Since Germany was occupied by USA the Germans were denied thinking in the area of natural science and were denied developments in geology as a base for a solid economy.. Germany do not have prospectors and mine engineers.. so it is easy for the green Merkel to declare the ban on internal combustion engines.. obviously the green liberals do not have experts able to advise theme on the scarcity of the battery making metals...and in general on the flow of materials.
