling ever growing footprint. >> all of these operations they all have variations on this, the first thousand dollars is free, that's just a gambling version of a pusher in an ally saying to a kid, he was, the first one is free. >> hero some athletes sent vaccinations through the looking glass. >> that not doing what all the evidence indicates you should do for yourself, for your family, country and community, not doing
7:43 am
that is actually a statement of principle. which is a crock of crap, but, yeah. >> at the each of 69, having been there, done that, and far exceeding howard cosell's predictions, bob costas doesn't have anything else to prove to anyone. >> relatively speaking i might be venturing where other sports casters don't go but i don't think in makes me edward morrow, i'm looking to do a good television show that contains well crafted material about relevant topics. not going to change the course of civil sensation but i open it's a decent contribution to the discussion and more light than heat. not us. ur skin? because dupixent targets a root cause of eczema, it helps heal your skin from within, keeping you one step ahead of it. and for kids ages 6 and up, that means clearer skin, and noticeably less itch.
