Documentary on Brand New Energy Source
« on: 18/05/2009 00:40:35 »
Hi everyone,

I am serving as a co-producer on an independent short documentary tentatively titled Trono de Oro that will shed light on many energy/environmental issues.

The film will primarily focus on the indigenous salt farmers of Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia - the largest salt flat in the world.  Car companies around the globe are vying for the opportunity to tap the resource beneath the salt - about 50% of the worlds known Lithium reserves lie there.  This is the key resource for Lithium-ion batteries, which will power the new breed of electric cars.  President Evo Morales and the Bolivian government have already started to build mining facilities on the outskirts of the salt flat.  Our goal with this film is to contextualize this political situation, and document a changing indigenous community, as the lithium is tapped.

We are currently seeking funds to produce the project and are wondering if anyone has any ideas for people/organizations that would be interested in making a financial contribution.

For further information on the project you view our prospectus online at:

This link looks too much like an advert so I have deleted it. Anyone interested can always contact the poster. Mod

Thank you very much for your time.

Lithium salts are not an energy source.
They may help with improving the efficiency of some forms of energy use but that's all.
